Is there a
way to prevent that from starting back up after the reboot?
As noted in an earlier post it comes with the Hot spot
enabled, so once you can disable it by
entering the KillHotspot command. Note I am not sure that is
the correct syntax of the command. Once
the hotspot is killed you can attach a direct lan cable and
the internet will work. I have done it.
And others have noted a work around for them, it didn't work
for me, maybe I misunderstood
one of the commands, I am not sure. So I am waiting to see if
Dave W3DJS will put out another
ham loaded release with out the hot spot included. I do know
of some that will use the software
with the hot spot.
I hope this helps.

So I finally managed to get the system to
load the image correctly.
Everything expanded out just as it
should. That looks good.
However, there is no DNS working
successfully on a hard wired configuration, and no wifi
option even available as well.
Not sure why it’s not just using the
default linux features where all this just works as it
should. Is this disabled on purpose?
Anyone come up with a solution for this?
Of course you can edit the resolv.conf
file to force it to work, until the next reboot, but that’s
a temporary bandaid, not a solution at best.
I have tried it at least 4 times now
myself on a RPI4 with nothing but a blank screen afterwards
So I suspect it could be something with
my version of the 4gig rpi4.
I tried it on a 3b a couple times, at it
will at least try to expand out there, but then starts
bombing out with tons of errors. Then lots of
So no joy for me either. ☹

Ham Radio Image v2.0 Released - INOP
I have tried twice now to download the W3DJS
Raspberry Pi Ham Radio Image v2.0 Released program
and make it work. I downloaded the v2.0.tar.bz2 version and
then unzipped the file to make it a 17Gig size file. I
copied that to a 32 Gig MicroSD and loaded it in a Raspberry
Pi 4b and nothing happens.
My understand is this 17 Gig image file that is created is
supposed to set itself up when you power on the Raspberry
Pi4b and run. Am I wrong in that assumption? I've
downloaded this file twice now on a limited data throughput
device and can't keep doing this as I'll run out of data for
What am I doing wrong and how can I make this image work?
