Introduction

The ‘WORLDLINK Fusion Reflector’ has been designed with the aim of offering the greatest possible support to the users of a Yaesu digital radio.
Typical for the WORLDLINK-Reflector is the compatibility with 10-character callsigns, VW mode, DG-ID, Wires-X, Gm mode, sending and receiving of text messages,
availability of multiple rooms, AMBE and DVMega Cast.

When using the WORLDLINK-Reflector, you can choose between several rooms. You can find an overview of the rooms available on the dashboard.
