Actually, after more than 10 years on the market, D-STAR has only about 
28,000 registered users worldwide.  There are fewer than 2000 active users, 
worldwide, daily.  Many people are wondering why Icom keeps pouring money 
into something which is clearly unsustainable in the long run.

There are very good reasons why no other amateur radio manufacturer will 
touch it.
