This Friday at HackPGH: The Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System!

May 3, 2010

Attention amateur radio operators!  This Friday at 7pm, join us at HackPittsburgh and learn about the Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (NBEMS). Harry Bloomberg, an Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator for the Western PA Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES), will talk about ARES, how the services works for Western PA and his responsibilities there.

Harry will also give us a rundown and a demo of the Open Source NBEMS  package, which allows lists of data to be sent successfully over ham radio during an emergency.

As with all Friday events at HackPittsburgh, this NBEMS talk and demo with Harry Bloomberg is open to the public!  HackPittsburgh is located at 1936 5th Ave. in Pittsburgh, PA.  The entrance can be found around back on Watson Street, next to the big yellow garage door.  Doors open at 6pm, and Harry will take the stage at 7pm.  We hope to see you there!
