OH Statewide Digital HF Net
  August 15th, 2012

The Ohio Section is developing plans to use Digital HF for emergency communications.  Part of this will be a regular ARES Digital HF Net.

To head development of this net,  OH SEC, Matt, W8DEC, has appointed Official Emergency Station and Preble County AEC Gary Hollenbaugh NJ8BB as the Net Manager for the Statewide Digital HF Net.  Gary has been given the “green light” to develop and implement this project as he deems fit.

District 3 DEC Al, KB8RPO, is fully behind this effort and encouraged everyone to download the chosen software during the District 3 ARES Net on 15 August.

The software packages are  fldigi and flmsg.  They can be downloaded for free at: http://www.w1hkj.com/.  There is an online wiki and there is a downloadable PDF with good information  located at  and even a YouTube video

Please note that fldigi runs on a variety of platforms such as Windows, Linux and Mac, and can be used as a general purpose HF digital program for general PSK31, etc. operations .
