Digital text modes Sunday July 17th 9925 kHz +/ 01:30 UTC

This weekend (July 17) on the digital text modes, we will try something different. A shortwave transmitter in Germany will take control of your computer. You will, as usual, use the Fldigi software to decode the modes. If you don't already have Fldigi, download it from https://sourceforge.net/projects/fldigi/files/fldigi/ . And you will use a companion program Flmsg. Download it from https://sourceforge.net/projects/fldigi/files/flmsg/ . To make Flmsg work with Fldigi, in Fldigi: Configure > Misc > NBEMS > under Reception of flmsg files, select Open with flmsg and Open in browser, and below that indicate where your Flmsg.exe file is located -- probably somewhere in Program Files(x86). If all goes well, when the digital mode transmission concludes, Flmsg will open a new window of your web browser to display information about The Mighty KBC. If your browser is not open, Flmsg will open it for you. (If you are asked to ignore checksum error, select Yes.) To save your screenshot to include in your reception report, in Windows, press PrtScn, then paste to MS Paint or MS Word (Ctrl-V is one way to do this). If it doesn't work the first time, or you don't have Flmsg installed, you can try this from your recording
