Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

I agree thats why I'm hanging onto my original openspot

if it ever fails I go with a zumspot

shark rf has lost my vote by no longer supporting the product

my biggest gripe was removing the rj45 connector

Re: TYT Radio not getting out through openSpot

I didnt see this mentioned I use color code 1 and timeslot 2, TS 2 is key to getting it working properly make sure you are using talk group 9 aka local for cross mode That should not be the case - the OpenSpot works with either TS1 or TS2, as both are in use during transmissions. Just pick one. OK ...

Re: RF out too low

I mounted my openspot on the inside of the window vertically and added a nagoya NA771 antenna to it
it now covers approx 1 mile around my village
you can buy dmr amps on ebay for as little as $100

Re: New guy looking at SharkRF and Nano Spot

after playing with allstar for quite a few years
I say avoid any device that uses a raspberry pi
as they say it'll crash when you least expect it
the shark rf I just in and it works
however I only use it for dmr and know nothing about dstar and its use there
