HotSpot not working

Post by VK6NJP » Tue Nov 19, 2019 11:56 pm

When I boot up Pi-Star the Mode Enable and Network status lights both go green after a few seconds go back to red and of course the Hotspot does not work is there a setting on the GD-77 that I have missed ? HELP :(

Thank you in advance

Did you hold down the black button (below PTT) on the side of the radio when powering on? Release after the opening CW

You may like to keep an eye on this thread

Basically it looks like the hotspot stops transmitting if left on a quiet TG.

Transmitting to your HS seems to fix the problem, but its still a bug that needs to be fixed, once I work out why the HS stops transmitting
