For those of you interested Buzz Kutcher (K3GWK), the EC for Butts County, has a D-Star / D-RATS training class taking place Saturday August 29th. See his invitation below and respond if you are interested. You can use D-Star and D-RATS over the Internet and, additionally, there are ways to convey D-RATS over other digital protocols besides D-Star. In fact, initially using the Internet is a good way to start out using D-RATS and then advance to using it over RF when you are ready. Stockbridge is near by and not a difficult drive. D-RATS is one of the standard digital communication applications we use in Georgia for EMComm but can serve as a communications platform by other means and not just through a D-Star repeater. If you are interested, you should make a decision soon as this has been broadly advertised and space is limited.
We have set up a D-Star/D-RATS class for August 29. The class will be held at the Piedmont Henry Medical Center’s Education Building 1133 Eagle’s Landing Parkway (EXIT 224, I-75) in Stockbridge. It will begin at 9 AM and run until Noon. John Davis will be the instructor.
After a lunch break there will be an NBEMS workshop from 1 PM until 3 PM.
Hopefully we will get a good turn-out from the southeast quadrant of the Metro District.
