If your adventurous, There are other ways of connecting to a D-Star repeater or reflector system.
DVAP (digital voice access point) –
Simply connect this to a computer/laptop that has internet. Install and configure the DVAPTOOL program. There is a little more to this, but you’ll get the gist. Now you have the ability to connect to D-star repeaters and reflectors form anywhere you have internet! Even when you are out of town away from any D-star repeater rolling down the highway, just use the internet from your mobile phone!
Instead of using a PC, try a raspberry PI !
Super small computer. You can plug a DVAP into it and have a D-Star hotspt anywhere you have internet.
Raspberry pi using a DVmega board.
It does the same as the DVAP, A little cheaper and more portable. It just wont plug into a PC. Pi only. If you happen to already have a pi you can buy the DVmega board separate.
