Re: Simplex jumbospot issue

I did a SD card swap and the HS worked perfectly. I have now reflashed the SD card and all appears to be working as normal. :) :) :)

Thank you very much for your patience and guidance. I have learnt a lot with this problem.

Re: Simplex jumbospot issue

1. The LEDs worked as described. The HS worked momentarily and then stopped. 2. When the HS was starting up a set of LEDs flashed (though I am uncertain how many times), then the RED light was flashing slowly at first and then rapidly after MMDVM start up. Shortly after that the RED light stopped al...

Re: Simplex jumbospot issue

When I had the problem, the log stated " unable to read the firmware version after six attempt s" Ok, that indicates to me that the hat is not booting correctly. First check to make sure you do not have any boot jumpers installed. What do the LEDS on the hat do when you power on the hotspot from a ...

Re: Simplex jumbospot issue

When I had the problem, the log stated " unable to read the firmware version after six attempt s" That would imply a problem either with the radio module, a flaky connection to said module, or possibly an undersized power-supply. I dismantled the HAT from the Pi0 and reinstalled. Perhaps I will do ...

Flashing the SD card di...

Re: Dashboard = Color|Colour - Blue is new Red

I am blind in my left eye. My good eye gets very tired after awhile.
I wonder if there is way to either have BOLD FONTS or change the colour of the font so as to improve visibility?

Thank you

Re: Jumbospot WiFi issue

Thank you for your responses.

The problem was solved after I assigned STATIC IP addresses to each of the hotspots

Jumbospot WiFi issue

Good day! I have two jumbospots (one for C4FM and one for DMR) both of which are rather temperamental. There are times that both will connect to my PC via WiFi and there are times when they will not. When they do not, they work in the background (I can communicate on C4FM and DMR with my radios), ho...
