Re: Brandmeister Talkgroups

I would also recommend the Texas talkgroup 3148 as a place for info on Brandmeister. They have a net on Tuesdays at 7pm central time. They usually have a Brandmeister expert put on a program. Also 3148 I a pretty active talkgroup with hams from US an Europe. They also have a Facebook page Brandmeist...

Re: Brandmeister Talkgroups

Normaly Openspot connects to the last talkgroup you were connected to unless you have set up auto connect which is not recommend because it sends pings on the network that are annoying. Best way to change is to have the channels programmed in your radio with the your Openspot frequency and the talkg...

Re: First photos and QSOs

Yes I simply unplug the Ethernet cable from the N150 and then power up the unit with a button on the battery pack. Then I turn on personal hot spot on my iPhone and wait for it to connect to the N150 and then plug the Ethernet cable back in and I am off and running. With 12,000 mah I should get seve...

DMR radio to DStar network?

Is this implemented yet? I was told on the air today that it wasn't and that it would never happen.

Re: US Retailer?

Grapevine has another batch on order that I believe is coming in the next shipment out of Estonia. I understand he has more coming this time but I would advise to order now if you want one as they are selling like hot cakes.

It was my understanding that the Openspot can only handle one talkgroup or reflector at a time. So it would seem that if I key up 3140 or 3148 tha...
