The 443.200 repeater is also located on a Franklin County dispatch tower located on Gerrard Road in Lavonia Ga.  This is now a FULL fusion repeater connected to the internet fusion network via RF link offsite. It is currently not linked but ready to accept your calls. Just press the Wires X button on the radio and off you go! Will connect to any Fusion Talk group for 30Min then reset. 
This too is AMS. Analog and digital
DG ID 01
Will be Suspending internet link to this repeater due to lack of use. Buy END of 2021 
This is due to lack of use of the system and cost to me. 
The repeater will stay a DRX1 and will have AMS still left on 
so you can still talk locally on Fusion. Just will not have the internet link on DG ID 01. 
Currently Considering Multimode options for both my UHF repeaters.
