This weekend’s VOA Radiogram will include an experiment suggested by Mark in the UK. Mark notices that interference to MFSK images comes from RF noise that is concentrated in the lower audio frequencies. He wants to know if images might be clearer if they are transmitted at a higher audio frequency.
Because of a few extra minutes in this weekend’s program, the third image will be transmitted a second time, at a center frequency of 2000 Hz.
Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 126, 29-30 August 2015, all in MFSK32 except where noted:
