This presentation is designed to take you through the basics of D-Star: What it is, and what it means to your station.
The video requires QuickTime 7 which can be obtained from http://www.apple.com/quicktime/. The movie may take a little while to load.
It is also available in H.264 at DStarPresentation.mov for those having trouble viewing the embedded video.
I developed this presentation to give to clubs and other organizations in our area (Southwestern Missouri). It is constantly evolving to keep up with the newest of the new in D-Star. This version is somewhat out of date because it does not contain some of the newest announcements of the last few weeks (GMSK de-modulation, Gateway version 2, etc.) An update with these details will follow in a few weeks once I have compiled them and updated my outline and slide deck.
Running time is approx. 42 minutes.
I would appreciate ALL comments, concerns, and corrections. All information contained is to the best of my knowledge and research - I do make mistakes.
73, and I hope you learn something!

AboutI'm just a geek from Northeast Kansas, formerly of Southwest Missouri. I have several (too many!) different hobbies and enjoy working with anything that's high-tech and cool. My site will talk about the things I'm interested in and what I'm up to. The links at the top all talk about my major hobbies and occupation.
No upcoming events.
