In our part of the world, summer weather is here. We usually keep the air conditioning off as long as possible, but, finally, it was necessary today. Upstairs, where I produce Shortwave Radiogram, the effort of the AC is, at best, half hearted.
The only casualty from last weekend was The Mighty KBC on unexpected 9900 kHz, UTC Sunday 0000-0200 UTC, rather than the scheduled 9925 kHz.
This weekend, tune around if you don’t hear KBC on 9925 kHz.
A video of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 158) is provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 1300 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 eight MFSK64 images.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 159, 2-5 July 2020, in MFSK modes as noted:
1:42 MFSK32: Program preview
2:47 Climate change reversed 6,500-year cooling trend

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. 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, Wednesdays 2300 UTC (7 pm EDT) on 3536 kHz USB.
