* Note:
For access use DCS-23.  This repeater (443.750) is used for accessing the MVARC Wires-X digital room on analog.  The analog signal gets converted from analog to digital so analog users can join us on Wires-X if they want to.  This is an AMS repeater, meaning that it can be accessed via Digital or Analog.  For the digital user, feel free to move the node to any Wires-X room that you desire.  Just remember to disconnect from the room when you are done.  Keep in mind that it is connected to MVARC via analog (Allstar/Echolink), which means that there could be interruptions in the system if someone is using it on digital and someone on MVARC comes through the system.  It would switch back and forth between digital and analog. 
Allstar and Echolink are welcome to connect to the MVARC Wires-X system.  Allstar access is node #549361.  EchoLink access is KB7SQS-R.  Access is also possible through YSF,
US MVARC 43210, also through FCS 003-013 MVARC-IDAHO.  However, FCS doesn't seem to work that well sometimes.




We encourage you to employ Wires-X and move the local MVARC Fusion repeaters to other rooms OUTSIDE our local area.  We do NOT recommend removing a local Fusion repeater from the MVARC system and moving it into another local room or node as this defeats the intent of the linked repeater system. 

As our system continues to grow to cover Idaho and beyond, we welcome anyone who wants to connect to our FUSION system either temporarily, occasionally or permanently.  Currently our FUSION system covers most all of southern Idaho from Idaho Falls and east, all the way across the southern part of Idaho through the Treasure Valley (Boise area) and to parts north.   For more information please email Kelly @
