D-STAR Gateway Version 3 ('G3') Software Available to UK Repeater Keepers

The RS-RP3C gateway software which is being rolled out across the globe is now available from Icom UK.

D-Star for Beginners
By Brian Schell

The new software has significant improvements over its previous version and will enable D-STAR users to operate the “Terminal ID” and “Access Point” features for the forthcoming ID-51EPlus2 and ID-4100E D-STAR radios. Those radios will function only as normal D-STAR radios until this implementation occurs.

The software will be provided free of charge on CD to repeater keepers with Icom repeater hardware. The software will only be provided in this way as the RS-RP3C CD's are serialised and will be registered to repeater keepers.

To qualify for the free of charge software, Icom are requesting the following details be sent to info@icomuk.co.uk

  • Repeater Callsign
  • Your Name
  • Your Callsign
  • Your address (needed to send CD)
  • Postcode
  • Confirm you will only use this software to update the repeater listed above. (YES / NO)
