In pre BETA version 0939X

You can download the pre BETA now from my website!! You can also use the pre BETA if you do not have a ThumbDV DV3000U.

New is the dongle feature ( make QSO via PC SoundCard ). You can make a DSTAR QSO via the ThumbDV DV3000 from NWdigital.

I also changed the DSTAR hosts files to the “My Documents\BlueDV” directory so you can edit them without administrator rights.

I also changed the call lookup from online to offline. There is now an option to download the latest calls.
The brandmeister master list is now also offline and downloadable. ( seen the DDOS issues with brandmeister )

On DMR you can see now also the incoming TG. Now you can see where the voice is coming from 🙂

BlueDV is now translated to Chinees. All you have to do is set your Windows language to traditional chinees.

DV3000U from NWdigital ThumbDV is also supported in the new pre BETA. Try it and let me know if you find any issues!
