From Kim Andrew Elliott:

Club Diexistas de la Amistad 40th anniversary logo received by Mark in the UK, Saturday, 3 December, 1626 UTC, 17580 kHz, via North Carolina.

Hello friends,

This weekend, I am betting on adequate reception conditions, because all VOA Radiogram content will be in MFSK32 except for the transmission schedule in Olivia 64-2000 at the very end of the show. (For best Olivia 64-2000 performance, turn the Fldigi squelch [SQL] off.)

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 193, 10-11 December 2016, all in MFSK32 centered on 1500 Hz, except where noted:

 1:49  Program preview
 2:59  Cassini probe beams back images of Saturn's atmosphere*
 7:28  Kremlin doctrine for "managing" Internet*
14:38  Australia's ABC to end shortwave broadcasts*
21:14  Closing announcements*
28:28  Olivia 64-2000: Transmission schedule

* with image
