From Kim Andrew Elliott:
Hello friends,After last weekend's schedule mishap, the VOA Radiogram transmissions should be back to their regular times and frequencies this weekend:
UTC Day UTC Time Frequency Notes Saturday 0930-1000 5745 kHz Was missing on 5 April Saturday 1600-1630 17860 kHz Sunday 0230-0300 5745 kHz Saturday 10:30 pm EDT in North America;try unattended reception in Europe Sunday 1930-2000 15670 kHz All transmissions via North CarolinaMystery mode: VOA Radiogram, for the weekend of 12-13 April 2014, will be all MFSK32 centered on 1500 Hz, but there will also be a mystery mode transmitted simultaneously at an audio frequency of 2300 Hz. (The RSID will help unlock the mystery of the mystery mode.)You can decode both the MFSK32 and the other mode by 1) running two instances of Fldigi, 2) running Fldigi and another decoding software such as MultiPSK or DM780, or 3) recording the show and decoding the mystery mode later.The audio frequency of the mystery mode needs to be tuned very precisely. It will probably be a few Hz above or below 2300 Hz. The content is the VOA Radiogram email address, website URL, and schedule, transmitted over and over, so you will have plenty of time to achieve a successful decode.One of the MFSK32 VOA news items will be in Spanish. You will need the UTF-8 characters for the accented letters to display correctly. Find the UTF-8 setting via Configure > Colors and Fonts.Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 54, 12-13 April 2014 (all MFSK32 centered on 1500 Hz except where indicated):1:43 Program preview2:58 Mystery mode starts centered on 2300 Hz4:44 Survey of trust in the Internet, with image13:00 Intel's use of non-conflict minerals, with image19:15 US Navy developing fuel from seawater, with image24:19 VOA Spanish on "cardio," with VOA Voz de América logo27:10 Closing announcementsPlease send reception reports to email@example.comThanks for your reports to VOA Radiogram from the past weekend.
