ZUMSPOT USB STICK Noob Questions

Post by W6CJ »

Hello - hope someone can help:

1. Is there a way to config the Zum USB to be "open", so that other callsigns can use it on C4FM. DSTAR, etc?

2. Is there a way to use commands from my handheld (as with a Pi-Star) to change YSF/FCS Rooms and reflectors with the ZUM USB Stick?

3. How would I set up a PI-STAR dashboard to operate a USB STICK?

4. Is it possible to operate two ZUM USB Sticks on the same computer (as long as I avoid duplicate modes/rooms), and how would I set that up?


Thank you and 73,
Jay

Are you asking how to configure a Pi-Star RPi to use a ZumSpot USB, or are you asking how to configure and operate the BlueDV Windows software? Because I have never used the BlueDV software so I can't support it, so you'd need to contact whoever is responsible for that software or find some BlueDV forum and ask there. This is for Pi-Star related questions.

Set the node type to be public

I'm pretty sure you are asking if you can remote control BlueDV as Pi-Star already has this feature.

Select ZumSpot - USB Stick in the modem configuration.

Not that I know of.
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.
