[This MFSK32 image of tulips was included in The Mighty KBC's new transmission Saturdays at 1500-1600 UTC on 9400 kHz, via Bulgaria. It was received by Al using an SDR in Switzerland. If you are outside of Europe, try the University of Twente receiver in the Netherlands:
Last weekend, it was the Sunday 0230-0300 UTC broadcast on 5745 kHz that provided the most difficulty for listeners. Reception in Europe was non-existent. And it was not as good as usual in most of the Americas. Ontario was an exception, as you can see in this video by Scotty in Toronto ...
>From the Saturday 1600-1630 UTC show, Youtube videos were produced by
"BlackApple 62" in Italy ...
And by Tim in Colorado, same time, same frequency ...
You can watch their decoding, or do your own decoding using the audio from the videos.
This weekend's VOA Radiogram will be all MFSK32, because I did not have enough time to squeeze in an MFSK16 item.
Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 212, 22-23 April 2017, all in MFSK32 centered on 1500 Hz ...
