On Monday the 13th June, a group of local radio amateurs will be launching the Staffs Fusion Group to promote Fusion and Wires-X in the area.
Three RF gateways will be linked to a Wires-X room, a little like CQ-UK or North West Fusion Group (NWFG) but for local amateur stations.
Stations can connect via Internet using the Wires-X software and a suitable Yaesu transceiver. Or via RF using one of the four linked gateways.
The linked gateways are:
- MB6IKS on 431.125 MHz. Located near Heath Hayes.
- MB6IML on 431.100 MHz. Located near Matlock.
- MB6RU on 144.850 MHz. Located near Hednesford.
- MB6SR on 144.8125 MHz. Located near Yarnfield.
These gateways will be connected to the Staffs Fusion Group Wires-X room. This is room number 41405.
It is hoped to create a place where Fusion and FM users can meet and learn more this newish mode.
