Re: OpenSpot2 - Band?

UHF only.... Answered my own question after reading the release notes:

Are there any plans for a VHF version?
The openSPOT2 has a built-in antenna for the UHF band. Currently we don’t plan to ship a VHF (or dual band) version of the product.

OpenSpot2 - Band?

Yea! The new model info has been released :D

Will the new model be UHF TX/RX only like the original or does it have VHF TX/RX (i.e.; to bridge to a VHF repeater)

Re: Dual Band VHF/UHF device with WiFi and hardline

Mike,
Actually a dual band version would be great. You can also use it to bridge into a VHF repeater where the old version we were stuck in UHF only to make the bridge. But I am sure we will be told the release will be "soon" soon :lol:

Re: Yeasu Ft-70DR and DP-ID and sharkrf

DP-ID is "Digital Personal" ID which is a unique identifier that every Fusion radio has from the factory. The pages from the FT-70 manual you attached are talking about when you go into GM (group mode) you can save other stations unique identifier "DP" ID to identify who in in that group you set up....

Re: Yaesu DG-ID or DSQ

Norbert,
Were you able to follow what I was saying last?

Does the OS have the capability to add in a FW update to TX a DSQ code (00 thru 99) to provide the proper DG-ID? This will allow TX from FCS or YSF from an OS to tie into a DR-2X Fusion II repeater in bridge mode while on IMRS.

Re: Yaesu DG-ID or DSQ

Bridging with the OpenSpot works great with FCS/YSF/DMR when the repeater is not linked into IMRS and DG-ID TX:00 RX:00 but that is not the issue. It is not that the DSQ is not "touched" but the OS needs to TX a DG-ID/DSQ code in order to be used with IMRS. For instance: I have a DR-2X linked here i...

Yaesu DG-ID or DSQ

Nobert,
Any plans on adding DSQ or DG-ID to TX on the open spot? I would like to bridge a DR-2X using IMRS but the OpenSpot will not trigger the repeater due to no DG-ID/DSQ comming from the OpenSpot.

Re: Connect Openspot to my wires-x node

You can set up a bridge as Norbert mentioned. Since you are on VHF you will need to wait for the VHF version of the OpenSpot to bridge into the FCS or YSF system or use another device like a VHF DV4mini. I have RF Linked into a local UHF Repeater with my Wires-X Node and used the OpenSpot as a bridg...
