Updates and Information

Chris, K9EQ, will be presenting “Why Digital” to the Palomar ARC on Wednesday July 5th at 7:00 PM Pacific. You can watch the presentation on the Palomar ARC website. Abstract:

So why use digital at all? Because it’s different and new or because it offers capabilities that were not possible with analog FM? So, “Why Digital?”

Chris will give an overview of Yaesu System Fusion, which is the “fusion” of FM and digital. He’ll discuss Fusion’s performance (better than FM) and many things it allows a Ham to do. Examples will be given of how it can be used while hiking or adventuring with others, communications for special events and emergency responses, networking of repeaters and stations and why its is more reliable and robust, sending messages, taking pictures. And having more fun!

The WXScheduler program has been updated. See This Post.
