There was no consensus as to whether the MFSK16 or MFSK8 was more successful last weekend. (You can listen to, and decode, the MFSK8 from 3 December as received â with difficultyâ in Tasmania. This was during the 2330-2400 UTC broadcast on 11580 kHz from WRMI Florida.) The IFKP 1.0 did not decode for most listeners (including me),but there were some successes, including the image. This IFKP 1.0
image was decoded by Richard in New Brunswick â
This weekend, we will keep you busy for one more intensive roundof radio experiments, before settling down to some leisurely all-MFSK32 shows during the holiday period.
Three Olivia modes on the 2330 UTCbroadcast. Letâs hope that propagation cooperates by providing poor reception during the Sunday 2330-2400 broadcast on 11580 kHz. During this half hour, we will transmitOlivia 64-2000, Olivia 32-1000, and Olivia 16-500, all centered on 1500 Hz.These are all slow modes,
between 20 and 30 wpm, so the entire broadcast will consist of less than one AP news story. Be sure to turn the Fldigi squelch(SQL) off.

Fun with Flamp. Meanwhile, the other three broadcasts this weekend will be in the usual MFSK32. There will, however, be one item in 8PSK-1000F,the very fast mode (3386 wpm) we tried a few weeks ago. This time, the8PSK-1000F will be used in
conjunction with Flamp, one of the Fldigi suite of programs. Please download Flamp from https://sourceforge.net/projects/fldigi/files/flamp/.
Flamp will divide the news story into ten blocks of 480 byte seach. Then it will transmit the story four times. Any blocks that do not havethe correct number of characters, due to fading or interference, can be received during the second,third, or fourth passes. The news story that requires seven minutes to transmit in MFSK32 will be transmitted four times in 8PSK-1000F in about one minute.
Please activate Flamp before the switch to 8PSK-1000F atabout 19:30 into the show. Flamp will not turn on automatically (unless you have configured Fldigiâs Autostart). Go to Flampâs Receive window. Flamp will showyou which blocks were received correctly during the first through fourthpasses.
If the file is received 100%, click Save, then go to File> Folders > rx > [date of reception] â then open the file SWRG25_Russia_media.txt.
