NBEMS Testing

Experimenting a little with the NBEMS software tonight. Moving data from one computer to another over 2 meter simplex using various digital modes.

This is going to be a very useful tool for sending information that is not very conducive to sending via voice.  Things like supply lists, rosters, reports, etc.  And the tool even puts the data into ARRL Radiogram or ICS message formats.  Message integrity is guaranteed with the use of checksum techniques. Very cool.

Plan to do some more testing with other ARES members.

Working very K4GTM

D-Star 2 meter Frequency Change

From John-WB4QDX........

Due to some frequency coordination issues, the Pembroke, GA (KJ4GGV C) repeater's 2m module has changed frequency from 145.30- to 145.28 -0.6. Please make note of this change and reprogram your radios to the new frequency. KJ4GGV C is located at Pembroke, GA between Savannah and Statesboro and has super coverage.
