Slow VOA Radiogram for January 16-17

From Kim Andrew Elliott:

Hello friends,

A reminder that this weekend's VOA Radiogram will be mostly Olivia 64-2000. If reception conditions are poor (as they were in Europe on 15670 kHz last weekend), this could be interesting, because the Olivia 64-2000 might be able to overcome the difficult reception. If reception is good, it could be boring, because Olivia 64-2000 is very slow: about 25 words per minute.
