Shortwave Radiogram, 3-6 August 2018

Hello friends,

The email system I use for this weekly email is AOL Mail, which now maintains email addresses. Sometimes it behaves oddly. You might occasionally receive a duplicate of this weekly email. If you receive a duplicate every week, please let me know.

Thanks to everyone who participated in last weekend’s test of 8PSK-125F in AM versus SSB modes. For the most part, reception in SSB was better than AM. But even in SSB, there were more decoding errors than we usually experience in MFSK64 and 32. I think we have given 8PSK every opportunity. I am always open to suggestions for experiments with other modes and techniques.

This weekend we will press our luck with a news item in MFSK128 (480 wpm), including an MFSK128 image. Most of the show will be in our usual MFSK 64 and 32 modes. There will be a total of eight MFSK images.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 59, 3-6 August 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:

1:34 MFSK32: Program preview
2:47 NASA marks its 60th year*
7:45 MFSK128: Used cars exported to Africa*
11:46 MFSK64: Milky Way sibling devoured by Andromeda*
16:32 Passing of Oldrich Cip, shortwave frequency planner*
19:46 Images of the week*
28:29 MFSK32: Closing announcements

* with image(s)
