There are times when you can’t always have your HT and/or hotspot with you but you want to stay in contact with a certain talk group or club.
For Android users, it’s pretty easy to setup a hotspot in the cloud or a Rasperry Pi at home and use DVSwitch Mobile to access any of the digital modes. Note: I only set mine up for DMR.
Update 01/03/2019: EA5GVK has a Raspberry Pi image that has all modes working and a script that sets everything up for details see this post: https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/main/message/4959
You can also keep up with his latest image versions here: http://ea5gvk-dmr.zigor.es he was at version 2.0 at the time of this article but he’s now on version 8 at the time of this update.
These are the manual instructions but you must follow them to the letter or you may not get audio in one or both directions:
DMR & YSF: Install Guide
D-Star (somewhat outdated):
NXDN (somewhat outdated): https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/main/files/NXDNgateway%20Setup.pdf
P25 (somewhat outdated):
While these instruction are for a Raspberry Pi the only modification I had to make for Ubuntu was change the lines that called for .armhf to .amd64. Also, be careful with copy and pasting from the PDF sometimes it adds a space in some links and they didn’t actually work so watch the screen after you do something. Give me a shout if you need help.
