Repeater System Update 5/16/2017

Hi everyone its been a while... I was able to get up to Eagle Ridge and repair the 2m amp on 147.345 last weekend,and wire the entire cab for 12V DC thanks to the fantastic donation of the Astron 50A BB supply from Lyon County ARES/Search and Rescue. Very soon I will make a trek back up there and add 2 100Ah batteries so well never be off the air unless the generator at the site fails. The repeaters should last about 3-4 hours on transmit, days in standby.

Hope everyone is well and is still excited about Fusion! Yaesu just released a new dual band portable FT70DR and a new UHF mobile! FTM-3207DR that should be available sometime in the fall of 2017

Cheers and stay Safe! 

Hello RENO! A New YAESU Digital repeater is online!


WiresX room 21676 is online now as is the analog link to 442.125
When windy the connection is somewhat unstable, we will work through this as the season moves forward.



K5BLS installed another Yaesu System Fusion repeater on 444.375Mhz 123.0 Pl and C4FM Yaesu Fusion!
The new repeater overlooks Washoe valley, Reno/Sparks, the north Reno Valleys and some parts of Carson and Douglas counties! This system will eventually be linked digitaly to Wires-X Nevada room 21676 and tied in with the 442.225 repeater on Eage Ridge providing coverage for Western Lyon and Churchill counties.
Thanks to John KD7NHC- Southern Lyon county is linked in digital to Eagle on the 440.050 PL 94.8 in Smith Valley via the DV4 Mini, node 3 room 21 for CARS Nevada. Please check the new systems out and give us your feed back or questions! We are trying to provide access for everyone to have fun! We look forward to hearing you and being part of the group!
