    YEP, just what we need!

    YEP, just what we need in ham radio, another high priced pretty much single manufacturer digital communication system like D-star with trunking and internet connectitity, etc. :(

    the only one here who sold out the most is this chick..


    she had to get tattoos of Motorola logo for her job. that sucks.

    yea I 2nd the technology un-wow I dont see how its cool that radio systems are connected to the internet to be useful, until the codec's are open source and the technology is unified this is just another product for people to have fun with, but I really dont see how this "advances" the hobby.

    I sure don't want to rain on anyone's parade, who am I to judge?

    But - Well said. Amateur Radio was literally built by hams themselves. When I was in the Boy Scouts (aaaages ago) the father of the scoutmaster was ham, (Tom Gloystein, was his name). He was amazing. He would QSO in SSB without even turning the VFO on. I have no idea how he did it.

    He built everything he had, as much as he could. As I look back, it must have been pre-WWII stuff. (he was born ca1900-10?) The transmitter took an entire relay rack and was mostly all open. ("Don't touch anything!"). That made a permanent impression on me.

    It wouldn't be much fun for me if all the hobby consisted of was just buying stuff and using it.

    Too Many Single Manufacturer Specific Systems

    I need another manufacturer specific system about as much as a fish needs a bicycle! :rolleyes:
    When will it end? Oh! when WE quit buying into the sales hype.
    IMHO keep MotoTrbo in NYC!

    I can't believe they're trying to sell us this.
    Commercial wireless ripped out TDMA 8 years ago.
    I do CW 95% of the time anyway. That was standardized about 120 years ago.

    Does the CQR repeater use the trbo digital mode? Is mototrbo Digital voice a part 97 accepted scheme? Is there any publicly available documentation on this particular digital protocol? This discussion came up recently in another forum. As I understand it Motorola has the protocol specification under proprietary lock and key== only developers licensed and certified by motorola can access the protocol? Is this still true?
