VOA Radiogram, The Mighty KBC 19-20 April 2014

Last weekend’s experiment with the “mystery mode,” MFSK8 as it turned out, was mostly successful.

This weekend, we’ll repeat the contact information and schedule in MFSK8, …

Voice of Russia in DRM

Con l’introduzione delle nuove schedule in DRM ho cercato di monitorare le trasmissione della Voice of Russia, campatibilmente ai miei impegni lavorativi.
