Newton le Willows Amateur Radio Club (MX0NRC / M7DX)

Loan Equipment


DStar (Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio) was developed by the Japanese Radio League and utilises digital radio transmission for voice and data. DStar is usually operated on the VHF and UHF bands.

Unlike DMR, DStar was developed for Amateur Radio, and so is relatively easy to program. The first DStar rigs were developed by ICOM, but Kenwood has since developed several radios as well that are DStar capable.

Like Fusion and DMR, DStar can be run via the internet giving worldwide access on a handheld unit making it a perfect choice for those with limited or not room for an aerial.

NLWARC endorses Castle Electronics

After using a number of local and not so local Amateur Radio Repair Shops over the years, and having to get radio's re-repaired time and time again after shops have failed to set radio's up properly or have not explained what caused the fault allowing you to 'change your habits' NLWARC have been impressed with the technical knowledge and customer service provided by Geoff at Castle Electronics.

As a bonus Geoff has agreed to provide a 5% discount for all members of NLWARC.
