Re: I'm lOOking for some soldering advice

It wouldn't take very much work to design and prototype your own shim. The hardest part would be making every other hole slightly offset so that it would force a good connection on the pins. (like the ZUM radio shim does) Then you can order a set of 20 or so from jlcpcb or pcbway for relatively che...

Re: V4 still Beta?

someone who isn't really familiar with github is just going to plug in "pi-star" in a google search and end up at one of these places, not at Andy's github. https://www.pistar.uk https://forum.pistar.uk/ https://amateurradionotes.com/pi-star.htm https://www.mw0mwz.co.uk/pi-star/ https://www.faceboo...

Re: I'm lOOking for some soldering advice

So I found a solution that's a bit of a hack, but works well and completely eliminates soldering. The solution came about after I tried using a Pimoroni Fan SHIM with an RPi 4B that has a radio/modem hat, but found it to be not very effective: the CPU temp quickly shot up into the mid-orange range (...

Re: SD card says write protected in W10

Time for a new microSD card, and keep the current one as a back up.

Re: V4 still Beta?

Yes, but the wrong conclusion. As a new update to the dashboard was pushed out a day before the post. And continue to be. I'd also really appreciate a bit more info about the development roadmap. We have an aging stable release (3.4.17) that can't be used with the three most recent RPi boards, and ...

Re: V4 still Beta?

On the other hand, it might be viewed as a good thing that the rumor got posted here (with the clear caveat, "Let’s hope this is only rumors") so that it could be fact checked. What better place can someone post something like this in order to find out whether it is true or not?

Re: Brandmeister - static and dynamic duplicate

I think what is actually happening is that the talkgroup becomes auto-static when you key up, and that probably displays as dynamic wherever it is that you're seeing that. Auto-static is the hotspot equivalent of dynamic on a repeater. It has been a few months, but the last time I looked at the "My ...

Re: V4 still Beta?

I’m actually hearing rumors that development of pi-Star has basically stopped. Something about the developers walked away. Let’s hope this is only rumors. Not true. While development appears to have slowed way down over the last few months, there was a dashboard update on Nov 1st. There is only one...

Re: V4 still Beta?

Is it my imagination, or has it been in beta for a really long time? And 4.0 never came out of beta? In early January 2019, the final version of the Pi-Star 3.4.x codeline, 3.4.17, was released, and is currently the only stable release available. It can be run on the Raspberry Pi 3B, Zero W, and ea...
