New version of DSD+ released

With more digital radio appearing on the bands – I noticed the GB7BS (Bristol DMR) repeater coming on stream last weekend, you might want to think about ways of listening to the activity before you decide whether to take the plunge and invest in digital kit.

Over at the RTL-SDR blog, I noticed a post announcing a new version of the DSD+ software which will decode D-STAR, DMR etc. The package runs on Windows and you’ll need an RTL-SDR, Funcube Dongle or some other SDR receiver

    It works well, but remember that it doesn’t decode dstar other than the header. You can’t hear the audio.
