      I think the AMBE board add-on will be a welcome, and necessary, addition, after DVRPTR V1 boards start shipping.

              So glad you are on the team, so to speak, and that you are focussed on the basic purpose of the V1. As I have mentioned elsewhere, it would be fantastic if firmware for both D-STAR and P25 (which was in the original plan when the modem project started) could become available.

              The simple fact is that the V1 board was the catalyst for the sudden D-STAR expansion by allowing low cost but effective repeaters to be produced. If D-STAR is to continue to grow then such a product needs to be available for some time.

              It could have the same impact on Amateur P25 now that second hand P25 radios are appearing.

              Thanks again.
