P25&NXDN

Post by markw4itg » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:33 pm

So my question about P25 & NXDN is this..... If this device isn’t MMDVM is it going to be able to connect to the same reflectors as PiStar & MMDVM? Or is it going to have only it’s own connections to connect to?

We'll add support for P25Reflectors and NXDNReflectors, so yes.

Any kind of a time frame? I know you don’t like to give these kind of answers but soon is VERY vague. I mean for 3 times the price of a Chinese dongle P25 & NXDN should be top priority I bought 2 of these (openSPOT*2’s). Really the device shouldn’t have been released without these modes working. I would’ve rather waited to buy it & have everything working than to have spent $500US to wait & wait & wait for these two modes to come along.

Not trying to be a jerk here, I know these modes aren’t popular in Europe and not as popular as DMR (BM has gone down hill in my opinion), Fusion (I’ll never own another Yaesu again), D-Star (over priced & antiquated technology), & POCSAG paging (I just don’t get it, again pagers are so antiquated, it’s called text messaging on your smartphone just about everyone has these days).

I’ve spent a lot of money for Kenwood multi protocol radios and would like to keep them in P25 & NXDN modes. Sorry but I don’t subscribe to cheap Chinese junk radios like most of the ham community does.

Other than that it’s a wonderful, rock solid, & bullet proof device so far. Thanks for the quick reply.

Beta firmware with POCSAG support will be released this week. NXDNReflector support is coming probably next week. We're still working on P25. There's no time estimate for that yet.

Good news, I know P25 is almost unknown in Europe but it is the best of all !~
