Re: [Won't work because of limitations in PiStar / MMDVHost] New feature in hotspot mode

Hi Angelo, I just tried turning off the radio and turning it back on after a few seconds. MMDVMHost (on OSX) woke up hotspot mode on the radio again after a few seconds. I will try doing this for longer periods to see if it still wakes up OK. Seems MMDVMHost will continuously look for the modem if i...

Re: [Won't work because of limitations in PiStar / MMDVHost] New feature in hotspot mode

Hi Marc, Actually update is fairly fast on my network. it would be great to have a "reset MMDVMHost" button... In my fork, in expert page, you can stop/restart all services, + kill MMDVMHost (if it's stuck, when you stop stop services , it takes many minutes before getting killed). Cheers. --- Daniel

Re: [OFF TOPIC - PiStar] I have detected an error in the software pi-star ver 4

I just checked (by doing an "upgrade" from the "expert" page on Pi-Star and RC8 is now available. It comes with a fairly large number of Debian "Buster" updates (the operating system underneath the PiStar platform). Yes, but there is no digital related software update between RC7 and RC8, it just r...

Re: Hotspot mode failing after 2/10/2020 updated

Hi Marc, Running all night, no problems with dumping out of hotspot mode. I think we should close this problem, and recognize that the RF can get into the USB cable supplied by Radioddity with the radio (that we use to interconnect the RPi and the GD77. Documentation should be added to recommend ins...

Re: [OFF TOPIC - PiStar] I have detected an error in the software pi-star ver 4

Hi, I see transmission lost everywhere (and some late entry). Are you using a MMDVM hat ? Is it calibrated (sorry, I cannot see the BER value on the glossy screen). It would worth the effort to check that using pistar-mmdvmcal, from the command line (don't forget to set the correct frequency (e/E), ...

The antenna is external. Daniel, the connection can be seen in the picture.

Oh, and now I understand it's a joke on your part :lol: :lol: :lol:

The main thing is that the whole works reliably, perfectly.

:D ;)

I've installed a torroid choke around both the power feed and signal feed USB connections to the Pi Zero W.

Now we'll see if it dumps out of hotspot mode...
Okay, let's see.

Cheers.

Re: Update 21st Feb

Hi Marc, Daniel, I attached the DMESG files from the Hotspot mode dumping back to regular GD77 mode a couple of posts ago. I should have some ferrite core filter torriods later in the week and I'll test with those in place. I'm now testing with the GD77 out of the charger base in case that is what i...

Like change it to -3dB or something and exit the menu. It will get saved. but go back to the menu to change something else and as soon as that option i...
