Shortwave Radiogram schedules


Hello friends

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.

Our transmission last Tuesday at 1530 UTC on 9955 kHz was not on the air due to some issue at WRMI. I am hearing WRMI now (2255 UTC) on 9955, so whatever the problem was, it's resolved now.

Our newest transmission from WRMI is tonight/tomorrow morning at 0530-0600 UTC on 7780 kHz. The signal was not great last week anywhere in the world, but let's see what happens this time. The 7780 might reach Europe, although reception is more likely in the Americas.

A video of last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram (program 282)  is provided by Scott in Ontario (Friday 1300 UTC). The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. The analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 283, 16-20 December 2022, in MFSK modes as noted:
 1:33  MFSK32: Program preview
 2:40  MFSK32: New Zealand enacts generational ban on tobacco
 7:00  MFSK64: Mistletoe is a nutrient-stealing parasite*
13:04  MFSK64: This week's images*
27:32  MFSK32: Closing announcements

The Mighty KBC transmits to North America Sundays at 0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 7-9 pm EST) on 5960 kHz, via Germany. A minute of MFSK is at about 0130 UTC.  Reports to Eric: See also and Starting January 1, The Mighty KBC will broadcast Sundays, 2200-2400 UTC, on 5950 kHz from WRMI Florida, replacing 5960 kHz.

“This is a Music Show” Most of the show is a music show, but the host transmits some MFSK-64 text and image near the end of the broadcast.  It’s transmitted on WRMI, Thursdays at 0200-0300 UTC on 5850 kHz (Wednesday evening in the Americas). Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show.    @ThisIsAMusicSho
