D-STAR and the VK5RWN D-STAR repeater will be officially launched for Adelaide at the AHARS Buy and Sell Nov 9th.
The D-STAR launch will consist of an introduction by AREG President Ben VK5ABE and WIA Director Robert VK3KRB. There will be a presentation on D-STAR by Peter VK3TQ of Icom and Richard VK3JFK the National D-STAR Coordinator and a live demonstration of D-STAR on VK5RWN as well as a question and answer session.
A number of configuration files will be available for the IC-92AD, IC-2820H & ID-800H based on the following D-STAR Gateways: VK5RWN B and VK5RWN C. With a little bit of fiddling we may also be able to whip up some files on the day for the IC-91AD.
As part of the D-STAR Launch authorised Icom dealers at the Buy and Sell will be offering a once off special D-STAT Launch price for all D-STAR radios on the day.
The Buy & Sell will be at Goodwood Community Centre. Rosa Street Goodwood.
Regards, Richard Hoskin – VK3JFK
