I just realized that the first transmission of Shortwave Radiogram, today
(Thursday) at 2330-2400 UTC, will compete with Halloween. Be careful out there,
especially in eastern North America, where storms are expected.
changes continue this weekend. Many clocks are turning back one hour --
despite what I wrote in last week's email. The European time change is
complete,and the North American time change begins Sunday of this weekend. The
schedules on the WRMI frequencies used by WRMI will stay with UTC. As of 3
November, WINB on 9265 will (I think) stay with local Eastern time, but the DRM
will change to 13690 kHz and (I think) stay with UTC.
This weekend's show is
in the usual MFSK32 and MFSK64 .
Here is the lineup for
Shortwave Radiogram, program 124, 31 October-3 November 2019, in MFSK
modes as noted:
MFSK32: Program preview 2:43 Asteroid Hygeia may be a dwarf
planet* 7:38 MFSK64: Carbon capture might not be a great idea 13:05

Please send reception reports to
The Mighty KBC
transmits to North America Sundays at 0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 8-10 pm
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 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 email@example.com , 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
Thanks for your reception
