Our January program will be Monday January 15th at 7:30pm featuring Yaesu corporate representatives visiting our club for the first time to present a program on Yaesu System Fusion, the Yaesu sponsored digital mode. TARC has supported the mode by having a DRX-1 repeater in Fusion mode at 444.750, as well as a Fusion Node (N4TP-ND at 147.570) that can be used for linking to the Fusion system making possible QSOs around the world possible through the Fusion system. This will great program and those in attendance will get Free Pizza and drinks prior to the presentation. Club members throughout the entire WCF are invited.
