D-STAR (Digital Smart Technologies for Amateur Radio) is a digital voice and data protocol specification developed for use in amateur radio. Users with D-Star transceivers may communicate over the air and via the internet. 

In addition to D-STAR transceivers, a DV Dongle may be used in a computer USB slot (with DV Dongle software and the computer's microphone and speaker) to allow connection to the D-Star network via the internet.  Read more
