    Now for the second big announcement to start the New Year with!

    Barsley based amateur radio retailer LAMCO have announced on Facebook that they are sponsoring the installation of a Yaesu DR-1 xe Digital Fusion Repeater that will be used to replace the PRF10 currently in use by GB3HS at high Hunsley.

    This will NOT affect current users of the GB3HS analogue service and the repeater will perform much as it does now but it will allow those users with Yaesu Fusion equipment to use a digital repeater. It will also support cross mode contacts.

    There will not be an Internet connection as that functionality is still in development.

    The Group will continue to support D-Star on GB7HU and no changes are planned for that service.

    The announcement from LAMCO is reproduced below:

    We are very proud to announce that we are sponsoring the supply of a brand new Yaesu System Fusion Repeater to The EAST Yorkshire Repeater Group which will eventually be operating on the Hull GB3HS on 145.650MHz.

    The System Fusion Repeater will be active in early 2015 in time for the new Yaesu FT-991 and the Yaesu FT-2DR hand set....

      I'm looking forward to seeing just how well this system works with a mix of analogue and digital. It was a trick that Icom missed on their DSTAR repeaters and I'm sure had they allowed dual mode functionality like this it would have been far more popular.

      Congratulations on the site move chaps.

      Sounds great, not sure what will happen when an Internet Gateway is added will network traffic push Analogue FM back in to the shadows ??
      Some Dstar Repeater operators opted to not use dual mode so as to favour Digital and Gateway traffic!
      Any Thoughts..
