I went to Dayton and the one thing on my shopping list was an ID-31A (I have 3 other D-STAR radios). I won an ID-31A as a door prize at the D-STAR Pizza dinner Thursday night!toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Great little handheld. I like that it keeps a database of D-STAR repeater locations (I need to refresh from http://www.dstarinfo.com/downloads-for-icom-software.aspx) and using the built-in GPS, I can select repeaters "near me" ... cool. It was fun as I passed through airports along the route.
I have already plugged a USB GPS into the UDR56K (CPU board) and loaded gpsd (a daemon many programs use for GPS data) - it loaded and worked right away. Once the UDR56K is fully up, this will be the basis for sending GPS positions via D-STAR, APRS, AX.25, etc. :) The mass storage is a microSD, so keeping a database of infrastructure (frequency, location, etc.) is a natural.
