Wires-X with Openspot 2

Post by PY4CK » Fri Nov 30, 2018 7:50 pm

In the wish list for a future update (which I would love it to be asap) would be the full support for Wires-X capability as there is in other popular hotspots.

Hi there,

I have a jumbospot that accepts the Wires-X command and once connected I can use the available list of reflectors to navigate directly from the radio. For C4FM I use a Yaesu FT-2DR.

This has nothing to do with the Wires-X network. Support for the Wires-X button in the OS2 will be added in a later firmware upgrade.

Having just got on the C4FM bandwagon, I heard some of the pi based hotspots emulated some of the wires functionality by listing room names and such on the radio. Glad to see this is on the update radar.

Many promises.... In 2016 There was already pledged that there was VW for the C4FM modem. I'm talking about the first version. Now version 2 There is we can forget it I think. I now work with a Yaesu FT-70DE.

What do you mean by WM?

We never announced that there will be Wires-X button support for the openSPOT1, we just mentioned that we plan to do it. We did not have time for that, but now the openSPOT2 will get the functionality. We are already working on it.
