The new Yaesu System Fusion Repeater in Hauppauge continues to receive high marks for it's new capabilities. The addition of the new digital repeater opens up a world of new capabilities for the club. Now hams can access the Fusion's multitude of interest specific rooms. Working through WIRES-X the WR2ABA repeater makes it easier than ever to connect with hams across the globe. Just one more reason for LARC members to try System Fusion ASAP!
The new 70cm (448.425/114.8) repeater brings LARC to those hams with only 440 transceivers. The 440 machine is linked with .210, so no one will miss out on any of the ham action.
Take some time and give the repeaters a try!
Follow along as Steve, N2PQJ, makes working FT8 easy!
Don't forget to put your call sign and "2021 LARC Dues" on the check. Otherwise it makes it difficult for the bookkeeping crew... Of course, the better, easier way is to use PayPal!
