Shortwave Radiogram, del 16 al 20 de Marzo: programa 296

In North America, the transition to “daylight savings time” is now complete. WINB maintains its schedule on Eastern Time in the USA, so Shortwave Radiogram will be one hour earlier by UTC. The WRMI frequencies used for Shortwave Radiogram stay with UTC for their schedules, so Shortwave Radiogram will be one hour later by local time in most of North America. The schedule below reflects these changes.

We were caught by surprise by WRMI’s transmission of The Mighty KBC on Sundays. WRMI’s 5950 kHz frequency stays with Eastern Time in the USA, so The Mighty KBC is now Sundays 2100-2300 UTC, with the minute of MFSK64 now at 2230 UTC.

The images in this weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram show the effects of the “noreaster” weather event that occurred in the eastern USA. Down here in Virginia, not far from the Atlantic coast, there was no snow, but we did did get two days of heavy gusts. These became a bit tiresome to listen to as they shook the house. Somehow, my antennas survived.

Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 295)  are provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 1300 UTC) and by Szabolcs Bognár in Hungary (Saturday 0330 UTC, audio excerpt only).  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 296, 16-20 March 2023, in MFSK modes as noted:

“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.    @ThisIsAMusicSho
