Fusion C4FM

 

In 2013 is Yaesu gekomen met een systeem dat FUSION heet.
 

De modulatietechniek is C4FM.
De bandbreedte is 12,5 Kc (Narrow FM) en de baudrate 9k6 (4800 baud data met twee bits per symbool).
Fusion maakt gebruik van zelfde AMBE-chip die ook DMR gebruikt.
Net als bij DStar kan er ook data verzonden worden (de ervaring leert dat bij Dstar van deze mogelijkheid niet of nauwelijks gebruik wordt gemaakt door zendamateurs).

 

Een erg leuke, gezellige en leerzame eerste Yaesu System Fusion ronde gehad.

Er waren veel deelnemers aan dit relatief nieuwe onderdeel van onze hobby, 15 personen/nodes (hotspots).
En we hadden elkaar genoeg te vertellen tussen 20:30 en 23:00 uur

Tijdens de ronde is o.a. afgesproken dat de YSF-ronde voortaan gehouden zal worden op zondagavond.

Het verslag zal via een mailinglist worden verstuurd aan de deelnemers.

Information about nodes and rooms is exchanged via C4FM Digital signaling. Thanks to automatic reconnection to the previous contact, all you need to do is press PTT and start talking. Easily search for new nodes and rooms, and initiate communication promptly when you find an ID that captures your interest.

Activity Monitor Function

Currently active nodes and rooms can be searched in real time, and viewed on the display of your transceiver. The display list is sorted according to the number of stations currently connected to the room, in other words by popularity. This lets you quickly find other active stations to communicate with. Node owners can freely create a room ID using letters and numbers. The ID works a bit like the name of a person. Easy to understand, meaningful names, unique names, memorable names… all are possible and can be used in a targeted search. A history of previous nodes and rooms, and a memory function with five categories makes it a snap to find and connect with a particular ID.

News Station Function

News bulletins (messages, images, voice memos) can be freely uploaded to nodes and rooms. Other users can download the saved news information. For example, sharing traffic information or other local news, or sending a snapshot of a meeting place to fellow operators, as well as a myriad of other uses are possible. It does not matter whether someone is nearby or in a country far away. WIRES-X offers a way to overcome barriers of distance, time, or even language. Welcome to a world of previously unheard-of possibilities for connecting and communicating by way of Amateur Radio and the internet.

Preset Search Function

Search and connect to local node stations with a simple button touch. The system will automatically obtain node station information and setup the required frequency and digital code parameters. Wherever there is a WIRES-X local node station that is reachable by Amateur radio, complicated connection operation steps are no longer necessary.

System Fusion werd eind 2013 door Yaesu aangekondigd tijdens de TAPR-conferentie. Dennis (K7BV) gaf een presentatie aan het aanwezige publiek waarbij het nieuwe protocol aangekondigd werd. In deze video geeft Dennis uitleg over het protocol, de apparatuur en de voordelen die System Fusion moet bieden vergeleken met andere digitale systemen. De presentatie duurt circa 30 minuten.

 Mixed mode en backwards compatible met FM

Onze zuiderburen hebben al enkele System Fusion repeaters draaien. Hier draaien inmiddels een 11-tal repeaters. Op de websitedigitalvoice.be van Patrick (ON4PN) staan al meerdere artikelen over het systeem. System Fusion apparatuur is enkel bij Yaesu verkrijgbaar. Een van de goede eigenschappen van het System Fusion systeem is dat repeaters in mixed mode kunnen draaien. Naast digitale spraak wordt ook gewone FM ondersteund. Bestaande repeaters kunnen dus eenvoudig vervangen worden, waarbij gebruikers (nog) niet verplicht worden over te stappen en nieuwe apparatuur te kopen.

GPS, data en spraak
Het DMR en D-star systeem bieden ondersteuning voor data, waarbij een van de bekendste applicaties GPS is, waarbij de positie van de zender doorgezonden wordt op het netwerk, die ervoor zorgt dat de positie op aprs.fi verschijnt. Ook System Fusion biedt deze functionaliteit. Er is met het ontwerpen van het protocol en apparatuur rekening gehouden met data. Veel zendontvangers hebben de beschikking over een (optionele) bluetooth adapter. Data zoals foto’s kunnen onderling verzonden worden met een snelheid van 9600 bps. Yaesu biedt zelfs microfoons aan met ingebouwde camera om onderling foto’s te verzenden.

Ontwikkeld voor zendamateurs
System Fusion is, net als D-Star, ontwikkeld voor zendamateurs. Waar het DMR-netwerk een commercieel systeem is dat met ID’s werkt in plaats van calls, die in je telefoonboek weer worden omgezet in call en naam, ondersteund System Fusion callsigns. De roepletters van het tegenstation en de repeater zijn dus direct zichtbaar voor de gebruiker. Wanneer er GPS-data meegezonden wordt is daarbij ook de afstand te zien tussen de verschillende stations. Een ander kenmerk is dat apparatuur dual-band geleverd wordt, dus voor zowel de 2-meter band alsook de 70-centimeter band.

Yaesy_Fusion_WiRESKoppeling via internet of HAMNET
Repeaters kunnen onderling gekoppeld worden via internet, om zo een netwerk van repeaters te vormen. Bij DMR noemen we dit groepen, bij D-Star reflectors. SysOps van een repeater moeten hiervoor wel een Windows computer uitrusten met speciale software en de WiRES adapter aanschaffen bij de repeater.

Een hotspot voor thuis
Voor D-Star zijn er hotspots verkrijgbaar. Dit zijn mini-repeaters die werken met een vermogen van circa 10 milliWatt. Meer dan voldoende om in en om huis dekking te hebben wanneer je daar geen bereik hebt van een gewone repeater. Voor DMR zijn er nog geen hotspots, evenzo geldt voor System Fusion. Omdat allen de AMBE-codec gebruiken om de analoge spraak om te zetten in een digitaal signaal, ligt het voor de hand dat hotspots ook zullen verschijnen voor DMR en System Fusion. Guus (PE1PLM) werkt hier al aan en op Hamradio in Friedrichshafen was te zien dat hij daarbij concurrentie krijgt vanuit Duitsland.

Repeaters in Nederland
Op dit moment werken enkele zendamateurs aan de bouw van een repeater netwerk. Globaal kunnen we zeggen dat deze in de strook ‘midden Nederland’ komen en dekking moeten geven in grote delen van Noord-Holland, Utrecht, Gelderland en Overijssel. Gisteren zijn deze repeaters aangekomen bij Hamshop in Maarssen en opgehaald. Waar deze repeaters komen is voor nu nog even niet belangrijk, omdat de initiatiefnemers nog niet naar buiten willen treden. Een en ander ligt ook aan de mogelijkheid tot het verkrijgen van een ATOF zodat de repeater 24/7 onbemand mag uitzenden.
