Re: Which MMDVM Board?

Hi Jason, It's been a while. I hope you and your family are all ok this virus thing has dealt out quite a nasty pounding on people and I feel for the many that have lost loved ones and are suffering. Our Uk spike in cases increased until for such a small chunk of the earths surface we have a had a h...

Re: MMDVM Pi Hat - FT3d works and FT991 doesn't

I am wondering if other posts regarding the 991 connecting to Pi-star are suffering the same problems as we do. Basically the MMDVM doesn't have an offset it is set at 438.800MHz and no offset. When it boots the pi-star logs in and hooks up the room and the FT991 can receive the C4FM audio no proble...

Re: MMDVM Pi Hat - FT3d works and FT991 doesn't

More experimenting today identifies that switch on both the Ft3d and the Ft991a; 1. Tune both to the hotspot frequency. 2. Select c4fm and ask for Wires-x on the Ft991a 3. The Ft991a sits there trying getting nowhere. 4. Trigger the Ft3d to do the same and it hooks up AND so does the FT991a which wa...

Re: MMDVM Pi Hat - FT3d works and FT991 doesn't

Hi Andrew, Yes, we've seen that issue postee on Youtube but that doesn't seem to do it by all accounts. I can't actually put hands on the Ft991a myself as Nigel is in 3 months isolation so I am trying to work either via internet remote control to his RT systems software or talking through step by st...

MMDVM Pi Hat - FT3d works and FT991 doesn't

Hi YSF Chaps, I am trying to help a friend, I assembled a couple of MMDVM Pi Hats and have set them up, one for d-star for me and the second for YSF They are in different QTHs so not interfering with each other in RF terms and both work, well the d-star one seems to and I'm pretty sure the YSF one i...

Re: Which MMDVM Board?

Jason, As ever thank you so much for your kind help. We ramped up another notch on the isolation factor yesterday so progress on this may cease as we may not be able to exchange necessary parts if a delivery doesn't arrive. Already we cannot meet, or be within 2m of each other and any surfaces we to...

Re: Which MMDVM Board?

Possibly a daft question Jason so forgive me if so. Could I use my wpa-supplicant file, go on the hotspot and configure it for Nigel then simply replace the Wpa_supplicant file with one setup for his ssid and password? I've got both versions of supplicant file and can see the SSiD nd Password entrie...

Re: Which MMDVM Board?

Hi Jason, Ok on the performance differences on the various Pi devices, that is a major difference. I have pre configured an sd card ready to with wifi settings but as we are both in high risk group for this virus we can't go out or meet. I don't know if the pi uses the Wpa_Supplicant settings file o...

Re: Which MMDVM Board?

Well Jason, I can let you know that you were spot on. The boards arrived, they weren't as shown in the pictures so definitely clone boards without markings. The build quality wasn't that great either but they work and I have tested both boards on a single Pi Zero (can't buy them here at the moment f...

Re: Which MMDVM Board?

Hi Jason, Thank you again for your support, technical and moral. I am in the position that the fellow radio amateur I am helping has already ordered the two kits whilst I was doing research, he was being kind and trying to say thank you for the help I have given him in not just this areas but others...
