This MFSK32 image, showing both was received 6 January at 1618 UTC on 9400 kHz,via both short (8600 km) and long (31500km) path, using a receiver in northwestern Canada.
Hello friends, Please note that WRMI Florida has replaced 11580 kHz with 7780 kHz to accommodate winter propagation in the northern hemisphere. So listen for Shortwave Radiogram on 7780 Sunday at 2030 and 2330 UTC. See the new schedule below. Due to automation problems, WRMI last weekend broadcast Shortwave Radiogram Monday at0800 UTC on 5850 kHz but not the advertised 7730 kHz. Both of those frequencies did not sign onuntil 0800 UTC, even though they are scheduled to start at 0700 UTC Sundays and Mondays. WRMI has been informed. I hope both 5850 and 7730 kHz carry Shortwave Radiogram this weekend, with the latter frequency more likely to reach Europe. Last weekend’s Thor Micro was generally successful in weak-signal conditions,although this mode failed when received via a multipath signal. And there were many examples of successful decoding of the Persian text (see below). This weekend’sShortwave Radiogram will mostly be in the usual MFSK32, but there will be one item in Thor 22. Thor 22 (I still don’t know if it should be Thor or THOR) haslately been used by digital HF nets in the northeastern USA. At 78 wpm, Thor 22 is somewhat slower than MFSK32 (120 wpm). As you decode the Thor 22, you will see the Shortwave Radiogram avatar in the upper right, and an image at the endof the news item. Unfortunately, Fldigi saves these images as .raw files, which are not as convenient as the .png files of MFSK32 images. You can find freeware to convert the .raw files to .jpg.
