Digital Training for Upcoming SET (10/5/2013)

For everyone who would like to use digital messaging during our upcoming 2013 NFARES SET (Simulated Emergency Test) on October 5, from 9 AM - 2 PM, please join us on our NFARES Digital Training Nets.

You are welcome to join us on the nets even you you are not planning to volunteer for the 2013 SET.

We will begin holding them on Tuesday, July 23rd and then on the following Tuesday nights from 8:30 - 9:30 PM. We will be using the 145.47 (-) PL 100 Hz repeater. (Once the 147.06 (+) PL 100 Hz repeater is confirmed to be at full signal again, we'll send out an announcement and will hold subsequent nets on that repeater.)

Here is a link to a PDF file that includes all the information you will need to get the Fldigi system installed:

Copy and past the links from the PDF file into your browser to download the needed files.

If you get to do that before the Tuesday night net, that's fine, but it's OK if you prefer to have Wayne, KG5WU, and me walk you though all the steps during the training nets. That's what they are for. The first net (at least) will be dedicated to downloading and installing the software. We had 100% success last year and we will work with everyone who is interested to get you up and running.

Even if you were proficient with the Fldigi system last year, please join us on these nets to get familiar with the latest updates.

BTW, we passed 114 messages during last year's SET and 86 of those were digital.

See you on radio on Tuesday nights...
