STATION:  M7WDX

Operator:  Larry

Station Time:  GMT  (UTC)

 

DMR ID:  2349357

D-Star ID:  M7WDX L

Fusion ID:  M7WDX-ND  

Fusion DTMF:  76134

 

I monitor DMR via:

YSF96265  00-hubnet-00

YSF44195 01-CQ-UK

YSF27793  00-CQ-UK-C4FM

YSF32592  US-AMERICA-LINK

Pi-Star Live Digital Voice Dashboard M7WDX

using either a Pi - Star 4 Repeater (WiFi) Hotspot linked to PC Dashboard or

via a little Pi - Zero2 W (WiFi) Hotspot linked to iPad Dashboard. Both run cool

w Heat Sinks, and I added 2 Fans to the Pi - Star 4 duplex repeater (1 pushes in

at the side of the case with filter and 1 pushes out @ the top of the case. Thus

when I apply a heavy load the Pi - Star 4 board runs cooler.

HOTSPOTS

Raspberry Pi - Star 4 Duplex Repeater Hotspot =  DMR | D-Star |  YSF (Wires-X reflectors) multi modes

TIP:added Extreme Cooling Fan Kit (5v) and a second Venting Fan (3.5v) w filter - to keep PI Star 4 running much cooler.

TIP: Without extra heat reduction the board can run VERY HOT dependent on setup and load/use.

 

Raspberry Pi - Zero2 W, with Modem Hat, Hotspot = DMR | D-Star | YSF (Wires-X reflectors) multi mode

Do not let its small size fool you, this little hotspot provides outstanding performance. Great value and low cost.
