Less Surprising VOA Radiogram for November 29-30

From Kim Andrew Elliott:

Hello friends,

Flmsg returns this weekend on The Mighty KBC. See details below.

This week on VOA Radiogram, the "surprise mode of the week" becomes the "bonus mode of the week." Because many of you have problems with the RSID, I will divulge the bonus mode so that you can make manual adjustment if necessary.

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 87, 29-30 November 2014, all in MFSK32 centered on 1500 Hz except where indicated:

 1:37  Program preview
 2:39  Dimming lights to see the night sky*
11:27  Cambodian rice wins "world's best" title*
19:53  Color photos of 1963 Soviet Union*
26:29  Closing announcements
27:20  Bonus mode of the week: MT63-2000L

This weekend, the MFSK64 transmissions on The Mighty KBC will be in Flmsg format. If you do not have the Flmsg software, download it from the same source as Fldigi:

To make Flmsg work with Fldigi, in Fldigi:  Fldigi: Configure > Misc > NBEMS > Under "Reception of flmsg files" check both "Open with flmsg" and "Open in browser." Under that indicate where your Flmsg program is located, for example C:Program Files (x86)\flmsg-2.0.5\flmsg.exe.

If all goes well, the text from The Mighty KBC will pop up on your web browser.

Thanks for your reception reports for program 86.  I hope to have all them answered by the end of the weekend.

If you are in the USA, Happy Thanksgiving!
