VOA Radiogram

Hello friends,
Please note new frequencies for VOA Radiogram effective 31 October 2015. They are listed in the schedule below.

Last weekend’s VOA Radiogram was received and decoded in Australia and New Zealand, including Perth, 18000 km from the North Carolina transmitter.
See details:

The Olivia 32-2000 segment usually (but not always) showed improvement over the MFSK32 text in difficult reception conditions. For most of you, reception is good enough that the MFSK32 text decodes 100%, and the Olivia 32-2000 is therefore not needed.

VOA Radiogram this weekend will be all MFSK32 except for the transmission schedule on Olivia 64-2000, mixed with the closing music.

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 133, 17018 October 2015, all in MFSK32 except where noted:

0136  Program preview

0248  Climate change and early springs*

0741  Toyota to eliminate most gasoline cars by 2050*

1342  New maps of Jupiter reveal interesting features*

2037  Video game use and school performance*

2659  Closing announcements*

28:00  Olivia 64-2000: Transmission schedule

Please send reception reports to

VOA Radiogram transmission schedule

All via the Edward R. Murrow transmitting station in North Carolina.

The Mighty KBC will transmit a minute of MFSK32 Sunday at this new time: 0130 UTC (Saturday 9:30 pm EDT) on the new frequency of 7395 kHz, via Germany. This weekend, the KBC broadcast to North America shifts to 2300-0200 UTC on the new 7395 kHz frequency. Eric would appreciate reports for this new frequency: .

Thank you for the many reports received for last week’s VOA Radiogram. I am now compiling the gallery for program 126 and will be sending those out over the weekend. I provide a link the gallery at Dropbox rather than attaching the pdf galley because it saves me several keystrokes, and it prevent a large attachment in your email inbox. You do not need to be registered with Dropbox to download the gallery. If you are invited to register, just close the box and proceed with the download.

I hope you can tune in and write in this weekend.
