While waiting for the Monday 0800 UTC broadcast of Shortwave Radiogram, I was surprised to hear a digital mode on 7730 kHz from WRMI Florida. I recognized it as MFSK16, at about 800 Hz. It was the Broad Spectrum Radio program on WRMI,scheduled for Monday at 0700-0800 UTC. It might be worth a listen this
Monday to see if the MFSK16 (or any other mode) is repeated.
My opinion of Thor 22 increased after last weekâs Shortwave Radiogram. After the adjustments, click Save to save the image as a png file. The original.raw file, about 8 Mb, can then be deleted to save disk space.

This weekend we will experiment with five flavors of the Olivia mode. Olivia can be adjusted for bandwidth and number of tones, providing a large number of options. The wider the bandwidth, the faster the text printout. The larger the number of tones, the slower the text. This weekend all the Olivia modes will be 2000 Hzwide, but we will decrease the number of tones: 64, 32, 16, 8, and 4. As the number of tones decreases, and speed will increase, but the performance
in typical shortwave conditions will deteriorate.
There are RSIDs for each of the Olivia modes we will transmit, so make sure your RxID is on. If the RSID does not work, you will need to change the mode manually.For Olivia 32- through 4, this will require a custom setting: Op Mode > Olivia>Custom> Set bandwidth to 2000 Hz and the number of tones as appropriate.
A30-second tuning signal will be provided after each RSID to provide time for a manual mode change, if it is needed. Another way to change modes would be Fldigi macros, using this syntax: <MODEM:OLIVIA:2000:32>(all caps).
