I forgot to mention last week that for listeners in most of North America, VOA Radiogram is now on one hour earlier by local time, now that Daylight time has reverted to Standard time. The UTC times are the same.
Last week’s broadcast Sunday at 1930-2000 UTC on 15670 kHz was again inaudible in Europe. But, again, it provided good text and images to the western USA.
Please let me know if you have any thoughts about changing VOA Radiogram times and frequencies.
Roger suggested transmitting “nonsense data” at 360 Hz, in addition to the primary data at 1500 Hz, to see if it prevents the intermodulation that causes the incorrect audio frequency. Or maybe it will make it worse. In any case, this should be fun.
Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 190, 19-20 November 2016, all in MFSK32 except where noted:
