I ran the RARC D-Star net last night from my hotel room in Maryland and it went very well.
I brought my DVAP with me and had a REALLY poor wireless network connection in the room. I am very pleased with how well the DVAP performs, it just continues to make my HT a wonderful transceiver.
I only had 1 person who wished to check in that I wasn't able to hear (RPT2 setting issue). It just worked great.
The D-Star digital packet requirements are very forgiving, I am much more pleased with its operation as I've learned it's pros and cons.
