The Greek government has decided to delay the decision to eliminate shortwave broadcasting from March 31 or May 31. To help the Greek government in its decision, last week Shortwave Radiogram transmitted Greek text, as a demonstration of radio as a substitute for an increasingly censored and restricted internet. At the bottom of this email, you can see the Greek text received in Greece by our friend Merkouris.
Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 249) are provided by Scott in Ontario and Frigid RF in Virginia (both Friday 1300 UTC), Merkouris in Greece (Saturday 0230 UTC Greek excerpt), and Mike R. somewhere in the USA (Sunday 2330 UTC excerpt). (And see the April meeting of the Palomar Amateur Radio Club in California with a demonstration of Fldigi, using Shortwave Radiogram audio.) The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 252, 14-19 March 2022, in MFSK modes as noted:
1:34 MFSK32: Program preview
2:41 MFSK32: Surprising temperature swings on Neptune*
