Last weekend’s excerpt of Hungarian text from the revived RFE/RL
Hungarian Service was received and decoded successfully all over the
world, including all the diacritics. Here is an example as transmitted from Florida and received in, appropriately, Hungary.
Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 169) are provided by 2010DFS in Japan (Sunday 0800 UTC on 7730 kHz) and by Ralf in Germany and Scott in Ontario
(both Sunday 2330 UTC). Scott usually prepares his video from a
transmission on 15770 kHz, but this frequency did not propagate well
within North America last weekend. 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 images (1 x MFSK32 and 8 x MFSK64).
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 170, 17-20 September 2020, in MFSK modes as noted:

the broadcast. It’s transmitted on WRMI, Thursdays at 0200-0300 UTC on
5850 kHz (Wednesday evening in the Americas) and a new time also on

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 firstname.lastname@example.org , 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.
Mark in the UK received these images 12 September 2020, 1330 UTC, 15770 kHz from WRMI Florida …
And he used this receiver, outdoors …
