The NEW CCS DTMF D*Star system my DTMF is 4611
I am looking into getting the DV-ADAPTER from (http://dstarradioclub-international.com/dv-adapter—purchase.html) so I can go D*Star HF on my ICOM 756 ProII (I just have to save my pennies and sell some equipment)
I registered my website: http://www.w5tmp.com so please take a look at my Radio Blog.
Thanks so much for helping me. you were kind enough to help me. I had the question about the bandwidth use of a dvap. My dsl slows to a crawl in the evenings and i am concerned about how well i can communicate through a dvap.
Thanks so much,
the quick answer is that they run on as little as 3G service on a cell phone. So, I would imagine that even if your DSL got REALLY REALLY slow. It would still work just fine. I do have a complete turnkey system available to ship just like the one I built Larry KI4TGI, if you are interested.
