Hello friends,
Last weekendâs experiment with the five 2000-Hz-wide Olivia modes was
interesting and fun. It appeared that Olivia 64-2000, 32-2000, and 16-2000 all performed well, even in difficult reception condition. It was not until Olivia 8-2000 and, more so, 4-2000that errors were seen. At about 75 words per minute, Olivia 16-2000 might be a good mode for Shortwave Radiogram,except that it is only about 70% as fast as MFSK32 and, unlike MFSK32, it cannot be used to transmit images.

If you have recordings of your Olivia mode reception, especially if your decode was lessthan 100%, try decoding from your recording after adjusting the integration period upward (Op Mode > Olivia > Custom). Read about the integration period here and note that the default integration period changes as the number of tones changes.Large integration periods can be a problem in amateur radio QSOs, because ofthe lag time between transmit and receive, but they are less of a problem in a broadcast situation. If you do not have a recording, you can use Scottâs video, with some errors seen from the Olivia 8-2000 and 4-2000 modes.
This weekend Shortwave Radiogram will be all MFSK32. There are two interesting stories about North Korea, and one about finding a lost
NASA satellite. Each of these has animage, and there is a bonus images of Wednesdayâs âsuper blue blood moon.â
The broadcast Sunday at 2330 UTC coincides with the kick off of Super Bowl LII.If ratings for the big game are down this year, it will be due to competition from Shortwave Radiogram.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 33,3-5 February 2018, all in MFSK32 centered on 1500 Hz:

1:31 Program preview
2:38 North Korea steps up mobile phone detection*

Hello friends,
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.

YouTube videos of reception and decoding last Sunday, 21 January 2018, 2030-2100 UTC, 7780kHz from WRMI Florida, are provided by Dmitry in Belarus
https://youtu.be/iJger1eJG2k and Scottin Ontario https://youtu.be/W3YY0UTdxYc.

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).

Here is the lineup for ShortwaveRadiogram, program 32,27-28 January 2018, in MFSK32 except where noted:
