All stations,

A new wide-area FSQ station, KE5GDB, is on the air.

The antenna is mounted 350 feet above ground on a municipal government tower in Lewisville, the output power of the radio is 20 watts, and operation is on 145.67 MHz FM simplex. The station provides relay capability for QSO chatting, short QST postings, small file transfers, and small image sharing. Coverage of the station includes all or parts of Denton, Collin, and Dallas counties.

The latest version of FLDIGI is available for download…for free, as usual…from the W1HKJ website ( To download FLDIGI, click on the blue “Source Forge” hotlink near the top of the webpage. If you are new to FSQ or have used it but, are ’rusty’, also download the help file (PDF) and review sections 2.35 for FSQ configuration and 5.6 for FSQ operation.

Everyone is welcome to utilize the new Lewisville FSQ ’node’ and help promote/develop FSQ operation in North Texas.

Please let me know your comments/questions.

Thank you and 73,

Paul -- KA5TYW
