G4LUE was granted a Notice of Variation for implementation of GB7YD port A.
Today at approximately 15:30 G4LUE with the assistance of 2E0VYV turned on GB7YD port A
This makes the South Yorkshire Repeater Group the first “amateur” radio group to implement the complete icom A, B, C G2 system in the UK.
“The IC-7100 is a HF+6m+VHF+UHF all mode compact radio with an innovative slanted touch-screen LCD controller. A first for an Icom transceiver, the IC-7100 is designed to the 70MHz band in European versions where 70MHz is open to Amateur radio enthusiasts. To maintain its commitment to D-STAR, all versions of the IC-7100 will come with standard D-STAR DV mode.”
After the success of last year’s event, Icom Inc. has once again decided to run the D-STAR QSO party, which will be held between 0:00 on the 21st of September to 24:00 on the 23rd of September 2012 (UTC).
The goal this year is to encourage D-Star operators to make contact with other D-Star operators in as many different countries as possible by using D-STAR repeaters.
