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 
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 
files, which are not as convenient as the .png files of MFSK32 images. You can 
find freeware to convert the .raw files to .jpg.

Here is the lineup for ShortwaveRadiogram, program 30,13-14 January 2018, in 
MFSK32 except where noted:
