Friday, April 27 2018

Hello friends,

The first broadcast of Shortwave Radiogram program 45 is today (Friday) at 2030-2100 UTC on 7780 kHz from WRMI Florida. (Although reception tends to be difficult beyond eastern North America.)

Last weekend's experiment with six modes was interesting. Of the three fast Thor modes, Thor 100 seemed to be less successful than Thor 50x1 and Thor 50x2. Of course, in difficult reception conditions, our "go to" MFSK32 mode prevailed over all the faster modes. Zach in Alabama had difficult reception of the Monday
0800-0830 UTC show, with these results:
MFSK128: <10% MFSK64: <15% MFSK32: ~75% Thor50x1: <15% Thor50x2: <10% Thor100: <5%
