YAESU DR-1X 144/430 Dual Band C4FM/FM Digital Repeater

Yaesu will be discontinuing the DR-1X repeater December 8th, 2017 at 12:00pm PST (Pacific Standard Time). Any email applications received after that time will not be processed and any US Mail applications postmarked after December 8th, 2017 will not be accepted. Yaesu will still continue to provide technical support and service of the DR-1X.

The YAESU DR-1X is a digital/conventional FM dual mode repeater that covers the VHF and UHF amateur radio bands. It was developed for use with System Fusion. Replacing your conventional FM repeater with the DR-1 will provide continued use of conventional FM communication while integrating the use of digital communication functions through its unique AMS capability.

Easy Migration

The repeater controller, receiver and transmitter are all packaged into a 19” standard cabinet rack mount panel unit for simple replacement of an existing repeater*. Existing peripheral devices such as the duplexer and amplifier, etc., can continue to be used as-is.

*Please see the DR-1 Brochure and Manual for installation examples of Repeater Set-Up replacing existing Analog FM Repeater
