More MT-63

By Brian Lawler

Check the Training tab for more help with running MT-63. Be sure to ID by voice and announce you are running MT-63 if you are using the repeater. Do NOT use the repeater unless you are trying to contact another station. Radio testing should be done on a simplex frequency into a dummy load.

MT-63 Help

By Brian Lawler

Download FLDIGI, FLMSG and FLWRAP from http://www.w1hkj.com/download.html Look at the column heading for your computer- Linux, Windows, Apple, etc. Also note the column for the HELP FILES.

Following is a re-post from my blog. You will need to join the Yahoo group to access the files.

WR5J Down in West Seattle posted the following to the NWDigital Google Group regarding NBEMS/FLDIGI MT63 and similar pursuits. Please consider joining the group (P-S-Digi-Hams) and avail yourself of the tools and techniques from the local folks that have been doing the MT-63 thing for a while. Thank you Curt.

MT-63 Experiments

By Brian Lawler

Time for some radio FUN that might prove very valuable during an emergency. Go to www.W1HKJ.com and download the FLDIGI software for your computer. It is available for Windows, Linux and Apple OS. Also on the downloads page you will see the MANUAL and GETTING STARTED GUIDES in PDF format. Get those too, and read through them. If you need a PDF reader, get FoxIt.

We are going to experiment with the MT-63 mode which has proven very useful on VHF and UHF repeaters. This mode of sending computer text can even be used without a computer interface. Just hold the radio mic up to the computer speaker to transmit, and position the computer mic near the radio speaker to receive!

Amateur exam and General classes

By Brian Lawler

A lot of people are asking for a Amateur General Class course and we hear you. Please help us design a course that will suit the desires of the students. Take the survey, and once we have the class scheduled, a notice will appear here soliciting registrations. Please fill out the survey even if you don’t have a strong preference. If we don’t see the interest we won’t do the class. Thanks!
