VOA Radiogram Schedule
Radio Free Asia will try digital text in its Cantonese Service on Friday, 5 September:
2258 UTC 15120 kHz (Saturday early morning in East Asia)
Both frequencies are via Tinian, Northern Mariana Islands. The mode is Olivia 32-2000 centered on 1500 Hz. Expect co-channel Chinese domestic radio. Reception reports to firstname.lastname@example.org .
VOA Radiogram this weekend will include interesting (and longer than usual) stories, one about an Internet conference in Turkey, the other about a major Russian news agency reverting to the name TASS. There will also be a brief item in Russian, so set Configure > Colors & Fonts to the UTF-8 character set.
Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 75, 6-7 September 2014, all in MFSK32 centered on 1500 Hz except for two surprise modes at the end of the show:
