    Introducing the NANO-DV Hotspot from Micro-Node International

    The Nano-DV Hotspot is a complete Plug-N-Play solution for linking with D-STAR DCS, XRF and REF reflectors as well DMR, P25 and Fusion reflectors. The hotspot includes a built in 70 cm transceiver for communicating with the various digital handheld radios from ICOM, Yaesu, Motorola, Connect System and Tytera. All hotspot control and monitoring functions are accessed using the built in LCD touch screen graphical user interface.

    The Nano-DV Hotspot is perfect mobile solution and only requires an internet connection (Wired CAT5 or WiFi) and a 5VDC@500ma maximum power source.

    Looks like it's running the DV4mini software inside. A bit pricey compared to DV4mini alone but it is all in one little box with a display. Would be great for travel. I really enjoy the DV4mini. Mostly use it for P25 and D-Star but have used it on Fusion and DMR as well.

    Interesting... after an announcement their website doesn't even mention the Nano-DV, only the Nano-Node.

    To me, being a User of the dv4mini Raspberry Pi combination, it looks like they put the dv4mini, a raspberry and a raspi display in a neat cabinet. which isn't that bad anyway. Most difficult in Amateur Radio homebrewing is finding or building a cabinet.....

    Awesome piece of equipment. It is everything that Mark says in his introduction. Many of us have tried to mimic this little unit but have not found a solution to an "all encompassed package" where the dv4mini and the RPi are bundled together making less items to carry. This unit to go portable only requires a hotspot (being either your phone or a separate hotspot) and a battery just like one would use to charge a cell phone and then you are portable!!! I have used it portable on my 1 1/2 hour trip to work and then back and only had issues when I got surrounded by trucks or in low spots where cell coverage was not great. I applaud the work that Mark has done. It is first class and doesn't require the user to know Linux or how to program. Input your personal information into the unit and you are up and running in 5 minutes! Questions? My email is on my QRZ page. Jerry, KG5JBC

    A fellow ham bought one at Dayton. It will NOT do XRF reflectors. An update to fix this was promised soon at point of sale but it is now almost dec and no update. He says he has reached out to the company on several occasions but no one has returned his inquiry. Since all we use up here is xrf he now has an unused expensive paperweight and no support to fix it.

    So buyer beware. The stated abilities are incorrect.
