Custom Configuration
Please complete the information below and click on submit. This will be used to pre-configure your DMRspot to your specifications. Your information is submitted securely for your protection.

Important notes:

Fields marked with a red asterisk ( * ) are required. Other fields are optional.

We will use whatever information you provide to us, and if anything is missing we will assume that you intend to provide this yourself when you receive your DMRspot.

You can provide credentials for up to 5 WiFi access points. Only 1 is required. This allows you to seamlessly travel between multiple locations and have WiFi settings pre-programmed for each one.

If you operate more than 1 hotspot using the same DMR ID, please choose an DMR Extended ID number to add to your configuration. This can be any number from 1 to 99 of your choosing. The number is appended to your DMR ID to give your hotspot a unique ID. Each hotspot you have should have a different DMR Extended ID.

Hotspots based on Raspberry Pi Zero boards only support 2.4 GHz WiFi. Hotspots based on full sized Raspberry Pi 3B+ or newer may use either 2.4 or 5.8GHz WiFI access points.

We only perform pre-configuration for hotspots using DMR on the Brandmeister network. If you use another DMR network, D-Star, YSF, P25, NXDN, POCSAG, APRS, X-Modes, or have other special requirements, you will need to provide these mode specific settings once you receive your unit.

If you need help with your configuration, we can only provide assistance for hotspots using the Brandmeister DMR network. Also, we cannot provide assistance with radio codeplug programming.

iPhone Users:

If you are going to use your iPhones WiFi hotspot, you may need to change your SSID. iPhones use the phone name as its SSID. iPhone usually gives your phone a name like Bob's iPhone. Raspberry's cannot handle apostrophes well and it causes problems. If your phone name/SSID name includes an apostrophe, you will need to remove it or change your phone name completely.

Additional Assistance:

Configuration for all MMDVM based hotspots, regardless of brand, is a function of the Pi-Star software. It is published by an independent group and they have ample help resources for every supported mode. You can visit them at https://www.pistar.uk.
Please double-check your WiFi settings before submitting this form. SSID's and passwords are case sensitive and must be programmed exactly the same as the WiFi access point.
