D-Star Is Cool

I'm hanging out in a hotel room in Decatur, GA, where I've been for the past few days for telephone school. One of the things I like about being in the Atlanta area is the fact that their D-Star repeater is hooked up to the gateway, which means I can talk to folks all over the world on my ham radio.

Tonight, I had a nice chat with 2M0ONW, Kevin, in Scotland.

Technology like this is what's going to keep ham radio fresh and interesting. I'm looking forward to our local repeater getting gateway capabilities.

In other news, I've been sick for the past few days. Cold/flu symptoms. I've been hopped up on Contact medication to try and fight it off. I'm going to be crashing soon -- the nighttime version of Contact knocks me out.
