Thanks to Roger and other listeners, I have learned that it is not as difficult to process Thor images as I described in last week’s email. This weekend, Shortwave Radiogram will include another brief segment in Thor 22, with an image, so that we can try it again.
Here is the procedure: When the Thor 22 image has been received, make any necessary adjustments for phase and slant, using the left and right arrows. Then click Save. This will create a png image that will be in your Fldigi \images\ folder. (See also the Fldigi manual Thor page.)
You can do this later, after the broadcast. Set Fldigi for Op Mode Thor 22. Click View. Then select THOR Raw Image. Choose the .raw file that you want, make any needed adjustments, then Save as a png file. These .raw files are about 8 Mb each, so you might want to delete them to save disk space.
The Thor 22 segment will begin with the SWRG avatar. You can save that with a left click on the avatar.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 31, 20-21 January 2018, in MFSK32 except where noted:
