If you see that the dejitter queue drops to zero then it indicates that there are lost packets in the transmission. Lost packets can be caused by issues with:
- The server
- The server's internet connection (most amateur radio servers are running on unstable home internet connections not suitable for international links)
- The link between the server and your Wi-Fi router, or your internet connection
- Your Wi-Fi router
- The Wi-Fi link between your openSPOT and your Wi-Fi router
What you can do to avoid dropouts are:
- Use a different server, which has a stable connection (try BrandMeister servers in cross mode)
- Place the openSPOT close to the Wi-Fi router.
- Make sure the Wi-Fi bandwith is set to max. 20Mhz in the Wi-Fi router (see explanation here:

- Try switching Wi-Fi channel on your Wi-Fi router. Only channels 1, 6 or 11 should be used (see explanation here:
- Try using a different Wi-Fi router or internet connection
