DStarInterface is an adjunct to javAPRSSrvr and it works as an
Internet gateway by converting D-STAR GPS position reports to the APRS
format and sending it to the APRS-IS.

DStarTNC2 is software that runs on my laptop which, like
DStarInterface, converts D-STAR GPS position reports into the APRS
format and allows me to use UI-View32 to view the data, just like as
if it was APRS.

I also have the advantage of using a single frequency for both APRS
and Voice simultaneously.
