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).

Kim via KKX Kim Andrew Elliott, KD9XB Producer and Presenter Shortwave Radiogram 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. https://soundcloud.com/voaradiogram/shortwave-radiogram-16-december-2017 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. https://soundcloud.com/voaradiogram/shortwave-radiogra-16-december-2017-received-in-france; 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 25blocks. https://youtu.be/Y9dzEZO5sOE If you don't mind cheating, use this "studio" audio to fill in Scott's missing two blocks ... http://swradiogram.net/post/168650895952/if-you-did-not-receive-all-the-blocks-of-the-flamp 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. https://soundcloud.com/voaradiogram/shortwave-radiogram-program-26s-17-december-2017 And this audio by F4ECA in France ... https://soundcloud.com/user-605560085/shortwave-radiogram-1712-slow-mode-olivia-1282000 ___________________________________________________________________________________ DX mailing list DX@hard-core-dx.com http://montreal.kotalampi.com/mailman/listinfo/dx _______________________________________________ THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE IS FREE.
