A little DSTAR activity

I’d not been on DSTAR for a while. Mostly because the Raspberry Pi that
I generally use for the gateway has been busy on ADS-B duty. Last weekend, I remembered
I could easily fire up Win-DV on the PC and use the DVAP with that.

A couple of nice QSOs this morning with that setup; John LA2QAA and Des G0RBD. Time to reinstate the Sunday morning DSTAR sessions as I do the chores around the house and garden.

    Hi Tim , I love DSTAR . I use a Raspberry Pi runningtheG4KLX software. The transceiver is a Motorola M-120 with a DVRPTR V_1 board. The antenna is a home made 3/4 inch copper J-pole for 2m and 440 at 70 feet. I am on REF006A . Look forward to hearing you soon . Chuck
