Nextion 3.5 screen for Hotspots

I’ve used Pi-star now for around a year and a half. The first screen I used with the Zumspot was a 0.96″ OLED screen (I thought it was awesome!) but after a while I started seeing other amateur radio guys were using the Nextion screen/s These are an amazing piece of equipment they run on … Read more

MMDVM Hotspot with ZUMspot Pi

So I’ve entered the relatively new digital modes (for me anyway) of DMR & YSF. This requires either a digital repeater or personal hotspot to access. The popular way to do this is with a software suite called MMDVM and currently there’s two Raspberry Pi images available that take care of having to build everything … Read more

Meadowbank Fire activates Cambridge IMT

I got a phone call at around 17:45 to ask me what I had planned for the evening! I was just a little non committal at first, but after I phoned the contact from the IMT the picture was looking pretty grim so I put aside my reluctance and headed to Cambridge. This is the … Read more

Images in posts?

I’ve just noticed that most of the images that should be visible within posts appear as broken links!  All the images are on the server, there seems to be something wrong within WordPress, or mySQL. At first I thought no problem, that’s an easy fix…  No its not! as this will require me to edit … Read more

IPv6/4 Dual Stack With Billion 7404VGOX

I’ve just enabled IPv6 on my ADSL router (Billion 7404VGOX) So I just need to find out if the IPv6 assigned to me is dynamic or static because if it’s static I can then enable routing for my T2TAS APRS server. I’ve only been trying to get this working for around 3 months! Amazing what … Read more
