DV4mini Hotspot: a link with a simplex frequency (UHF) and a repeater through the Internet.

DV4mini Hotspot for the 70 cm band and can use it with a D-STAR or DMR or C4FM * transceivers – The DV4mini is a very small but also very capable USB Stick that can expand any PC into a Hotspot for the D-STAR and DMR modes (C4FM * Fusion is in development) – (trial beta ver. 18.8 or later uncheck “C4FM Gateway” only DN & VW mode) – Please read official data and the User manual! (link below)

DV4mini-PC-01

DV4mini  allows linking with DCS, XRF and REF refectors for D-STAR as well s DMR refectors (trial beta ver. 18.8 or later unckeck C4FM Gateway!). With the DV4mini it has become possible to create a hotspot with minimal resources and thus get access to the (Digital Voice) DV network.
[NoteRefector is a server connected to the Internet or Ham Net and is linked to a number of digital Ham Radio repeaters. If one of these repeaters is active it will send the voice data stream to the refector- (Xrefectors are the second generation of D-STAR reflectors… etc) – (DCS (Digital Call Server) is the most modern D-STAR refector system and in worldwide use, each as 26 rooms) – (DMR refectors consist of several regional servers, ach other via a superordinate network one Hytera & one Motorola) (System Fusion supports WIRES-X internet linking – .. node station requires external optional HRI-200 !)

The DV4mini is a great UHF digital hotspot. It’s support D-Star, DMR and C4FM* !! Very promising technology in process.

DV4mini-software-01

The DV4mini will be connected thru the USB interface with a PC or a single board computer (es: Raspberry PI 2 Mod. B also a keyboard, mouse and HDMI display) and the required software will be installed: V.1.4 DV4mini Controll Panel.

DV4mini-01

Frequency 420-450MHz – Modulation types: D-Star GMSK (Gaussian 2FSK) – DMR PLUS 4FSK Raised Cosine – C4FM Fusion DN & VW 4FSK, in process* – Power output: 0.03 mW to 10 mW. – RX -120dBm – Read more to the official web-page.

I believe not now, it’s available for Windows, Linux and Raspian ! (Raspberry Pi 2) – For those interested in digital communications, like D-Star, DMR and C4FM there’s a new dongle who will be coming out soon (… they are saying it will be available for international shipping next week).

Touch Screen, first seen on the IC-7100, now migrating to other models too: a touch display. Icom’s black and white screen LCD display seems a bit odd, in an era where color screens are default on almost any device! (see the Yaesu FTM-400D below) – The ID-5100 new DV/DV Dual-watch and Receives both FM/FM, FM/DV modes simultaneously (Monitors two DV signals & receives either channel! see below)

Nearest Repeater Search with GPS built-in – This system works in digital and now seems in analog mode! An interesting feature is “Nearest Repeater Search”, which acts a bit like the roaming function we know from cell phones and DMR radios with GPS built-in.

D-STAR & ID-5100 Quick-info & Features
D-STAR Protocol the linking is accomplished by the repeater controller, the gateway server and just recently the reflector. – When using this method, only the source radio’s signal path is specified. – In the new G2 Software an administrator can specify an alias that includes multiple nodes. – A user then specifies the alias in their [UR Call] and their signal is routed to all nodes that the administrator has specified (total of up to 11), the repeater sends a stream of data to each of the specified servers.

D-STAR-routing D-STAR-multi-site analog-digital

Latest software written by Robin, AA4RC d-Plus Linking with Reflectors and the multiple repeaters can all link to the same reflector (all traffic on one node is repeated to another node) – The ID-5100 has a new generation design and range of features including: • d-Plus reflector usability (can select “reflector” in to field) • Enhanced DR mode (also include analogue repeaters!?) • Added “Nearby Repeater Scan” in DR scan function • RS-MS1A Android application will be a free to use download. It controls the radio for DR mode operation, exchanging text messages/pictures and showing GPS location over Google Maps etc. (preliminary….see the official data and info)

D-STAR Satellite Getting Closer to Launch
The launch is currently proposed for late 2014, but the satellite is being assembled at this time. Check out the videos at on the AMSAT UK website (link).

OUFTI-1D-cubesat

AMSAT UK: The OUFTI-1 team have released videos of the integration of the amateur radio D-STAR GMSK CubeSat built by students at the University of Liege. – The team plan to use 145.950 MHz for a D-STAR and FSK AX.25 downlink and 145.980 MHz for a CW beacon. A D-STAR uplink on 435.045 MHz is proposed… read more by link (…tnx to the team.. and to AMSAT UK !)

[Note] – The current Rev. #12/#13 version incorporates the new PA-UNIT and LPF modules, and in addition several other modules are also “up-rev.” from the earlier version.

IC-7700_Quad-fan

The IC-7700 uses a STAC2942 power amplifier in common source push-pull configuration (common source). The power amplifier provides a eliable 200W of output power up to 54MHz. – The STAC2942B is a gold metallized N-channel MOS field-effect RF power transistor. It is intended for use in 50 V DC large signal applications up to 250 MHz (ST datasheet)
The effective quad cooling fan system makes it possible to generate 200W full power output even during full duty cycle operation.
