Here is some info on a DV-Dongle device to use with your computer for D-Star over the internet via your PC............................................
Look at this Video Clip on YouTube about the DV Dongle.............
Digital Smart Technologies for Amateur Radio - D-Star related site with good info and Video Clips...................
D-STAR Position Reporting System (D-PRS) utilizes the low-speed data stream of the D-STAR digital voice mode to transmit
GPS NMEA sentence formatters. The standard was published in 2001, the result of three years of research funded by the Japanese
government and administered by the JARL to investigate digital technologies for amateur radio.
D-PRS Interface has a TCP/IP port (127.0.0.1:14551) for APRS client(s) to connect to in exactly the same manner as the client
would connect to an APRS-IS server. This port supports multiple clients. VHF and UHF D-STAR radios have a tracker capability
(transmitting GPS provided position reports). D-PRS Interface converts these position reports from remote D-STAR radios to
an APRS format on the APRS port so the client can see other D-STAR radios in addition to other APRS stations using D-PRS Interface
or APRS packets gated to the D-STAR low-speed channel by javAPRSSrvr.
D-PRS Interface also has a TCP/IP port (127.0.0.1:14550) that provides a direct path to and from the serial port. This
can be used by a telnet client or any other TCP/IP client to send and receive data to and from the D-STAR serial port.
