Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 120, 3-6 October 2019, in MFSK modes as noted:
The introduction will be in MFSK32. Then there will be a change to MFSK64 for ten images of birds from various parts of the world.
The images will be somewhat larger than those we usually transmit on Shortwave Radiogram. Because of this, slant in the images may be more noticeable.
If a triangle forms along the left side of the image, try an Rx PPM correction of (+)100, and adjust from there. If the triangle form from the right side, try an Rx PPM correction of -100 and adjust from there.
In Fldigi: Configure > Sound Card > Settings: Set Rx PPM …
Closing announcements will be in MFSK32.
Please send reception reports to firstname.lastname@example.org

“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, Thursdays at 0100-0200 UTC on 5850 kHz and 0130-0230 UTC on 9395 kHz (Wednesday evening in the Americas). Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show. firstname.lastname@example.org . www.instagram.com/thisisamusicshow/ www.twitter.com/ThisIsAMusicSho/ @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 email@example.com , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and I will let them know you are tuned in. USEast NBEMS Net: Please also note the USEast NBEMS Net, Wednesdays at 2300 UTC (7 pm EDT) on 3536 kHz USB. I will try to check in to this net more frequently.jjjj
