D-Star Real-World Examination Pages

Welcome to our ICOM D-STAR ID-1 information pages. Without any sponsorship from ICOM Corporation, using 2 units they have graciously provided, we have evaluated their 1.2 GHz Amateur Radio solution for voice and data communications.

Amateur Radio stations directly involved with this evaluation are (in no particular order): KB9MWR, KB9AMM, N9PAV, and KC0ARF.

These pages are designed to highlight our successful implementation of a data network using the D-STAR solution here in Green Bay, Wisconsin. While we find voice and digitial voice a useful propogation mode, we are most impressed with the data component network that we were able to construct and use.
