episode is all D-STAR. Fair
warning! Robin Cutshaw
AA4RC sat down with HAMRADIONOW.tv's KN4AQ
for a long conversation about how he discovered D-STAR, found that
while it was an advance in Ham Radio technology, there were a few
things missing. And he set out to include them. It began with a few
software gimmicks, then morphed into DPLUS software that
allowed linked repeaters and reflectors, and soon became a growing line
of hardware (DVDongle, DVAP, UHF-DVAP).
Other D-STAR video
(and more) from ARVN:
Episode 12-B D-STAR Training Class at
the 2012 Dayton Hamvention®
- 2011 D-STAR Forum
at the Dayton Hamvention (on-line video).
D-STAR Forum at the Dayton Hamvention (DVD)
D-STAR Meetings at... you guessed it, the
Hamvention. This is an early peek at how D-STAR developed in America.
It's going to be a classic bit of history. Only on DVD for now.
- Digital Voice for Amateur Radio.
Our first big documentary, it covered digital voice on HF and VHF/UHF.
Most of the VHF/UHF part is D-STAR, with a few minutes on P-25. We
produced it in 2008. Seems like yesterday, but all the DPLUS linking
stuff is missing. It's still a good grounding in the D-STAR basics.
- Repeaters from A to D: A D-STAR
Primer. This isn't video, it's a free PDF
document written by ARVN's KN4AQ with an in-depth explanation of what
D-STAR is and how it works from the operator's perspective. The link
takes you to the ARVN "OtherStuff"
page. Scroll down for the article.
- Programming D-STAR Radios.
KN4AQ's most "how-to" video on programming those mysterious call sign
fields in ICOM's IC-92, 2820, and ID-800. This one's also a little old,
and misses D-PLUS linking.
