I have seen this information propagating various forums and groups for the last few weeks and each time i have asked for a price but none has been forthcoming so far.

Price?

Sorry my bad i looked at the DV RPI page and saw the same as i had seen elsewhere with the more information coming soon and didn't look any further. :blush:

Is the pi version available yet?

Edit: Just spoken to Karl on the phone and he was most helpful. :)

I have joined the forum so i can have a read up on the products.

You can use the G4KLX software for windows & a Pi image! as Johnathon has added the DV-MEGA drivers
if you join the forum there are videos of the windows software running and a video of a customer using the PI

Its not using a pi image Paddy it can be plugged into the pi like a dvap and it is included in the modem selection options in the later ircddbgateway builds.

Alternatively it can be plugged into a pc and the same software used with windows.

I am more interested in the version that plugs right onto the pi itself which would then be a one box solution for a hotspot.

Anyone wanting a dvap now would be better off buying one of these although slightly more in depth to setup the versatility is way beyond a dvap driven by its
own software. Not to mention it being dual band and less than half the price of a dvap. :)

Would it not have been better to get a case that contained them both together?

I am still thinking about having a play with the arduino version while waiting for the pi version to become available.

Hi! it's the cost of having a custom case made, & every time you want to change the shield over you would have to open it all up again, The GMSK node shield would also have to have another case as the radio cable connector is in a diff position, there is also the DV-MEGA Dongle shield again diff.. so we thought this would be better! OH for all you out there that don't know what a DV-MEGA Dongle is it's the same as the Blue dvdongle :) but cheaper BUT that is coming later!!!

I don't think people would want to change the shield they will be buying it for what it is as a unit. If they wanted other options then it would be easier
to just buy another arduino to mate it with.

I understand you are trying to make it as simple and as cheap as possible plus it should not be beyond an amateur to source and mount it in a box of their choosing. :)
