During the afternoon, while napping, I received an email from WINB indicating that they were not able to retrieve this weekend’s program that I uploaded to their FTP site. I tried again under a different filename. If that problem has not been resolved, you might hear last week’s Shortwave Radiogram UTC Friday at 0030-0100 UTC on 9265 kHz.
Meanwhile, The Mighty KBC has greatly expanded its transmission schedule on WRMI. See the KBC section below for the new times and frequencies. I am not certain how much of the additional programming is repeats and how much is first-run. The minute of MFSK64 will be at 30 minutes past the hour on at least some of the Eric van Willegen programs.
Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 285) are provided by Darau Blė in Lithuania and Scott in Ontario (both 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 287, 13-16 January 2023, in MFSK modes as noted:
1:37 MFSK32: Program preview
2:44 MFSK32: No more washing clothes with detergent?
7:12 MFSK64: Advantages of ancient Rome’s concrete recipe*
13:36 MFSK64: This week’s images*
27:44 MFSK32: Closing announcements (with surprise mode)
* with image(s)

“This is a Music Show” Most of the show is a music show, but the host transmits some MFSK-64 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). Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show. firstname.lastname@example.org www.twitter.com/ThisIsAMusicSho/ @ThisIsAMusicSho https://thisisamusicshow.com
Pop Shop Radio from British Columbia, Canada, includes “a whole variety of pop music, such as records from the 1960s and 1970s that were played on Top-40 radio stations not only in North America but also on offshore radio and stations like Radio Luxembourg.” The programs now include some MFSK text and an image.
