Shortwave Radiogram

Shortwave Radiogram

Hello friends,

A schedule change for Shortwave Radiogram is scheduled to begin today. The Sunday 2030-2100 UTC transmission changes to Friday 2030-2100 UTC on 7780 kHz and 9455 kHz. See the new schedule below. (Sometimes it takes a few days for the automation system to catch up with the advertised schedule, so we will see what actually happens this weekend.)

Last week’s MFSK64 performed very well, even in reception conditions where this fast (240 wpm) would be expected to show errors. You can see (and decode from) examples in videos produced by BlackApple 62 in Italy (Saturday 1600 UTC) and by Scott in Ontario (Sunday 2330 UTC).

This weekend, we’ll skip the simultaneous text and image transmission, but we will transmit one item (with image) in MFSK64. It is a story about Dyngus Day, an obscure holiday on the Monday after Easter celebrated in my native northern Indiana.

The rest of the program will be in MFSK32, except for a brief surprise mode (with RSID) after the closing announcements. Sorry, I don’t think the surprise mode works with TIVAR or AndFlmsg, but it is brief, and another RSID will bring you back to MFSK32.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 41, 30 March to 2 April 2018, in MFSK32 except where noted:

1:35 Program preview
2:46 MFSK64: Happy Dyngus Day! What is Dyngus Day?*
8:24 MFSK32: Australia plans lasers to destroy space junk*
14:52 The great Pacific garbage patch*
19:49 SSTV from the International Space Station*
24:44 Image* and closing announcements
27:37 Surprise mode
