VOA Radiogram weekend schedule

Hello friends,

As we approach autumn in the northern hemisphere, shortwave propagation is changing. The 17860 and 15670 kHz transmissions may become more difficult to hear in Europe. On the other hand, last weekend, Chris in New Zealand received the 15670 kHz transmission with a 100% decode (including the Russian).

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 76, 13-14 September 2014, all MFSK32 except for surprise modes at the end of the show:

.1:35  Program preview
 2:33  "Internet slowdown" campaign, with image
10:19  Ozone layer may be recovering, with image
17:26  New VOA Russian TV program, with image
26:09  Closing announcements

Please send reception reports to
