VOA Radiogram for April 26-27

From Kim Andrew Elliott:

Hello friends,

For the weekend of 26-27 April, we will transmit only one mode at a time.

One of the VOA News stories, about the Ukraine-Russia cyberwar, is very interesting, but it is also long and would take more than 10 minutes in MFSK32. So it will be in the faster MFSK64L mode.

Everything else will be MFSK32 except for the surprise mode during the closing music.

Here is the lineup for VOA Radiogram, program 56, 26-27 April 2014:

   1:33  MFSK32: Program preview
 2:45  MFSK64L: Ukraine Russia cyberwar
 9:30  MFSK32: Heat into electricity, with image
13:46  MFSK32: Electric cars at the NY auto show, with image
21:33  MFSK32: (Spanish) NASA spacesuits, with image
26:00  MFSK32: Closing announcements

Please send reception reports to
