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

I haven't disappeared and I am not short on appreciation for the help. and... while PARROT now works it doesn't seem that anything else does. I have carefully entered data into a new codeplug so I am not inheriting someone else's poorly defined data. I have 14 entries carefully matching Digital Con...

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

But how many times do I have to repeat the same statement. I guess enough for it to register and finally sink in. I see on his dashboard that he's now got both 3108 and parrot transmissions, so it looks like you've finally got him sorted. I just wanted to take a second and acknowledge you taking th...

Re: MMDVD modem to use

Thats what works for me but as Jason stated I am not on a Pi4.....in fact the page I bought it from said to use that modem. Yeah, I saw those instructions. There are a number of settings that will technically operate, but the main difference between selecting what the instructions suggested and wha...

Since it is a clone of a common dual hat use "MMDVM_HS_Dual_Hat (DB9MAT, DF2FET, DO7EN) for Pi(GPIO).

I wouldn't use "STM32-DVM/MMDVM_HS-Raspberry pi Hat(GPIO)" although if you don't have a RPi 4 it will probably work, but with a RPi 4 it won't initialize.

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

Based on the (previous) version of the hotspot last-heard page, I'm fairly certain it was showing some date that was last year The label "firmware" is actually the pi-star software version, not any login date. So he bought a setup that was already imaged with an older version of Pi-Star (...

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 ...

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'...
