Re: CW ID

The openSPOT2/3 supports CW ID both in CW and FM. The openSPOT1 only supports CW ID only in CW. Both modes can be used for a CW ID as required by amateur radio rules. OK, but is there a way to 'convert' (for lack of a more correct term) it to support FM mode instead of CW mode? Mine's obviously lon...

CW ID

Hey, Norbert!
I realize that the openSPOT1 does its CW ID on SSB (why?) - as opposed to the openSPOT 2 & 3 doing it on FM analog, but is there a way to 'convert' it so that it Tx's the CW ID on FM analog instead? Perhaps via the Dashboard or maybe a slight mod to the board or whatever?

Re: General power-related Question

OK, thanks, Tyrbiter. That'll give me a better idea as to how long I can operate them on battery power before having to recharge.

General power-related Question

Just a general question regarding the openSPOT 1's power consumption. Approximately how many mA's does it use under 'normal' circumstances? I have it and a TP-Link TL-WR802N mini router connected to a 5000 mAh portable battery (dual outputs) and would like to just approximate how long I can run both...

Exactly, Robert. I would like to know what caused it so IF it happens again, I can have a better idea as to how to correct it.

OK, here's a link to the very short (about 6 seconds' worth) video of the problem:

Problem with dashboard

Having a bit of a problem with my online Dashboard, but only on one of my computers - seems to be working OK on the other laptop, though.

Re: Open spot keeps connecting disconnectine

Got my openSPOT working again Norbert. Thanks for the assistance in the past - I just changed out my WiFi router and cable modem with something new and it's working again.
