If you have any questions, we'll work with you to be sure you'll be successful in setting up your Hotspot.  Note:  the analog transceiver in a Hotspot ideally will support 9600 baud packet data.  Often Hams have a spare analog radio available, or they pick one up at a hamfest or club auction.  Again, if you have any questions, email them to the address below.

We also encourage you to join gmsk_dv_node on Yahoo Groups -- the most popular email list about GMSK node adapters.
