WiresX Is Up And Running !!!

Well after talking about for a year or more, we finally got the SEKARC UHF repeater connected to WiresX. The setup is an FTM-100 and HRI-200 setup as a node connected to the clubs UHF repeater at 442.675. The remote node station is setup at the office of KØVLL in Pittsburg.

The 442.675 repeater will still fully function like it did before for those that do not have a WiresX radio. FM functions as it did before unless there is Fusion traffic. It took a few days to get the bugs worked out but I believe the setup bugs have been exterminated and we will be on the lookout for new infestations. If you experience issues please send an email to the group or to the club direct email which is

If you are traveling and can get into a WiresX repeater or Node you can connect to use here by connecting to the room # 46341 or the room name SE-KANSAS. If in the Joplin area you can try the WiresX node on 144.910 operated by Brian KBØDXS. Please get in there and try it out! Yesterday I spoke with a ham that used to check in to our nets every week Casey Cook KDØFRL who now lives in Virginia. He said to be sure and say hi to Big Larry NØMST and like magic he showed up at the coffee today!

There are some good deals out there right now especially the Fusion dual band HT the FT-70d is only $125 or so. The FT-991 will do it also. I have an HT the FT1D and a FTM-400 which is back ordered darn it! I attached below some links for help with WiresX so have fun and let us know if we can help!
