On August 18, 2012 at Huntsville Hamfest Greg Sarratt, W4OZK, ARRL Southeastern Division Director presented David H. Freese, Jr W1HKJ the ARRL Special Technical Service Award for Dave’s work on the fldigi software programs. This presentation was a follow-up to ARRL Letter of Appreciation to David H. Freeze, Jr. signed by the ARRL President Kay Craigie, K3NK, dated July 25, 2012.
The above recognition is well deserved for Dave’s development and distribution of the Fast Light Digital Modem Application (fldigi) family of programs for use in amateur and emergency communications. W1HKJ’s software programs are free for amateur use and the fldigi software runs under Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. In addition, Dave Freese, W1HKJ, worked with the W1AW Station Manager, Joe Carcia, NJ1Q, and W1AW’s digital bulletins are now sent using fldigi.
Thank You Mr. Freeze!
