Hot spots can be useful but we are leaving the domain of the radio into the Internet. As to using a hot spot in a car, one might as well use Echolink, or Skype! My only use of DMR for prepping is for increased privacy. Some radios even have encryption. Other than that, good'ol FM works as well. My next handheld might be the Ailunce, dual band DMR...

Great. Watch out for harmonics, the Pixie has no low pass filter... I stopped using mine because I was getting Reverse Beacon Network spots on 20m!

Hi Sparks.

Hello.

I have tried to update the forum software but will need to update my database server first. Since I have clients on that machine, I can't do so without risking major outages, so I will have to wait for the appropriate time... I reverted to the previous version of the software. Hopefully there won't be any glitches. Let me know if you notice anything weird. My avatar had disappeared but I reuploaded it. You might have to do the same.

Now the YouTube channel is on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/radioprepper

Sorry, I haven't posted much here lately but the YouTube channel takes a lot of my time ???

Future projects include finishing boxing up the MFT-40 and QCX, as well as a few improvements to my Soda-Pop. I have a couple ideas for antenna builds and evaluations. What is needed IMHO are more operating videos. Another couple months and the weather should improve...
