Extend D-STAR Coverage

The new Terminal mode and Access point mode enable you to make D-STAR calls through the Internet, even from areas where no D-STAR repeater is accessible.
  • Terminal mode - Connect the ID-31A PLUS to the Internet through a PC or Android® device, and send your voice and/or data through the Internet gateway to a destination repeater.
  • Access point mode - Use an ID-31A PLUS2 radio connected to the Internet through a PC or Android® device, as an Access point. You can use another D-STAR radio to send your voice and/or data through the Access point radio, and communicate with D-STAR stations all over the world.

DV Fast Data Mode*

By using data in place of voice frames, the ID-31A transfers data 3.5 times faster (3480 bps) than in the conventional DV mode (with voice). Pictures taken by an Android™ device can be quickly transmitted in the DV Fast Data mode.
*The DV Fast Data mode is not compatible with the DV mode low-speed data communication.

DV and FM Repeater Search Function

The repeater search function searches for nearby analog FM repeaters as well as DV repeaters using the repeater memories and the integrated GPS*.
*To use the repeater search function, the position data of the repeater is required.
