    Thank you for your comprehensive review. It answered a number of questions. I recently started to look at the available "HotSpots" and have concluded that the SharkRF OpenSPOT is probably the way to go. I'm still gathering information from local Hams... on the various aspects of user preference regarding equipment and connectivity. I'm currently a "Fusion" user and can certainly see the expanded possibilities.

    Hi Pascal. I must admit to being an old timer with not too much interest in newer modes and equipment BUT having watched your videos here and then seeing you published in QST I immediately read your review there and when it came up here I had to watch it. I am using two K3 xcvrs that I am still improving over time so there may be hope for me yet. It is interesting to see your growth in the hobby. I enjoy your curiosity and excitement as you open and discover each new topic and piece of equipment. Keep up the great and entertaining work! 73, Sid K3SX

    No worries. Swamped with SDRplay at the moment. When I come back from the UK ham fest we will get the skype round table going :)

    Anyone else totally hate watching a video of someone drone on when I could have read the text story in a minute?

    THIS IS "REALLY NEAT STUFF"!!! I'll admit that in the world of "DIGITAL COMM" I'M A RANK NOVICE, EVEN AFTER 55YR OF AMATEUR RADIO COMM I find this "NEW STUFF" (DMR) really, really COOL!!! And as long as I've been a HAM it's NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN MORE!!!

    Your statement OB was rather CRASS in that you seem to think that EVERYBODY KNOWS HOW TO GET AROUND THIS STUFF, I READ & LISTEN SO I CAN "LEARN"!!!

    Yes. I only watch videos if I know there is information that I seek in them.

    As for this is really neat stuff, and its never to late to learn more. The MMDVM project by Jonathan Naylor G4KLX is where the basis of the OpenSpot came from. If you truly want to learn, look into that project. You can roll your own. And you can connect it to real radios to build a high power hotspot or repeater that can be useful to more than one person.

    The Openspot is neat to me, but it's an appliance.
