Net on Tuesday evening 7-9 pm on one of the local repeaters (see below)
The Five County Digital Training Net, FCDTN, supports digital mode training for the five counties of Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks and Philadelphia.
We use the local repeater
Bucktown 147.270 + offset, PL 77 Hz
Roxborough (same as above) - not active right now 2021
We also on occasions use ZOOM to discuss various issues or invite a guest speaker.
Recent guest speakers have been John KL4YFD, the author of the new alpha FLDIGI modes OFDM,
and W3QA Lor Kutchins, member of development team for Winlink.
We are looking for new speakers, so contact Ron NY3J or Barry K3EUI with suggestions.
The purpose of the Five County Digital Training net is to investigate and become proficient using programs like
Fldigi/FLMSG/FLAMP, Winlink, MMSSTV, WSJT-X, JSCALL, WSPR, and others as they are developed.
We recently spent a lot of time learning about the Winlink mode VARA (both HF SSB and VHF/UHF FM).
Download VARA HF and VARA FM at EA5HVK web page.
We try to coordinate our net with the needs of the local ARES/RACES county net controls.
