If you can’t change the band edges on your Anytone radio change the band setting in the codeplug so it matches.
Press and hold down PTT and 1 while turning on your radio to change the bands on your Anytone handheld (tested on my D878UV+). To change them, turn the channel knob and power the radio off when it is showing you the setting that you want.
I did not like the small screen and the small housing of my last Hotspot so I decided to make a bigger housing where I needed a bigger screen. Look what I got myself up and running, with some major options to control the hotspot just right off the screen itself. Make sure to install the NextionDrivers when you use this layout - it offers way more possibilities.

This is a quick workaround to retrieve a DMRID on console or terminal. This comes in handy when you don’t have a browser window open or not even a graphical setup running. The script uses w3m to retrieve website content from ham-digital.org. It’s also usable when piping its output to a file.
You want to install w3m. It is a text browser. Don’t forget rpi-rw before installing anything if you’re on Pi-Star.
This is a MMDVM_HS_Dual_Hat hotspot in duplex mode with DMRGateway and an actual Pi-Star image. In this setup I use DMR+_IPSC2-OE-DMO and BM_Germany_2622 as master servers. I also use DAPNET and PiStar Remote.
I’ve been playing with Pi-Star now for a while and I finally got my IPSC2-Brandmeister dual-setup working.
So this my short story to the amateur radio bands. Please take notice that this article was re-published several times now on different websites (I changed the backend quite a bit) and some dates may not fit up to each other logically because I updated some parts but some I don’t.
I’m not the casual ham radio operator that always wanted to operate his own ham radio station. I tried CB once but had to travel quite a bit to reach other stations (trucks on the highway for example). I’ve played with SDR before and tried a few things with GNUradio and gqrx but I never got deeper into this kind of things.
