ThumbDV addition ( Experimental )

In the new pre BETA release of BlueDV for Windows it is possible to use a NWDR ThumbDV DV3000U. With the ThumbDV you can make a ( DSTAR or DMR ) QSO without a radio.
All you only need a Windows PC, ThumbDV DV3000U and a sound card ( headset is recommended to filter background noise ).

More information about the ThumbDV can be found here: http://nwdigitalradio.com/products/
