Last weekend's experiment with Persian text was
interesting and mostly successful. You can see a near perfect decode via an SDR
in Kuwait (close to Iran) during the Sunday 2330-2400 UTC broadcast, 7780 kHz
from WRMI Florida (12000 km). You can see Fldigi prints out the Persian
right-to-left text by decoding from the videos and audio listed in the next

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 1300 UTC
on 3584 kHz USB, and the Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1300 UTC on 3583 kHz
USB (with out-of-state check-ins now starting at 1230 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, Thursdays at 0000 UTC (Wednesdays 7 pm EST) on
3536 kHz USB.
