With the new Amateur Radio C4FM Digital Repeters out now by Yaesu. Is there a way they should be layed out in the database ? Should they have a separate category like DStar has ? Keep in mind that the repeater can transmit both analog FM as well as digital C4FM. I am not a Database Manager and noticed how my area Database manager keeps changing it around.

For the P25 and analog mixed mode repeaters, I make two entries. One with all the P25 info and then the second one with all the analog info.

I have not personally looked into the Yaesu C4FM, but I have heard it is not compatible with the P25/C4FM gear made by Motorola, Harris, Kenwood, ect. . .that is already on the market. So maybe some sort of fix will be needed for database to reflect the new Yaesu C4FM??
