Amateur Digital - D-Star, Fusion, DMR and More

Presented by George Schindler, WBØIIS & Roger Volk, KØGOB










The last time George Schindler, WBØIIS and Roger Volk, KØGOB of the Missouri Digital Group made a presentation to OVARC, they were talking about D-Star and the system they installed in St. Louis.  The Missouri Digital Group is expanding to Fusion and DMR.  George will talk about the various digital modes, D-Star, Fusion, DMR and others available to amateurs.  He will explain how they work, their differences and similarities.  Included is a look at “dongles” and “hot spots” and how they have evolved and allow you to “play” with the digital modes even if there is not a system near you.
