Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

First off, I only mentioned ONCE that the OS2 is overpriced. Go check my past posts. I hesitated to bring up the OS2 price as I know it is a sore spot. My apologizes. My bad. If you are actually a ham you would know what a hamradio device looks like. I'm an Extra Class US amateur, so you don't have...

Wi-Fi range that will cover our house, not just cover the inside of our car. 5. Those wonderful useful led lights (like the Legacy OS has on the front) O...

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

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.

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

The Openspot 2 is a step down from the original Openspot and smart hams are avoiding the Openspot 2. I guess I'm a dumb ham. I think the openSPOT 2 works great for what it was designed for. I like the fact everything is inside the case. No external antenna connector to damage when going mobile. USB...

Re: Web interface Hell

What is your RSSI under network status? You may need to put it closer to your WiFi access point. Are you using the power supply that came with the openSPOT?

Re: Problem: Openspot2 with Samsung S7

Your phone can only have one turned on for the following reasons. Activating the hotspot will create a wireless access point that you will connect your openSPOT to. Your cellphone then provides an internet connection over the cellular network. Activating WiFi on your phone allows you to connect your...
