We will take checkins using Fldigi. The check in format is to add
a line space and enter your callsign your name location and qtc if
you have traffic or qru no traffic. Then add another line space to
separate your check in from the noise.

You can enter the text in the transmit window before hand then press the T/R button at the bottom right section of Fldigi. You can also press the T/R button then type. Be sure to click the T/R button to stop your transmission. We will take check ins using Thor22. We will switch to MFSK128 to pass traffic and images. For longer messages the sender can decide what mode to use. Let everyone know what mode you are going to use then change the mode and send your callsign and let the repeater drop before sending your traffic.
Remember to let the repeater drop before you transmit to reset the timer. The repeater has a short squelch tail after the courtesy beep. Be sure that your PTT delay is set. On a Signalink set the DLY to 12 o'clock. Set your transmit audio level so you don't distort your signal. It's handy to listen with another radio to your signal. Set your receive level so the Fldigi diamond is green.
Remember to turn on your TxID and RxID. Uncheck the squelch button and keep the slider at the bottom of the scale. RV and ALC should not be checked. Always keep track of your transmission time so that you don't time out the repeater. If your message is taking too long press the T/R button to stop the transmission. Remember to stop the transmission after an image is sent. Before you transmit always listen for any stations that may be trying to access the repeater by voice.
