TMRA Yaesu Fusion Information
The club's Yaesu Fusion repeater is on the air. The frequency of 442.850+ will be used. You may use this
in FM or DV mode. Please report any issues to the Tech Committee. Also if you have an FM analog only radio
and do not wish to hear the digital signal, please change your radio to only listen for FM Tone Squelched audio
on a tone of 103.5. Most radios call this RX T-SQL.
The YAESU DR-1 is a digital/conventional FM dual mode repeater that covers the VHF and UHF amateur
radio bands. It was developed for use with System Fusion. By replacing our conventional FM repeater
with the DR-1 will provide continued use of conventional FM communication while integrating
the use of digital communication functions through its unique AMS capability.
Existing peripheral devices such as the duplexer and amplifier, etc., can continue to be used as-is.
The system support the following Modulation Modes: Conventional FM, 12.5 kHz C4FM Digital (V/D Mode, VFR Mode, DFR Mode)
AMS (Automatic Mode Select) function automatically recognizes the signal as C4FM digital or
conventional FM, and then the DR-1 repeater retransmits the signal using the preset communications mode.
System Fusion is not compatible with the D-STAR GMSK digital format.
The true benefit of the system to the club is it's ability to replace the current old equipment, while giving hams the
benefit of using existing analog technology, and also supporting newer digital formats. All users can co-exist on the same system.
