Question from a newbie to D-STAR. I chose D-STAR as my primary digital mode. I don't intend to buy DMR or Wires-X capable radio and am wondering about interoperability between D-STAR and DMR and between D-STAR and Wires-X. I haven't gone through all forum posts and researched this but am hoping to get some background on cross-mode (or transcoding?) operation from those who have more experience here. My hope is that with my D74A or IC-9100 operating D-STAR that I could operate with DMR talkgroups or with Wires-X rooms via my openSPOT2. Can anyone educate me or refer me to information on this? Thanks! AL7G.
D-STAR uses an older, incompatible voice codec, so cross mode between D-STAR and other modes would require full audio transcoding hardware.
