Simplex D-STAR

Things have been busy here so not much chance to update the blog, but just a few moments now, so….It’s good to hear that some people are having a go at using D-STAR for simplex contacts rather than just repeater/network based work. Des, G0RBD in Chippenham has just got started on the mode and has been making some interesting simplex QSOs.What I hadn’t realised was that 144.6125 appears to be being used for simplex contacts on 144MHz. So if you’re out and about mobile or portable with D-STAR kit, it could well be worth a call on there!
