The Purpose of this Net is to provide Ohio ARES District 3 participants with information and a Training ground where the use of Digital Communications can be discussed and practiced on a regular basis. All Amateurs are welcome and encouraged to participate in this Net.

Net participants have successfully tested and used their Digital Equipment TX/RX capabilities on VHF. Training has included sending and receiving traffic using Blank, Plain Text, NTS, CSV, and ICS Forms with FLDigi, FLMsg, and FLAmp Software. Training has included the use and practice of MT63, Olivia, PSK31, PSK500, PSK125R10, and some Easy Pal MFSK Viedo Picture Modes.
