Shortwave Radiogram, 18-21 July 2019: Digital modes that don’t melt in the heat

Shortwave Radiogram

I’m late again with this weekly preview. After producing Shortwave Radiogram on Thursday, I sometimes don’t have the time – or energy – to produce this email until the next day. I will try to get back on
schedule next week.

A video of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 108) , Friday 1300 UTC, is provided by Scott in Ontario.  Ralf in Germany usually also produces a video for us, but reception last Sunday at 2330 UTC was not good at his location. The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.

This weekend’s show is in the usual MFSK32 and MFSK64, with nine images.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 109, 18-21 July 2019, in MFSK modes as noted:

1:42  MFSK32: Program preview
2:49  Planting trees can buy time to fight climate change*
9:18  MFSK64: Apollo 11 needed world participation*
15:28  This week’s images*
28:17  MFSK32: Closing announcements

* with image(s)

The Mighty KBC transmits to North America Sundays at 0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 8-10 pm EDT) on 9925 kHz, via Germany. A minute of MFSK is at about 0130 UTC.  Reports to Eric: themightykbc@gmail.com . See also http://www.kbcradio.eu/ and https://www.facebook.com/TheMightyKbc/.

“This is a Music Show” is the newest addition to
digital modes via analog shortwave. Most of the show is a music show,
but the host transmits some MFSK text and image near the end of the
broadcast. It’s transmitted on WRMI, 9395 kHz, Thursday 0130-0230 UTC
(Wednesday evening in the Americas). Also look for a waterfall ID at the
beginning of the show. thisisamusicshow@gmail.com .

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 1200 UTC on 3584 kHz USB, and the
Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1200 UTC on 3583 kHz USB (with
out-of-state check-ins now starting at 1130 UTC). Check-ins are usually
in Thor 22, and messages are in MFSK32 (PA NBEMS is experimenting with
Thor 50×1 for messages). Messages generally 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 radiogram@verizon.net , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and I
will let them know you are tuned in.

 

 

One of my favorite images in this weekend’s show is the moon over Lake Michigan. The horizon is diagonal because of the rocking of the buoy from which the video
was shot. This image transmitted yesterday (Thursday), 2346 UTC, 9265
kHz  from WINB Pennsylvania, was decoded by (from left) Frederic in
France, David in North Carolina, and Erich in Texas …
