Thanks Robert! I have looked over that info. I am likely in a bad spot to reach VE6IPG and would prefer to register to it when I finally get some D-Star gear. I wondered if all the calls directed to me would go through IPG or would check other repeaters I have been using. Or whether I should register to the strongest D-Star repeater I can access...not sure of the "politically correct" way around it without steppiong on anyone's toes so to speak. I will have to send Dave an email and check with him further on it.
DStar is alive and well
There is some information on caraham.org about VE6IPG at the following link.
To get full access to the DStar network you do need to register on one of the gateway repeaters. (But only ONE)
Best you also contact VA6DBA
I'm pondering to get an HT for D-star in the near future. I am in the Kincora area, Symons Valley with poor access to repeaters in SW/SE beyond Nose Hill. I doubt I would reach a VE6IPG machine so a repeater like VE6GHZ would be easier to access. Is there any gentleman's protocol to which D-Star that I eventually would register for? Or are there any groups that would be offended if you accessed their repeater vs our clubs' (you many send me a private email on that if you prefer ...I am not trying to stir up bad feelings LOL !). Currently I do have DMR (MD380) capability on VE6RYC UHF.
