Correction to April 20-21 weekend's VOA Radiogram

Too late to cover the first transmission at 1600 UTC, but in time for the rest:

In this weekend's VOA Radiogram, the Thor 50x2 mode is missing, even though it is mentioned in the preview.

When the MFSK16 mode ID tells you this...

Next on VOA Radiogram, THOR50x2 (~180 wpm)

...please proceed directly to MFSK64.  The RSID will guide you to the correct mode.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Truly wretched band conditions to the East Coast precluded good decodes of the first transmission. It appears that THOR held its own, even at high speeds, but deep fades took the signal out completely.
