DVSwitch is a Client-Server application for Amateur Radio Digital Voice. This provides a "Server" application running on a Raspberry Pi (RPi) or other Linux platform.

It can also be installed on a cloud server with Linux. The server application is distributed as an RPi image with all features and functions installed.

Therefore, there is no need to download additional modules or programs or install them yourself on a Raspberry Pi. There are two clients available for DVSwitch. One is Android and it is
available in the Google App Store to display almost any type of Android device. In addition to this there is also the python USRP Client (pyUC) which is available for use on Windows, Linux or Mac.

DVSwitch supports all current Digital Voice functions without any additional hardware, except for D-Star. For the D-Star, an external vocoder circuit is used, such as the Northwest Digital ThumbDV dongle.
For other functions, the Vocoder software included with DVSwitch provides high-quality sound, and while DVSwitch has been around for a long time, it was somewhat complicated to set up and mostly used by deep computer geeks. But with this version, an average radio amateur can get it up and running in less than 10 minutes. This release provides many new features, including the ability to change functions dynamically, customize Talk Groups, rooms and repeaters, either from the server or the client, and dynamically switch between DMR networks such as Brandmeister, TGIF, QRM etc.
