Shortwave Radiogram schedules

Hello friends,
As we approach the winter solstice, interesting opportunities for reception of Shortwave Radiogram emerge. The Sunday 0600-0630 UTC broadcast on 7730 kHz from WRMI in Florida is reaching Europe, New Zealand, and Australia, even though it is directed to western North America. 

This weekend the program will be all in MFSK32, with five images. The show will include some text in Dari, so your Fldigi character set should be UTF-8.

 Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 21, 11-12 November 2017, all in MFSK32:
