About  Tampa D-STAR .info and Tampa D-STAR.com

News: D-Star QSO PartyClick here to find out more!

Last May we unexpectedly lost a great friend and the webmaster of TAMPADSTAR.COM.  N2LZ.   The site is dedicated to his work and inspiration as a friend and amateur radio operator with regard to DSTAR. With the support from Dave's family I was able to register the domain names necessary to begin the updating and rehosting Tampastar.com. After a few snags with the hosting service over the information it became clear that we would need to build out Tampadstar.info. So here we are Dave. I think he would give us a nod and chuckle in that special humor only he could provide!

We all miss you N2LZ. '73" to you my friend. ~~KI4HHK.

W4RNT New D-STAR Registration

A note to W4RNT users and those wishing to register.

if someone needs to register or those already registered wanting to update with the W4RNT System please route to https://dstar-rant.no-ip.org/Dstar.do URL .... this will get you to the W4RNT registration sign in screen to proceed to register….  

Admins of the W4RNT will not register your call sign if you have previously registered your call sign on another Gateway system or the REGIST site. 

Be aware!! User registration is a Three step process. Once the administrator approves your initial request you should receive an email with instructions for completing step three.
                   If you do not receive an email, within a week of submitting your request for registration, first check your SPAM folder then contact the administrator for the gateway you registered on.


Do not register on more than one gateway!

It has the potential of locking out your station on all gateways and limits you to local operation only.
