Is there a guide to setting up hotspot mode?

Post by G0NHF » Thu Jan 23, 2020 6:22 pm

Hi,

Is there a guide you can recommend to setting up hotspot mode?
A website or a pdf guide maybe....?

Just thought I might give it a go when I get the chance.
I’ve already got the kit just need the info on setting it up.
Thanks everyone.

Hi,

with pistar it is quite easy. Just follow the instructions on the pi-star website. In the config you select GD77 Hotspot. Thats it. Beforehand you turn on hotspot mode in gd77 config. Connect the GD77 to the raspberry PI with the data cable. Switch on the Raspberry and the GD77. Do the neccesary setup procedures. With Brandmeister it is fairly simple. On my setup I just changed the config from my old DVMega Hotspot to GD77 and it worked straight away.

Hi,

And don't forget to turn hotspot mode ON in 'Options' menu (select 'MMDVM' when using a Pi-Star).

Cheers.

And here is a website which should be useful to pi-star beginners: https://amateurradionotes.com/pi-star.htm
