C4FM - System Fusion coming to the 146.955 Repeater, Summer 2024

BARC will install a DR-2X System Fusion repeater at the Dennis 146.955 site.  This will allow users more options and modes of operation. 

You may recall BARC tried this before with a DR-1X and ran into ishues with interfacing our required controller.  Yaesu made hardware and software changes to the DR-2X that we anticipate will allow for a more unified system integration.

Honda EU2000i Conversion to Propane (only)

About one year into owning my EU2000, it started experiencing carburetor problems due to the ethanol fuel and junk clogging the EXTREMELY small passages in the carberator. 

This is a dedicated Propane unit (will NOT run on gasoline).  All original Gasoline parts were removed.
