In order to access the Brandmeister channels on your DMR radio you need either a local Brandmeister repeater or a Hot Spot with internet/Wi-Fi access.
The Brandmeister hot spots are now ready for purchase for $115 with $45 of the price going to R2D3 ARES.
The project has been initially funded, soldered and assembled by Dan WØDFU and Brian KEØLTD
The case for the hotspot will come with your call sign on it. The device can be pre-configured or you can do it yourself, instructions included. The Brandmeister Hot Spot can be configured for multiple Wi-Fi networks, i.e. home, work, cell hotspot and more.
The hot spot also offers Multiple DMR configurations, Regular DMR, P25 and Yaesu Fusion
You will be able to talk worldwide with your HT. R2D3 now has its own talk group; we now have these Hot Spots at Fairplay and Bailey EOC’s.
You can order your hotspot below via Paypal.
