This weekend, VOA Radiogram will add a new transmission this weekend, Sunday,0600-0630 UTC, 7730 kHz via WRMI Florida. See the schedule below. In that schedule, the three WRMI broadcasts will be the schedule for the successor to VOA Radiogram starting the weekend of June 24-25.
I have yet to decide on a name for the successor to VOA Radiogram. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome!
Thanks for your kind words of support as the VOA Radiogram project draws to a close (last show is the weekend of June 17-18) and its replacement is developed,first on WRMI and perhaps later other transmitters. I will answer your emails as soon as I can. I am now responding to reception reports from last weekend.

This weekend's VOA Radiogram is, as usual, mostly in MFSK32, with some MFSK16. There is also some text in Amharic, the main language of Ethiopia. You will need the UTF-8 character set for the Amharic to display correctly. In Fldigi, UTF-8 is the default character set, but you can check to make sure via Configure > Colors & Fonts. In TIVAR, UTF-8 is the only available character set.
Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 218, 3-4 June 2017, all in MFSK32 except where noted:
1:49 Program preview
3:03 Hypersonic space plane*
7:30 India opens longest bridge in its northeast*
14:37 Ethiopia cuts off internet during exams * **
20:24 MFSK16: WSPR from Canadian C3 voyage
