February GARA Meeting: All About Digitial
What comes to mind when you hear the word “digital?” Do you think of that old DEC computer you used to have in the late 1990s? Or maybe about some dystopian future like in the “Matrix” movies? One of the visionaries in digital radio in North Carolina is our very own Steve Blackford, K4SQI. Steve has had a vision to push convergence between modes, make digital radio accessible, and link up repeaters throughout our state and beyond. He has experimented, built servers, tried hotspots, used laptops, dongles and Pis, and done all sorts of other things to get this system stable and functional. And functional it is. Steve has communicated with and learned from other digital link pioneers in other states, worked with existing and upcoming digital audio networks, and has come up with something pretty special in North Carolina – the Carolina Link. That’s what he’s going to tell us about on Monday.
