Welcome to East Tennessee, where terrain issues are a way of life in radio communications. With the mountainous terrain, hills, valleys and roads where they followed a drunken herd of goats before paving them..lol. Just when you think you have it figured out….
The linking project has taken a slight detour from it’s original plan.
The Fusion NET System development has changed the parameters of how we are going to accomplish the linking.
The 444.750 West repeater is not slated to migrate to System Fusion. Therefore, the 444.750 machine will be setup via a Echolink node for those users who wish to have VoIP access.
The existing link radio and antenna setup at the 443.100 repeater location will remain to accomplish this.
The 443.100 East System Fusion repeater will also be setup on a Echolink node, but initially in analog only mode through the system. Users will have access to our linked Fusion NET system until a C4FM radio can be interfaced.
Thank you for your patience.
The West link radio, a Kenwood TK-860HG, modified and tuned for the west link.
