Shortwave Radiogram, 18-20 January 2019

Shortwave Radiogram

Last weekend’s first transmission of Shortwave Radiogram in DRM (Digital
Radio Mondiale) via WINB in Pennsylvania actually worked, at least via a
few receivers. I decoded it using a receiver in Spain, and Hans (or
WINB) was able to decode it in Florida. The DRM transmission is today
(Friday), 1500-1530 UTC, 13690 kHz. You can use receivers at using the decoding method described here. You can listen to, and decode from, my DRM reception last weekend via Spain here
(yes, you have to decode the DRM, and decode the MFSK using Fldigi,
etc). And don’t forget the new WINB analog transmissions of Shortwave
Radiogram; see the schedule below (Saturday 0330 UTC is Friday 10:30 pm

Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 82) are provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 2030 UTC), Ralf in Germany (Saturday 1400-1430 UTC) and amazing reception and decode by 2010DFS in Japan. The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.

New York and Pennsylvania NBEMS nets. Most weekends, as
KD9XB, I check in to the New York NBEMS (Narrow Band Emergency
Messaging Software) net Saturday at 1300 UTC on 3584 kHz USB, and the
Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1300 UTC on 3583 kHz USB. Check-ins are
in Thor 22, and messages are in MFSK32. Messages usually use the Flmsg
add-on to Fldigi. If you are a radio amateur in eastern North America,
feel free to check in. Outside the region, use an SDR in the eastern USA
to tune in and decode. You do not need Flmsg to check in, and most of
the messages can be read without Flmsg. If you can decode the net, send
me an email to , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and I
will let them know you are tuned in.
