In the September meeting announcement I noted that we’d be learning how to use fldigi and RMS Express to transmit messages. Jim, K3UGA, found a great video that not only discusses how to setup fldigi and rest of the suite of programs that make up the Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (NBEMS) but also shows them in use. I encourage everyone to take a look at the video (below) and become familiar with these programs.
In the near future I’d like to start a net using these tools to make sure everyone remains familiar with how they work. Fldigi, by the way, is a great program for everyday keyboard-to-keyboard communications on HF and the same setup could be used for both emergencies and normal operations.
