How about "WIFI SSID" ?

And "Wifi RSSI"

Both these would be nice when you do not have access to the dashboard.

BTW. Great work on PISTAR. :D

I believe the OP is wanting to issue some sort of command from his radio and for it to speak this information to him or something. He probably doesn't have SSH access if he doesn't have access to the dashboard.
If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.

WiFi SSID and RSSI query for D-Star mode added;

Add some commands to your pistar-remote for "wifissid" and "wifirssi"

Code: Select all

[d-star]
# UR fields
svckill=SVCKILL
svcrestart=SVCRSTRT
reboot=REBOOTPI
#shutdown=SHUTDOWN
wifissid=WIFISSID
wifirssi=WIFIRSSI
#8Ball=8BALL
Please remember that this can give away information you might not want to give away on a repeater, so repeater keepers probably wont want to add these, or maybe want to keep them commented out.
