Users and Improvements

Hi all,

well we are seeing more use on GB7FK which is great news. I would like to see more users from GB7IC coming through the gateway to GB3FK, and the other way around too. this will create more activity, and at the end of the day, thats what the system is there for.

No more news on the freqeuency change, but i dont think it will be long now.

soon as the frequency change happens, we shall fit the new pre-amp on the repeater, and also look at possibly changing the antenna as well to see if that will help improve things.

We are also looking into the future and doing more tests with high speed data on 1.2gig.

more soon!

Many users worldwide on DSTAR

Looking at the Dstar Users website I notice that there are 412 unique callsigns in a 24 hour period, thats alot of users!

I have noticed in the last few weeks a big increase in repeaters across the world. Its great to see DSTAR move forward and getting very popular.
