Unfortunately Pi-star is built upon an image that does not include a desktop gui so you only get console access on a monitor plugged into the HDMI port.

In order to get a desktop gui you'd have to install all of the required packages.
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.

Looks fine!
What else do you expect?

If you like to configure your hotspot, you have to open a web browser on a different device and let it open the address which you can see on your screenshots ;)

He might need MMDVM, as I don't see any mention of it, nor I see it on any photo. :roll:

Also think he needs an mmdvm simplex or dual hat to get any radio signal.
