D-Spot Testimonials

From Nick, KE6CZD

“Also, the 12v R/C batteries have been performing great….   I took my D-Spot with me today to a Ice Hockey game.  Deal is, NO RECEPTION ever inside this building.  Not even cell service.  So I parked my car outside and had great access to my favorite reflectors…”

From Patrick, KA1RB

“D-SPOT arrived last night and is on the air this morning! Great job putting it all together like that.

So far I have been using it with a direct link to my TP-link AC1750 with good success – good audio report and great range. Later today I’ll test the iPhone link to see how that works mobile.

Thanks again for a great product.”
