Shortwave Radiogram: fun with bad reception

The Shortwave Radiogram broadcast Sundays at 2330-2400 UTC on 11580 kHz from WRMI Florida has lately experienced poor reception in most parts of the world. For this reason, this transmission on Sunday, 26 November will be all in Olivia 64-2000. This is a very slow mode (about 28 wpm) but robust in difficult conditions. It could be an interesting test of the limits of shortwave.

The other three broadcasts of Shortwave Radiogram will be in the usual MFSK32 (120 wpm), with four images.

Details and schedule ... 

Patch the audio from your radio to a PC with Fldigi installed, or an Android device with the TIVAR app. If a patch is not available,  you can place the radio's speaker near your device's mic (acoustic coupling).
