Over the weekend, I had migrated my WiRES-X node over to FTM-400DR in all-digital-only-node mode. The goal is to create a WiRES-X Digital-ONLY-Node that will link all the Digital Nodes together. This is an “Experimental” project and will be sniff testing to see how this performs and if there’s really a need for such a linking effort. Apparently, Yaesu is going to be announcing a new release of their WiRES-X software (maybe a firmware also) that will enable “Digital Only” modes using any digital enabled TRx. This experiment however, is performed using the currently published WiRES-X software V188.8.131.52.
The WiRES-X room can be found under Room #21191 and named, “—-/D-NODES-USA/“. The below are a few pictures and a YouTube video talking about this effort in a bit more detail.
