Shortwave Radiogram, 17-19 January 2020: Fast radio bursts from our own galaxy

Shortwave Radiogram

I was afraid that eventually I would lose track of Shortwave Radio program numbers. Well, It happened in last weekend’s email. I wrote that the weekend’s show number was 133, but it was, of course, 134. And this
weekend it will be program 135.

Last Sunday morning at 0800-0830 UTC, 5850 kHz from WRMI was not on the air, but 7730 kHz was. I am hopeful both frequencies will return this Sunday.

Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 134) are provided by Scott in Ontario (Saturday 1330 UTC), 2010DFS in Japan (Sunday 0800 UTC 7730 kHz), Ralf in Germany and Jeff 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 nine MFSK images.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 135, 17-19 January 2020, in MFSK modes as noted:

1:44  MFSK32: Program preview
2:49  Puzzling home galaxy of repeating fast radio burst*
8:47  MFSK64: Process turns CO2 into ‘green methane’*
14:14  Images of the week*
27:02  MFSK32: Closing announcements

* with image(s)

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: 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, 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.

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. 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. USEast NBEMS Net: Please also note
the USEast NBEMS Net, Thursdays at 0000 UTC (Wednesdays 7 pm EST) on
3536 kHz USB.

For Zach in Alabama, the lower the frequency the better for reception of
WRMI in Florida. But with 5850 kHz not on the air 12 January, he had to
try 7730 kHz. The resulting MFSK images were artistically softened by
shortwave propagation.
