Repeater Committee Announcement

The OVARC repeater system will be upgrading to the robust Digital Fusion System on July 1st of this year. Fusion has many advantages including simplicity of setting up and operation. There are also many links, called Rooms, that can be linked on schedule for many different nets. These rooms can also be segmented on our repeaters for special events and emergencies. Fusion is now fully functional on Keystone, Tucson Mountain, Camino and Saddlebrooke. 


NOTE: Analog operation will be discontinued on Keystone on July 1, 2020.
