Re: Can D-Star work on VO-52?

Does anyone know how if this digital mode will be immunized against 
interference as it was one of the main gain SSB was offering when implemented?

As many audio digital mode actually in operation they are needing a very good 
and stable carrier and no interference at the RX point. That's something an 
amateur radio transmission does not have too often.

D start system testing is now in his very early stages only on company is 
offering a five radio and a repeater package in a way to permits amateurs a way 
to experience it. and It is on 1.2 Ghz.

As any new communication mode as the numerous PSK's mode and the APRS, PACKET 
are offering new ways to communicate but they don't replace what it is 
available. SSB replace AM as there was real benefits is the same will also 
happen to audio digital technologies? It depends on how effective this mode 
will perform or not perform in a real QRM/QRN situation.

I think it will be as SSTV and ATV a new mode of communication but due to his 
present limitations SSB and FM will be harder and longer to replace in the 
actual science level.
