In our very first iPhone article, Andrew Spaxman investigates how you can listen to D-STAR live on your Apple iPhone or iPod touch.
I love the iPhone. I’ve had one by my side now for a good 18 months. It gives me full control of my business on the move, organises my personal life and it also helps me in my radio hobby too. I really would be lost without it.
Over the next few months, I’m going to show you a few nifty tricks that you can do yourself with your iPhone that involve amateur radio.
Here’s the first trick – listening to D-STAR
Yep that’s right, simply go to the iPhone app store on your phone and search for Ustream.
Once you have found and installed the ustream viewer, launch the application and search for GB7YD. Your search results will find our live stream from the GB7YD D-STAR repeater for you to listen and watch from your apple iPhone.
Unfortunately you cannot talk back yet. SYRG is working on this one 🙁 We would like to hear from any iPhone application developers that could develop a D-STAR radio application with us.
Any problems or questions viewing the GB7YD stream on your iPhone, please let (ED!) PLEASE let ANDY know!
