  I will help you practice FLDigi when you are ready.  Load the programs and contact me for a day and time.  We will meet on  444.275Mhz, + PL 82.5.  Bring your questions and your problems and we'll try to work them out.  I don't know it all but I know some people who know a lot more than I  who are willing to help us out.  There are many videos online that give excellent instruction on the use of this program.  

NOTE:  The latest version, .20, has some changes in the Configuration file.  They are different

​Saturday Nets Protocol:  

​​​​​​​​FL Digi Net

*To participate in the FL Digi Net you will need to download FLDigi.exe, FLMSG.exe and FL Amp.exe.  Here is the link to the necessary files.  The page has many files but we only use these.  Please install them prior to the net or, we'll help you get up and running.  dj

Download the latest version.  Read the link and make sure it says fldigi-4.xx.xx_setup.exe.  Also download flmsg...setup.exe and flamp...setup.exe files.When the page changes the download will begin automatically so don't go clicking on all of the "Download Now" buttons.  They're ads for junk.  

If the download goes well it will pop up a window and you should press "Run" to begin the setup.  Look in your download folder and repeat for flmsg and flamp files.   Mac users will have to search a little harder to find these programs.  I couldn't find them but I know they are there, somewhere.


Digital transmission isn't new and is much older than most people think.  Smoke signals and the blinking lights the Navy used to use on ships were digital traffic.  Morse code, teletype and the Wall Street ticker tape were all digital. Glyphs and letters of the alphabet are symbols that communicate thoughts and ideas to others.  It's all been around a long time.  I'm trying to encourage an easy and efficient cooperative method of sending error free communications in rapid succession.  In a disaster these are important concerns.
