VOA Radiogram for 14-15 June 2014

From Kim Andrew Elliott:

    Hello friends,

    I apologize for the delay in responding to your emails from the past few weeks. After returning from travels in May, my audience research duties have greatly expanded (in quantity, not in importance). Furthermore, at home, I have installed a new PC running Windows 7, and applications crash nearly every time I open them. (Fldigi is an interesting exception: it's usually stable.) This PC problem and finding a solution are cutting into my productivity.

[This hasn't been an issue on any of several machines I converted to W7. Are your apps in the latest versions that are compatible with the way Windows does security since Vista?  (Fldigi is.) If not, are they running in directories outside Program Files or Program Files (x86)?  A lot of these apps shaped up for me when I created a directory outside this hierarchy under C: called Radio and installed to there instead.]

    I will resume sending emails as soon as I get home this afternoon, probably starting with program 62 and working my way back in time.

    VOA Radiogram for 14-15 June 2014 (program 63) is MFSK32, with a couple of surprises at the end...
