Shortwave Radiogram, program 43, 13-16 April 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 14 2018

FinnishDX
Hello friends,

SSTV images are being transmitted from the International Space Station through 14 April. Some Shortwave Radiogram listeners have been posting their reception to @SWRadiogram -- or https://twitter.com/swradiogram.net . Two examples are
from Merkouris in Greece and @Hal-Fi in California.

On last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram, I was surprised by the mostly successful performance of the very fast (480 wpm) MFSK128 mode, even over some long-distance and noisy paths. The Olivia 64-2000 also prevailed even 9 dB under the music of Spike Jones. Next time I will set the level of the Olivia 64-2000 even lower.

See videos by Ralf in Germany, Scott in Ontario, and Martin in Mexico, And, of course, analysis by Roger in Germany.

Because the MFSK128 did so well, we will do it again this weekend, along with MFSK64 and the usual MFSK32, each with images. And a surprise mode might be lurking under the closing music.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 43, 13-16 April 2018, in MFSK modes as noted:

1:37 MFSK32: Program preview
2:50 MFSK128: New line drawings revealed in Peru*
4:33 MFSK64: Mars Express gets in-orbit upgrade*
9:30 MFSK32: The rise of wooden skyscrapers*
20:04 Foot-powered washing machine in production*
25:09 Farewell 2018 cherry blossoms*
26:56 Closing announcements

Radiomaailman RDS-kilpailu 2018  View Printable Version 
Saturday, April 07 2018

FinnishDX

Hei!

Kuulin jostain, ettà tÃllainen kilpailu pidetÃÃn ilmeisesti tulevan kesÃn aikana. Tarkoituksena on saalistaa mahdollisimman monta RDS-tunnusta.

Tarkempia sÃÃntÃjà en tiedÃ. PelkÃÃn kuitenkin, ettà kilpailu on tarkoitettu ns. kovalevykuuntelijoille, eikà ns. reaaliaikaisilla kuuntelijoilla ole omaa sarjaa, jos heità ylipÃÃtÃÃn kelpuutetaan.

Olisi mukavaa, jos sÃÃnnÃt julkaistaisiin myÃs Radiomaailma -lehden ulkopuolella, vaikkapa tÃÃllà hard-core-dx.com -sivustossa. Se saattaisi lisÃtà kiinnostusta.

Asiasta innostunut, 73Âs KKH

Shortwave Radiogram, program 42, 6-9 April 2018, in modes as noted:  View Printable Version 
Friday, April 06 2018

FinnishDX
Hello friends,

Program 41 of Shortwave Radiogram was inauspicious. First, the promised transmission Friday at 2030 UTC did not happen because WRMI's automated playout system had not been updated. (I had a suspicion that would happen). Then, as I was listening to the Saturday 1600 UTC show, I had a sense of dÃjà vu.
Ultimately I realized that, due to a production error on my part, the story about plastics in the ocean was broadcast twice, at the expense of the advertised item about SSTV from the International Space Station. I fixed that mistake, and the correct stories were broadcast Sunday and Monday.
You can view, and decode from, Scott's video of the Sunday 2330 UTC broadcast at https://youtu.be/_KdRVwHBfkM. And Mark in the UK maintains an audio archive of all Shortwave Radiograms here.

The program that has replaced Shortwave Radiogram Saturday at 2030 UTC on 7780 and 9455 kHz is about US military retirement, with emphasis on reserve military pensions. If that subject interests you, this might be a useful program.

Let's hope for no mishaps this weekend, because it will be a complicated show. It will include text and images in MFSK128, MFSK64, and MFSK32. Usually MFSK128 is too fast for typical shortwave conditions, so expect to see some errors. In general, this is my rule of thumb for the MFSK modes ...

Mode Text speed wpm Appropriate for reception condition â
FSK16 55 Poor
MFSK32 120 Fair (typical)
MFSK64 240 Good
MFSK128 480 Excellent (e.g. local VHF or UHF)

After the closing announcements will be two surprise modes. However, for readers of this email, I will reveal that the first of the surprise modes will be Olivia 64-2000, mixed with some strange noises. The same Olivia 64-2000 will also be transmitted this weekend on The Mighty KBC during its digital mode segment.
Please note that the first broadcast is today, Friday, at 2030 UTC, admittedly not a convenient hour for pre-retired North Americans.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 42, 6-9 April 2018, in modes as noted:

1:38 MFSK32: Program preview
3:09 MFSK128: Scientists find new black holes in Milky Way*
5:57 MFSK64: NASA commissions new supersonic plane*
10:19 MFSK32: NZ's Rocket Lab readies first commercial launch*
16:00 Interference threat from wireless power transfer*
23:06 DSWCI publishes new domestic shortwave broadcasting list*
25:06 Closing announcements and surprise modes

Hello friends,

A schedule change for Shortwave Radiogram is scheduled to begin today. The Sunday 2030-2100 UTC transmission changes to Friday 2030-2100 UTC on 7780 kHz and 9455 kHz. See the new schedule below. (Sometimes it takes a few days for the automation system to catch up with the advertised schedule, so we will see what actually happens this weekend.)

Last week's MFSK64 performed very well, even in reception conditions where this fast (240 wpm) would be expected to show errors. You can see (and decode from)examples in videos produced by BlackApple 62 in Italy (Saturday 1600 UTC) and by Scott in Ontario (Sunday 2330 UTC).

This weekend, we'll skip the simultaneous text and image transmission, but we will transmit one item (with image) in MFSK64. It is a story about Dyngus Day,an obscure holiday on the Monday after Easter celebrated in my native northern Indiana.

The rest of the program will be in MFSK32, except for a brief surprise mode (with RSID) after the closing announcements. Sorry, I don't think the surprise mode works with TIVAR or AndFlmsg, but it is brief, and another RSID will bring you back to MFSK32.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 41, 30 March to 2 April 2018, in MFSK32 except where noted:

1:35 Program preview
2:46 MFSK64: Happy Dyngus Day! What is Dyngus Day?*
8:24 MFSK32: Australia plans lasers to destroy space junk*
14:52 The great Pacific garbage patch*
19:49 SSTV from the International Space Station*
24:44 Image* and closing announcements
27:37 Surprise mode

Aihe: RadioamatÃrer vid Pori kortvÃgsstation
LÃhettÃjÃ: Roy Sandgren<contact@radiosyd.eu>

Hej pà er i Finland,

Jag sÃker radioamatÃrer nÃra Pori kortvÃgsstation. Gamla Radio Finlands
kort och mellanvÃgsstation.
Vi hade tÃnkt kÃra igÃng denna 6120 kHz, 100 kW sÃndare igen. Vi Ãr
osÃkra
om matarkablar och antenn Ãr korrekta utan SW missvisning. Man kan
frigÃra


sÃndaren frÃn antenn och matningar och kanske sÃnda en signal genom
systemet och se om allt fungerar i antennen. Detta med en
kortvÃgssÃndare

pà nÃgra 10-tals watt pà 6120 kHz.
SÃndaren 6120 kHz Ãr kopplad till 49-m curtain antennen. Kan ni hjÃlpa
oss
med denna mÃtning? DIGITA Ãr positiva till testerna och kÃnner bara en
person

som jobbat pà stationen kvar. Sedan hade vi tÃnkt kÃra med 963 kHz med
nÃgra 10-tals kW
Ni fÃr gÃrna skicka ut detta till alla amatÃrklubbar i Finland. Kanske
nÃgon som klarar gÃra denna test.
