The evening culminated with a talk given by Andrew Hodges 9V1TT entitled “Introduction to D-STAR” It was a topic that was not familiar to many Singapore hams. There was also a show-and-tell as well as many questions from the floor.
Thanks, Andrew. Your talk came at a most opportune time as a few of us are intending to purchase D-STAR handies for operating digital on 2m and 70cm.
See you next month!
