Anyone, anyone ?

D-Star radios are coming down in price, has anyone tried it yet ?

D-Star repeaters have started to show up in a few places ...

People are starting to set up repeaters just like the old voice repeaters, except instead of making voice calls from a radio people are setting up network data connections over radio, connections that can reach as far as VHF radio ... sort of like amateur radio super wifi, except non-commercial, and slower.

What are you pretending not to know ?
