Digital Communications Guide for Amateur Radio

Do you need a Fusion Radio to use our club repeaters?  NO! We invite you to check out the Yaesu Website and choose a Retail outlet of your choice for a C4FM capable radio! The FT2R radios are now available. This system is fully compatible with all Yaesu Fusion Digital Radios as well as Analog Wide FM conventional radios that have PL tone capability. Don't let this fool you! This is a fully automated Analog/Digital auto switching system!  At this time the system is setup to receive and send Analog & C4FM Digital. UHF is Auto/Auto. VHF is set to Auto input/FM Output only so everyone can hear what is being said and can experience what a digital radio sounds like over an FM-wide receiver after conversion at the repeater site.  

The WIRES-X boxes are installed and working!

How do use it?

On your radio DTMF pad or memory....press 
'#+5-digit node or room number' 
and will make a call and link to another repeater or room.

'*' will disconnect the link.

Thank you to Star~NET Online Systems for providing us with two free IP addresses to access the internet!
