Shortwave Radiogram, 14-17 November 2019

In the past few weeks, reception of Shortwave Radiogram has been challenging during some of the transmission in some parts of the world. For this reason, we will add two slow-but-robust modes — Olivia 32-2000 and MFSK16 — to our usual MFSK32 and MFSK64 for this weekend. Each will begin with the RSID more the mode, so make sure your Fldigi RxID is on. If the RSID does not work, there will be five seconds of silence after the RSID to allow for a manual change of mode. For Olivia 32-2000, it’s best to turn off the squelch (SQL). Also make sure your receiver bandwidth is wide enough for this mode, which extends 2500 Hz from the carrier. For MFSK16, precise tuning of the audio frequency is necessary, although the Fldigi RxID probably will do this for you.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 126, 14-17 November 2019, in modes as noted:

 1:45  MFSK32: Program preview
       DW story on EU electronic waste law in …
 2:57  Olivia 32-2000 (turn squelch SQL off)
 7:47  MFSK16 (requires precise tuning)
12:36  MFSK32
17:05  MFSK64
19:30  MFSK64: This week’s images
28:19  MFSK32: Closing announcements

“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. . @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 1300 UTC on 3584 kHz USB, and the Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1300 UTC on 3583 kHz USB (with out-of-state check-ins now starting at 1230 UTC). Check-ins are usually in Thor 22, and messages usually are in MFSK32. 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 , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and I will let them know you are tuned in. USEast NBEMS Net: Please also note the USEast NBEMS Net, Thursdays at 2300 UTC (Friday 7 pm EDT) on 3536 kHz USB.
Thanks for your reception reports!
