Change seems to be in the air...

You can buy a ThumbDV at the Flex store now, which would only be of any use with SSDR 1.50, so I assume that its release is "imminent".

The primary purpose is primarily to encode/decode D-Star these days. Any plans to use the Ambe chip, it contains, to implement DMR/Mototrbo capability in the Flex signature series?

I have both types of radios already if you need a beta tester...

The codec is part of the equation. The second part is the on-air modem and any other code to support the mode. With D-STAR this required an external app to handle callsign data for example.

We are making the modules open source so that others that are so inclined can expand on what we've done. We may also do more just depending on popularity, demand, etc.
