The Appleton 442.175 Repeater is now a Yaesu System Fusion Repeater. It is capable of both digital and analog FM with automatic mode switching. If you transmit analog FM it will repeat analog FM. If you transmit C4FM FDMA (similar to APCO 25 phase one) it repeats the same. This repeater is not compatible with DSTAR or P-25 phase two radios.
The system is open for general ham use and is not affiliated with the FCARC. Echolink is still available.
The DR-1 repeater will be evaluated during the next several months. Please send your questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
