VOA Radiogram weekend schedule

Hello friends,

Last week’s news item in Olivia 32-2000 provided successful text decodes in some difficult reception conditions. This weekend, we will try a VOA News item in Olivia 16-2000. It’s faster, about 76 wpm, but with only 16 tones, it might not be as robust. The Olivia 16-2000 mode requires a custom setting in Fldigi.

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 94, 17-18 January 2015 -- all in MFSK32 except where noted:

1:42  Program preview
 2:50  WikiHouse simplifies home construction*
7:22  Taiwan protests new Chinese air routes*
13:53  Facebook app provides Internet to Colombia*
20:18  Olivia 16-2000: Proposed cuts in methane emissions
25:07  Closing announcements*
28:09  Thor16: Bonus mode of the week
