Below are some of the applications that D-Star Digital technology can interact with. Stay tuned, because new applications are coming out all the time!
Add On by Michael Dirska, DL1BFF Platform: Linux+Java (for
gateways registered with US Root trust server)
The ircDDB add-on software connects gateways to the ircDDB network.
The ircDDB network exchanges call sign routing information using dedicated
IRC servers (Internet Relay Chat). It speeds up roaming between repeaters
and modules considerably. It also enables call sign routing with homebrew
repeaters. The software is also available for non-Icom gateway solutions.
This software will not interfere with normal gateway operations or
registration with USRoot Server.
d*Chat is a Windows based keyboard to keyboard communication application that uses the D-STAR "DV" data capability. d*Chat is used to enable text-based communication between multiple stations on a simplex frequency or through a repeater.
Check out this free and very useful IM chat tool for the Icom D-STAR
system. Basic, non-internet dependent software helps in emergency
communications. See it here in action
D-RATS by Dan Smith, KI4IFW Platform: Python (All Python Enabled Systems)
D-RATS is a small application designed to provide data communication capabilities with D-STAR radios. It supports text chatting, file transfers, position reporting and mapping, and much more!
A compact, portable TNC designed to gateway position packets between a D_Star digital network and a conventional analog APRS network via a D-Star radio and a conventional radio. (Click images to see hardware)
DStarQuery by Pete Loveall, AE5PL Platform: Java (All Java enabled systems)
(Note: Link is to download only. Documentation for this application is provided on a PDF file in the download) DStarQuery works in tandem with javAPRSSrvr or D-PRS Interface to monitor the D-STAR serial data port (or USB port for the ID-1) for commands/queries from remote stations. Upon receiving a recognized command/query, DStarQuery will run the associated application and return whatever is the "printed" by the application.
The N5EBW LED Repeater Modification is a drop in replacement to the RP2000V, RP4000V, RP2D, or RP2V to give you transmit and receive lights on the front of these modules. This is a great tool to aid in troubleshooting and diagnosing problems with your repeater system!
