ID-31A/E UHF D-STAR GPS – Update Firmware E2 (CPU 1.03 DSP 1.04) and more

ID-31E ID-31A – Icom UHF D-STAR® Digital Transceiver built-in GPS receiver and weighs only 225g (approx.) – Icom update now the ID-31 Firmware Version E2 (CPU 1.03 DSP 1.04) at 2012/05/15.

D-STAR® DV (Digital Voice) mode has lost of advantages over analog FM mode: digitally modulated voice, 950bps (approx) data individual calling using a call sign and access to the World Wide Repeater Network linked with Internt (gateway) and to DPRS positions system.

The ID-31 using the GPS position information, the automatic repeater list-up function shows the list of nearby D-STAR® repeaters from the memory.
(®D-STAR Repeater memories pre-programmed:
the position data of the repeater is required!) –
(the picture a built-in GPS receiver that shows your current position, altitude and time on the Display)

Update Firmware !!  2012/05/15 Icom co., jp support – Version: Release E2 (CPU 1.03 DSP 1.04) for the ID-31A / ID-31E – !! – Please read the “Icom Firmware update information 6986-5EX – PDF download”

ID-31A/E (E: Europe) opera solo in UHF in D-STAR® (Digital) e in FM analogica, utilizza i dati di posizione del GPS entrocontenuto ed indica automaticamente i Ripetitori D-STAR®  più vicini o della zona dove uno si trova – La lista Ripetitori pre-programmata deve contenere anche le “coordinate” Log./Lat. dei Ponti Ripetitori Digitali. – L’apparato pesa solo 225 gr. (circa compresi batteria e antenna). – Troverete tutti i dati e specifiche ampie nei siti e documenti ufficiali.

L’utilizzo di una Memory-card, di tipo micro-SD da 2GB a 32GB (non fornita), consente la gestione e l’archiviazione, in modo interno o via Computer, dei dati GPS (log-GPS), l’audio delle comunicazioni (in WAV), di tutti i dati delle memorie (oltre alle 1.252 locazioni dell’apparato!) con il Software CS-31 e il relativo USB Driver di Icom da installare sempre nel Computer prima di collegare l’ID-31.

Aggiornamento Firmware!! Il 15.05.2012 Icom co., jp ha rilasciato un nuovo Firmware Ver. E2 (CPU 1.03 DSP 1.04) per l’ID-31E/A, vedere qui sopra il Link. – Per favore  leggere con cura le  istruzioni e cautele di Icom Inc. scaricabile  in ENG in PDF! – Necessario il cavo dati: OPC-2218LU opzionale e il suo USB Driver V.1.00.  Il firmware non può essere aggiornato tramite l’utilizzo della scheda microSD.

D-STAR® – DV DPRS – STARnet – ircDDB and more – (Info about D-Star and Link utility) below

Digital System: GMSK 4.8kbps digital voice (DV) mode and 128kbps data (*) (DD) mode communications are available. When using DD mode with a PC and the D-STAR® radio, high speed data communication is possible. (*) DD mode (128 kbps) is available with Icom ID-1 only at this time.

In DV mode operation, you can simultaneously send up to 950 bps of data, such as call sign, short data message or GPS position (DPRS) with a voice transmission.
When you communicate with other D-STAR® stations using a D-STAR® Repeater, it is ncessary to set repeater’s call sign in RPT1/RPT2.
