It started with beacons promoting the SATERN Net which has become a bulletin board of sorts. If you have flmsg set up leave fldigi running on 14065 during the day, make sure receive RSID is on. Even with check sum errors messages will display on your screen.
The flmsg format messages can be saved and/or resent. Its a good practice on using the program. I would suggest that we use the Radiogram more often as it will be probably see more use than the generic form.
