Where can I buy a ZUMspot board on its own?

Seems difficult to get a board without case, SD card etc. Way too expensive.

I just want the damn board, anyone know of a supplier?

Re: .96 OLED Mounting Frustrations

I appreciate this is an older post but for interest I managed to mount a 0.96" display on top of ZUMspot v0.4 and a C4labs case. I used HotGlue (carefully applied) to the top two corners (GPIO end) only and a small plastic shim under to avoid shorts. It's very secure. I removed the pins from the scr...

Re: Add ID display column on Dashboard

Yeah, this could be handy. I imagine it's could also be possible to display the users registered name.
Then one could add, perhaps -2 to the second ID username.

Just thoughts.

Using a 'Dual Colour' serial OLED screen?

I've used a couple of OLED screens, via serial (IIC/!2C) interface, single colour, works just great. Might seems a daft question but if fitting a dual colour display, yellow blue for example, what will happen? Will it display one colour, can the colour be changed? Will it/can it use both? Is there a...

Re: Using Hotspots in close proximity to one another

Thanks Chris.

Putting an attenuator in line is a great idea, I'll do just that :) .. 10dB seems a good level, I'm never too
far away from the Hotspots.

Time to look on Amazon / Ebay.

Re: SD card partition auto expand optional

Thanks Andy

I assume the ".expand" file contains nothing within. That's great and offers an alternative to
manipulate the SD card to requirements. Otherwise I'm likely simply pedantic and shouldn't worry
about it at all :) . There's plenty of tools to deal with it.

All the very best.

SD card partition auto expand optional

SD card partition size auto expand is a great idea. It could be nice to remain in control. If wishing to install Pi-Star on a large(er) SD card for whatever reason, and/or customised installation Auto Expand could be a nuisance when it comes to backing up the SD card image rather than just the confi...

Using Hotspots in close proximity to one another

I seem to be collecting Hotspots for some reason, you can never have too many I suppose! There's a simple calculation: N + 1 N being the number of radios you already have plus another. I have 3 ZUMspot hats in fairly close (6") proximity to one another, C4FM, D-Star & DMR, all on different frequenci...

Re: ZUMspot v0.4 & I2C on-board interface usage for OLED screen

That's great!

I appreciate you taking the time to reply, it would have been easier than soldering directly
to the board. I have another ZUM board so next time I'll take that route.

ZUMspot v0.4 & I2C on-board interface usage for OLED screen

I note the ZUMspot (v0.4 in my case) HAT has convenient I2C interface header available. Measuring shows 3.3V and GND go to the appropriate GPIO headers but SDA & SCL don't. I successfully have an OLED screen operating connected directly to the GPIO pins (as type 3) but am wondering if it's possible ...
