Fusion C4FM digital voice repeater on the air in Syracuse N.Y.

Image result for yaesu system fusion picturesThe first Digital Voice Amateur Radio repeater is on the air in Syracuse.  This joint venture between KD2SL and KC2VER is unique on two counts: 1) It is the first digital amateur repeater on the air in Syracuse and Onondaga County; 2) It is the only repeater system we know of in the country to link an analog repeater with a System Fusion digital repeater, for full-time cross-mode operation in the same band, at the same site, on the same antennas. Both of these coordinated repeaters are open to all Hams.

The KC2VER repeater is on 145.31 (-) no PL tone, and is set up for full time C4FM digital operation. The KD2SL analog repeater is on 146.67 (-) 103.5 PL, and is linked full-time with KC2VER’s digital repeater.  Some final tuning and adjustments will be taking place over the next several weeks.

If you have a System Fusion equipped radio, jump over to the 145.31 repeater and give it a try. If you don’t, take a listen on the 146.67 to get an idea of what C4FM digital voice sounds like.

Let us know what you think, both Kevin ( and I ( would be interested in your thoughts, questions and comments on this new set up. (...or leave us a comment below)

Also note that there are several more C4FM Sytem Fusion repeaters coming to CNY and the upstate area in the next few months. Stay tuned to for more System Fusion updates.
