I have been following the C4FM news for some time, since I am a member of a Yaesu group on Facebook (FT-857D and FT-1000MkV Field Owner). I have been thinking about getting into it for awhile. When I decided to put a 2M FM Mobile in my Mazda I went with a C4FM capable radio. I just got it installed this week. We have a local repeater hooked to the Texas Nexus room and it is pretty active, I tried it out today. I don't think I am going to get hooked on ragchewing on C4FM but it is a new mode for me and I do find it interesting. One of the amusing things was a guy in New Jersey talking to a guy in Ireland in the Texus Nexus room. Not much different than a VoIP call in terms of the technology but I got a kick out of it. What was your first C4FM Contact? Do you prefer other modes instead like DMR or D-Star? I am still very new to all of this. What do you most enjoy doing on C4FM or similar modes?
