FARS’ UHF repeater VE6FIL has been upgraded with new hardware, and now includes the Wires-X capability locally.
The repeater remains in C4FM (Fusion) mode exclusively.
Users are able to connect the repeater to various rooms and other Wires-X nodes using the Wires-X key on their radios. These connections time out after 1 hour if there is no local RF traffic.
FARS wishes to thank Greg and the team at GPS Central for the donation of the Wires-X HRI-200 interface that made this part of the project possible. We want to further acknowledge Steven, VA6DWF, who has provided Wires-X connectivity on this repeater in the past.
