As a Yaesu fan, I really like this and I am pretty sure many of you will also. One of these days maybe we can get Pittsburg on the map again with the latest technology. I am sure it comes at a nice price so thinking long term, this would be a great option!
But for now, THANKS to the PRO group for the repeater they have in place! Check this video out that goes over the features of the new Yaseu product and it even includes a couple of Joplin hams that we all have heard on the repeaters many times. I believe that the .35 repeater in Joplin is the new one they are speaking of.
