I'm still waiting to hear about the WinDV 1.5.8 but after 4 emails to 3 different email address now in the 3rd day, to be honest, I'm getting frustrated to think this is the only software the ThumbDV uses. 


I appologize if this is the wrong group also... I'm just trying to get my simple brain around this Dstar and right now I'm pedaling up hill in mud

Hi John,
    WinDV is just one option to use w/ the ThumbDV on Windows.  You can also use the G4KLX software which works great also.  It looks like the Dutch-Star web site is down.  I can' t reach it either.  Considering the Dayton Hamfest is kicking off, I'd try to have some patience as far as getting a reply from Fred.  He's usually very quick to reply.  I'd suspect he's probably traveling.  
    While you're waiting,  here's some pointers to getting your ThumbDV working w/ the G4KLX software.  First make sure you check out the NW Digital Resource Page:


You'll find a link to this handy PDF file that has several screenshots on how to setup ircDDBGateway & DummyRepeater.  


It actually covers setting up the DV3000 & the ThumbDV on Linux & Windows.  I highly recommend grabbing the latest versions of both ircDDBGateway & DummyRepeater from the Yahoo Groups.  Also grab the AMBEServerWin file from the first URL.

Follow the instructions for using the ThumbDV as a network device.  This will save you from having audio issues while TX/RX.   There's plenty of web sites out there showing how all this is setup.  It might seem a little overwhelming at first, but I promise, it's fun.  I've been on D-Star over a year now and enjoyed it a lot.  In that time, I've bought the ID-91AD, the 51A+, the 31A, an 880 for mobile use, a 70cm DVAP, and now the ThumbDV and the Star*DV.  That's one of the biggest strengths D-Star has over most other digital modes.  There's plenty of options out there. :-)  I hope the info gets you started.  73 de KB7SQI!

Yes, Ircddbgateway and Dummy Repeater. You can get both from their yahoo groups. Ircddbgateway group and PCRepeaterController group for Dummy repeater.

Just look in the files section of each group and get the latest versions form the BETA file area.

Hope you'll consider your many fans who won't make it to Dayton 2015 and show us what you're showing at Dayton. The blog would be ideal, with some photos.

WinDV website

jd_hudson@...
 

I've been waiting to hear back from Fred (2 days) to get WinDV 1.5.8 and I've read where others emailed Fred from their contact info and not the web page form. I cannot load their page now or all day  http://dutch-star.eu. Is anyone else having this problem or can they send me Fred's more direct email. 

 

Thanks

Until such time as someone writes a module for Jonathan's software that allows System Fusion over D-STAR, yes.

Not recommended. besides if you wanted a DVAP amp you probably are looking for more like a watt output (also not recommended)

I plan to add a LC Bandpass module as a plug-in option.


Re: Amplifier Product

Good part, worth a look!


Re: Amplifier Product

That's right, it says 20MHz in some places and 50MHz in others.

Just being conservative.

What about the possibility of adding this to a Fusion radio instead of a repeater? Especially in an environment where no internet is available. I have recently seen a video on Youtube of this done but with DVRPTR.

The D-STAR mode runs on G4KLX dstarrepeater software, which in turn can talk to ircDDBGateway and out to the rest of the ircDDB connected net, including reflectors, STARnet Digital Groups, and callsign routing.

Would you be able to LINK to other Dstar repeaters with this solution
