The SharkRF Openspot is an all-inclusive hotspot device, built for the purpose of connecting you to a DMR/DSTAR or Fusion network, in the event that you don’t have a nearby repeater. All-inclusive means that you just need to plug-in this device to your network (currently only a hardline Ethernet connection is available – WiFI will be added in a later version), so a quick setup, and you are on the air. No other hardware, such as an Android device or Raspberry Pi, is needed.

I used one of these devices for a couple of weeks before posting this episode. It works very well in a home environment. I haven’t tried to use it mobile because it has no WiFi, and because I like my BlueDV hotspot for mobile use. But setup of the Openspot at home is quick and easy, and remains very reliable.
