is a simplified & uniform approach to the
Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System*
BASIC NBEMS allows the typical Radio Amateur to easily pass complex documents and forms without investing in new equipment or special cables. An existing radio and computer are used with a simple, easy to learn acoustic coupling technique!
A major focus is widespread interoperability
between EOCs, clubhouses, Command Posts,
shelters, neighborhood distribution points, NGO
and other emergency sites.
This is reliably achieved using FM communi-
cation with the accurate and robust MT63 digital
mode. At 200 words per minute with auto error
correction, it is vastly more speedy and accurate
than voice modes... especially for complex
documents like the Excel spreadsheet to the right.
* NBEMS is a fantastic, user-friendly suite of
free programs including FLDIGI & FLMSG that are
the result of years of work by David W1HKJ and his
development team. The amateur community and
FLEMA are grateful for their untiring efforts!

PRESENTATIONS & WORKSHOPS
TYPICAL HF NBEMS >>>>>>>>>>>>
Stations with sound card interfaces and their special cables can still use them for Basic NBEMS and the MT63 modes. Obviously they are not nearly as portable and require much more training and experience to operate.
Ultra-portable and very simple. Just a radio and common computer are needed ...that's all! The radio is held up to the computer for "acoustical coupling" of the data tones. Even at low volume levels, the complex documents are sent reliably. The key is the amazing, free software... FLDIGI+FLMSG
The speaker/mic is optional.
