Last week’s ASCII art was largely successful, with several examples of a crisp SHORTWAVE RADIOGRAM even in difficult reception conditions. You can see examples below.
This weekend’s show, number 100(!), is in the usual MFSK32 and MFSK64.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 100, 16-19 May 2019, in MFSK modes as noted:

Slow Scan Radio transmits is taking some time off. When it returns, it will transmit SSTV images and text modes Saturdays at 1300-1330 UTC on 6070 kHz and 7440 kHz via Channel 292 in Germany. The website is http://www.slowscanradio.com. Reception reports to email@example.com.
The Mighty KBC transmits to North America Sundays at 0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 8-10 pm EDT) on 9925 kHz, via Germany. A minute of MFSK is at about 0130 UTC. Reports to Eric: firstname.lastname@example.org . See also http://www.kbcradio.eu/ and https://www.facebook.com/TheMightyKbc/.
“This is a Music Show” is the newest addition to digital modes via analog shortwave. Most of the show is a music show, but the host transmits some MFSK text and image near the end of the broadcast. It’s transmitted on WRMI, 9395 kHz, Thursday 0130-0230 UTC (Wednesday evening in the Americas). Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show. email@example.com . www.instagram.com/thisisamusicshow/ www.twitter.com/ThisIsAMusicSho/
New York and Pennsylvania NBEMS nets. Most weekends, as KD9XB, I check in to the New York NBEMS (Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Software) net Saturday at 1200 UTC on 3584 kHz USB, and the Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1200 UTC on 3583 kHz USB (with out-of-state check-ins now starting at 1130 UTC). Check-ins are usually in Thor 22, and messages are in MFSK32 (PA NBEMS is experimenting with Thor 50×1 for messages). Messages generally use the Flmsg add-on to Fldigi. If you are a radio amateur in eastern North America, feel free to check in. Outside the region, use an SDR in the eastern USA to tune in and decode. You do not need Flmsg to check in, and most of the messages can be read without Flmsg. If you can decode the net, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and I will let them know you are tuned in.
