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 Weiser and parts north.   For more information please email Kelly @


Please join us for the MVARC State of Idaho Digital Fusion Net (SIDFN) every (except holidays) Thursday evening at 1845 Mountain Time.  Use the information above to gain access to our system. SIDFN is a friendly place for you to check in with your FUSION radio.  We try to answer any questions you have about FUSION operation and protocol.  You can also announce any ham radio gear you have for sale or wanted.  We also have a question of the week.  Any licensed ham is welcome to check in to the SIDFN.
