We have a Yaesu DR-1X in Cornwall, VE3SVC 147.180 + (110.9 Hz.)
I think Yaesu has realized they are not capable of 50 W continuous;
ours came from the factory “dialled back” to 40 W on high power, not 50.
We’re not high duty cycle here in Cornwall. So far so good. Very sensitive.
Ours is set to Auto Rx; FM or Digital in, FM out. No Fusion users here yet.

Where is VA3TLO located?

And further information to the SLVRC.  VE3MPC uhf,  444.4000 + 5 MHz, is now also on the air with a Yaesu System Fusion repeater but only running 20 watts TX power.  Unfortunately, the  equipment  is not rated for 50 watts continuous duty.  As opposed to the previous FM only repeater, the new Yaesu equipment is *not* slaved to the VHF VE3MPC repeater channel.   The VE3MPC system fusion repeater is configured for *mixed" mode of operation, that is FM in results in FM out, and digital in, digital out.  For FM operation on the UHF channel, 100 Hz CTCSS is required.  Those wanting to operate FM on VE3MPC / UHF should monitor the channel with an open squelch momentarily to insure there is not active digital traffic happening.  The operation of VE3MPC VHF, 147.150 +, remains solely FM with carrier squelch.

I can also report that two Yaesu system fusion repeaters have also been acquired for the VE3TWO site operated by the Ottawa Valley Mobile Radio Club.  One is intended for operation on the VHF channel 147.300 + and the other for the UHF channel 444.2000 + 5 .   We hope to have these in operation soon.

On another subject:

Also, as usual, the Ottawa Valley Mobile Radio Club is sponsoring an Amateur Radio Course this fall with registration happening Monday evening, Sept 21 at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum.  Pass the word to  those that may be interested, send me an email.  VE3LC at rac.ca
