Most of Europe moves its clocks forward this Sunday, 27 October. The WRMI
transmissions will remain at their present UTC times, so they will be an hour
earlier by local time in Europe. WINB usually keeps its analog 9265 kHz program
schedule fixed to US Eastern time, which will move back one hour on 3 November.
Programming on the WINB DRM frequency will probably stay with UTC. The WINB DRM
frequency for Shortwave Radiogram will be 13690 kHz as of 7 October (1500-1530
In addition to time changes, shortwave propagation is changing,
too. Last weekend I heard Shortwave Radiogram using an SDR in Japan Sunday at
0800 UTC on 5850 kHz from WRMI Florida. That Sunday 0800 transmission might also
start to become audible in Europe, especially northern Europe.
This weekend's show is
in the usual MFSK32 and MFSK64, with ten images. Also listen for the call of the
world's loudest bird (alas, not decodable by Fldigi).
Here is the
lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 123, 24-27 October 2019, in
MFSK modes as noted:
MFSK32: Program preview 2:42 World's loudest bird (with audio)* 9:23
MFSK64: German companies want a private German spaceport* 13:56 This week's
images* 27:59 MFSK32: Closing announcements

EDT) on 5960 kHz, via Germany. A minute of MFSK is at about 0130 UTC.

“This is a Music
Show” is the newest addition to digital modes via analog shortwave.
Most of the show is a music show, but the host transmits some MFSK text and
image near the end of the broadcast. It’s transmitted on WRMI, Thursdays at
0100-0200 UTC on 5850 kHz and 0130-0230 UTC on 9395 kHz (Wednesday evening in
the Americas). Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show.

New York and
Pennsylvania NBEMS nets. Most weekends, as KD9XB, I check in to the New
York NBEMS (Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Software) net Saturday at 1200 UTC
on 3584 kHz USB, and the Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1200 UTC on 3583 kHz
USB (with out-of-state check-ins now starting at 1130 UTC). Check-ins are
usually in Thor 22, and messages are in MFSK32 (PA NBEMS is experimenting with
Thor 50x1 for messages). Messages generally use the Flmsg add-on to Fldigi. If you are a radio
amateur in eastern North America, feel free to check in. Outside the region, use
an SDR in the eastern USA to tune in and decode. You do not need Flmsg to check
in, and most of the messages can be read without Flmsg. If you can decode the
net, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and
I will let them know you are tuned in. USEast NBEMS Net: Please
also note the USEast NBEMS Net, Wednesdays at 2300 UTC (7 pm EDT) on 3536 kHz
