New 2-Meter Fusion Repeater tested

Keith (KN5G) has been putting together a new Fusion (C4FM) repeater. The repeater was purchased with club funds nearly two years ago. The club had planned to replace its current analog repeater with the new digital system. However, engineering issues with the new repeater delayed worked for sometime.

Now, Keith has the repeater on the air for experimental purposed and to test the range of the system and the effectiveness of the duplexes. The repeater is currently located west of Henderson, although Keith said he is considering relocating it in town for further testing.

The repeater can be access on 145.250 MHz with an offset of -0.6 MHz and a PL tone of 131.8. If can be used in both analog FM mode and digital C4FM (or Fusion) mode with a compatible radio.

(Yes, I know the photo in this post is of a 70cm repeater. It is actually a picture of NU5G's Fusion repeater.)
