A message from John Kruk, Yaesu USA:
After the webinar last week many have asked about how we can start to promote and use 145.5625 Mhz to make contacts on the frequency. So….what are you doing next Saturday?
Next weekend, Saturday April 25th, all day let us use 145.5625 Mhz and make/log contacts. Use simplex or WiRES-X but make sure that it is on 145.5625 Mhz (in this case repeaters would be out for usage). If you use Group Monitor (GM) make sure to use DG-ID 00.
Now to make it fun let us talk about how we can confirm exchanges with each other (and this is really good practice for DP-ID registraiton). Practice the exchange by making contact with others and exchanging your DP-ID with their DP-ID and mark the time.
Do not underestimate the distance that simplex can reach as well as a digital signal on simplex. Let us work to establish this as the Fusion frequency.
