What is D-STAR enabled?
Getting set up with D-STAR D-STAR Gateways enable users to connect from a local D-STAR repeater, equipped with a D-STAR Gateway, to any other Gateway equipped D-STAR repeater. Once an Amateur is registered with a repeater gateway, it can connect to D-STAR users beyond the local repeaters.
How can I listen to D-STAR?
We can access D-STAR through the following methods:
- Commercially available radios from Icom.
- Talk to the D-STAR network using a PC and the DVDongle.
- Modify many radios to talk D-STAR using the Icom D-STAR modules.
- Listen and decode D-STAR signals using a basic receiver.
- Interface with the gateway software.

What is DStarMonitor?
Overview. DStarMonitor was developed in 2006 to provide database reporting on the Icom D-STAR repeaters. To do so, it utilizes PCAP to passively monitor the communications between the Icom repeater controller and the Icom gateway server. DStarMonitor also supports other databases if the sysop desires.
How do I use a D-STAR radio?
Quick Start Guide Step 1 – Register! While you can use a D-Star radio as a simplex device and also to use the local repeater for local, non-gateway access (much the same as a non-D-Star repeater) you cannot use the more advanced features of the D-Star network without being registered.
What is D-STAR repeater (DR) mode?
Okay, time to roll up my sleeves. If you’re using a hotspot for D-STAR, it’s really important that you set up your radio properly. For most simplex hotspot devices, DV mode won’t work; instead, you must set up RPT1, RPT2, and a zero offset (either +/−0.000). This is known as D-STAR Repeater (DR) mode or Duplex mode.

What is Dr mode on D STAR radio?
When you do, you get access to the DR memories but loose access to the main radio memories. DR Mode typically also selects the DV53modulation mode and some other D-Star related settings for you. The actual frequencies used by the radio are set in conjunction with the repeater entries.
