In a decade, Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio, AKA D-STAR, went from an experiment to a serious Amateur Radio mode used by thousands of Amateur Radio Enthusiasts. But with raising a pre-teen adolescent comes challenges to life as we know it. The obsessions, tantrums, rumors and the emotional outbursts; “you just don’t understand me!” are commonly heard in discussions of the JARL Protocol. Parental memories, you got to love them!
With a growth rate of 2,500 new users per month, there are many questions that arise from those who are generally curious about D-STAR, as well as those who are new users. One of the most asked questions heard; “where can I learn more about D-STAR?”
