Shortwave Radiogram weekend schedules

Hello friends,
This weekend, the final four minutes of Shortwave Radiogram will be devoted to an advertising campaign by Tecsun Radios Australia. Revenue from the advertising goes to WRMI to defray the considerable expense of transmitting, and helps keep shortwave alive.

The campaign includes a chance to win a Tecsun PL-880 radio. Preliminary messages will be this weekend and next weekend. The actual campaign, with text and images, begins the weekend of 21 December and continues through 25-27 January.

Last weekend's ASCII art was very successful (see examples below). We'll do it again in furture broadcasts.

Videos of last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram (program 76) are provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 2030 UTC) and Ralf in Germany (Saturday 1400 UTC). The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany,

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 77, 7-9 December 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:
