Shortwave Radiogram, 24-27 October 2019

Shortwave Radiogram

Most of Europe moves its clocks forward this Sunday, 27 October. The WRMI transmissions will remain at their present UTC times, so they will be an hour earlier by local time in Europe. WINB usually keeps its
analog 9265 kHz program schedule fixed to US Eastern time, which will move back one hour on 3 November. Programming on the WINB DRM frequency will probably stay with UTC. The WINB DRM frequency for Shortwave Radiogram will be 13690 kHz as of 7 October (1500-1530 UTC).

In addition to time changes, shortwave propagation is changing, too. Last weekend I heard Shortwave Radiogram using an SDR in Japan Sunday at 0800 UTC on 5850 kHz from WRMI Florida. That Sunday 0800 transmission might also start to become audible in Europe, especially northern Europe.

Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 122 ) are provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 1300 UTC), 2010DFS in Japan (Sunday 0800 UTC on 5850 kHz), Ralf in Germany and Jeff-W5IJH in Oklahoma (both Sunday 2330 UTC). 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 ten images.
Also listen for the call of the world’s loudest bird (alas, not
decodable by Fldigi).

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 123, 24-27 October 2019, in MFSK modes as noted:

The Mighty KBC transmits to North America Sundays at 0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 8-10 pm EDT) on 5960 kHz, via Germany. A minute of MFSK is at about 0130 UTC.  Reports to Eric: . See also and

“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, Thursdays at 0100-0200 UTC on 5850
kHz and 0130-0230 UTC on 9395 kHz (Wednesday evening in the Americas).
Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show. . @ThisIsAMusicSho

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 , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and I
will let them know you are tuned in. USEast NBEMS Net: Please also note the USEast NBEMS Net, Wednesdays at 2300 UTC (7 pm EDT) on 3536 kHz USB.
