January 15th 2019 Show and Tell
We had a good turnout at Minsky’s on the 15th. As there was a lot of interest in the ZumSpot I brought for show and tell.
This is a high level follow up of my experience with a Zumspot. As the Zumspot was my first hotspot I went for a turn key hardware solution which I purchased from Ham Radio Outlet.
I have since built several hotspots from ebay and components purchased at MicroCenter. Complete details on these builds in a future post.
All of the hotspots I am running use PiStar as the operating system which is available at the link below. Very easy to get up and running and it support multiple modes.
No need to reinvent here in this post, I strongly recommend the post below by KE0FHS. It was the play book I used while standing up my first Hotspot.
