Our first C4FM Fusion net was held, we first went analog to talk about the Fusion system to allow questions from operators and replies from Fusion experienced users.

The net went without hitch and we even swapped out over to C4FM to test and setup equipment.  With which all tests and communications went well.

We shall be running this net every Tuesday at 9.00pm local time, and your net control operator is Spence and from time to time could be many other operators.

Please do join us, you do not have to have a System Fusion radio to join in with the net.  If you do not have a System Fusion radio, please ask questions if you are interested or just hang out and listen.

If you want to know what radios  that you can use on System Fusion, please take a look at our repeater page for more information.

Josh (KC8TAI) and Myself (KD8YNY) have been working on APRS coverage for the Morgantown and surrounding areas.  Along with the help of Steven (N8URE), we are starting to form some good coverage from Bruceton Mills and Morgantown.

We are hoping for more operators in the area to at least get more RX/iGates up on the air.  We are also in plans for APRS back up at the repeater site for more coverage of PA and more of the surrounding areas.
