Re: TGIF Network

Hi Norbert Will there be another Firmware update for the Openspot 1 at all to enable it to see the TGIF talkgroups in the drop list when in mmdvm mode, but so far the list was not moved to where the openspot ONE could see it can this be fixed at all ? Kind Regards Andy G7LRR I also would like to se...

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

Do these have the "macho hamradio look"?
Oh yeah, they all look like hamradio devices except that white thingy that looks like a baby "cordless mouse" for a kid's computer....... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

You've mentioned several times that you think the openSPOT 2 is overpriced. what do you think an openSPOT 2 should cost? I'm curious. And what would you be willing to pay for a hotspot that checked all your boxes? I love your requirement "that it actually looks like a hamradio device". What does th...

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

SharkRf lost half their hotspot market. I don't even know what this means. :roll: Be glad to explain. The OS2 will not appeal to hams like me. We want a hotspot that has: 1.Ethernet AND Wi-Fi 2. A hotspot that actually looks like a hamradio device. 3. Removable RF antenna, so we can easily increase...

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

Just realize there are MANY other US hams that think just the opposite of you. This is the problem for SharkRF. Many hams (like me) think the OS2 is an expen$ive Toy, while many other hams think the OS2 (with it's many limitations) is just fine. SharkRf lost half their hotspot market. IMO the OS2 w...

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

Sad to say that a nice display on the hotspot is NOT the same as looking at the unit via an iphone or browser in a computer. Yes the OS2 is small and portable, has no external RF antenna capabilities, poor wifi range AND looks like my grandson's Toy. This not a hotspot that many hams are looking for...

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

My original post was not to bash the Openspot2. I merely wanted SharkRf to realize that with the OS2 they are missing a huge marketplace segment of the ham world. I have been extremely pleased with my Openspot which I have had for some time. I replaced the original stubby duck with the long duck sup...

Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

I have been following the "Dealer" thread here with interest and decided to put up my 2 Cents. Full Disclosure: I have owned an Openspot for 1 1/2 years and have been very satisfied with it. However, I truly believe SharkRf has made a huge mistake with dropping the original Openspot and only selling...

Re: How many people are going to ask when the new openspot is going to come out??

Look into the Mirror and ask yourself: Why does this bother me?? IMO all these people asking questions show that there is much interest in the New Openspot 2. This should make Shark RF and Norbert VERY HAPPY. Now how much longer do we have to wait on the new OS-2?? Will it arrive before the Christma...
