EDX Foundations Training

EDX Foundations

The Basic course is designed to give new users a solid understanding of EDX Signal/SignalPro. By the end of the course a user will be able to create projects and project templates, import and manage radio equipment, choose appropriate propagation mode settings, run studies, and query/export study information. The user will also be able to dissect a typical RFP and understand how EDX software can be used to respond to RFPs in a timely manner.
