Re: TGIF security key

TGIF has a new server. If you put your callsign and "passw0rd" into the openSPOT, you will connect in "Legacy" mode, i.e. no authentication because everyone is using the same password. It is up to the individual talk group managers if they will accept "Legacy" connectio...

Re: TGIF security key

Same place as you enter the BrandMeister password. Maybe use the openSPOT "profiles" and have one profile as BrandMeister and another as TGIF so you don't have to change the password all the time? I just go into the DMR connector settings and change the password when I connect to TGIF, hav...

TGIF Network upgraded server

Just a heads up the TGIF Network https://tgif.network/ upgraded their server on April 25 to the latest generation of their software. The talkgroups available under the new server are somewhat different from the "legacy" system. Not sure where SharkRF pulls its TGIF Network talkgroup listin...

Re: Using the OS3 in the car with a dedicated Hotspot?

I run a Harmon Spark 2.4 GHz 4G/LTE WiFi hotspot from AT&T on the OBD2 connector. It serves as a dedicated WiFi for the "connected" radar detector and the openSPOT3. Works OK, I have a 10 Gbyte/month plan, total add-on is about $45/month to the mobile phone bill. Most of the data is us...

Re: Modify the /OpenSpot3 in D-Star transmission?

My guess is they just need to change the "message" field in the openSPOT3 D-STAR settings to their name and QTH, instead of whatever default is in there. I changed it to my Yaesu radio type, but left the openSPOT3 in there to indicate to other D-STAR users that I was cross-mode through the...

Re: Wires-X room listing for XLX server

It's not really XLX making a "choice" here, the Wires-X protocol requires a frequency field, so XLX is just filling it in with something, which may or may not be useful when the packet is returned to the radio. YCS servers have the same issue. YCS310 for example, returns 441.135 MHz as its...

Re: Wires-X room listing for XLX server

The "auto switch" feature of Wires-X has been built into the radio since the FT-1D was released. Here's page 14 of the FT-1D manual, which clearly states at the bottom in the outlined "Tip" box that the radio will jump to the frequency advertised by the Wires-X node. That makes s...

Re: Wires-X room listing for XLX server

Yes, in order to get the listing of rooms from an XLX server, you have to check the "ignore Wires-X commands" box. Otherwise the OpenSpot3 would intercept the outgoing Wires-X packet, and produce a list of the 5 configurations and all of the YSFReflectors available, and the XLX server woul...

Wires-X room listing for XLX server

When I push the Wires-X button to get a room/module listing when connected to an XLX server, the radio changes off of the OpenSpot3 frequency to the frequency sent by the XLX server, 437.000 MHz, which is the default compiled into the XLX server software, and the room/module listing never appears. T...
