    Are you using Droid-Star?

    DroidStar is an android app. It currently supports RX of D-Star, DMR, Fusion, NXDN, and P25. TX of all modes except D-Star using software vocoding is currently supported.

    Droid-Star was created by Doug, AD8DP. Doug has created some other very interesting things. Check out his site at http://www.dudetronics.com/.

    Please join our User Group at https://groups.io/g/DROID-Star so we can all share our experiences and support each other.

    Thanks! Joe, N2QOJ

    Just started using it on Android. Wish there were instructions or descriptions of talk groups. Just learning about DMR, but this connects to so much more.

    It would be great if the groups was more for attracting advanced users and developers. As Doug mentions on his github page "DudeStar/DroidStar makes use of software from a number of other open source software projects, including MMDVMHost, MMDVM_CM, XLXD, DSDcc, MBELIB, op25 (GNU Radio), mvoice, and others. Not only is software from these projects being used directly, but learning about the various network protocols and encoding/decoding of the various protocols was only possible thanks to the authors of all of these software projects."

    If users would like the performance of the software vocoders improved you'll need to helps spread the word, etc. Ham radio is a group effort.

    More information on the software vocoder part:

    I agree. I hope we get many more members from all areas of interest - developers, experimenters, users, whatever. Thanks for highlighting those points. Joe, N2QOJ

    Just stumbled onto this post today and this is really nifty. I do see a 10-30% packet loss on wifi, but my test audio seemed to sound just fine.. nifty!

    Brandmeister is down? Drama between DroidStar and Brandmeister?

    Exactly! I've been unable to gain access. I'm being told Brandmeister does not support Droidstar.
    I had just downloaded the app. Time and energy wasted. Couldn't get a straight answer anybody. I won't support any of this either.

    there are so many other “sandboxes “ to play in. Check out TGIF on DMR. The FreeStar Network, is great too. Who needs Brandmeister?
