Hello friends

One more reminder that WRMI (on its frequencies used for Shortwave Radiogram)
has, since the North American time changed, stayed with UTC for its program
schedule. So, for most of Europe and North America, Shortwave Radiogram is one
hour earlier by local time. WINB, on the other hand, stays with US Eastern Time
for its schedule, so Shortwave Radiogram is at the same time by local time, but
one hour later by UTC. The exception is the WINB DRM frequency of 15750 kHz,
where the schedule stays with UTC. The updated Shortwave Radiogram schedule is
below. It's a good idea to keep at least one clock (or watch) in your house set
to UTC, preferably with a 24-hour readout.

For this weekend, and probably next weekend, we still have autumn foliage to
provide many colorful photos for our image transmissions. There will be ten
MFSK64 images this weekend, two connected to the news stories. As winter
approaches, we will have to be more creative in finding suitable images.  

A video of last weekend's Shortwave Radiogram (program 230, Friday 1300 UTC) is
provided by Scott in Ontario. The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the
UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.

Here is the lineup for Shortwave Radiogram, program 231, 19-21 November 2021,
in MFSK modes as noted:
 1:44  MFSK32: Program preview
 2:49  Stratospheric balloons listen in on ground activity*
 7:42  MFSK64: Fifty years since Mariner 9 Mars mission*
14:20  This week's images*
28:23  MFSK32: Closing announcements

* with image(s)

bThis is a Music Showb Most of the show is a music show, but the host
transmits some MFSK-64 text and image near the end of the broadcast.  Itbs
transmitted on WRMI, Thursdays at 0200-0300 UTC on 5850 kHz (Wednesday evening
in the Americas). Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show.   

New York and Pennsylvania NBEMS nets. Most weekends, as KD9XB, I check in to
the New York NBEMS (Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Software) net Saturday at
1200 UTC on 3584 kHz USB, and the Pennsylvania NBEMS net Sunday at 1230 UTC on
3583 kHz USB. Check-ins are usually in Thor 22, and messages are in MFSK32.
Messages generally use the Flmsg add-on to Fldigi. If you are a radio amateur
in eastern North America, feel free to check in. Outside the region, use an SDR
in the eastern USA to tune in and decode. You do not need Flmsg to check in,
and most of the messages can be read without Flmsg. If you can decode the net,
send me an email to , or tweet to @SWRadiogram, and I
will let them know you are tuned in. USEast NBEMS Net: Please also note the
USEast NBEMS Net, Thursdays 0000 UTC (Wednesdays 7 pm EST) on 3536 kHz USB.
Thanks for your reception reports!
