Thursday Night D-STAR Round Table. Join us on reflector XRF002A, XRF310A and XRF555A 7:00pm PDT weekly.
K6KD: DMR users connected to XLX313: Some of you may need to reconnect to intended module, e.g. Mod A/TG4001. Needed to restart reflector. Details here: d-star-roundtable.boards.net/thread/296/dmr-users-connected-xlx313

wb5eku: No D-Star Satellite for Christmas!

w4lks: For those that have a Kenwood TH-D74...kenwood released a new 64 page "Operating Tips" manual today: www.kenwood.com/i/products/info/amateur/software_download.html
W6KD: After AO-40, and this, perhaps we need to rename AMSAT to AMSPLAT.
