Re: A Newbie seeking advice

Oh, I forgot to answer the second part. Hotspots. There are many out there and most work/do the same thing(s), but the Zumboard (it's white) and some of the MMDVM boards built by fellow hams (multi-colors for the boards, but usually blue or green) are a better way to go, and thenn there are the Chin...

Re: A Newbie seeking advice

Well Keith, first welcome. second, DMR is the worst one to start with if you are just coming back into the hobby. Do not start with DMR, get into this one slowly the learning curve to program is the Matterhorn (not quite Everest, but steep) With a hotspot you can do many modes, DMR (stay away for no...

Re: DMRGateway Enable=1 reverts back to 0

Change your network 3 to network 4

Network 3 is the DMR2XXX crossover mode -- it will revert to disabled as it is reading the crossover state(s)

I had that Once or twice bu...

Re: New to pi-star ..HELP NEEDED.

Not in UK but I can help get Pi-Star running. But word of caution here, don't post the same message in multiple places, it may boost your post count but also will make answers show up all over the multi posts so you never know which one to follow. I can Zoom, but do not have me a host account. So in...

Re: Where did network 4 go?

OK, I did a quick read through that PDF, and boy do they need to be more direct and show the right stuff. You see, Pi-Star's DMR Gateway originally (I men in 3.4.17) did have 4 networks (making Network 4 actually the 5th), but you had to add it in manually, in Expert mode. Now I am NOT a developer, ...

Re: Dashboard displays (GPS) ?

The (GPS) is a link to https://aprs.fi/#!call=<the person's call sign>* Why the * ? Don't know. But you know when you set up Pi-Star and entered the Lat/Long in the General Section, that is what it is giving out, so people on other Pi-Stars can find you on a map in relation to them. My YSF has it - ...

Re: Saving the Pi-Star Image on Linux Mint 20

I use Win32DiskImager on my windows 10 but there is Balena ETcher that does the same thing -- many say to use that. Never worked right for me on Win10 But in Mint, it may work. Just look through your Package Manager for it or google Balena Etcher and go to their website to get help using that.

Re: Connecting to Pi-Star using Linux Mint 20

Couple things to try is drop .locah e.g http://pi-star/ If you can sewe the dashboard on another computer then go to the Configuration -> pi-star / raspberry (if asked) -> scroll to bottom. If you are on Wifi with this hotspot the IP will show up in the box -- If you are wired then you need to go to...
