Re: Openspot3 turns off

I spoke too soon. OS3 running on a known good power supply and cable. Power LED was initially flashing red, then went solid red which indicates a charge error.

Re: Ethernet Port would make such a device just perfect!

I have to agree, it would be a great addition to have a wired Ethernet built in. Maybe another option would be to use a USB-C Ethernet adapter but it would have to powe the unit in addition to data transfer. POE comes to mind. My reasoning for Ethernet is stability over Wi-Fi.

Re: Internal battery

I beleive RFShark will have repair agents in the USA or contract to a company. It would also be a good idea to make the battery user replacable. Then people have the option, send it it or self replacement.

Re: Out For review

Bob: You just cost me $314.63 :) I read about the OS3 a week ago and did not pickup on all the game changing features. I knew it had a built in battery and that was not a big deal for me as the OS2’s are currently connected to a larger battery in a pack or the truck/car. After doing a little more re...

DMR Contact List

Hello: I am just getting into DMR and plan to use my OpenSpot 1 and 2 mobile. I just saw a difference in the OpenSpot's (1,2 and the new 3) which forces me to ask a question of the more experienced people using OpenSpot devices. 1) I see the OS1 does not get DMR ID database updates. How will this im...
