Fldigi Training Day set for Satruday

Club members will have an opportunity to hone their VHF digital skills on Saturday (February 17). We will meet at the South Main Church of Christ (402 S Main) for some classroom time before heading out into the field to put the theory into practice! The training day will be one more step toward training for emergency events such as the upcoming regional hospital communications exercise in April.

We will meet at 9 a.m. at the church building(southeast corner entrance, look for signs). Bring your laptop, android tablet or phone, handheld radio, mobile VHF radio (with power supply and antenna), sound interfaces, cables and we'll load software, configure it and practice sending and receiving digital messages. 

We will work primarily with Fldigi and Flmsg. We'll discuss forms and templates as well as connections and best practiced. (NOTE: If you don't have any equipment, DON'T WORRY, you're still welcome to come and learn what you'll need in the future!)

We'll then head out across town and have a little fun exchanging messages in a "real world" setting. 

Around noon, we'll have lunch somewhere here in Henderson and debrief over a burger. Join us!
