If you own a DVMEGA and BlueStack, you can also use my other free app if you are traveling with your Android phone. See http://www.pa7lim.nl/bluedv/
AMBE3000 ( DVSI ) addition
If your hear an over modulated voice on DMR, please ask the amateur to disable AGC on his radio!!!
In the new BETA release of BlueDV for Windows it is possible to use a NWDR ThumbDV™ or DVMEGA DVStick 30 ( you need an original DVSI chip! ). With the ThumbDV™ or DVMEGA DVStick30 you can make a ( DSTAR or DMR ) QSO without a radio.
All you only need a Windows PC, ThumbDV™ DV3000 or DVMEGA DVStick 30 and a sound card ( headset is recommended to filter background noise ).
You can find more information about the AMBE 3000 stick here : http://www.pa7lim.nl/ambepage/
