Shortwave Radiogram schedules

Hello friends,
I have returned from Elkhart, Indiana, where I attended the annual meeting of the National Association of Shortwave Broadcasters. The demonstration of reception on a SonSet radio (inside a steel factory building), with decoding on nearby PCs and Android devices, was largely successful until the MFSK64 began. (Access to videos of program 48 is here.)
At the NASB meeting, I was surprised and honored to receive a nice framed certificate from NASB for "many years of contributions to the shortwave broadcasting and listening communities in the United States and around the world."
This weekend's Shortwave Radiogram will be simpler, with content in MFSK32 and MFSK64 only, including five MFSK images.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 49, 25-28 May 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:
 1:37  MFSK32: Program preview
 2:55  Famous Thai bay to close for four months*
 8:16  MFSK64: Planet-warming gases make food less nutritious*
12:42  Car dealers discourage purchase of electric cars*
17:40  Image of challenge coin for canceled Trump-Kim summit*
20:07  MFSK32: Chinese amateur radio satellites will include HF*
25:43  Closing announcements
