Future OpenSpots...

OpenSpot 3/4 Features

For Maximum Flexibility, Connectivity and Portability.

> Allow manual selection of a saved "WiFi Connection"
> inc 2.4 & 5Ghz WiFi
> inc Etherenet Connection, for Home & some 4G Routers
> inc SMA Antenna Sockets for external WiFi & Radio
> inc a LiFe battery for @ 12~24hrs use, @ 2000mAh

Other items to think about..??
> Small display to show key items, Callsigns, Name, TG's/YSF's etc
> Button(Tap) to cycle through profiles, "Hold" to switch

Ideal "Max" size @ 10cm x 6cm x 2.5cm

Now for a real wild one for ultimate options.. Add a "TNC"
Something like TNC3 which is BT & battery powered.
I have one, for use with my AT-868/Tablet, very compact.
One less device, one less power connector.

I think that is a bit of an exaggeration. If you exclude the TNC option.

I would estimate an additional materials cost, inc small display of @ $80~100 (Bulk will be cheaper)
I don't know RFShark design/manufacture capability.. So that extra cost is a guess @ $45~50

I would estimate max $ at @ $350
I would pay that for the extra features/capability
