New 94 Yaesu Fusion Repeater for PRO

As you may have heard, the Pittsburg Repeater Organization or "PRO" group replaced the 94 repeater with a new Yaesu System Fusion repeater. They still have some testing and possible adjustments to be made on the receive side as Tyler believes that the RX is not as good as it should be based on initial testing and monitoring It seems to be working well at this time.

One change from before is that they activated the PL Tone of 91.5 so you may have to change some of your memories to add the tone. If you are like me, about half of my radios already had it set up and some did not. Tyler mentioned that if the tone is an issue with folks then let us know and they will review the tone activation.

Tyler also sent over some photos from the install day out at the site and gave permission to post them here. It is very interesting finally get to see the site and see the equipment that we all talk on often. Thanks again to the PRO group for getting this back on the air and for the upgraded technology! I have a FT1D with the digital modes so when you hear KAØEGE I will most likely be transmitting on 1w in digital mode on my Yaesu FT1D. Tyler reported the difference in my TX quality was night and day with only 1w. Barely audible on regular FM from inside my house with rubber duck antenna but when I switched it over to Digital VW mode, clear as a bell!

The repeater is setup for auto on receive ( it will receive Yaesu digital and analog FM automatically ) but it is set for FM on TX so all listeners will hear it! Let us know if you have or hear of any issues and we can pass this on to Tyler and the PRO group!
