VOA Radiogram schedule

Hello friends,

VOA Radiogram this weekend includes an interesting mix of VOA news stories – plus an image via RFE/RL.

There is a surprise mode, but it will be on three different audio frequencies. So, in Fldigi: Configure > IDs > RsID – check the “Searches passband” box (at least for this weekend).

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 81, 18-19 October 2014:

1:37  Program preview
 2:46  WakaWaka solar LED light, with image
8:41  Controlling invasive species by eating them, with image
16:13  Balloons send leaflets to North Korea, with image
24:00  Image: Drone disrupts Serbia-Albania football match
26:59  Closing announcements
28:05  Surprise mode at three audio frequencies

Please send reception reports to .

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 text transmissions on Radio Martí will probably conclude before this weekend. Audio samples from my house in northern Virginia, characterized by heavy jamming noise but a low Radio Martí signal level (because I’m too close to the North Carolina transmitter site) can be found at . You can try decoding from these audio samples.

The Mighty KBC will transmit a minute of MFSK64 Saturday at about 1130 UTC on 6095 kHz and Sunday at about 0130 UTC (Saturday 9:30 pm EDT) on 7375 kHz. Both frequencies are via Germany.

Thanks for all your reception reports from last weekend, which I will begin answering on Friday.
