Exclusive – Yaesu’s upcoming DR2 repeater

ICQ Amateur/Ham Radio Podcast’s Martin Butler (M1MRB/W9ICQ) and Chris Howard (M0TCH/N4TCH) can exclusively reveal information in relation to Yaesu’s upcoming DR2 Repeater after visiting the Ham Radio 2017 event at Friedrichshafen, Germany

This new model includes support for these new key features: –

IMRS (Internet-linked Multi-Site Repeater) allows multiple DR2 repeaters connect to over the Internet.

Digital Group ID, which is similar to CTCSS tones used on analogue FM transmissions and is a way of separating users into up to 99 talk groups, using either the new FT-70 radio or some of the other C4FM radios with an upcoming firmware upgrade.

Digital Personal ID, which is a selective calling system to allows a user to call another user based on their call sign. Remote control, through the inbuilt second receiver.

An important point to note however is that the DR2 does not support Wires-X, so is not a replacement or upgrade for the DR1 repeater.
The DR1 will continue to be produced for those wishing to grow their Wires-X network.

A full interview with Yaesu will appear in the next episode of the ICQ Amateur/Ham Radio Podcast – Episode 242 to be released on Sunday 23rd July 2017. This exclusive interview coincides with the shows 9th Birthday.
