Re: OpenSpot2 switching to another of configured WIFI's

Yeah... I should have mentioned that! Not sure about Android phones, but iPhones only advertise the personal hotspot when actually on that screen...and even then, only for a short time. So (at least with iPhone), timing and sequence of hooking up is important! Apologies for leaving that tidbit out. ...

Re: OpenSpot2 switching to another of configured WIFI's

I don't know the settings...but I recall it was several minutes before it tried the next entry. On at least one occasion, it never connected to the next entry. That prompted me to switch the slots. I don't see any setting that would alter the number of retries or the timeout span, nor do I know the ...

Re: OpenSpot2 switching to another of configured WIFI's

Try putting the vehicle in the first slot, home in second slot. In my experience when any WiFi disconnects, the OS2 appears to start searching at the top of the list. With the vehicle first, you won't have to wait for the search on the home slot to time out and the search the vehicle slot. Works wel...

Re: openspot2 and wires-x node

No other way! Build/use an existing Linux/Unix server and install/configure the reflector app. You have to create a communication bridge to your room. Yaesu provides a connect path from Wires nodes to your room, but doesn't provide a path for non-Wires users.

Re: Wires connection

Gents...out of desperation, I've wiped the radio and the OS2. Reloaded only what's needed to get basic communication to the Internet for the OS2 and manually added both a VFO entry and a mem channel to the radio. Apparently, mem channel 1 in the radio has the priority flag set by default after a res...

Re: Wires connection

Actually, the flashing "P" appears in both VFO (same freq. as mem mode) or memory mode as I stated previously and the radio is not in dual receive mode. Interestingly, when starting from memory mode the radio returns to VFO mode after the timeout. I've tried both deviation settings with no joy. The ...

Re: Wires connection

I think the link you posted was shortened and your intended reference is http://manuals.sharkrf.com/openspot2/en/wires-x-button.html Thanks, but I've read through that section several times and it doesn't provide any additional info that might help. I do understand using the WiRES-X button doesn't c...

Wires connection

I'm having an issue with creating a reliable Wires connection to the OpenSPOT2 using an FT2D. I've tried all combinations of deviation, power, YSF, FCS, etc...and multiple times The issue occurs on both V38 and V39 firmwares. The radio is set to single V/M and I've tried both VFO and Mem modes. When...
