During the past week, WRMI was reported in 11580 kHz, replacing 15770
kHz. I was ready to change the Shortwave Radiogram transmission schedule
(below), when listeners informed me that WRMI was back on 15770. In
response to my email, WRMI told me that 11580 was a one-day test. The
15770 kHz frequency certainly covers much of the world through its
curtain antenna. It’s usually heard in Europe, the Middle East, and New
Zealand, and I’m sure other places, as well. However, I usually cannot
receive it in Virginia. I’m too close to Florida.
Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 136) are provided by Scott in Ontario (Sunday 0800 UTC on 5850 kHz) and Ralf in Germany (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.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 137, UTC 31 January-2 February 2020, in MFSK modes as noted:

The Mighty KBC transmits to North America Sundays at
0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 7-9 EST) on 5960 kHz, via Germany. A minute of
MFSK is at about 0130 UTC. Reports to Eric: email@example.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 0200-0300 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 email@example.com , 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 0000 UTC (Wednesdays 7 pm EST) on 3536 kHz USB.
