Program 276 will be transmitted this weekend (20-25 October) and repeated the following weekend (27 October-1 November).
While WRMI has made good progress restoring its antennas and feedlines since Hurricane Ian, key WRMI frequencies used for Shortwave Radiogram are still off the air. 15770 kHz frequency came back on the air October 14, but after our 1300-1330 UTC broadcast. 7730 kHz is at very low power, preventing successful decodes at all listening locations. WRMI expects that 5850 and 7780 kHz will return by the end of October.
WRMI is asking for donations to help with the substantial cost of repairing it antennas and feedlines. A GoFundMe page has been established. There is also a donation link on the wrmi.net home page: Be sure to use the pull-down menu to select Hurricane Ian Damage Repairs. WRMI has been generous to Shortwave Radiogram. Please consider a donation.
If you missed program 275, the audio file is here and a video of WINB shortwave reception is provided by Scott in Ontario.
In the meantime, WINB has providing good reception, or at least good enough for our MFSK32 text, in many parts of the world.
And to add to our woes, the transmitter at Nauen, Germany, was not on the air Sunday 0000-0200 UTC, on 5960 kHz, for The Mighty KBC and our MFSK64 feature at 0130 UTC. We hope 5960 will be back this weekend.
As mentioned above, a video of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 274) 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.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 276, 20 October-1 November 2022, in MFSK modes as noted:
