Meeting August 8, 2019

Digital Presentation by Mark, KD0QYN

For those that were unable to attend, Mark Griffith (KD0QYN), creator of the PiGate solution for RF based email for emergency communications purposes, presented on digital modes for ham radio. As one could expect, this piqued the interest among several in attendance. A vote was taken and the club is pushing forward with the creation of a digital net.

Action Items

To start, all interested parties need to purchase/procure the following items:

  1. A VHF transceiver
  2. An interface that will connected your transceiver with your computer. A very popular choice is a Signalink with appropriate cables to connect to your transceiver. These are currently on sale at DX Engineering. Click here to have a look.
  3. A laptop or desktop computer
  4. Software, namely FLDIGI (click here to download) and FLMSG (click here to download)

Please have the above taken care of prior to our September meeting. We will have time then to have everyone bring their setups to the meeting and provide help in configuring
