The mystery MFSK32 signal returned last weekend. It was heard and decoded by VOA Radiogram listeners throughout Europe just before and after the Saturday 1600-1630 UTC broadcast on 17580 kHz. Last weekend it was upper sideband. If the signal returns this weekend, any reception before 1600 UTC might be complicated by the carrier from the North Carolina transmitter, which usually starts around 1545 UTC. If you hear and/or decode the mystery signal, please let me know.
Radio Pushka (Радио Пушка) is a new addition to the Channel 292 schedule on 6070 kHz, with some MFSK32 and SSTV. See the schedule below.
