After reviewing this guide, one D-STAR system administrator stated: "Anyone purchasing a D-STAR radio should have a copy of this book."
 Another D-STAR system system administrator is using the book as the basis for a series of D-STAR classes being offered to their users.
Using easy to understand explanations and illustrations, this book describes how the D-STAR system operates and provides guidance for setting up transceivers to be able to access D-STAR's many features and modes of operation.  Special coverage is given to the extended capabilities available via Dplus equipped gateways.
Provides D-STAR  users with the background information and radio programming procedures needed to route calls via remote repeaters and reflectors.   The book also includes detailed how-to information for digital text messaging, file transfers and DV Dongle operation.
Detailed information for installing, configuring and operating the freeware d*Chat and DRATS digital messaging and file transfer programs.  Especially useful when Internet access is not available or for supporting emergency communications.
A separate chapter is devoted to setting up and using the DV Dongle to make calls through D-STAR repeaters and reflectors using a computer.  Ideal for those without a local D-STAR repeater or for when you are traveling.
This is the first comprehensive reference to the world of D-STAR operation ever published.  An ideal resource for discovering the full range of operating modes and opportunities available to D-STAR users.   Experience the excitement of D-STAR!
