Upcoming Yaesu System Fusion Training Sessions

CARS will be doing a basic System Fusion overview training session at the SIERA Amateur Radio Club meeting, MAY 5th in Gardnerville NV

We have also partnered with the Tahoe Amateur Radio Association (TARA) to host a System Fusion repeater for communal usage overlooking Lake Tahoe, Douglas County, Dayton, and most of Carson City at almost 10,000 ft!  


The 442.225 Eagle Ridge repeater is currently linked to 442.300 in analog, FCS 003 room 21 (for use with the DV-4 / Openspot hotspots) and Wires-X digital! We have removed the linking from Ophir 444.375 for now until we can manage to get it linked up for Reno coverage too.


CARS DV4 room! 

CARS has been given its own room on YSF refelctor 3!  Find us on refelctor 3 room 21 too connect to us via the DV4 platform.
