In this episode we talk about the Yaesu System Fusion DR-2X repeater, the upcoming Solar Eclipse and more.
There is some interesting new features on the DR-2X repeater over the DR-1X that came out a couple years ago, but there is also something that it doesn’t have. Some of these features, I wish that we had on our club repeater, but those features are not enough for us to go out and buy this version.
There are a lot of special event stations that are going to be on the air around August 21st this year when the full solar eclipse occurs. This is the first time since 1918 that a full solar eclipse has gone from one side of the US to the other. I unfortunately am to far south to the see the full eclipse, but I should get about a 75% one here in the DFW area.
We also talk about some other stuff, but you are going to have to check out the show notes and listen to the episode to find out what that is.
