Weekend VOA Radiogram Schedules
This weekend's VOA Radiogram will include an invitation to a meeting of shortwave DXers in Mexico. Most of it is in Spanish, so make sure you have the UTF-8 character set selected in Fldigi Configure > Colors & Fonts. After that, back to English for interesting science news from the VOA newsroom, accompanied by interesting images.
Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 68, 19-20 July 2014 (MFSK32):
1:36 Program preview
2:43 Encuentro Nacional Diexista in Mexico, with image
7:19 Water wheel cleans Baltimore waterways, with image

VOA Radiogram transmission schedule
(all days and times UTC):
Sat 0930-1000 5745 kHz
Sat 1600-1630 17860 kHz
Sun 0230-0300 5745 kHz
Sun 1930-2000 15670 kHz
All via the Edward R. Murrow transmitting station in North Carolina.
The Mighty KBC will transmit a minute of MFSK64, including a great photo of a yellow Corvette, Saturday at about 1130 UTC on 6095 kHz and Sunday at about 0130 UTC (Saturday 9:30 pm EDT) on 9925 kHz. Both frequencies are via Germany. Reception reports for KBC should be sent to email@example.com .
If you are in North America, reception of KBC's 6095 kHz frequency is generally possible only via this web-controlled SDR receiver at the University of Twente in the Netherlands: http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
This receiver is also useful for VOA Radiogram if you are in the skip zone for 17860 and 15670 kHz (look for me in the chat area).
Thanks for your reception reports from last weekend. I'll try to answer the reports from program 67 before the last airplay of program 68 signs off this weekend. That's my general deadline.
I hope you can tune in and write in this weekend.
