Nobody waits that long between transmissions. You are lucky to get
5 seconds. What I want to do is to avoid the internet latency and
create a RF to RF bridge. I know that these times were confirmed
by others using hotspots. I also know that PiStar and the Openspot
can crossmode. How can I do this without suffering the internet
delays? The YSF repeater is least than a quarter mile away, and I
want to have a local DMR connection in my hamshack. How do I do

If I am reading this right, I think what Neil
is describing is a way for a DMR radio to talk with a Fusion
radio, without needing to go to a reflector or other
network. It's an interesting thought experiment, and here's
what I think.
Pi-Star to Pi-Star, probably not. Pi-Star is designed from
the ground up to talk to existing networks, and from what
I've seen there's no 'easy' way of making two Pi-Star
hotspots talk to each other in that fashion. Even going from
mode to mode on Pi-Star (say, DMR radio to a YSF reflector)
uses the MMDVM_CM tools, if I recall correctly.
Openspot has a hotspot-to-hotspot mode, but I believe it's
limited to only passing same-mode traffic, like DMR to DMR.
Having not done this myself, this is limited to speculation.
If you've got two Pi-Star hotspots already, you could have
both of them connect to a central 'server' locally, running
something like HBlink3. Connect one as a DMR hotspot to the
HBlink master and the other hotspot as a DMR2YSF hotspot to
the HBlink master. Kind of like this:
Pi-Star (DMR) <-> HBlink3 Master (Local) <->
This kind of setup I would consider an 'advanced'
configuration, but I think it could work.
Going back on what Steve N4IRS said, where are you
experiencing up to an 8 second delay on the Internet? Unless
you're using dial-up or you're on the furthest reaches of a
DSL line, I can't say I've seen latency that high in a long
