Yes, in the title you get everything. All in a line.
Before any discussion, I have to give credits:
– Marco – CSY&Son for the provisioning of the repeater (http://www.csytelecomunicazioni.com/) ;
– Max ON4GXY aka IW0GXY for being the best partner you can get if you want to do experiments and troubleshooting.
Seriously, I just received a new repeater, Yaesu Fusion DR-1x and the Internet connector HRI-200.
It is sharing the frequencies with the D-Star Repeater and I have to admit Yaesu did a good job with it.
In fact the repeater is extremely easy to install and operate, only one small concern:
Why there is no power supply for the European version? The US and the JP version are including the power supply, the EU version not… Why Yaesu???
Anyway, the repeater is also connected to the Wires-X Node and Room system of Yaesu, which are Node 17165 and Room 27165 for the repeater.
The configuration is “cross” which basically means RX AUTO, and TX FM FIX, which is the only configuration working with the HRI-200 in order to have it connected to the Wires-X Network.
Everybody is expecting a new firmware to be released soon (they said January but we are mid of February and there is no firmware at the horizon yet).
Feel free to test it as you like and ask for any kind of mod you like.
P.S.: Soon I will post all the steps to configure the DR-1X to the HRI-200 and make it working on Wires-X.
