D-Star Solutions

Below are some of the applications that D-Star Digital technology can interact with. Stay tuned, because new applications are coming out all the time!

Application Description
ircDDB Add On
by Michael Dirska, DL1BFF
Platform: Linux+Java (for gateways registered with US Root trust server)
The ircDDB add-on software connects gateways to the ircDDB network. The ircDDB network exchanges call sign routing information using dedicated IRC servers (Internet Relay Chat). It speeds up roaming between repeaters and modules considerably. It also enables call sign routing with homebrew repeaters. The software is also available for non-Icom gateway solutions. This software will not interfere with normal gateway operations or registration with USRoot Server.

d*Chat is a Windows based keyboard to keyboard communication application that uses the D-STAR "DV" data capability. d*Chat is used to enable text-based communication between multiple stations on a simplex frequency or through a repeater.
