The Kansas City Room is the product of primarily two individuals.
Bill is our equipment guy. With years of Motorla experience he is our
go to guy for repeaters, duplexers, antennas and site installations.
Van is the computer and software guy. He makes sure equipment is
up to date with firmware and node stations are current on Wires-X
software. His repeater hosts the Kansas City Room and he also gives
presentations on Fusion and Wires-X.
We also have several individuals who deserve special credit. These hams volunteered to be node stations. They are:
Ted operates the node station for the Johnson County Radio Amateur Club repeater in Shawnee.
Dennis operates the node station for the Johnson County Radio Amateur Club repeater at Black & Veatch in Overland Park.
Van owns and operates the Olathe repeater. This is where the Kansas City Room resides and is connected directly to the internet.
All of our repeaters are genuine Yaesu DR2-X repeaters. We do not use third party repeaters with a digital card masquerading as Fusion. This allows our users to take complete advantage of the features in Wires-X and enjoy all the capabilities of their Yaesu radios.
