Fusion Help


How do I set up a new Fusion radio? What’s Group Mode and how do I use it? Where do I figure out what firmware version I have? Okay, I just have questions about Fusion!

Well, this is the spot. This page contains links to documents written by Hams who were trying to do what you want to do and figured it out. (And wrote it down.) Check back frequently as we will be making constant additions to this resource.
