As of 4-4-2018, the K9IU VHF repeater on 147.180 is now dual-mode capable with both Analog FM and Yaesu System Fusion active. The repeater is not yet linked to Wires-X (future plans) but IS capable of digital modes. Come on by and experience the extended coverage with Yaesu System Fusion.
The repeater is in auto-mode select. The repeater will automatically select the repeat mode based on input signal. FM signals will be repeated in traditional FM mode. Digital signals will be repeated in Digital mode.
For those without a system fusion radio yet, it is advised to set both the transmit and receive CTCSS tone to 136.5 – this will allow your receiver to remain tone-squelched (silent) when digital users are on the repeater. The sound of the digital signal is high pitched squealing… not at all something you’ll want to listen to !
