Re: Addition power settings?

I went ahead and added the support for the extra power levels down to 50mW on my builds. I added 75mW and 100mW to it also. They are *rough* estimates.

One thing I have noticed is that the battery voltage makes a big difference to the output power. My battery was at 100% and the b...

[No response from OP] Hotspot Mode Exits When No Internet

I've noticed that the radio will exit hotspot mode whenever a connection to the internet is dropped on a Raspberry Pi. Sometimes it takes a while for it to come back, I've had a couple times where the radio won't go back into hotspot without restarting the Pi, even the radio. May be an issue on the ...

Re: Official 2.6.5 to OpenGD77 Latest...Best route?

There is nothing special you need to do. Just flash it the same as the stock official firmware. Also be sure to download the OpenGD77 CPS, as you'll need it and the drivers that come with.

Re: NA7Q - Unofficial Firmware Build [1/20]

Updated 1/20/20. I made some very minor UI changes. Mainly rearranging of menus. With more of it to come eventually. Some fixes to the blank screen issues. Thanks to the devs for fixing these things.
