I have been looking for D-STAR equipment and the only equipment I can find is ICOM. Does any one else make D-STAR ready equipment either HT or mobile?

ICOM has been the sole source for most DSTAR gear. However, some enterprising hams have come up with ways to made other gear work for DSTAR. http://www.dutch-star.eu/ is one supplier of DSTAR compatible boards for building non-ICOM repeaters and gateways. Their boards can also convert a 9600 baud FM into a DSTAR radio, and they have pre-announced a line of DSTAR compatible radios.

I maybe wasting my time waiting for Kenwood or Vertex / STANDARD AKA YAESU to produce radio. All I know Icom doesn't own D-STAR, the JARL does. I wonder if I aquired Motorola Saber III and switch out IMBE chip and install a AMBE, I wonder that would work/.
