[Fwd: New EmComm Software for Windows Now Available for Beta Testing]
- CONGRATS to Dave (W1HKJ) and Skip (KH6TY/4) on their latest
New EmComm Software for Windows Now Available for Beta
Testing (Jan 3, 2008) -- The NarrowBand Emergency Messaging
System (NBEMS) development team announced earlier this week
that a Windows NBEMS software suite for beta testing is now
available. NBEMS for Windows is a suite of software programs
designed for point-to-point, error-free emergency messaging
up to or over 100 miles distant. According to developers
Skip Teller, KH6TY and Dave Freese, W1HKJ, the NBEMS system
is designed primarily for use on VHF and up, or on HF with
Near Vertical Incidence Skywave (NVIS) antennas. The system
uses the computer soundcard as the modem. Other than a
simple interface connection between the computer and
transceiver, no additional hardware is needed. Composing and
sending emergency messages on NBEMS is no more difficult
than sending e-mail via the Internet. All forwarding is done
by stations manned by live operators on both ends who can
confirm that a frequency is clear locally, or negotiate a
frequency change to avoid causing interference. The NBEMS
software can also be used for daily casual communications on
PSK31, PSK63, RTTY or MFSK16 and is capable of sending
flawless, high resolution, passport photo-sized color images
in less than 10 minutes over any path that can sustain
PSK250 without excessive repeats. Radio amateurs are invited
to participate in the beta test of the NBEMS. The NBEMS
suite can be downloaded for beta testing from the NBEMS Web
site. Send comments and bug reports via e-mail.

fldigi for the complete functionality.
- Is there a group for this software beta test? I got a crash & burn
with it in both Vista and XP home. I would like to give feedback
where appropriate. Living in a gulf coast area that has been hit
by Opal, Ivan, & Dennis in the 22 years I've been here, I tend to
keep aware of the EMComm stuff when I come across it.

- Please read the entire web page from which you downloaded the NBEMS (is
that what you were referring to?). At the very bottom it gives you
instructions on reporting installation and/or run-time problems.
