Smile This is How it Was About Two Years Ago...

There was a thread titled "New Radio Does DMR, D-Star and Fusion"

> https://forums.radioreference.com/di...ar-fusion.html <

So, what ever happened to those radios (mobile & HT)? I ain't seen no hide nor hair of them.

Anyone have any info?

Thanks in advance.

73 and take care,

Alan - N2DRO

This is just a guess, but the technology is proprietary and maybe they couldn't obtain the proper licensing.

They still claim it will be available this year...I'm not holding my breath or placing any bets. Perhaps someone can ask them face to face at Dayton (Xenia).

And it is apparently no longer supported. Wireless Holdings will never see anymore of my money.

Do you really need digital???? If you want to throw away some money, there are many worthwhile charities who would appreciate the help.

Each to their own, but I do not see the compelling need for digital.

I would like to see more digital. I have D-Star, DMR and NXDN radios. I prefer 6.25KHz NXDN then DMR and last D-Star for audio quality.

Once you get used to digital audio, no flutter, and no static, itís annoying to use analogue.

You may have more coverage but your county shows at least one C4FM, D-STAR, NXDN and P25 repeater.

You don't need amateur radio, it's a want.

Why don't you advance the art and contribute instead of shrugging off new proven technologies?

Why do people complain that there isn't activity on repeaters? Maybe there is but they can't decode them.

FYI Wireless Holdings never showed up at Dayton this year; I was not surprised at all by their absence.
