Sorry, but I don't understand. The dump you've included also have the names in the format "Walter R".
There are separate data elements for the first and last name. "Walter R" is the first name element containing his first name and middle initial. The last name element contains "Dudley".

Re: DMR ID name lookup

I referred to radioid.net dumps. They only have names in the format "Jerry L". The openSPOT does not use city, state, etc. information. Here's a few lines from today's dump (user.csv), including my own callsign info. The "missing" info is most certainly included: 3135461,K3SLS,Steve,Siegel,North My...

Re: APRS connector

Is there a slight misunderstanding in the discussion here? It is my understanding that OpenSpot2 sends the coordinates entered in the "Location settings menu", it does not have its own GPS and only send this info each hour or so. You can also have the OS2 send the GPS positions of your RADIO , but ...

Re: APRS connector

Where did you read about the 3-10 minutes recommendation? Simple search with Google. Many suggest as little as 3 min for a moving vehicle and 10 min for a stationary object (home, digi-peater). Considering that many vehicle route segments are less than an hour…the hour interval seems quite long, al...

Re: APRS connector

It is fixed at 1 hour. This update interval guarantees that the openSPOT location will be always shown on the APRS map. That's a pretty large difference from the generally accepted interval recommendations of 3-10 minutes (depending on the source). The shorter interval conforms with recommendations...

APRS connector

What is the beaconing interval for the APRS connector? Is it configurable?

Upgrade program?

Just curious if there will be any sort of trade-in/upgrade offer to move from OS2 to OS3?

Re: Factory reset?

Initially, I set up openspot 2 with my Yaesu FT70D and it worked for 5 days. But after messing with the setting trying to get to an FCS room I am toast. I did a factory reste on the radio. No difference. The onespot sees Americalink and I can here it but they don't hear me. The F AMS blinks wires b...

Re: Browser resets and looses connection to OS2

After wasting a lot of time watching the log without catching a disconnect, I took a different route. Of my three OS2 devices, only the one connected to FCS04/022 (American Ragchew) was consistently causing browser disconnects. Watching the connection activity showed a lot of "dirty data" flowing th...
