This is the first time in a long time I have visited this website and just wanted to share how impressed I am with how much activity is being driven on this forum as well as the continued interest around digital voice.
Who remembers back in 2016 when I gave a digital voice presentation back when OMARC used to meet at the fire training center? The world was a far different place back then and so much has happened around digital voice since then.
While I have not had much time for radio in the past year especially between starting my own company and raising a family, not long ago I was approached by the Orange County (OCARC) amateur radio club where they are asking many of the same questions as we are within OMARC.
This Thursday I am giving a presentation to them which was based on what I presented to OMARC 4 years ago and what motivated me to create HVDN.
Here is a sneak peak at the presentation, sans animations plus the one from 2016. for those that were not there for that bender.
The day after the upcoming Wednesday 21st OMARC meeting (Important for nominations for office!), I will release the global DV data on my usual May/October update. Given the timing of both the OMARC and OCARC meetings, I did not want to update the global October 2020 data fully just yet, but that will be available on October 20th on the HVDN website.
Hope to catch you all on TG31368 (MHV) one day soon and finally get Brandmeister to let me connect the virtual bridge back full time to TG31630 (STEM) after it was ruined by some people learning the pro/con of All-Star.
Lately all I have had time for has been an occasional check in on TG98006 (AMSAT) to coordinate a 1.2 GHz contact using the AO-92 satellite.
