The APRS Frequency Object spec has been updated now to include D-STAR
This spec has not been updated in several years. If anyone finds any
other needed edits, please let me know.
Here is the new section on D-STAR:
D-STAR STATION FORMATS:
To make a voice call with D-STAR station that uses a D-STAR repeater,
the callsign of the accessing repeater is needed. On the other hand,
to make a voice call with D-STAR station that does not use a D-STAR
the frequency of the station's voice channel is needed. Here are the
examples for the D-STAR QSY information.
Communication without using a repeater station:
1) FFF.FFFMHz D-STAR comment...
Communication using a repeater station:
2) FFF.FFFMHz D-STAR>CALLSN A comment...
3) D-STAR>CALLSN A comment...
1st 7-BYTES means D-STAR station format.
2nd 8-BYTES "CALLSN A" means the callsign of access repeater
"CALLSN A" is fixed 8 characters.
(The optional "oXXX" (SHIFT/OFFSET) information is available between
"FFF.FFFMHz" and "D-STAR")
