Re: Thumb DV Software
You do not need the SDR dongle to be a D-Star repeater as you can listen over the internet to any broadcast.
To use the SDR dongle as a D-star receiver use SDR# and get from http://www.wb9coy.com
the Download DSD1.7 from projects. This add on to SDR# will decode any D-Star, DMR or P25 signal that you hear automatically.
