NEVADA DEM Adds Fusion to State Command center

The Nevada Department of Emergency Management (DEM) in Carson City has decided to add fusion to the State communications center! They are buying the repeater, HRI-200 box, and antenna so it may be linked into the NEVADA room 21676. This will also supplement a deficit of coverage for Carson City as it is shadowed from both Tahoe and Ophir. Special thanks to Robert KI7OXS for making this happen.

This system will proudly carry the CARS W7DEM callsign on the repeater and on Wires-X

Upcoming events:

Wednesday nights at 7pm PST
CVRC social net on all CARS Digital repaters and Wires-X 21676 NEVADA ROOM
FCS-003 Room.21
