We present preliminary results for fB and masses of low-lying heavy-light mesons in the static limit. Calculations were performed in the quenched approximation using multistate smearing functions generated from a Hamiltonian for a spinless relativistic quark. The 2S-1S and 1P-1S mass splitting are measured. Using the 1P-1S charmonium splitting to set the overall scale, the ground state decay constant fB, is 319 ± 11 (stat) MeV.
