Yaesu System Fusion – WIRES-X

“Yaesu System Fusion is the easiest to use digital voice system.”  –Bill AA6BD

DUE TO THE GLASS FIRE, the Castle Rock site is off the air.  We have permission to use K6CSR as an alternative Fusion repeater at 441.650 MHz where we will hold the weekly Thursday 7 PM Fusion net.  You can start Wires-X mode and enter a room.  We have permission to use W6VVR-ROOM #45292 as our meeting place.

For historical purposes:  Our repeater on Castle Rock at 441.375 MHz is a Yaesu DR-2X repeater that is set up as a WIRES-X Node.  On this repeater, we host a “room” SOCO-CA #62732.  Using WIRES-X, you can connect to this room or to any other WIRES-X room.  If you tune to this frequency and put your radio in DN (Digital Narrow) voice mode, you can participate in the currently active room and/or with others who also tune to this frequency.

To learn more about Yaesu System Fusion and its WIRES-X capability, see this presentation from the club meeting on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

When using analog FM, make sure to set your radio to CTCSS 88.5 in order to avoid Fusion digital noise on your rig!

You are welcome to change the repeater WIRES-X Room connection to another room.  Please use this protocol:

  • “Is the W6SON repeater busy? This is (your callsign)
  • Wait a few seconds to identify whether or not the repeater is busy
  • “This is (your callsign) accessing room (room).”
