Nevertheless this powerful feature can get in the way of running normal analogue FM NETs if not well understood. Here is what I mean; when our repeater is connected to a distant node it is connected in digital mode only. But our repeater can support both FM (analogue) and C4FM (digital) transmissions as it has been purposely set to AMS mode (automatic). Both transmissions can coexist (in serial mode). So it is very important that when we run our FM only NETs to disconnect our repeater from any distant WiresX nodes first. Equally it is important to let local digital users know that an analogue NET is about to begin.
To make it clear, it is the responsibility of the operator who connected the repeater in the first place to disconnect it when we have a scheduled FM NET or when he/she has finished interacting with other stations or monitoring.
