MMDVMHost – SUPERSPOT

I’m building a SUPERSPOT. This will be MMDVMHost based and will give me a dedicated process for each MMDVM board and mode I wish to use. I already have the MMDVM Boards for this project.

If you would like to build your own SUPERSPOT or just a hotspot of your own you can follow my instruction to achieve your goal. If you only have or only want to use one MMDVM board just follow the instructions by setting up ALL the modes you want for that board.

DV Hotspots – Rethink — Again

Yet another re-think about my hotspots. First I am building a portable SuperSpot which I am also creating build details that will be available for all once the build is complete. Once the build is complete I will work on how my other hotspots fit into my experience and what role in my Amateur Radio Experience they will play.

The SuperSpot will consist of one Raspberry Pi driving 3 or 4 MMDVM boards with one of those being a Duplex MMDVM board running DMR.

Personal DV MMDVM Hotspots

I currently have 3 hotspots in use and plan to active a 4th one in the near future.

Notes

  1. Hotspot Nº2 is a portable/mobile hotspot and is used mainly at work and other location away form home. I power it either via a DC to DC converter or a battery power pack I purchased from Amazon.
  2. A Dual TS board is planned for this hotspot leaving the DMO board available for inclusion in a planned portable hotspot.
  3. I have another DMO hotspot on order and will update what it will be use as when it arrives.
