QuadNet callsign routing for D-Star

I have an OpenSpot3 on the way. It is basically every single thing I wanted, with a few exceptions. One is callsign routing. The Trust system callsign routing is simply outdated in 2020. The OpenSpot's inability to do full ircddb callsign routing is the only reason I still run a Pi-Star. Making this...

Re: Changing D-Star reflector with DMR radio

Forgive my inaccuracy. Managing D-Star reflectors, it is simply burned into my brain that Mod A is 1, Mod B is 2, and so forth.

Re: Siri Integration!

This is very unlikely--if not downright impossible--given that Apple does not license Siri out. This makes sense, given that Apple is a hardware company. On the other hand, Google Assistant would be technically possible. I managed to get it up and running as a test on my XLX reflector. I took it dow...

Re: Internal battery

Replaceable batteries seem to have fallen out of favor everywhere. I don't like it, but I can understand why. The physical design of the device must be completely different, and the battery itself must be packaged differently. From a manufacturing standpoints, the easiest way to do this would be to ...

Re: Changing D-Star reflector with DMR radio

Once extended, will it become a 6 digit code with 3 digits for all reflectors?

ex. 100103 for REF001C

Changing D-Star reflector with DMR radio

After ordering the OpenSpot3, I have been reading the manual and trying to prepare my code plug. I found this following in the manual: --------------------------------------------------------------- "You can change servers using a DMR radio with a private call to a special 5 digit long DMR ID which ...

Re: AMBE and FM on OpenSpot3

This isn't a be-all, end-all issue for me. I just like to play with things.

Echolink, IRLP, and Allstar are their own networks (more or less), populated predominantly by FM users.

Re: Transcoding: Soundquality ?

I think it will ultimately depend upon the depth of settings available in the interface. I run my own transcoding hardware; and if you work at it, you can completely match the audio as if it were a native radio. I have been talking on a FT2D and had at least one individual comment about how good my ...

Re: AMBE and FM on OpenSpot3

I fully understand that this is not something Shark is pursuing; but from a hardware perspective, there is no such thing as a 'digital only' radio.

Re: Why no dual slot support?

Given that dual slot requires a duplex hat with Pi-Star, the OpenSpot3 will never be able to do that with the simplex radio is probably has. Firmware updates alone will not be able to make it work.
