I'm a C4FM newbie.  Thanks to advice from W3WGS, I managed to make a mobile connection to a C4FM Reflector room using my DV4mini/laptop and FT-2D HT in the car with my iPhone personal hotspot providing the Internet connection. Worked great.  Question: Is this the only way to make a mobile connection to a C4FM Reflector other than using a Wires-X mobile radio to connect through a local Wires-X repeater ?  Thanks.

short answer:  no

The DV4Mini uses it's own network.  There are over 1000 active nodes on WiresX now, which uses a different network than the DV4Mini.  Yes, there are cross links, the MNWis WiresX room is crosslinked on FCS002 Module 23.

You could also use a mobile hot spot with a static IP to setup your own WiresX node.  You'd need an HRI-200, a node radio (recommended FTM-100), a small laptop computer, and a Fusion hand held.  You open up 5 ports through the hot spot and you're on the air.
