Hello friends,Last week’s 20xPSKR63 was successfully decoded by some listeners, but for the most part the mode showed too many errors for typical shortwave conditions. The MFSK128 had better results, but it produced more errors than the slower MFSK64.
A list of videos of Shortwave Radiogram from the last two weekends is at the bottom of this email. An audio archive of Shortwave Radiogram is maintained by Mark in the UK. And analysis is provided by Roger in Germany.
This weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram will include MFSK32, MFSK128, and MFSK64, with six images.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 61, 17-20 August 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:
1:40 MFSK32: Program preview
3:00 “Zero euro” bills with Karl Marx’s image*
