VOA Radiogram weekend schedule

Hello friends,

This weekend on VOA Radiogram, in addition to our usual MFSK32, we will conduct experiments with Olivia at different speeds.

In general, the Olivia modes are too slow for broadcasting. However, we should keep in mind that text via shortwave can be received unattended, for later retrieval, making speed less of an issue. Furthermore, the Olivia modes might be more capable of overcoming co-channel interference than our usual MFSK modes.

The speed of the Olivia modes increases as 1) bandwidth increases and 2) the number of tones decreases. However, as the number of tones decreases, the robustness of the mode, i.e. the ability to decode in difficult reception conditions, decreases.

On our shortwave broadcast channel, we will use the maximum 2000 Hz bandwidth. We will transmit about three minutes of content in each of Olivia 64-2000 (29 wpm), 32-2000 (48 wpm), 16-2000 (76 wpm), and 8-2000 (104 wpm). As the number of tones decreases, and the Olivia modes become faster, how much does performance deteriorate?  

There are RSIDs for each of these Olivia modes. If you change modes manually, you will have to use the Custom menu for the 32-, 16-, and 8-tone versions. Even if the signal is so bad that you can barely hear it, change the modes manually at the appointed time, and you might see the text. Because of latency in the Olivia modes, text will not begin to display until a few seconds after the tones begin.

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 48, 1-2 March 2014:

1:34  MFSK32: Program preview (now)

VOA Radiogram transmission schedule
(all days and times UTC):
Sat 0930-1000 5745 kHz
Sat 1600-1630 17860 kHz

Sun 1930-2000 15670 kHz
All via the Edward R. Murrow transmitting station in North Carolina.

MFSK image preambles

Last weekend's VOA Radiogram, program 47, brought good decoding results in many parts of the world. One problem noticed by some listeners is that if the preamble to an MFSK image is not received correctly, none of the picture is visible. At, I will post mp3 audio of both of this weekend's images. You can "borrow" the preamble from the mp3 recording and "graft" it into a recording of your reception of VOA Radiogram 48.

The 0930 UTC broadcast

The new broadcast Saturday at 0930-1000 on 5745 kHz is becoming very difficult to hear in Europe as we approach spring (although it doesn't feel like spring here in the USA). I was hoping for reports of this broadcast from the Asia-Pacific region, but so far have received none. This past weekend, I did receive my first report from New Zealand, but it was for the transmission Sunday at 1930-2000 UTC on 15670 kHz -- apparently via a very long path from North Carolina.  

The 0930 UTC broadcast does provide very good reception to the North American west coast, so if you live in western North America, try unattended reception while you sleep. 

In the next few weeks, we will probably change this broadcast to another time and frequency. This might be Sunday at 1400 UTC on a higher frequency receivable in Europe and perhaps farther east.

MFSK64 on The Mighty KBC

The Mighty KBC will transmit another minute of MFSK64 Saturday at about 1230 UTC on 6095 kHz, and Sunday at about 0130 UTC (Saturday evening 8:30 pm EST) on 7375 kHz. Reports to Eric at . The Mighty KBC schedule and other information are at

I'll now begin answering your reports from last weekend. I hope to hear from you this weekend.

Tribute to Family Radio Shortwave: The Final Years with Walter Lemmon

In the continuing saga about the long and illustrious history of the shortwave station that finally  became WYFR and then WRMI, we pick up the chain of events in the middle of the year 1953.  At this stage, station WRUL, as it was at the time, was on the air at Hatherly Beach with five transmitters:-
                        3 @ 50 kW, 1 @ 20 kW and 1 @ 7 or 80 kW (with or without a huge power amplifier).

            On June 30, 1953, the 5 WRUL transmitters were officially released from service with the Voice of America and the station was reverted back to regular programming under its ownership with Walter Lemmon.  The usage of the Boston studios had ended two years earlier and WRUL had established a New York office at 1 East 57th Street, which according to the city address list, is the location for the voluminous fashion icon Louis Vuitton store.  A few blocks away was the location for the original production and on-air studios of the Voice of America.                    
            At the same time as WRUL was released from VOA service in mid 1953, so also was the Westinghouse shortwave station WBOS at Hull, located at the end of the Nantasket Peninsula out from Boston.  Westinghouse then closed this station and sold the equipment to WRUL at Hatherly Beach.          The leftover equipment from the two transmitters WBOS & WPIT at Hull was incorporated into the WRUL facility, though never as a separate transmitter unit.  At this stage, WRUL was no longer an official relay station for the Voice of America with programming from VOA and the Armed Forces Radio Service.
            Then, in 1960, the 65 year old Walter Lemmon relinquished control of the station, selling it off to Metro Media in New York.  At this stage, the same five transmitters were still in use:-
                        3 @ 50 kW, 1 @ 20 kW and 1 @ 80 kW.

            MetroMedia, that is the Metropolitan Broadcasters of New York, also owned mediumwave WNEW, as well as a small network of radio and television stations across the country.  They transferred the studios for their new shortwave acquisition into 4 West 58th Street, the location of the famed Paris Theatre, quite near to Central Park.  This new suite of radio studios was titled the Worldwide Communication Center.
            However, MetroMedia retained the usage of the Hatherly Beach shortwave station for just three years only after which they sold it off to the International Educational Broadcasting Corporation IEBC in Salt Lake City Utah for $1¾ million.  This change of ownership was effective on October 10, 1962, and a new on air slogan was introduced, Radio New York World Wide, though the old and familiar callsign WRUL was still retained.  At this stage, the same five transmitters were on the air, though they were now listed as 4 @ 50 kW and 1 @ 80 kW.  A total of eleven antenna systems were in use.
            Soon after IEBC obtained WRUL at Hatherly Beach, this organization morphed into Bonneville International both of which had close ties with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, the Mormons. 
            Interestingly, there was a previous attempt on the part of the Mormon Church to go shortwave and this was back in the year 1939.  At that time, the experimental shortwave broadcasting station W9XAA was on the air in Chicago with a 500 watt transmitter located at suburban Downer’s Grove.              This shortwave station was owned by the Chicago Federation of Labor, who also operated the well known mediumwave station WCFL.  The Chicago Federation of Labor in Chicago wanted to sell its co-owned shortwave station W9XAA to mediumwave KSL in Salt Lake City Utah. 
            They lodged a request with the FCC to sell the station, increase its power, and move it to Saltair, near Salt Lake City.  However, in September 1939, the FCC denied this request; and so this first attempt on the part of the Mormon Church to establish a shortwave station came to nothing.
            Returning to the story of the Boston shortwave station, we might add, that in the year 1964, the long standing Adventist radio program, Voice of Prophecy with the illustrious Dr. H. M. S. Richards was on the air from the shortwave station WRUL twice each Sunday.  At both 1200 & 1900 GMT, as it was in those days or UTC as it is today, this half hour program was noted on all four active transmitters in parallel, on 11950 15385 15440 & 17760 kHz.
            The vigorous radio entrepreneur Walter Lemmon was born in New York City on February 3, 1896, and on March 1, 1967, he passed to his rest at Old Greenwich Connecticut, age 71. 
            He gained a B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering at Columbia University in New York City.  As 
Lieutenant Walter Lemmon with the Coast Guard he was appointed as a wireless operator onboard the navy vessel USS “George Washington”, and he also served as Wireless Operator for President Woodrow Wilson at the Versailles Peace Conference in France in 1919.  While the ship was anchored in port at Brest Harbor in coastal France, he made a series of experimental radio broadcasts containing news about the Peace Conference. 
            On the return journey across the Atlantic, Walter Lemmon aboard the “George Washington” presented several broadcasts of recorded music for the benefit of nearby ships and for listeners along the eastern seaboard of the United States.  When the ship was still 300 miles from port, he persuaded President Wilson to make a special July 4 radio broadcast to the United States.
            Wilson did indeed make the brief speech in between music items during the Independence Day broadcast, though he stood so far away from the microphone that his words were not heard clearly in the broadcast.  A news reporter subsequently re-read the speech which this time was transmitted quite clearly.
            Ten years later, Walter Lemmon became the general manager for shortwave station W2XAL in Coytesville New Jersey, a station that he bought two years later and ultimately transferred to Boston in association with TV experimenter Hollis Baird.  Lemmon manager the Boston shortwave station WRUL for a period of nearly 30 years, running from 1931 right up to the year 1960, developing it into one of the world’s largest and most powerful shortwave stations in the middle of last century.
            Walter Lemmon invented the 3-gang tuning condenser which he sold to RCA for $1 million; and he also invented the radiotypewriter which enabled typed messages to be transmitted by radio and instantly received on a similar typewriter anywhere in the world.  He was also an executive with the IBM Corporation; and in addition to his management of shortwave WRUL, Lemmon was the manager for an early FM station, WGCH 95.9 MHz in Greenwich Connecticut.
            Walter Lemmon sold his shortwave station WRUL in 1960, he went into retirement at the age of  64, and died seven years later.  By this time, his shortwave station was now on the air under the new callsign WNYW.  
            But that’s a story for next time.

Australian Radio History

A most remarkable compendium of radio history comes from Dr. Bruce Carty, under the title, Australian Radio History.  This lively and colorful presentation of more then 100 pages is amply illustrated with early radio memorabilia that vividly portrays the more than 100 years of collective wireless and radio history throughout the continent of Australia.
            An introductory timeline, stretching from the ancient 1906 right up to the modern 2009, gives a progressive view of wireless and radio events throughout the Commonwealth, beginning with Australia’s first official wireless communication (across Bass Strait to Tasmania) and ending with the introduction of digital TV in five state capital cities.  Also listed is a brief life sketch of many of the leading radio personnel in the early days of radio history in Australia, 
            Several feature articles tell the story of early significant events in full detail.  Among these interesting feature articles is one that lists and describes early radio receivers manufactured by the well known radio company in Australia AWA.  This listing in the year 1926 describes the crystal set receiver as well as the more recently developed superheterodyne receiver.
            Another feature article tells the story of a portable shortwave transmitter in use for remote broadcasts by mediumwave station 2UW in Sydney in 1932.  This transmitter with its associated equipment was carried by two men, and the occasion was the long list of celebrations for the official opening of one of Australia’s major tourist icons, the Sydney Harbour Bridge.   
            Another feature article tells the story of an important amateur radio broadcasting station in Brisbane back during the 1920s.  This station, 4CM, was owned and operated by Dr. Val McDowell with 20 watts on 800 m (375 kHz longwave) and it was heard throughout eastern Australia as well as in New Zealand, and also on Ocean Island out in the Pacific some 2,000 miles distant.
            Every mediumwave callsign ever in use in Australia, all 700 of them, is listed chronologically by state, with an outline history of each station; experimental, amateur broadcast and fully licensed radio broadcasting stations.  We take a look at some of the interesting facts that Dr. Bruce Carty has listed in his new book:-

              * Australia’s first licensed radio broadcasting station was not 2SB-2BL as often quoted but rather           station 2CM which was granted License No 1.  
              * All the fish in the aquarium at 2KA died during the first day of operation at their new studios in              Penrith, New South Wales.
              * Radio station 6WF in Perth opened with the use of a 10 kW transmitter obtained from Radio                Luxembourg in Europe.  The original 6WA transmitter also came from Radio                     Luxembourg.
              * Australian personnel have established radio broadcasting stations at 6 different locations in                  Antarctica.
              * Station 2UW in Sydney operated a relay station 2UX in Wagga Wagga with all programming                 on relay from 2UW via the well known shortwave station VK2ME.
            * Station 2BH in Broken Hill relayed some of the programming from 5AD in Adelaide which was             recorded and sent by train to Broken Hill.
            * In 1946, station 2XL in Cooma reported that a railway train was lost and they asked any                         listeners if they knew where the train was located to report the information to the radio                  station.
            * In 1933, 3KZ in Melbourne used all available hair dryers from one of their client advertisers in                order to keep their transmitter on the air during floods.
              * The announcer at 3AK in Melbourne lowered a rope from the open studio window to which the           morning newspaper was tied.  He retrieved the paper each morning and from its pages                read the bulletin of early morning news.
              * All local train services were suspended when the tower at 3WR Shepparton fell across the                   railway line in 1934.
              * The announcer at station 5CL in Adelaide held the microphone outside the studio window to                 broadcast the hourly chimes from the clock on the GPO building.

            Throughout the book, there are many illustrations, some in black & white and some in color.   On an introductory page, you will find the reproduction of  the front page of a brochure advertising Australia’s first serious attempt at radio broadcasting from a train; the Great White Train with station 2XT aboard.  There is a photo of the good ship “Kanimbla” with its 50 watt broadcasting station 9MI aboard. 
            You will also find a QSL card in color from Australia’s first radio broadcasting station station 2CM; a photo of 3YB aboard the motor vehicle and the railway train; a reproduction of the motor vehicle license plate showing 7HO on 864 kHz; and a photo of the mobile broadcasting station “in the islands”, 9AO.

            The author of “Australian Radio History”, Dr. Bruce Carty, has spent a lifetime in Australian radio in several different states and he writes from a rich knowledge and experience in the radio scene.  We are grateful also, Dr. Carty, for your acknowledgement of our DX host, Dr. Adrian Peterson, in your  informative pages.  Dr. Carty may be contacted at

Focus on Asia Philippines: Naval Wireless Station at Cavite

The Cavite Peninsula on the edge of Manila Bay in the Philippines has played a pivotal role throughout the lengthy eras of Philippine history.  The Cavite Peninsula is located on the edge of modern Metro Manila and the name comes into the Spanish language from an ancient word in the Tagalog language, Kawit, meaning a hook, which is the geographic shape of the peninsula.
The earliest settlers on Cavite came from Borneo Sulu some time during the dim distant past; and because of its deep water anchorage, this location became a moorage for ocean going Chinese junks involved in international trade.  The Spanish began their rule of the Philippines at Cavite in 1571; and ¾ century later, the Dutch came and made their attack against the Philippines at this same location.  The British followed in 1672 with an attack on the Philippines at Cavite, though their rule lasted for only two years.
The American era began on May 1, 1898 with an attack against the Spanish at Cavite.  Nearly ½  a century later, the Japanese invaded the Philippines and their attack against Cavite itself began on December 10, 1941, just three days after Pearl Harbor.  A little less than three years later, the Americans returned to Cavite; and ultimately the area was officially handed over to the Philippine government on September 1, 1971.
It was back in the Spring of 1903 that the American navy procured 20 sets of Slaby-Arco wireless equipment from Germany, both transmitters and receivers.  One of these sets of wireless equipment was installed at the American navy base at Cavite, and  a year later the station was taken into regular service for Morse Code traffic, on September 5, 1904.
The original callsign back then was UT, though this was changed on October 1, 1908 to the more familiar internationally recognized callsign NPO.  Back then, the transmitter was described as a composite unit rated at 5 kW and radiating on 500 kHz.
During the year 1915, two tall towers were erected at the American navy base at Cavite and these were 141 feet and 134 feet tall.  The operating power was increased from 5 kW up to 25 kW and station NPO identified as Radio Sangley, honoring the name of the American Naval Station, Sangley Point.
In the early 1920s, three new self supporting radio towers were erected at Cavite, each at 600 feet tall.  When these came into use for supporting the antenna system at NPO, this naval radio station was sending out in Morse Code 2,000 words daily on longwave13900 metres (21.5 kHz) to the navy receiver station in San Francisco.  It is stated that these three tall towers were visible from Manila City, ten miles distant.
  The usage of shortwave for international radio communication was implemented at the Cavite radio station in the early 1920s.  For example, it is recorded in the year 1926 that station NPO was utilizing two shortwave channels 3548 and 4283 kHz.  Then, in 1929, an additional six shortwave transmitters were installed at NPO, each at 10 kW.
During the 1930s, the PanAm Seaplane Clippers, passenger and freight service, called at Cavite once each week in their flights between the United States and several Pacific locations.  A color postcard from this era shows the PanAm Clipper moored at Cavite, with the skyline in the distance.
On December 10, 1941, a Japanese air raid badly damaged the radio station at Cavite setting the radio station building on fire, and damaging one of the tall towers.
Beginning just five days later, on December 15, 1941, eight daily special programs were beamed to the Philippines on shortwave for rebroadcast via 12 mediumwave and shortwave stations in Manila.  Some of these relay programs were picked up at Cavite and rebroadcast on their transmitters also.  Then when the Japanese took over Manila, Cavite continued to re-broadcast the program  information from California for a few additional days, apparently from temporary facilities.
Soon afterwards, on January 2 of the next year, 1942, the order was given to evacuate Cavite.  When the Americans returned three years later, they found the three towers still standing.
The famous wireless station at Sangley Point, the American navy base at Cavite in the Philippines, is an example of  the widespread network of huge wireless stations established by America in strategic locations around our globe.  As the well known writer and editor stated in Popular Communications a few years ago, “The Cavite station was a most historic wireless facility, a well known landmark.”  That statement came from the pen (or maybe the typewriter) of the late Tom Kneitel, writing under the pseudonym Alice Brannigan.

Czech Republic longwave to close by end of February

Czech Republic

270  Czech longwave Topolna

A reminder that there are just two weeks left for you to listen to the Czech Republic on longwave, as it is marked for closure at the end of February. The ending of transmissions on 270 will leave a completely empty
channel across Europe, presumably for the first time on either longwave or mediumwave since the early days of radio.

Recently, I've noticed that they cut the transmitter for its overnight break without ceremony either at exactly 2300 (sometimes on the very last pip) and sometimes in the middle of the 2300 news. I don't know which
sounds more unprofessional!

Running on reduced power, it is now "only" 650 kW rather than 1.5 MW. The directional pattern - WNW-ESE - puts the UK in the best part of the beam, so an easy listen here on a portable in these winter evenings.

BBC World Service to reduce shortwave transmissions

The BBC World Service will further reduce its shortwave transmissions next year as part of a £15m savings drive which staff have been warned will be a "real stretch".

The money will be used to invest in new TV and digital services, part of a programme called Invest to Innovate.

An extra £6.5m is being pumped into the World Service's budget this year, alongside an extra £1.5m of savings, helping to create 130 jobs. New initiatives include a global version of Radio 1's Newsbeat.

But the BBC's director of global news, Peter Horrocks, said further savings would be required in the future.

Horrocks told staff on Tuesday: "There will be a respite on editorial job cuts, for a year, but we will need significant further editorial and organisational savings in subsequent years.

Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 17 - 23 February 2014

Solar activity reached moderate levels with two M-class flares observed during the week. An M3/Sn was observed on 20 Feb at 0756 UTC from Region 1976 (S15, L=320, class/area=Cho/270 on 18 February). A Type II radio sweep (estimated shock velocity 915 km/s), a Tenflare (420 sfu), and an asymmetric full-halo coronal
mass ejection (CME) were observed with this event. Most of the ejecta with this cornal mass ejection (CME) appeared to be directed westward with a minor Earthward component. On the same day, Region 1982 (S10, L=207, class/area=Ekc/570) produced a C3/Sf flare at 20/0335 UTC associated with a Type II radio sweep (estimated shock velocity 1432 km/s), a Type IV radio sweep, and an asymmetric full-halo CME with most of the ejected directed eastward with a minor Earthward component. Region 1982 was the largest region on the disk during the week, the most magnetically complex (beta-gamma), and the most productive. It was responsible for 11 C-class events and 30 optical flares. 

Old Region 1967 (S12, L=12) was responsible for a C7 flare at 22/1550 UTC and was at least partially responsible for a long-duration M1 flare at 23/0610 UTC. During the M-flare, GOES-15 SXI imagery suggested that old Regions 1967 and 1977 (S10, L=294)flared simultaneously. Subsequent SOHO LASCO C2 coronagraph imagery
showed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) from both region locations with the larger of the two coming from behind the west limb. Throughout the week, old Region 1967 was the source of many CMEs while behind the east limb. 

In addition to the CMEs associated with the flares, a 45-degree filament erupted from the southeast quadrant during 18/0015 - 0158 UTC associated with an Earth-directed, asymmetric, full-halo coronal mass ejection (CME). Analysis of coronagraph imagery suggested the ejecta was moving at 695 km/s, with most directed southward. 

The greater than 10 MeV proton flux at geosynchronous orbit reached the S1 (Minor) threshold at 20/0850 UTC, reached a peak of 22 pfu at 20/0925 UTC, and dropped below the S1 event threshold at 20/1125 UTC as a result of the M3/Sn flare at 20/0756 UTC from Region 1976. 

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels on 20/0906 UTC and again on 21/1700 UTC. High levels were subsequently observed again on the 22nd and 23rd. Peak flux during the week was 2780 pfu observed on 23/1455 UTC. 

Geomagnetic field activity reached major storm levels as successive coronal mass ejections battered the magnetosphere during the past week and produced the most extended period of planetary major storm conditions since June 29, 2013. ACE data indicated the arrival of a CME at approximately 19/0309 UTC, likely associated with a faint full-halo CME on Feb 16. Wind speed jumped from about 380 to 500
km/s with the arrival and remained elevated for the rest of the period (peak 546 km/s at 19/1747 UTC). IMF Bt (total field intensity) increased from 8 to 15 nT with the CME arrival and remained enhanced for the rest of the day (peak 18 nT at 19/0658 UTC), with a gradual decrease after approximately 19/1500 UTC. The
Bz component of the IMF was southward at around -8 nT prior to the arrival, then became further southward following the arrival (maximum reading of -15 nT at 19/0358 UTC). IMF Bz remained southward until approximately 19/0830 UTC, then became variable until approximately 19/1300 UTC, followed by mostly northward Bz conditions. IMF Phi data indicated a variable solar-sector orientation during the period. EPAM data showed a gradual increase during the latter half of the day, likely indicating the approach of the CME observed on Feb 18. In response to the arrival of the CME, the magnetic field reached major storm conditions during 19/0300 - 1500 UTC, with severe storm levels detected at high latitudes. Activity decreased to quiet to unsettled levels after 19/1500 UTC. 

A second shock arrived at approximately 20/0251 UTC, most likely associated with the filament eruption on 18 Feb. Solar wind speed at the ACE spacecraft jumped from about 500 to 640 km/s and was accompanied by a 6 nT increase in IMF Bt, and a southward turn of the Bz component of the IMF (minimum -14 nT at 20/0507 UTC). Wind speed peaked at 743 km/s at 20/0440 UTC with this CME passage, followed by a gradual decrease to about 500 km/s by the end of the period. A geomagnetic sudden impulse was observed at 20/0329 UTC (31nT, Boulder USGS magnetometer) associated with the CMEs arrival at Earth. Major storm levels prevailed from 03-12Z, followed by a minor storm period. Severe storm cinditons were recorded at some
high-latitude stations. 

Finally, the 20 Feb CME likely arrived around 23/0230 UTC. Solar wind speed was initially steady in the 420 - 440 km/s range and increased to around 520 km/s during transient passage. Total field strength values were steady near 5 nT and began a slow rise to 11 nT during CME passage while the Bz component remained predominately north throughout the period. The phi angle began the period in a negative (toward) sector and underwent minor rotation and variability to a positive (away) sector during transient passage. The CME arrival produced unsettled to active geomagnetic conditions with minor to major storm conditions for half the day at high latitudes. 

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 24 February - 22 March 2014

Solar activity is expected to be at low to moderate levels, with high levels of activity likely through 16 March, with the return of Old Regions 1967 (S13, L=112) at the beginning of the period, and 1974 (S12, L=354) after 03 March. STEREO EUVI imagery suggests these regions have maintained their levels of activity. 

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit, however, the threat will increase during the transit of Old Region 1974, particularly after 09 March. 

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected to be at normal to moderate levels for most of the forecast period. High flux levels are anticipated on 09-10 March in response to a coronal hole high speed stream. 

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels in the absence of any transient activity. There is a chance for active conditions 28 Feb-01 March in response to a positive polarity coronal hole high speed stream. A slight chance of active levels exists on 09 March in response to another high speed stream.

Ecuador, Ecuador, HCJB/LV de los Andes
New name for station is Reach Beyond
After 82 years HCJB as an organisation is changing its name to Reach Beyond.
This will include the Australian shortwave station but that transition will happen
over the next 12 months. Right now the station is still called HCJB Australia.
The call letters HCJB will (eventually) only occur in Ecuador, South America where
the whole broadcasting mission began.
