I'm late again with this weekly email. After producing Shortwave Radiogram on
Thursday, I sometimes don't have the time - or energy - to produce this email
until the next day. I will try to get back on schedule next week.
This weekend's show is
in the usual MFSK32 and MFSK64, with nine images.
Here is the
lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 109, 18-21 July 2019, in MFSK
modes as noted:
MFSK32: Program preview 2:49 Planting trees can buy time to fight climate
change* 9:18 MFSK64: Apollo 11 needed world participation* 15:28 This
week's images* 28:17 MFSK32: Closing announcements
Please send reception reports to
The Mighty KBC
transmits to North America Sundays at 0000-0200 UTC (Saturday 8-10 pm
EDT) on 9925 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, 9395 kHz,
Thursday 0130-0230 UTC (Wednesday evening in the Americas). Also look for a
waterfall ID at the beginning of the show. firstname.lastname@example.org .
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 email@example.com , or tweet to @SWRadiogram , and
I will let them know you are tuned in.
