Shortwave Radiogram, Program 358


Hello friends

Heat has overtaken much of North America. Here in northern Virginia, the outside temperature reached 90F/32C, which was our cue finally to turn on the air conditioner -- more for the humidity than for the actual temperature. Fortunately, a faulty condensate pump -- it carries all that humidity from the AC to a drain pipe -- was replaced just in time for the present heat wave.

As for Shortwave Radiogram, I don't think the heat will have much effect on shortwave reception, unless maybe receiver and antenna components fail because of excessive temperatures.

A video of last week's Shortwave Radiogram (program 357) is provided by Scott in Ontario (Wednesday 1330 UTC). The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is provided by Roger in Germany.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 358, 13-19 June 2024, in MFSK modes as noted:
