The club lent me a Yaesu FT1D fusion HT to check out for giggles.

Since my VX-6R HT has that wires button, can I work a wires-x "room" with my VX-6R in case I find that I want to do?

$400 for a fusion HT is a bit steep if I can make do with my vx-6r.

Hi- did you ever find your answer? I just got a VX-6R and am wondering what I can do with the WIRES function.

Wires X is a Fusion digital connection to the internet. Wires is an analog connection to the internet. They are not compatible with each other. Do you have a Wires connected (analog) repeater in your area?
