DRT 179 - 20180920 - WB5EKU
Thursday Night D-STAR Round Table. Join us on reflector XRF002A, XRF310A and XRF555A 7:00pm PDT weekly.
K6KD: Law Abiding Citizens Net Group: groups.io/g/LawAbidingCitizen
wb5eku: Possible topic for the DStar/Digital voice Round Table: www.xreflector.net/neu3/
wb5eku: Don't forget the DStar QSO party this weekend. For more info: www.icom.co.jp/world/dqp/ AND don't forget the place to make
wb5eku: QSOs is on the constellation of Xreflectors. XRF002 A, XRF310 A, XRF555 A and of course XRF313 A
g4klx: The xreflector team have announced the end of DCS, CCS, FCS, PCS and other stuff. XLX will fill the gap in the DCS world I think. I have removed their support from my code ready for release when they disappear. See xreflector.net/neu3/
g4klx: By that I mean FCS from my YSFGateway and CCS from ircDDB Gateway.
g4klx: BTW who's coming to Pacificon next month? I am :-)
K6KD: Will the demise of FCS mean more activity on YSF or will it be a fringe on the sidelines compared to Wires-X?
K6KD: Rise of 5G Lessens the Case for Net Neutrality - spectator.org/5g-net-neutrality/. Article's view that "Meaning, the market is solving what government could only worsen."
K6KD: New iPhones support Gigabyte LTE. Progression towards 5G. 5G vs Gigabit LTE: the differences explained: www.androidauthority.com/5g-vs-gigabit-lte-843341/
g4klx: I hope it does create more activity. It's supported by almost all System Fusion equipment bar Yaesu's own. There have been informal contacts about Wires-X, so who know.....
K6KD: One problem with YSF connecting to either DMR (no transcoding reqd) or D-STAR (transcoding reqd) is different audio levels. Not a problem with 1 on 1 QSOs but in a net is problematic. One solution would be decoding to PCM to change level then encoding
K6KD: .... Would require the same amount of hardware and processing as required for transcoding between D-STAR and DMR.
N9KO: I did not hear Bob. Listening on xrf002a on Buster and mac
k7ve: DRAWS - Part level kit -- also fully assembled. Or just the board.
N9KO: Did not hear Bill either
k7ve: DRAWS kit -- no soldering
k7ve: nwdigitalradio.com -- more info tomorrow.
K6KD: Heard everyone on 002, 310, and 313 - not monitoring 555
k7ve: There is a real time clock as well as the GPS for time and location. Yes that is a battery holder for the RTC. The photo is the prototype and the production boards will be a little different.
k7ve: I am not currently planning on being at Pacificon this year.
k7ve: Talk I gave at DCC last week, may be of interest to repeater and hotspot owners groups.io/g/net-44-vpn/files/VPN%20for%20Amateur%20Radio.pdf (You will have to join the group in groups.io)
k7ve: Going QRT
It is Free
