November club meeting and a new repeater

Hello All!

It's nearly club meeting time again. This month's meeting will be held on Tuesday November 17 at 7 PM at the Yarmouth EMO building (behind the fire hall on Pleasant St). As always, all members are encouraged to attend. We also welcome non-members and those folks interested in amateur radio.

I would also like to let everyone know that our brand new Yaesu System Fusion (C4FM) is up and running on VE1YAR UHF (444.700+). Currently it is running in mixed mode so that you can use it using digital as well as in analogue mode. There are still a few tweaks left to make but for the most part, the installation is complete. We will also be putting in a second C4FM repeater on VHF at some point in the future.

It went live on Saturday November 14 2015 and it appears that this is the first System Fusion repeater in the Maritimes. Thanks to VE1IC, VE1RB, and VE1UT for getting it up and running.
