DIGITAL DATA
Imagine a world where you can get a VHF and UHF repeater pair! Or when VHF and UHF DX does
not require a band opening! Or even a plug and play repeater system that gives you functionality
and capabilities that no other radio service in the world can offer! This dream has become a reality
with Icom’s ID-RP2000V and ID-RP4000V D-STAR modules.
Whether you are a repeater owner wanting to experiment in the digital world or a club who wants
more from their repeater network, D-STAR is definitely the future of amateur radio.

RF Modules:
ID-RP2D: (23cm Data)
One of the most powerful functions of
D-STAR is the ability to move data. The
ID-RP2D provides an access point with a
data rate of 128kbps. Depending on the system setup, the 128kbps is perfect for setting
up an e-mail and/or file server for EmComm
support. It’s also perfect for connecting to the
internet for web applications or support.
Whether you use the 128kbps for e-mail
or file servers, connecting to an internet
source via a router will give you the capability of checking out the radar from the
National Weather Service or National Hurricane Center.
Digital Voice: No room for another
repeater pair? No problem for the Icom
D-STAR repeaters! In addition to the
128kbps data, D-STAR incorporates the
power of digital voice and 1kbps data mode
on 2m, 70cm, and 23cm. The spectral
efficiency, crystal clarity, and the ability of
repeating data and voice communications
on a single 6.25 kHz channel is something yet to be seen in any other radio
service! With this capability, expand the
number of repeaters available in your area.

Crossband Operation: Finally, a commercially available legal
crossband repeater! With proper callsign programming in any D-STAR
compatible mobile or portable, the Icom D-STAR repeaters will automatically route your signal to any other RF module connected to a common
RP2. With simple repeater commands, you can direct your communications through any of the RF modules.
1 kbps Data / Voice
With the capability of handling up to four RF modules, the ID-RP2C
repeater controller is the cornerstone of
the D-STAR repeater system. This includes
basic in-band as well as crossband operation between any of the four digital voice
RF modules. In addition to basic control
of the RF modules, the RP2C also provides
linking capabilities through the internet
and future 10GHz backbone products.
128 kbps Data
The power of D-STAR offers
flexibility and system growth!

Repeater Configuration:
There are three distinct repeater configurations currently available.
Local: This configuration is very similar to most analog repeater systems without any linking or
internet requirements or capabilities, and is primarily used for Digital Voice and 1kbps operations.
Local with Internet: Expand to the local repeater with the addition of the ID-RP2D and a
simple DSL connection through a router. While this allows internet connectivity with an ID-1, there
is no control over who is able to use the internet connection. (Interconnection with other remote
users is not possible.)
Gateway: This is the ultimate D-STAR configuration providing a controlled internet connection
as well as linking to other repeaters installed into a common D-STAR network. All users of the DV
(digital voice) gateway of 128kbps internet connection must be registered in one of the D-STAR
networked repeaters. ( NOTE: A static IP address is required to set up a gateway D-STAR repeater.
A few examples of a gateway network can be seen on www.dstarusers.org website.)

Applications and Uses
1kbps: The 1kbps is the transport
layer for your data communications using
the serial port of your computer. While
considered a slow data rate, the 1kbps
can move a considerable amount of data
and co-exist on the same frequency with
DV communications.

each of the Icom D-STAR compatible radios
utilizes a serial port interface for 1kbps.
So, any files, messages or data you
send through the serial port or USB port
on your laptop will move through the
D-STAR network.
d*Chat: One of the first third-party
Windows® software applications for
D-STAR, d*Chat, created by NJ6N, works
on low-speed D-STAR (DV data). It offers
keyboard-to-keyboard instant text messaging between multiple stations on a
simplex frequency or through a repeater.
d*Chat can be set up to send automated
status reports at regular intervals. A printable event log is kept. Download for free:

PDA:
(Applications pending) Communicate with others via text through the
serial port on your PDA. Complete forms
and send them from in the field, or just a
quick text message to say “hello”. This is
a perfect combination for the amateur on
the go!
GPS:

| ID-RP2000V 2m |
| ID-RP4000V 70cm |
Connect any NMEA compatible
GPS to the serial port of the Icom DSTAR compatible radios and send GPS
coordinates, either with each press of the
PTT button or at preset TX intervals. The
IC-2820H has optional GPS capabilities
with coordinates relayed on its LCD.

Gateway Communications: Expand your VHF, UHF, and SHF horizons by adding the D-STAR gateway.
The Gateway operates like a router, directing your communications either locally or over the internet based on the callsigns used. There are four callsigns used in routing calls over a D-STAR repeater. The most critical is the “My”
or “Mycall” as it identifies the originating communication. There are two repeater callsign locations as well as a destination callsign, “Your” or “Urcall”. The tables below show
proper programming of these callsign locations.

Note: Each callsign location can hold up to eight characters. The 8th character is the “switch” and is necessary for controlling the repeater.
Spaces are required to position the switch character into the 8th character location.
