Shortwave Radiogram, 28 November-1 December 2019
Last weekend’s experiment with Persian text was interesting and mostly successful. You can see a near perfect decode via an SDR in Kuwait (close to Iran) during the Sunday 2330-2400 UTC broadcast, 7780 kHz from WRMI Florida (12000 km). You can see Fldigi prints out the Persian right-to-left text by decoding from the videos and audio listed in the next paragraph.
This weekend’s show is in the usual MFSK32 and MFSK64, with nine images.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 128, 28 November-1 December 2019, in MFSK modes as noted:
1:36 MFSK32: Program preview
2:40 Converting brewery wast to charcoal*
7:40 MFSK64: Most Americans now see signs of climate change
12:31 This week’s images*
28:01 MFSK32: Closing announcements
The Mighty KBC transmits to North America Sundays at 0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 7-9 pm EST) on 5960 kHz, via Germany. A minute of MFSK is at about 0130 UTC. Reports to Eric: email@example.com . 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, 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 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 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, Thursdays at 0000 UTC (Wednesdays 7 pm EST) on 3536 kHz USB.
