Multilingual VOA Radiogram for September 5-6

From Kim Andrew Elliott:

Hello friends,

An updated version (1.2) of the AndFlmsg Android app is now available at

This new version has support for the UTF-8 character set.  To give the AndFlmsg update a workout, this weekend’s VOA Radiogram will include news items in Russian and Spanish.  The Spanish involves only a few letters with accents. Russian is more complicated, with its Cyrillic alphabet. 

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 127,  5-6 September 2015, all in MFSK32 except where noted:

 1:34  Program preview
 2:44  New Russian Internet data law*
 9:46  Same subject, in Russian*

Thanks for your reports from last weekend. I did not see much difference between the images at 1500 and 2000 Hz, but I’m still looking at the sample. I will prepare a gallery comparing all the 1500/2000 Hz images. And I will begin responding to reports from program 121, starting today.
