Moncton Fusion Repeater - VE9MFR
The Fusion Repeater system is running in “analog/digital” mode, which means those who have an analog transceiver and/or a Yaesu Fusion transceiver can both enjoy the system.
146.625MHz – offset
Analog/digital mode enable (both digital and FM analog operation possible)
CTCSS 103.5Hz (FM Analog Operation) No tone needed for digital
WIRES-X Moncton Node ID 50871 (Repeater external link code, to link from another fusion repeater to VE9MFR)
WIRES-X Moncton Room ID 60871 (MAARC chat room)
If you connect to another node/room, the VE9MFR machine will drop the unused connection after 10 minutes.
Recommended Repeater Operating Procedures
Normal repeater protocol is in place while using VE9MFR.
Identify yourself before opening a room or node and when you are done with the link.
Use # then the node or chat room id (ie: #50207) to link to Amherst
Use * to disconnect
Leave long gaps between transmissions. Since the communications flow takes place over the Internet (where there may be lag/delay), it’s important to “leave room” for other stations that may want to join the conversation.
After you press your PTT, take a breath and then start speaking. A slight delay after PTT is required to overcome Internet lag/delay times. If you PTT and speak without a slight delay, the first portion of your speech will NOT be heard at the destination.
Fusion Webinar presented by Yaesu
On October 26th, Yaesu held a webinar on Fusion for MAARC. John Kruk – N9UPC, Yaesu's National Sales Manager, covered Fusion radios and infrastructure. The webinar lasted just short of one hour. A recording is available if you'd like to watch or re-watch the webinar.
