"Fldigi is a computer program intended for Amateur Radio Digital Modes operation using a PC (Personal Computer). Fldigi operates (as does most similar software) in conjunction with a conventional High Frequency Single Sideband radio transceiver, and uses the PC sound card as the main means of input from the radio, and output to the radio. These are audio-frequency signals. The software also controls the radio by means of another connection, typically a serial port."
According to Stan Bradley, KS5B, the training will also be available through the services of the Tuttle First Baptist Church video streaming service.. "Look for the FLDIGI icon after connecting"
