As many of you know, I run the GB7KH multimode digital voice repeater on the north east side of London. The project is based around the MMDVM project. When installing the RF hardware, I ensured that the repeater had a calibrated RSSI (received signal strength indicator) output, which I did using a communications test-set. When […]
Today I met with Ian of Icom UK over lunch who presented me my D-Star QSO Party prize! It was good to have an in depth chat with Ian, and hopefully many more to come. Makes a change from me bending Don’s ear! See the official Icom UK tweet here. Thank you!
The D-STAR repeater project GB7KH is well under-way with the repeater on soak test at my home. See the repeater project website for more information.
Over the past week or so, I have been playing around with DStarRepeater and ircDDBGateway to learn a bit about DSTAR repeaters, given the progress GB7KH‘s NoV is making. I have made a simplex hotspot with my FT817 and a soundcard interface, although I can see that there is certainly room for improvement. I have […]
