After long and hard consideration, the 443.100 K4ETN/East repeater will migrate to Yeasu System Fusion digital voice over the next few months.
This upgrade will operate in AMS (Automatic Selection Mode) which will still allow the use of analog conventional signals to be repeated, and switch to C4FM digital voice and FDMA data transfer when a digital signal is heard.
System Fusion is also compatible with Wires X VoIP technology allowing for internet linking, or can be linked via Allstar protocol.
For those who wish to invest in this technology, the new FTM100-DR Yeasu is in the same price tier as the conventional FT-7900 series radio. Making the transition very affordable. Users will still have conventional analog voice and able to use their favorite analog repeaters.
More information forthcoming as the project progresses.
