This system comes with two new digital radios, an FTM-400D and an FT1D for use by the club members.
If you don't have a digital radio yet, don't worry, System Fusion repeater should switch it self out of digital mode and back to the usual FM analog mode so you can continue to use the radio you already have. When it hears a digital radio it switches back to a digital repeeater. The analog output has an 88.5 pl tone so analog listeners can set their receive squelch so they will not have to listen to the digital noise.
Due to confusion over what this repeater will or will not do refer to the repeater manual pages 19 and 20 at Repeater Manual
The new and improved System Fusion DR-1X model is here and is being tested by the club.
The Andy Club is not the only area club with a System Fusion repeater.

Andy Club Meeting:
Next Andy Club Meeting will be Wednesday November 5, 2014 at 7 p.m. at
the Potvin Room of the St. Marys' Medical Associates Building 99 Campus
Avenue Lewiston Me. On the agenda October 18th SET discussion
how it went.
The D-star repeater is on the air at 443.3 Mhz, we expect
will be a report on the latest tweeks to the system and getting it a
new antenna. Our application for the upgrade to the
DR-1X repeater was APPROVED, decisions will have to be made
its future, and where its permanent home should be and should we leave
the present DR-1 repeater where it is? Also we may decide if we would
like to take over the Poland Spring repeater site and maybe its
equipment on 145.315 Mhz. Also to decide, how to use the 60 foot
tall tower that Norm L'Heureux w1scm donated to the club. Please attend
the meeting, there is a lot to talk about.
