THANK YOU for the documentation on setting up a Pi-Star hotspot! I struggled for several days to get my MMDVM Raspberry Pi Zero up and running without success until I saw your pdf doc with step by step instructions. In a couple hours I was on the air! – Tad, K3TD, North Carolina, Feb 2022

Thank you for taking the time to create your website. It has been extremely useful in helping me learn about D-STAR, hotspot utilization and the construction of a Lonestar-based RPi hotspot. I sincerely appreciate your time.
– Mark, KB0FSU, Tennessee, Jan 2022

Thank you for providing the Pi-Star resource on your site. It was invaluable in giving me direction on curing an ailing Pi-Star install that refused to play nice despite fiddling with about everything I could think of on Brandmeister, the config page, and doing a number of updates via the GUI.… Your guide was abundantly clear and soon an update from SSH and flashing the firmware on the hat did wonders.
– Anthony, K04GPM, North Carolina, Jan 2022

Thank you for creating your website with instructions on how to setup a Pi-Star using a mmdvm hat.

Then I found your website. The detail in which you walk through the configuration, and all of the options (including up to date options), was exactly what I needed. I went through your guide, and had my hotspot online and operating as intended. I have been on DMR all day today, which has brought me joy. So thank you for taking the time to create your website, and these instructions. Please keep up the good work!

Been thinking of taking the plunge for a while now—and without question, you seem to have pulled off the impossible—a complete one-stop-location online, which totally rounds up a summary of all hats, hardware and firmware in one spot. Top marks—and nothing but the highest order of respect—concerning your obvious unwavering commitment when laying out the breadth of your endeavours, with regards to this specific element of Amateur Radio.

I came across your website today and was very pleased to see so much accurate info about Pi-Star, the Zumpsot and others. You've done a beautiful job with your web site.

I came across your website while doing some research into what new hams are saying about D-STAR. I can honestly say, I enjoyed your writings on the subject and how you made sense of the chaos of the "Alphabet Soupese" many just blurt out while talking about D-STAR. I can say I am a fan!

I just wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for your website and all the work you have put into it. I started out trying to learn D-Star, and in past few months have gotten into DMR. With the help of a couple of local Ham's I got a code plug for my GD-77 and started making QSO's. After spending time on you excellent website I know just enough to become dangerous. With in the last two weeks I purchased a ZUMspot Pi and have a hotspot. It took me till last night with your website's help to get it up and running on DMR. Needless to say I was pumped. Now with your website's help I am now going to tackle D-Star. Again I want to Thank You for your Time, Effort, and sharing your knowledge.

I just read your article on 'Diving into D-Star' and it was a really good reading. It is the first time since I am "diving" into d-star that I managed to put some order in my thoughts regarding how everything connects and works together. It also helped me to sort out some issues I have been encountering in my own setups since quite a while. Just wanted to say thank you….
