DVAP (Digital Voice Access Points)

I am currently experimenting with Jumbospots and DV mini using Pi-Star for D-Star operation via my IC-7100 and ID-51A.

Jumbospot

Below are the spectrum analyser results. Not bad I am impressed, this is all without any external filtering.

I have achived a mile range with a less than ideal mobile dual band antenna setup, attached to the hotspot on the first floor (British English).

Overall the best hotspot I have tested so far.

MMDVM dual duplex

Slightly deaf and not as much output power when compared to the Jumbospot. Probably due to the close proximity of the antenna.

DV mini USB dongle

Tied to specific software in my testing. That software I found hard to aquire due to missing mirrors.
