BlueDV Author: David - PA7LIM
This is David and he lives in Utrecht with his girlfriend and beautiful daughter. His occupation is Linux/Network/Cloud consultant at a company in The Netherlands. Certified in VCP, CCNP datacenter, CCNP routing/switching, CCDP, LPI 1&II, RHCE (almost RHCA). In his private life he likes to play/listen music, play golf, drive motor and write applications in several languages. In May 2013 he passed his Novice HAM license ( PD7L ) and 4 months later he bought his icom ID-51E and red dongle. The combination of HAM radio and programming brought him to the idea to write an android application called ircDDB remote. In March 2015 he passed his Full license ( thanks to PA3GER and PA3FMN) . His new call is now PA7LIM. In the summer of 2015 he started a new project. He tried to make a DSTAR hotspot/dongle on an Android phone. He received a AMBE3000 board from Guus PE1PLM en started to build the software. After a few weeks of wiresharking (network sniffer) the G4KLX software, he was able to make his first QSO from an Android phone. Then he started to make a hotspot with the DVMEGA dual band transceiver, so he could make a QSO from a ICOM transceiver. In 2016 David got in touch with Rudy PD0RZY, who helped him to understand the Brandmeister DMR part. In the meanwhile Guus PE1PLM made the DVMEGA DMR ready and Ruud PE1MSZ made the Bluetooth board. In February David had a working DSTAR and DMR hotspot.

In this presentation, I, will be talking about my personal experience with using BlueDV on a 10" Android tablet that is connected to my DVMega on a Bluestack as pictured at the top of this page..
The images may or may not look exactly like mine depending on the device you are using the software on but the main items will apply. Prerequisites to making an actual connection using this app include connecting your android or windows device to the internet either via cell data connection provided on the phone or through a mobile data hotspot such as an iPhone or wifi network. I trust you know how to do that.
