I have been using D-Star since 2019(ish) and have fallen down the rabbit hole of possibilities of what I can do with it. My primary D-Star rig is a Kenwood D-74 HT, but I also have an ICOM 4100 mobile installed in one of my vehicles. Over the 2024 winter, I plan on documenting the following items as it relates to D-Star:

  • Creating a D-Star hotspot using a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W, MMDVM board, and the QnetGateway software.
  • Canada’s Multi-Mode Digital Voice Net

I have also started to dabble in the world of Yaesu C4FM, and at some point I may add another section on this site related to it.
