D-Star At The Blackpool Rally! - 19/03/2008
The recent Blackpool radio rally was a hive of D-Star promotional activity with two stands
featuring real time D-Star demonstrations of simultaneous digital speech and data transfer.
Paul, G1DVA, Warrington Amateur Radio Club (WARC) displayed his custom D-Star data
demonstration application. Paul's D-Star demo was used to send text messages, via D-Star
transceivers, from the main hall D-Star stand to the WARC stand, by the entrance to the
rally. On the WARC stand a dynamic web page was used to display the text message content
that had been created by attendees to the main hall D-Star stand.
GM0OPS, GM1FML and G6OCD provided D-Star equipment demonstrations and advice for rally
attendees in the main hall. John, GM0OPS, was particularly pleased with the keen interest
shown in D-Star at the rally and welcomes enquiries from groups planning their own D-Star
stands at future amateur radio events:
