Hello friends,

I am no longer inserting images into these weekly emails because AOL Mail (which now maintains emails from the verizon.net domain) does not seem to like them. A good place to see decoded images and other results is the Twitter account @SWRadiogram -- or if you are not on Twitter, https://twitter.com/swradiogram .
You can view, or listen, and decode last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram (program 45) at these productions kindly provided by listeners ...

Also see Roger's analysis of last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram, IBC, KBC, and Broad Spectrum Radio. And @Hal_Fi in California compared reception on 5850 and 7730 kHz Monday at 0800-0830 UTC using two (!) IC-7300's on the same antenna,thus controlling for date, time, location, conditions, antenna and receiver.

The first Shortwave Radiogram of the weekend is today (Friday) at 2030-2100 UTC on 7780 and 9455 kHz. This particular transmission lately has limited range,with best results in the northeast USA (and probably also the Canadian
Maritimes). Elsewhere, try to access an SDR in New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and nearby states and provinces.

This weekend's show will again be a combination of MFSK32 and MFSK64, with time for a surprise mode after the closing announcements.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 46, 4-7 May 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:

1:31 MFSK32: Program preview
2:38 Recycling oyster shells*
10:49 Scotland sets minimum price for alcohol*
18:02 MFSK64: Deutsche Welle's 65th anniversary*

Re:

Tarkoitin, ettà on erotettavissa nyt Nazranista, koska Nazran lÃhettÃà Al-Azmia, mutta huomaan puhuneeni sikÃli pÃtyÃ, ettà johan ne ennenkin lÃhettivÃt eri ohjelmaa, kuten HTE lokauksessaan vihjaakin:

Hello friends,

The first broadcast of Shortwave Radiogram program 45 is today (Friday) at 2030-2100 UTC on 7780 kHz from WRMI Florida. (Although reception tends to be difficult beyond eastern North America.)

Last weekend's experiment with six modes was interesting. Of the three fast Thor modes, Thor 100 seemed to be less successful than Thor 50x1 and Thor 50x2. Of course, in difficult reception conditions, our "go to" MFSK32 mode prevailed over all the faster modes. Zach in Alabama had difficult reception of the Monday
0800-0830 UTC show, with these results:
MFSK128: <10% MFSK64: <15% MFSK32: ~75% Thor50x1: <15% Thor50x2: <10% Thor100: <5%

Videos and audio of last weekend's (program 44) broadcast can be accessed as follows:

This weekend's Shortwave Radiogram will be simpler, with only two modes: MFSK32 and MFSK64.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 45, 27-30 April 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:

1:36 MFSK32: Program preview

Hello friends,

This weekend's first broadcast of Shortwave Radiogram is First broadcast is today at 2030 UTC on 7780 and 9455 kHz. Listeners in North America: Tell your bosses you need to go home early to decode the modes.
Response has been light to the Friday 2030 UTC and Monday 0800 UTC shows, most likely because of the inconvenient times and poor reception on Europe. I will try to find a new weekend slot for Shortwave Radiogram. If you have suggestions for convenient times and days, please let me know.

During the weekend, many listeners report results and post decoded images to the Shortwave Radiogram Twitter account, @SWRadiogram. If you are on Twitter, please join in. Include @SWRadiogram in your tweet. If you are not on Twitter, you can see what is posted at https://twitter.com/swradiogram .

During the past week, our Twitter group also posted SSTV images received from the International Space Station. I received only a few blurry images, but Merkouris in Greece decoded the entire set of SSTV images transmitted from the ISS.
During last weekend's broadcast, I was amazed by how well the fast MFSK128 and MFSK64 modes decoded even in less than ideal conditions. Thanks to listeners who produced videos of their reception and decodes (from which you can decode,though I was unsuccessful with the audio from DFS in Japan):

2330-2400 UTC Scott Ontario https://youtu.be/DR4SFTJXCIY

You can also access audio of my reception Monday at 0800-0830 UTC on 7730 kHz using an SDR in Australia. This is interesting not only because of the distance from the Florida transmitter, but also because of the wideband interference which proved to be a slight problem only for the MFSK128 mode -- plus the fuzzy images. (For more audio of Shortwave Radiogram, remember that Mark in the UK keeps an audio archive here.)

This weekend on Shortwave Radio, we will again transmit the sequence of MFSK128,64, and 32, each with an image. We will also experiment with three of the fastest Thor modes: Thor 50x1, Thor 50x2, and Thor 100. All three of these are available on TIVAR and AndFlmsg as well as Fldigi. An RSID will be sent at the beginning of each mode, but if the software does not switch automatically, five seconds will be provided after the RSID for a manual change.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 44, 20-23 April 2018, in modes as noted:

1:33 MFSK32: Program preview
2:53 MFSK128: UK media regulator probes RT's impartiality*
5:45 MFSK64: Volcanic rock traps CO2 and turns it inert*
11:36 MFSK32: Meteorite's diamonds might be from lost planet*
19:46 Thor 50x1: Brazilian aquifer may be diminishing
21:35 Thor 50x2: Continued
23:30 Thor 100: Continued
24:34 MFSK32: Image* and closing announcements
