Educating, Encouraging and Entertaining - Amateur Radio and BCARA
System Fusion Repeater is on the Air!
BCARA powered up the new146.700 MHz Yaesu System Fusion repeater on 7/25/15.
This terrific technology allows those that want to enjoy all the benefits of a digitial mode while maintaining analog capabilities. No need to buy a new technology radio to use the same repeater, unlike DSTAR and DMR systems.
If you don't hear anything on your FM radio, but see the signal strength meter active, then there is probably a digital mode QSO in progress. No problem! Watch for the repeater to drop out and just ID and join the conversation. The repeater and the tranceivers in the QSO will instantly change to FM.
