What kind of digital frequency? You can't listen to just any digital frequency with a hotspot.So if I got one I would be able to listen to a digital frequency that is about a hour away?
Yes. I have not heard of any commercial use of the cheap amateur radio type hotspots.Oh its ONLY amateur radio networks?
Tell that to the guys who got their license from a box of Cracker Jacks. When I made a HF contact to someone around the world, it was a real accomplishment. But these guys who use a hot spot to do the same thing, to me it means nothing as they’re making a 3 foot contact from their $30 HT to their hot spot.Talking over the internet isn't REAL ham radio.
Remember Brandmeister 310 a while back?Could you imagine if everyone that had heard the worldwide CQ had then replied back? It might overheat that guy's receive.
It got bad enough that they limited it's use. So many hotspot loops (2 hotspots on same freq) kerchunkers that I'm pretty sure it cooked finals on more than one repeater... it was a madhouse.Not me. I've only been a Tech ticket holder since July 22nd. But if you remember it, then whatever it was it must have been something though.
