VOA Radiogram during the weekend on 9-10 November 2013, will be a bit different. In addition to the usual MFSK modes, we will transmit Thor100. This is at the request of one of the Fldigi developers, who needs some actual (not simulated) shortwave reception of Thor100 for his testing.
We will continue our comparisons of the new long-interleave modes MFSK64L and MFSK128L with their short counterparts.
All of the modes to be broadcast this weekend are available in the latest version of Fldigi: 3.21.77, available from w1hkj.com.
Here is the lineup of modes for VOA Radiogram, program 32, 9-10 November 2013:
2:55 MFSK16: Program preview
4:35 MFSK32: Radio France International memorial and logo
1:30 MFSK64: VOA News re SR-32 airplane
