Descriptions

Enhance Your D-STAR Experience with Android™ App

The RS-MS1A (for Android™ devices) lets your D-STAR transceiver wirelessly connect to a D-STAR transceiver and remotely set the DR functions, link with a map app and send/receive messages in the DV mode. In addition, pictures on an Android™ device can be transmitted in the DV Fast Data mode or DV mode.

Share Pictures

Share Pictures Example

You can take pictures with your Android™ device, or use stored pictures, and share them. Pictures of your shack, operating place in the field, rigs, or friends can be sent to other D-STAR transceivers that are also using the app.

Add images and make QSOs even more enjoyable.

Pictures can be sent in the DV Fast Data mode or conventional DV mode (with voice).

Text Messaging

Text Messaging Example

Text messaging enables you to chat with other D-STAR users that are using the app. Use the function when texiting is better than exchanging information over voice. By using Android™ device, you can exchange messages in your preferred language.

DR Functions and Remote Setting

DR Mode example

You can set the transceiver’s “FROM” and “TO” fields and change some of the transceiver’s function settings from your Android™ device. When using with the optional VS-3 Bluetooth® headset, you can wirelessly talk through the transceiver from a short distance* away from your rig.
* Communication range of Bluetooth® is approximately 10 meters (33 feet). Bluetooth® technology compatible transceivers only (ID-4100A/E, ID-5100A/E and IC-705).   

D-STAR Stations and Repeater Sites Mapping

Repeater Map Example
©2017 Google - Map data

See the location of other stations or repeater sites on a map using received position data. The transceiver’s “FROM” and “TO” can be automatically set by tapping a repeater site or a D-PRS station on the map. When used with a previously used or locally cached map, your own and other station's locations can be shown without needing an Internet connection (Offline map function).

Repeater List Viewer

You can see detailed repeater information, including frequencies, call signs and frequency offsets in the Repeater list.

You can use it to manually set your transceiver when you are in a different area from your usual operating environment.

Call Sign List

The app enables you to edit call signs and names used in the DR function. Also, you can add a call sign and a name in the Call sign list at any time.

Receive History

In the DV mode, you can read and edit the received station’s information. Additional information from an Internet database, such as QRZ.com or APRS.fi, can be downloaded.

Import and Export

You can import a user-programmable repeater list or a repeater list, on the Internet, from a PC to the app. In addition, receive history can be exported from the app to a PC.
