on Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Systems
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.
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.
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:
York Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (NY-NBEMS).
East Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (USeast-NBEMS)
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.
