Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

Either the Hotspot doesn't work right or the radio doesn't work right. No, they both work correctly, you just don't have channels programmed correctly in your radio. You should have one channel for one talkgroup, and if you want to talk on 20 talkgroups you need to setup 20 different channels, if y...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

That hotspot link is now showing 5 activations on TG 3108 from 65 minutes ago to 72 minutes ago... So something may be working... Yeah, looks like he finally created and entered the hotspot security code. Now he'll have to figure out his radio programming, and since you have experience with that so...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

The OP also has stated that they just recently (within the last week or so) obtained a hotspot and DMR radio. If true, then someone was using their DMR ID illicitly last fall. How do you figure? There is nothing that references any date of last fall. He could of purchased a used Nanospot recently s...

Re: Missing info or Dashboard change?

Well, poo. Yeah, it happens. My guess is its either power related (not enough voltage) or improper shutdown with people just pulling the cord instead of using the OS to shutdown the RPi. I wish we knew exactly what caused it so that it could either be addressed or at least inform others to prevent ...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

Not sure where you're seeing BM 4601 BrandMeister Master is set to BM 3102. From YOUR public BM dashboard. https://brandmeister.network/?page=hotspot&id=3182828 You had to have set 4601 at some time, it doesn't just get magically set to china on its own. It's logging into something. No, it isn'...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

I appreciate your help. A week ago a friend said "Get on DMR" so I bought a HotSpot and and MD-380 knowing nothing about digital radio. There's a lot of fine detail to this. I would say there is a learning curve. Check out Toshen's (KE0FHS) documentation. Maybe it will help as it explains...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

Interesting... That shows "Nano_hotSPOT" for hardware, yet the OP's recent posts indicate it is a DV-Mega I don't think he's got a DV-Mega, all he did was copy and paste the text from the dashboard main configuration page. It could also be the BM dashboard data is old and out of date, or ...

It wasn't removed. If a reboot doesn't solve your issue, it requires a reimage of the SD card as something must of gotten corrupted.

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

At this point I'm beginning to wonder if the hotspot is bad. Doesn't seem like it should be this hard. I doubt it is bad, I think you are just following instructions that are outdated as the process has been changed (for almost a year now). It doesn't appear that you are connected to BM currently, ...
