Digital Voice Radio

by Fred Cirera (W6BSD)

Join PARC as Fred Cirera, W6BSD introduces us to the new and exciting world of digital voice radio.

You don’t need a General or Extra class license to enjoy QSOs with people from around the world.  All amateur license classes can use Fusion, D-Star, DMR and many other digital voice modes to connect with people throughout the US and other countries through digital repeaters and amateur hotspots.

Fred will give us an overview of the popular flavors of digital voice, including Fusion, D-Star and DMR.
