Now that Yaesu does NOT require the HRI-200 in order to establish a WIRES-X node, will SharkRF be able to add full WIRES-X functionality to the OpenSpot2?

What do you mean by "will SharkRF be able to add full WIRES-X functionality to the OpenSpot2"? An HRI-200 is still required if you're linking a repeater into the WIRES-X network. An HRI-200 is also required if you want to establish a room on the WIRES-X network.

What I mean is that Yaesu does NOT require an HRI-200. I have a fully functional WIRES-X node up at my QTH using nothing but a C4FM transceiver connected directly to a computer.

The OpenSpot2 is a C4FM transceiver connected to an onboard computer.

An HRI-200 is still required to HOST a WIRES-X room, but not to connect.

The wiresX system is a Yaesu system. Yaesu doesn't permit cross linking from hotspots to the system directly, although some people have bridged their wiresX rooms to ysf/fcs reflectors.

YSF and FCS are part of a different system. While there is wiresX functionality in the openspot2, it does not connect to the Yaesu wiresX system. Instead, it connects to the YSF or FCS systems. They are on different networks.

There's plenty of traffic on the YSF and FCS systems. Two rooms that are connected to the wiresX system are America Link and America RC. Others, like ohio link and MN WIz are also connected, but don't have the traffic that the first two have.
