Today, I will write down all the operate process when assembling my MMDVM & Raspberry Pi DMR Hotspot.
You can learn Why you need a DMR Hotspot from previous blog.
All the DMR Hotspot components are in below picture. Assemble all of them together.
1. Download SDFormatter software. Before flash the pistar image, need to format the TF card.
2. Download Imagewritter software: Win32 Disk Imager. It will help to Flash Pistar Raspberry image to the TF Card.
3. Download Pistar Raspberry Software Image, from www.pistar.uk
"RPi" image is for Raspberry Pi Foundation hardware (Raspberry Pi).
"NanoPi" image is for Friendlyarm's "Nano Pi Neo".
"NanoPi_Air" image is for Friendlyarm's "Nano Pi Neo Air".
"OrangePiZero" image is for Xunlong Software's "OrangePi Zero".
My raspberry Pi hardware is Pi 3B version. So I download "Pi-Star_RPi_V4.1.0_26-Mar-2020.zip".
4. Create a WIFI "wpa_supplicant.conf" config file to use with Pi-Star.
All the operation finished, you can begin to QSO with hams all over the world on the air. If you have any other questions, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
