Default Digital radios

The following have had digital radios out, Motorola, EF Johnson, RELM/Bendix, Datron,M/A-Com, Thales and they have now been joined by Icom and Kenwood. Some of these radios can be had used for a decent price... remeber one thing, that its not till you start adding options such as trunking, encryption and other items that these things begin to soar in price. So whne you compare it to the price of a D-Star (over a grand) some of the above radios can definitely be found for half that and maybe even less. Also they are available in VHF and UHF, while currently the D-STAR is not. Icoms other offer in digital is in its mobiles and HTs but when you add a $200 + board to a $189 HT or $300 Mobile, its still leaving the CAI commercial gear in the running.

Chill out. There are a number of P25 ham repeaters around the country, being used in digital and analog modes. I've monitored a couple of them with my Pro96 when traveling. Quite simple, although pricey, to do P25 in the ham bands by means of purchasing secondhand (or new) P25 gear.

Default P25 Ham Repeaters

To K9KRO,

db, did you ever come up with a list of P25 ham repeaters?

I have found 7 on VHF and 5 on UHF, most from this site.

Have to petition the ARRL to put a spot in the repeater directory for P25 NAC codes.

iCom helps fund ARRL, along with many other companies/organizations, and has even funded them to advertise/talk about D-Star.

Heh...considering the above, I think they'd be more likely to publish D-Star repeaters more likely than Astro Systems.

ICOM manufactures P25 equipment as well. This shouldn't make a difference on who they advertise with.
