PBC Basic NBEMS...
is a simplified & uniform approach to the
Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System.
That allows the typical PBC Radio Amateur
to easily pass complex documents and forms.
Contact info is below
WHY IS IT BECOMING SO POPULAR?
The focus is interoperability between EOCs, shelters, neighborhood distribution points, clubhouses, Command Posts, NGO and other emergency sites.
This is reliably achieved with FM communication using the accurate and robust MT63 digital mode. At 200 words per minute, it is vastly more speedy than voice modes... especially for complex documents like the Excel spreadsheet to the right.

TYPICAL HF NBEMS >>>>>>>>>>>>
Equipment NOT required for PBC Basic NBEMS on FM. Advanced hams that have complex stations, usually with special cables & interfaces, can use still use them for complex documents. Obviously they are not nearly as portable and require much more training and experience to operate.
PBC BASIC NBEMS
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. The speaker/mic is optional.
