Last night just prior to the DMRAA meeting I was in the hallway showing someone some details about my D-Star Hotspot project and Rod Ivers popped into the local repeater calling CQ. Rod mostly lives in Kansas City having retired and abandoning us in Des Moines a couple years ago, but he travels all over creation in a very nice RV.

I’ve always thought that he’d be a great D-Star user since he travels so much but it took him a while to get on the bandwagon. He purchased a new ID-880 at a hamfest last weekend and he’s learning all about it.

Cheers Rod, looking forward to hearing from you during your journeys!
