See the section below on
The Mighty KBC for an interesting experiment this weekend.
weekend's experiments with QR codes were interesting and mostly successful. I
failed to inform you, however, that a monospace font (Courier, for
example) is required for the QR codes sent via UTF-8 block elements to decode
correctly. See some examples here ...

Mighty KBC will transmit a minute of MFSK32 this weekend, but at a new
time. KBC's broadcast to North America is Saturday 2300 UTC to Sunday 0200 UTC
(Saturday evening 6:00-9:00 pm EST in North America), on 7395 kHz via Germany.
From 0158 to 0200 UTC, Radio Romania International transmits its interval signal
also on 7395 kHz for its French broadcast beginning at 0200 UTC. This
creates a co-channel situation between KBC and RRI. The MFSK32 transmission
is therefore moved from 0128 to 0158 UTC to see if the text and image can
survive the interference.
If you have an
Android device, the TIVAR decoding app is available here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/fldigi/files/AndFlmsg/TIVAR/ . For PCs, Fldigi is
available here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/fldigi/files/ . See w1hkj.com for
you for your reception reports. I am falling farther behind in answering your
reports. The gallery for program 132 is prepared, and today I will get
started with the accompanying emails. I hope you can tune in and write in this
