Yaesu DR-1 Repeater On the Air!

We have been given an opportunity by Yaesu to test out their brand new DR-1 C4FM/FM Digital Repeater! The repeater is on the 444.825 + 123.0 located on Mt Davidson in the south end of Reno. The system will accept both analog and digital communications. Currently there are only two radios Yaesu manufactures that has the new C4FM Digital mode, the FT1DR HT and FTM-400DR Mobile Radio. But you dont need a digital radio to use the repeater. A big thank you goes out to Yaesu for allow us to be one of the first to test their new digital repeater along with Tom Taormina K5RC for putting in a good word to Yeasu for SNARS to test new system.
