Peanut is back. The latest Android version is stable and gives me more time to spend with my family. When I have time, I can work on bugfixes and features. Many thanks for all your friendly emails!!
Working on new project called Peanut. On the Peanut you can talk with HAM amateurs around the world via an Android device, network radio or Windows PC.
Peanut is free and only for HAM radio amateurs.

- There are local rooms like SPANISH, DUTCH, ENGLISH, JAPANESE, KOREAN etc. These rooms are in HD quality.
- The ROOMS like REF030C, XRF076C, XRF070C etc are linked to DSTAR. You can make a QSO with your phone/network radio to these reflectors. The rooms are transcoded with AMBE3000 chips located around the world.

If you are new to DSTAR/DMR or Fusion, the peanut project will give you a first impression to the world of digital HAM radio. The Peanut project will provide some reflectors but not all. If you want to make the next step, check out these nice ICOM radio’s ( ICOM ). If you do not have a local repeater, you can run your own hotspot ( DVMega, ZUMspot or MMDVM_HS) at home.
You can also buy your own AMBE3000 and use all DSTAR/DMR reflectors. You can use my other project software : bluedv

Thanks to Yoshi JH1TWX and Andre PD1AEU. Both spend a lot of time testing and administrate the project.
Keep in mind.. It is experimental! I am writing this software for fun and have no commercial intentions. Peanut is only for HAM amateurs!
Have fun experimenting!
