Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System (NBEMS) is a messaging system used by different agencies including ARES, RACES, MARS, FEMA, The Red Cross, and the national weather services to pass digital traffic (messages) like radiograms, incident reports and even weather reports during emergencies. FlDIGI is a software package used to send and receive NBEMS messages digitally.
NBEMS and FLDigi are promoted for their accuracy and speed for passing information. Operators can send a list of 100 shelter occupants in less than a minute with ZERO errors. Some protocols are designed to send messages in the worst band conditions.
