Ham Member Lookups: 108420


I was first licensed in December 1997.

My interests include HF, CW, RTTY, PSK31, JT65 and UHF / VHF digital and analog.  I have been involved with QRP radio opertions and kit building.



I started my VHF / UHF D-STAR experience with a DV-Dongle and still enjoy it, particularly as a receiver.  I now own an ID-51A and a 2 meter DVAP.  I started using an old Thinkpad T-22 ( 900MHz chip and 512 meg ram with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ) and the G4KLX DVAPNODE and IRCDDBGATEWAY software as it gives me access to the DCS and XRF reflectors.  I migrated to a RaspberryPi using the W6KD DStar Commander software.  My CCS7 ID # is 3117477. 


I also have a Raspberry Pi B that I use W6KD's DStar Commander image, the best on out there.  If you use a DVAP or DVMEGA with your Raspberry Pi, check his image at http://w6kd.boards.net/ for your particulate piece of software.  Use the "interactive mode" to install the image on the  SD card.


Check out several good D-STAR webpages that are useful to D-STAR users at:


Check out the " Conferences " tab of http://dstarinfo.com to find a number of good videos from the Dayton Hamvention weekends and other hamfests.  Some videos may not have a hyperlink to view them, so go to Youtube.com and search for the 2013 or 2016  Dstar Infocon presentations.  There are 3 segments each year and they run around 50 minutes long.  The presentation is based on current Icom Dstar radios, ie. 2015 more relevant to the 5100 / 51's; and the earlier ones more relevant to the 2820 and 91/92 series. 





The Thursday evening ( 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern ) D-Star Round Table on XRF002A is an informational and technical net.  It is not a check-in type net, so you can sit back and listen, or talk about a D-STAR topic.  Here is the link for the podcasts of the Thursday evening starting at  8pm Pacific.  Beginning on March 2, 2017, this Roundtable begins one hour earlier on Thursday night at 7pm Pacific.  D-Star Round Table:



The following link is for the companion D-STAR Round Table Forum.  The shoutbox at the bottom is used as an alternate means of communicating information to Net Control.  Previous weeks' shoutcasts are archived under the "General Round Table Discussion" in a tab called "Shoutbox History".  You may find some useful internet links here.  No signup is needed to use the Shoutbox.  The standard convention is to use your callsign in the "Shout as:" text box for identification purposes.  





Please QSL to above address with a SASE, and I am good in the ARRL buro and Logbook of the World!   No eQSLs please.
