Although this is something that should have been done ten years ago, and is cool amateur radio engineering, the hundreds, and hundreds of thousands of dollars that has been spent on the AMBE CODEC EMBEDED equipment, is a massive barrier to this ever changing the Dstar system. And why yaesu, has decided to come out with yet another digital mode, is baffling.
( just a note, I own 6 yeasu radios, so I am a yaesu fan)
But, thats what amateur radio is all about. But it would be nice if we could choose a common codec.
I'm financially entrenched in Icom D-star now, so I'm locked in.
