GB3WW and Fusion on the West Wales repeater what will the group do to reduce interference? Switch off third-party FM users?

The Math. 

If the Loyal FM members over the last 40 years have been eradicated and there is 40 Fusion operators on the repeater and 50% are prepared to pay with being kind, the site fees and overheads as low as £1000 then the smoke room as our friends over the pond call it will come to £50 each. Please tell us more about the repeater in the comments below or publish your change for members old and new to know your full intentions as the GB3WW committee.

Questions about the C4FM System

So I’m still analog and have no plans to buy a new radio,  how will this affect my use of the System Fusion Repeaters?

Normal FM users will be able to co-exist with new digital radio users. The Yaesu System Fusion DR-1X repeater will automatically select the proper incoming mode and pass normal analog traffic or the new digital traffic automatically.

Part of the test is the Fusion’s ability to coexist with FM analog signals. FM users; just place your radio into full encode/decode to mask out any digital conversations. Please watch your busy light and hit your monitor button before transmitting. A CARRIER FOR INTERFERENCE IS WORSE WITH FUSION. 

Digital users are required to run their rigs in AMS (auto mode select) mode. That way an analog user can jump in and say ‘break’ in-between digi transmissions. In this example, the analog FM user key’s up the DR-1X repeater and this will normally force the DR-X repeater and other users listening in the AMS mode back over to regular analog FM.  Read more here
