Shortwave Radiogram #159 by Frigid/WA4333SWL

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I almost forgot about this morning’s swradiogram broadcast. This broadcast from WRMI on 15770KHz is the one I ace and decode near perfect every time. I recently built a new PC and I think this is an awesome way to break the thing in. I used Windows 10, RSP1a/SDRuno, and my longwire antenna for these. I am going to stick with this hardware/software configuration as Linux tragically fails at things like this on a constant basis.

I’m stunned at the color contrasts with this weeks images. These really push the limit of MFSK in my opinion. I would like to see the show experiment with other modes more. For instance hell and olivia were fun when they were introduced in the show. Those modes are not time efficient though and would ruin the precious 30 minute block the show has to conform and stick with.

An Alternate Way of Viewing eibispace Shortwave Broadcast Schedules.

If you have not tried some of the different ways to browse and parse radio schedule data, here is your chance to follow along. First, you are going to want to install Java from https://www.java.com/en/download/win10.jsp (I use Windows 10. Download the version for your operating system.) Then you are going to want to pull down the schedule in a special format to manipulate later on in this post. You can get it here http://www.eibispace.de/dx/eibi-radioexplorer-a20.zip . DO NOT UNZIP OR EXTRACT THE ZIP FILE FROM eibispace.de. Next, download Radio Explorer from http://www.radioexplorer.com.ru/en/download.html . Unzip and extract this zip file to the same folder with the eibi-radioexplorer-a20.zip file.

On to the final step. With Java installed as outlined above, execute RadioExplorer.jar under the Radio Explorer folder you unzipped earlier. In radio explorer, open the eibi-radioexplorer-a20.zip file as below.

WA4333SWL SWRadiogram Decodes for 5/22/2020

Hi everybody! It is looking like the sun wants to peak out of the clouds between these rain storms we are getting here at my QTH. I have decoded this morning’s 1300UTC broadcast, with great results. I had the gain on SDRuno set incorrectly for the first 2 images. I will be on a hunt for the first 2 in the next few days. Here is what I have so far.

UPDATE!

I have added the two missing images from WRMI 15770khz at 1330UTC and have included them in the image album!
