C4FM & Fusion & WIRES-X

Do you have a Yaesu radio that supports C4FM Digital Mode communication?

Did you know we have a local network of repeaters available to all HAMs, linked together in C4FM Digital Mode?

 

If you have a C4FM capable Yaesu radio, you’re in luck!  You should know that there is a local network of Yaesu System Fusion repeaters that are linked together through Wires-X in C4FM digital mode.  Our ARTS Club repeater on 147.180 is part of this network. 

 

Note that these repeaters operate as standalone repeaters when using FM analog but they are linked together when using C4FM digital communication.  That means if you transmit through one of these repeaters in digital mode your transmission is repeated on all of the repeaters.  Therefore, you are able to communicate with any other digital mode station using any of these repeaters, or any other station in the WIRES-X Room named “CQ-Louisville” (WIRES-X Room 21014). 

 

WIRES (Wide-coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) is an Internet communication system which expands the range of amateur radio communication.  Furthermore, your Yaesu digital C4FM station can communicate with other amateur stations all over the world using these repeaters.  For more information about how to do that contact Bill (KC4ZMZ) or Dana (KE4JVM) on this repeater network or at an ARTS Club meeting.
