I'm running a Zumspot at home and am considering an Openspot 2 for mobile/car.  Does anyone know if I can seamlessly switch between hotspots without any reprogramming of the radio?  (assuming running same frequency). Thanks - K0FTN

You'll want to be really careful with this. If both hotspots are on the same frequency and within range of your radio, you can cause a "loop" that ties up the reflector/room/TG that you are on.  It will take a "kick" by a reflector/room/TG admin to reset everything.  Best practice is to never have two hotspots on the same frequency.  I have two hotspots in range of each other, but they are on different frequencies.  That way, no "loop" potential.  

Hope this helps.
