VOA Radiogram for 8-9 August

Hello friends,

Last weekend’s comparison of images in MFSK16, MFSK32, MFSK64, and SSTV Scottie DX, was interesting. In general, I think, it supports our use of MFSK32 both for text and images.   

This weekend on VOA Radiogram, we return to our usual MFSK32 mode, except for one news item in Olivia 32-2000, which might succeed even in poor reception conditions.

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 123, 8-9 August 2015, all in MFSK32 except where noted:

 1:31  Program preview
 2:48  Facial expressions of horses*
 8:21  Use of drones to transport blood samples*
14:48  Hijacking radio signals from computer accessories*
20:32  Olivia 32-2000: Poll indicates Russians favor Internet censorship*
27:07  MFSK32: Closing announcements
28:08  Olivia 64-2000: VOA Radiogram transmission schedule

* with image

I have returned from my week off, with a large pile of audience research work on my desk. Because of this, I am now four weeks behind in answering your emails. But I will answer them, with galleries of images decoded by VOA Radiogram listeners all over the world.

I hope you can tune in and write in this weekend.
