The new, additional transmission of Shortwave Radiogram Saturdays at 1330-1400 UTC is now confirmed and added to the schedule. This broadcast should be especially convenient for European listeners. The 15770 kHz frequency from WRMI Florida has lately delivered a good signal into Europe. In fact, it has also been heard as far east as Kuwait and as far south as New Zealand. Unfortunately, it is usually inaudible here in the eastern USA.
Videos of last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram (program 133) are provided by 2010DFS in Japan (Sunday 0800 UTC on 7730 kHz), Scott in Ontario (Sunday 0800 UTC on 5850 kHz), HFZone in Virginia and Jeff in Oklahoma (both Sunday 2330 UTC). The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.
This weekend's show is in the usual MFSK32 and MFSK64, with 10 images.
Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 133, 10-12 January 2020, in MFSK modes as noted:
1:40 MFSK32: Program preview
2:48 Helium is the new "oil" for western Canada*

New York and Pennsylvania NBEMS nets. Most weekends, as KD9XB, I check in to the New York NBEMS (Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Software) net Saturday at 1300 UTC on 3584 kHz USB, and the Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1300 UTC on 3583 kHz USB (with out-of-state check-ins now starting at 1230 UTC). Check-ins are usually in Thor 22, and messages are in MFSK32. Messages generally use the Flmsg add-on to Fldigi. If you are a radio amateur in eastern North America, feel free to check in. Outside the region, use an SDR in the eastern USA to tune in and decode. You do not need Flmsg to check in, and most of the messages can be read without Flmsg. If you can decode the net, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and I will let them know you are tuned in. USEast NBEMS Net: Please also note the USEast NBEMS Net, Thursdays at 0000 UTC (Wednesdays 7 pm EST) on 3536 kHz USB.
Thanks for your reception reports!
