The system first took off in 2006 when we acquired a first generation 1.2 GHz and controller combination. In 2007, we bought the 2M and 70CM modules. The 440MHz unit was first installed and in the summer of 2008, the gateway was installed. In early 2010, our first generation 1.2GHz developed a firmware glitch and would not us let install the 2M module. Due to this problem and in contact with ICOM, there was no recovery for the problem.
In 2011, we purchased a 2nd generation controller, 1.2 GHz Data and voice module. With the new purchase, we were able to finally install the 2M module.
The KC9LKZ is a fully functional system with a gateway. We hope that you enjoy the system and join in on the various D-STAR nets that take place.
On March 16, 2014, the Milwaukee Area Digital Operators Group (MADOG) and the Milwaukee Radio Amateurs’ Club (MRAC) partnered together to demo the Yaesu “System Fusion” repeater.
