Hurricane Matthew will probably not affect our North Carolina transmitting site, so VOA Radiogram should be on the air as scheduled. Most models show the storm turning east into the Atlantic, then maybe south and back west into Florida again. We hope that our listeners in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina stay safe and experience minimal disruptions.
This weekend, VOA Radiogram will include a new story in Olivia 64-2000. Let's hope for poor reception to provide a good test for this mode. For a correct decode of the Olivia 64-2000, the squelch (SQL) in the bottom right of the Fldigi interface should be turned off.
Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 184, 8-9 October 2016, all in MFSK32 except where noted:
1:51 Program preview
