7 March 2022 – The bluffer’s guide to digital voice by Tim Kirby, GW4VXE

| March 7, 2022

Tim’s presentation

Tim provides a quick overview of the most common digital modes (D-STAR, DMR and Fusion) as well as some of the less common modes, and explains how you might use them.

Which mode is the best? Tim will look at code-plugs and hotspots and try and demystify some of the jargon for you.

Technology permitting, he’ll try and do a demo with the chance for a little audience participation. Rather than being a heavy session, the emphasis will be on light but informative content.
