Shortwave Radiogram schedules


Hello friends

Here in the Washington DC area, we are finally enjoying some relief from the heat and humidity. Our windows were open all day today. Nighttime temperatures will be below 70F (21C), for the famous "sleeping weather." We will still experience one or two heat waves, because around here, September is just another month of summer.

Our friends in Texas and the southwest USA are still enduring high temperatures above 100F (38C). The humidity is lower, but hot is hot.

This weekend, all the text will be in English. No exotic alphabets this time. And there will be nine images, 1 x MFSK32 and 8 x MFSK64.

A video of last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram (program 266)  is provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 1300 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 267, 11-16 August 2022, in MFSK modes as noted:

 1:35  MFSK32: Program preview
 2:41  MFSK32: World's tallest timber building*
