Digi Net

Digi made simple:
This is grossly oversimplified, but it's a place to start: the software makes noises, the transmitter transmits them, the remote receiver receives them, and the software at the other end turns them back into letters on the screen.

Different noises for RTTY, PSK-31, Olivia, Throb, Hellescriber, etc. but the technique does not change, and once you get a program working, you likely don't need to change anything but the VFO.

Our local 2 meter fldigi net is Monday night at 1730 local on 147.945 PL -88.5.  Anyone is welcome to join us.

You don't need any special equipment. If you have a computer and a ham radio, you can digi. You will need to download a few files and set up the programs. If you have trouble email the webmaster at the link below, or give us a call on the the ABARC repeater, and we'll make sure you get some help. We occasionally have digi meetings to iron out problems people are having.

You'll need both fldigi and flmsg to participate.

We've provided the .zip file in case you are not able to download the .exe file. You do not need all 4 files. Download either both .exe files or both .zip files and you'll be ready to participate.
