Information on Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Systems

The Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (NBEMS - pronounced "N-beams" in the trade) is a suite of software programs designed for fast, error-free, long-distance emergency messaging. NBEMS is an Open Source software suite that allows amateur radio operators to reliably send and receive data using nearly any computer (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and any analog radio. NBEMS software provides a digital radio sound card modem and a form-based messaging program in two separate applications that work together to form a perfect software suite for emergency radio digital communications for use on HF and VHF/UHF. The software is free and multi-platform (Windows / Linux / Mac). The FLdigi package is available for Windows, MAC & Linux at http://www.w1hkj.com.

The following two NBEMS networks (nets) are made up of many different individuals of various Amateur Radio emergency communication groups from a wide-geographic area. The two nets that are affiliated with NYC-ARECS are:

New York Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (NY-NBEMS).

&

US East Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (USeast-NBEMS)

These groups specialize in digital datamodes for HF, VHF & UHF in the amateur radio EmComm world. All hams are welcome and not just those affiliated with a particular group or organization. These training/check-in nets meet on 7.036 Mhz or 3.536 Mhz (depending on NVIS f0F2 MUF) in USB and using a waterfall spot of 1500 hz. The nets use Olivia for check-ins and MFSK32 for message passing. Check-in on the air only with your callsign and county / state.
