Shortwave Radiogram, 7-10 November 2019

Shortwave Radiogram

In the Northern Hemisphere, the shift back to winter time is complete.
On our WRMI frequencies, Shortwave Radiogram stays at the same UTC times, so most of you will be tuning in those broadcasts one hour earlier by local time. On WINB’s 9265 kHz, Shortwave Radiogram stays with local Eastern Time, so the shows will stay at the same local time for most of you. On the WINB DRM  frequency, now 13690 kHz for Shortwave Radiogram, the program will still be Friday at 1500-1530 UTC, so one hour earlier by local time for most listeners. See the schedule below.

Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 124) are provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 1300-1330 UTC) and Jeff in Oklahoma (Sunday 2330 UTC). The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.

As winter approaches, reception has become more difficult on some of our transmissions, notable UTC Saturday at 0330-0400 UTC on WINB’s 9265 kHz. This is actually a good workout for our digital text modes. This weekend we will stay with our usual MFSK32 and MFSK64, but later in the year we might try more robust modes such as Olivia 64-2000.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 125, 7-10 November 2019, in MFSK modes as noted:

1:37  MFSK32: Program preview
2:42  Voyager 2 sends data from beyond the solar system*
11:57  MFSK64: Freedom House’s Freedom on the Net 2019 report*
18:28  This week’s images*
27:48  MFSK32: Closing announcements

The Mighty KBC transmits to North America Sundays at
0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 7-9 pm EST) 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 1300 UTC on 3584 kHz USB, and the
Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1300 UTC on 3583 kHz USB (with
out-of-state check-ins now starting at 1230 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, Thursdays at 0000 UTC (Wednesday 7 pm EST) on 3536 kHz USB.



A data transmission on 15768 kHz was no problem for Sylvain in
France, especially using USB for reception of Shortwave Radiogram, 1
November 2019, 1300-1330 UTC, 15770 kHz from WRMI Florida …
