Checking out other talkgroups?

Post by kb9mwr » Sun Apr 08, 2018 11:02 am

Seems the main reason folks are buying the low power hotspots is do they can check out other talkgroups.

I am kind of in dark on all that stuff as it seems silly to me to have a HT to talk 20 feet to get on a proprietary network over the internet. Is there a piece of software that can do that and bridge it to analog if you have ambe dongle? (edit; yes its called analog_bridge https://github.com/N4IRS/Analog_Bridge)

For those into QRP VHF/UHF digital here are the flea power options that I know of;
dv4mini
openspot/sharkrf
zumspot/jumbospot(china knock off)
dvmega

What would be nice is a webpage where you can select the s*** you want to listen to, and it broadcasts that out over the net with icecast/etc. Not sure how doable that is yet.

It should be noted that the jumbospot is a cheap low-quality knockoff of the zumspot. Don't expect them to work/last long.
