Shortwave Radiogram, 8 al 11 de Julio 2021: programa 212

Last week (program 211), at the suggestion of Tobias in Germany, we eliminated the short (about 0.6 second) gap between the text introduction and the image itself. This seemed to result in fewer failed image due to missed headers. Why is the gap a problem? It might be due to HF noise causing stray characters that clash with the header. Or it could be a loss of synchronization in Flidigi during the gap.

This weekend, we will try a slightly more scientific study of the gap issue. The program will include seven MFSK64 images. Four will be transmitted using the new method of no gap between the text introduction and the image. Three will still have the gap. …

Locomotive    NO GAP
Bee                GAP  
Moths             NO GAP
Fireworks       GAP
Middle Falls   NO GAP
Heron            GAP
Painting         NO GAP

From your reports, we can compare the occurrence of missed headers among the gap and no-gap images.

Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 212) are provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 1300 UTC) and Ralf in Germany (Sunday 2330 UTC).  The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.

Also this weekend, Daz Man writes: “I have some Ham-DRM data. Needed: EasyPal or WinDRM plus 7zip (Windows) QSSTV or TRXAMADRM plus p7zip (Linux) Data is Mode E, QAM4, 3 passes – also with 3dB PAPR processing to boost SNR.”

“This is a Music Show” 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 (Wednesday evening in the Americas) and a new time also on WRMI, Wednesdays at 2100-2200 UTC on 7780 kHz (aimed towards Europe) . Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show. thisisamusicshow@gmail.com .  www.twitter.com/ThisIsAMusicSho/ @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 1230 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 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 0000 UTC (Wednesdays 7 pm EST) on 3536 kHz USB.

Thanks for your reception reports!
