How this affects you

  • No immediate radio upgrade is required. You can continue to use your existing radios.
  • Upgrade to a System Fusion II radio is strongly recommended to take advantage of improved system performance and capabilities once the new repeaters are operational.
  • Study the technology. There is a lot to it and what can be done with it for those who take the time to understand it and utilize it to its full potential.
  • Remember your amateur radio license is more than a license to operate, it is a license to learn.
