Washington Hospital Center FCC App

Washington Hospital Center has an application pending before the FCC for a three-site DMR trunked system. Each site will use two frequencies:

464.0625, 464.3125
461.5125, 461.9125
462.1625, 463.2875

This system will probably replace the current LTR system in use at WHC.

New DSD+ "Fast Lane" Released

DSD+ "Fast Lane" 2.84 was released in the last day. (Fast Lane releases are like betas; the current "public release" of DSD+ is 1.101 and was released two years ago.)

This release contains relatively minor new features and fixes. The "Notes" text file that accompanies the software details the changes. Support for Project 25 Phase II decoding is still missing.
