This will work with hotspots, such as the SharkRF OpenSpot. But this is not a Tier-2 compatible radio; if you use it on a repeater it will work but you will busy BOTH timeslots of the repeater at the same time! The CPS software has a field to select which timeslot you want to use, but it will still use both TS no matter which one you pick.

So it is definitely recommended to use it strictly with 1-timeslot devices!

Yes, I have such a radio, and in addition to the above comments (that I fully second!) the firmware is totally crappy, bugs over bugs, often even crashing the radio and requiring a reboot.

The whole thing is a nice case study, but otherwise unusable :)
