First 2 Digital Repeaters Ordered
Today, Saturday February 20, Steve KG7GYM placed the order for the first 2 digital repeaters from Yaesu as they are offering a special opportunity to purchase a Production DR-1X repeater at a substantially discounted price of $500.00 per unit until March 31, 2015
At this point in time, we are still collecting contributions towards the purchase of a digital unit for the 446.300 - PL 100 repeater. At this point in time we are 1/4 of the way to being able to order the 3rd repeater. With the installation of these new repeaters, our club will have full digital/analog on all of the 2 meter and 70 cm club frequencies. Unfortunately Yaesu does not offer a 220 Mhz repeater system. That system, when operational later this year, will be analog only.
The offer from Yaesu will expire on March 31, 2015.
