The DV Dongle connects to your PC or Apple Mac via a USB port and provides encoding and decoding of compressed audio using the DVSI AMBE2000 full duplex vocoder DSP chip. AMBE technology is used in all D-Star radios to provide efficient voice transmissions. It is also used in some HF digital protocols by vendors like AOR. The DVTool application used with the DV Dongle may be installed and run on Microsoft Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X Leopard, or many flavors of Linux. 


The DV Dongle has four LED’s which indicate the current operating status: 

  • The blue LED shows data is being transmitted from the PC/Mac to the device. 
  • The yellow LED shows data is being transmitted from the device to the PC/Mac. 
  • The green LED shows the mode of operation, slow pulsing indicates idle and fast blinking indicates running. 
  • The red LED shows overruns or underruns between the PC/Mac and the device and should normally be off.

Frequent red LED activity indicates your PC/Mac may not be sufficiently fast to operate with the device or you may have other programs running that are taking CPU cycles away from the DVTool application.

  • PC or Mac with 2.0GHz CPU 
  • 512 MB or RAM (or more) 
  • High Speed Internet connection (DSL, Cable, 3G)
