Video Transcription:
Meet Tom. Tom is new to the amateur radio hobby, and he enjoys talking with others all around the world. Tom is looking to take on the world of DMR, but doesn't know how or where to get started.

The hard truth is, the landscape of amateur radio is far more complex than it ever used to be. Tom knows if he truly wants to experience and enjoy radio in the modern world, he's going to need something more capable to help him enjoy radio again. He needs something that will allow him to make connections all around the world at the click of a button. Tom needs to be able to enjoy DMR without having to decipher through all the programming of DMR. This is where the SkyBridge Plus Hotspot can really help.

This hotspot can work as your personal repeater from anywhere you are as long as you have an internet connection. It helps to make QSO's with hams around the world and continually listen to others. The SkyBridge Plus comes enclosed in a new black protective acrylic case, so even if you're a little rough on it, it will still run flawlessly.

The SkyBridge Plus insures Tom will always know who he's talking to with its display so Tom can send them his very own QSL card. The 2.4 inch LCD screen that displays the contact's name, call sign and mode ID. There are transmit and receive frequencies, their contacts' country and country flag, one of my personal favorite features. The digital mode that you are on, the talk group or node you are on, the RSSI, the BER and your current IP address. Compare this to the original SkyBridge with a 1.3 inch OLED screen that only displayed your call sign and time slot, big difference.

With the SkyBridge Plus, you can easily only scan and identify your Internet's IP address without having to use Angry IP, or a similar tool. This digital hotspot also has a direct ethernet port, so you no longer need an adapter, or a dongle. We are really excited about the Pi-3 board that is used in the SkyBridge Plus. With the Pi-3, your boot up time is twice as fast compared to the original SkyBridge with a Pi-Zero board.

You will still enjoy dual band with the SkyBridge Plus Hotspot. That means you can use this hotspot in both VHF and UHF spectrums. The SkyBridge Plus Hotspot is compatible with DMR, D-STAR, System Fusion NXDN, and P-25 radio. So, even if you don't have a DMR radio, the SkyBridge Plus is still a great option for you.

Tom can be happy knowing with the SkyBridge Plus, he'll always be in range of a fellow ham.

Take your first step into DMR today with the purchase of a SkyBridge Plus Hotspot.

Thanks again for watching. I'm Cody, W3AMG with BridgeCom Systems. 73.
