USB port

Post by vk2yhx »

Just wondering, if I were to use the device portable whilst i am on holiday in Europe, how do i access the internet? Normally i would use a USB port to attach the 3G/4G dongle on the Odroid box and dvmega. Is there provision for such external access ? I am trying to find a way to have easy access to most digital modes whilst 'on the road'... thanks

Dear vk2yhx,

You can use openSPOT while on the road with a 3G/4G ethernet adapter like this one: ... R3020.html

Reflector connections can be managed with your radio.

On the iphone, if you use the USB to Lightening cable, connect to that router USB port and switch on tethering, you will get a message to set up a hotspot via USB, make sure you click trust the device then you have a wired connection between the phone and that router. The ethernet port should then allow you to connect the opespot up.
