OK, so I'm having a little re-invigoration regarding ham radio after my discovery of DMR. I'm also possibly on the verge of entering the DStar world, something I said I'd never do years ago, but current research of the system and capabilities of modern transceivers leads me to believe it might be a cool thing to do. Icom used to be the only game in town when I did my griping (search DStar here and find my 2006-2007 rants) but now we have dongles, other dongles, maybe Connect Systems, and even Kenwood apparently entering the game. I'm on the verge of an ID-51A Plus handheld, and will make my decision shortly.
The method of my madness for this post? Given the capabilities of DStar and DMR, and of course the analog networking available through EchoLink etc., I thought it would be neat to establish a database of sorts of hams that frequent this website. I figure there could be some interesting communications between us pertinent to the radio hobby, DX'ing, and so on.
With that in mind, if you care to, please respond here with your callsign, capabilities whether they are digital and/or analog, DMR ID number, what repeater or reflector you hang out on on DStar, etc.. I'm going to build a Wiki page with this info, which if enough people contribute will be an ongoing work in progress and maybe a semi-good reference to chit chat about topics here or anything in general.
As far as my equipment goes, DMR capability using a Connect Systems CS801 and a CS751. I also have a Tytera MD-380 but thus far just for receive. I also have a Motorola Radius GM300 that I've used for 2M analog but it's not currently in use. My HF endeavors at this house have been a disaster, and I'm not active there at this time for anything other than receive.
Edit: Also have some 900 MHz equipment but needs a codeplug update. I MAY finally make it to Nearfest this spring, so I'll bring it if so in the hopes that the guys at the GEMOTO tent will be kind and zap it.
