As demonstrated by the easily visible trace in the waterfall, Frederic in 
France had good (too good!) reception of the Olivia 128-2000 17 December 2017, 
2330-2400 UTC, 11580 kHz from WRMI Florida.

Hello friends,

We had a busy but mostly successful program last weekend. The 8PSK-125FL and 
250FL modes worked well if reception conditions were reasonably good. The 
8PSK-500F withFlamp also produced some 100% decoded files, often on the second 
or third pass,which is exactly how Flamp is supposed to work.
The Olivia 128-2000 resulted in 100% decodes in some very poor conditions.
Links to audio and video of last week’s program, suitable for your own
decoding, are at the bottom of this email. This weekend we will take a break 
from the experimentation for an all-MFSK32 show. This will be transmitted 
during all four time slots this weekend, i.e.
there will be no special “slow show” Sunday at 2330 UTC.
For program 27, 23-24 December 2017, Shortwave Radiogram will transmit
twelve MFSK32 images of holiday lights from cities and towns through out the 
UnitedStates. Shortwave reception conditions might make some of these photos 
fuzzier,but more charming.
With theimages following in quick succession, screen capture might be 
difficult.Keepin mind that Fldigi automatically saves decoded MFSK images as 
png files in the folder \fldigi.files\images\ (in Windows; folder names may be 
different in other operating systems).

Audio and video fromShortwave Radiogram, 16-17 December 2017

1) Saturday, 1600-1630 UTC, 9400 kHz from Bulgaria, received by Mark in the 
UK(about 2000 km). MFSK32 text was 100%, with images received. 8PSK-125F was 
100%, but one sentence was mangled in 8PSK-250FL. The 8PSK-500F with 
Flampreceived all blocks after multiple passes.

2) Saturday, 1600-1630 UTC, 9400 kHz from Bulgaria, received by François in 
France. Conditions were more challenging, but the MFSK32 performed well. The 
8PSK-125FL and -250FL modes showed errors. But the 8PSK-500F with Flamp 
received all 25 blocks in the first pass, just before the signal faded.;

3) YouTube video by Scott in Ontario, Sunday, 2030-2100 UTC, 11580 kHz from 
WRMI Florida. You can watch Scott's decode, or decode the show yourself. 
TheMFSK32 performed well despite fades. The 8PSK-500F Flamp was received 23 of 

If you don't mind cheating, use this "studio" audio to fill in Scott's missing 
two blocks ...

4) Sunday, 2330-2400 UTC, 11580 kHz from WRMI Florida, as received
in Switzerland. This is the all-Olivia 128-2000 broadcast. A low signal and 
local noise provide a good workout for the Olivia 128-2000.

And this audio by F4ECA in France ...
