Pi-Star General Discussions / Re: Issues with new firmware and Phone Hotspots
« Last post by VA3CKI on May 20, 2019, 10:00:50 pm »
I have the small jumbo spot from Robert. Was working great but yesterday I had to power  cycle it dozens of times to get the screen to show AND connect to my smartphone data/wifi hot spot.
Or it would drop out and then do this all over again.
Or it takes about 30 minutes (seems like) before it connects/display shows and connects.

Any ideas why??????????????

Recent travel to almost 3 hours non stop, it took 90 minutes before the screen showed up. Talked to somebody in Texas and it dropped off so I was talking to nobody.
I have given up trying to use this device, Even tried another SD card with pistar on it and same thing.
I have used this hotspot 2 or 3 times and handled it with kid gloves!

Any ideas out there??????????????

Hi N1KK

yes on multiple hotspots NEVER use same ID or Freq.
easy enough

use your 7 digit ID and add 2 digits
ie
xxxxxxx01
xxxxxxx02
xxxxxxx03



I also to keep myself straight rename Host name
configuration page
   General Configuration
       Hostname:

to match the ID suffix
xxxxxxx07

TGIF Hotspot Configurartion / adding second hotspot, do I need a second DMR id
« Last post by N1KK on May 20, 2019, 10:14:56 am »
I would imagine having both on at the same time might cause confusion on the same server.
What is the practice when adding a second hotspot.    My modem board for the second hotspot
should be in by weeks end and if I need a second DMR id do I just apply like I did for the first one?

I want to add this update which leads me to another question.
I got this info from the DMR id site

Hotspots: **** MMDVM, DV4MINI, openSPOT, DVMEGA, and all other hotspot type devices do NOT require a separate ID, use an existing ID only, do NOT request an ID for them ****
If you own more then one hotspot, use your personal ID number and add a 2 digit suffix, example: Radio ID 3020111, use 302011101, 302011102, ect.
NEVER operate multiple hotspot within range of eachother on the same frequency even with different ID's. This will create serious network issues in most cases.
Hotspots do not require repeater ID's.

If I add the "01" in my pi-star hotspot configuration id" and "02" in the second pi-star hotspot configuration,
will that automatically be recognized on TGIF, Brandmiester, etc.?   
I want to do this right.

Thanks,
Ken

TGIF General Questions / Re: Getting a repeater on the server
« Last post by 9Z4RG on May 18, 2019, 09:39:37 am »
Good morning

I have the same question.  I would like to add a repeater located in Trinidad and Tobago to the TGIF Network and would like guidance on the settings to be used (IP address, UDP Port etc).

Thank you

Robby, 9Z4RG,
