VOA Radiogram weekend schedule

Hello friends,

Shortwave reception conditions seem to be improving, at least in the northern hemisphere, judging from the many reception reports from last weekend. Even the transmission Sunday at 1930 UTC on 15670 kHz, which was problematic in December, provided these image decodes from Finland (left, by Juha) to California (right, by Eric) ...

This weekend, again, the MFSK32 RSID will be transmitted once, followed by a 30-second tuning signal.

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 99, 21-22 February 2015, all in MFSK except for the bonus mode:

 2:05  Program preview (now)
 3:04  US embassies to monitor air quality
 8:11  Philippines looks to geothermal power*
14:14  Clone Twitter accounts target RFE/RL, VOA*
20:36  Broadcasting Board of Governors meeting*
26:45  Closing announcements*
28:27  Olivia 16-500: Bonus mode of the week
