Vocoder - types

I have a simple question about voice encoders that Google simply would not answer :) I want to buy a new radio or two, but I see that there are some different voice encoders. Are these different encoders compatible with each other or will they not be able to communicate? Will the Openspot read them?...

Re: Repeater setup

Forgot to tell; the two repeater/link radios are set to "All call" to let through all traffic.

Re: Repeater setup

Hi again! I made a drawing enclosed to this post. Please take a look and see if this is possible. Will the request for TG999 (or other group) get lost in the repeater box? Or will it be a problem to send through two radios before the Openspot? I am refering to a typical DMR repeater box now being so...

Repeater setup

Hi! If I connect two dmr radios with a repeater box in between, where one radio is connected to a roof antenna, the other radio is programmed with the frequency of the Openspot - will the radio accessing the repeatersystem, be able to connect to groups on Brandmeister? In other words. Both repeater ...

Re: Transmit Distance

My Openspot goes 500 metres from my house with the stock antenna. Connected via multiple adapters, 30 metres of cable and into a Diamond X510, it goes 2 km. I connected a 13 watt DMR amplifier from Ebay (Aliexpress seller) that works like a charm. Now the signal is rock solid for at least 30 km. Lon...

Base antenna on OpenSpot as simplex link

Hi all! I did a test connecting the OpenSpot to a base antenna. I used "a lot" of different adapters from my drawer that started with sma and via bnc ended up with SO-259 going into the Coax cable :D Then 30 metres of Westflex 103 before it all ended in a Diamond X-510 on my roof - 90 metres above s...

Re: Problems after update

First, thank you to those who wasted their time trying to help me. The problem is solved. I went into the Brandmeister user dashboard and found that I suddenly had TWO openspots. They had different IDs. Then it all cleared for me. When I had upgraded the firmware of the OpenSpot, of some kind of rea...

Re: Problems after update

I installed the even newer uptdate that came a few days ago. No change. I cannot find any AutoCal? I saw it the first time I set up the modem, but is nowhere to be found in the user interface now. I tried manually all modes A-F. No result. I can use parrot 9999 and get a good answer from the openspo...

Re: Problems after update

Thanks for the reply! I have already checked this as I have seen others on the forum trying this. It did not help at all. When I call the parrot, I can see this under the Status tab: To: 242997 (Norwegian parrot) From: 24(xxxxx) Private DMR voice call from modem At: 00:13:38 (length: 00:02) After th...

Problems after update

Hello! I am a newbie to DMR. Got my Shark openspot a couple of weeks ago and my first DMR radio less than a week ago - Kydera DM-760. I programmed the radio and it worked fine, made an instant QSO across the country. Parrot worked fine. Then I upgraded the firmware on the Shark openspot. After that,...
