VOA Radiogram for the weekend of April 27-28

Inoltro il messaggio ricevuto oggi da VOA per un nuovo giro di trasmissioni Radiogram per questo weekend


tumblr_inline_mlsvypToBx1qz4rgp

Hello friends,

One of the text transmissions on VOA Radiogram this weekend (April 27-28) will be in the Flamp format. If you don’t already have it, please download Flamp from www.w1hkj.com. Flamp divides a text file into several blocks, each with a specific number of characters. If any block is received without the correct number of characters, that block is rejected. The missing block can be picked up during the repeat transmission. Flamp might be useful for those text transmissions that are received at about 90% copy, when occasional deep fades prevent 100% copy.

These notes about Flamp:

  • In Flamp, under Configure, check both of the Auto sync boxes.
  • Flamp should be running when the news item in Flamp format is transmitted. It does not turn on automatically when a Flamp transmission occurs.
  • At the end of the first or second transmission, you will see the VOA news story as a html file in the Receive Queue. Save that file and open it in your browser. It will not pop up automatically like Flmsg. 

Here is the lineup for the April 27/28 VOA Radiogram:
MFSK16 (58 wpm) program preview
PSK63F (55 wpm), 2:50
MFSK32 text (120 wpm) and image, 4:28
Thor50x1 (180wpm), 1:48
Thor50x2 (180wpm), 1:46
MFSK64 (240 wpm), 2:16
MFSK128* in Flamp X2 format, 3:46
MFSK32 image

*Probably a good idea to set the MFSK128 mode manually rather than depend on the RSID
All modes will be centered on 1500 Hz.
Each mode will be introduced by a brief MFSK16 transmission, same as last weekend.

Please send reception reports to radiogram@voanews.com
Twitter: @VOARadiogram

Nuovi test da The Mighty KBC

Qualcosa di nuovo nel panorama delle onde corte, idea simpatica per ravvivare l’ambiente.
Ecco come si preannuncia la nottata dell’11 Novembre assieme a Mighty KBC


The Mighty KBC will test to the USA on Sunday 11 November 2012 00.00 – 02.00 UTC on 9450 kHz!
Please join the Mighty KBC for a test of a digital text sent via a shortwave broadcast transmitter.
This will take place during the next transmission to North America, Sunday 0000-0200 UTC, at approximately
0130 and just before the end of the broadcast at 0200.
All you need is a basic shortwave receiver (no SSB mode is necessary), and a basic personal computer.
Using a patch cord, you will feed the audio out of the earphone jack (or line out) of your radio into the microphone jack of your PC. If you don’t have a patch cord, you can try placing the speaker of your radio close to the built-in microphone of a laptop PC.
You will also need software. There are several freeware or shareware programs used by the amateur radio community that decode digital text modes.
One is FLDIGI, available from http://www.w1hkj.com .
After installing FLDIGI, pull down the Configure menu, then click Sound Card, and select the soundcard your PC is using.
You might also have to adjust your audio settings. In Windows 7, left click twice on the speaker icon in the lower right of PC display, then click Options, then click Properties, then click Recording, then click the input that works.
Other operating systems will have different procedures. A good way to test your audio settings is to try to decode
the radio amateurs using the PSK31 mode on 14070 kHz.
For the test digital text transmissions on Sunday, The Mighty KBC will be using the QPSK125 mode. On your software, your cursor should be centered on 1500 Hertz, where you will see the “waterfall” of the
QPSK125 signal. You can decode the transmission while you receive it, or record the transmission and decode from the recording. The latter will give you more opportunities to perfect the technique.
The test to be transmitted will be a formatted html file.
Copy it from <html> to (and including) </html>, and paste it to a text editor (such as Notepad in Windows).
Save the file, using any file name, with the suffix .htm or .html. Then open the file in any web browser.
If all goes well, this might be the first time you receive a shortwave radio broadcast in color!
In the future, an app will be developed to make this process simpler!

Salviamo il ripetitore di Budrio

Accolgo l’appello di Italradio e di Elio Antonucci, invitando a scrivere una email alla sovrintendenza dei Beni Culturali per salvare il ripetitore di Budrio, luogo che appartiene non soltanto alla storia della radio ma dell’Italia tutta.
Copio dal sito di Italradio


palazzina_marconi2Settantasei anni fa, il 9 agosto 1936, mentre a Berlino Jesse Owens vinceva le sue quattro medaglie d’oro olimpiche e tre giorni dopo l’oro della bolognese Ondina Valla negli ottanta ostacoli, vedeva la nascita, a Budrio, a poca distanza dal capoluogo emiliano, la stazione radio intitolata a Guglielmo Marconi.
Quel lontano 9 agosto Marconi stesso avrebbe dovuto partecipare all’avvenimento ma la salute glielo impedì. Il suo commovente discorso, letto dal m.se Solari, rappresenta un atto di amore per la sua città che attende di essere ricambiato.
L’infaticabile Elio Antonucci, che sta compiendo numerosi sforzi per tutelare ciò che resta del centro trasmittente RAI di Budrio, ha predisposto una mail (da inviare a: dr-ero@beniculturali.it ) per richiedere, da parte di tutti gli interessati, la salvaguardia del Centro.
Ecco il testo:

Spett.le Direzione Regionale per i Beni Culturali e paesaggistici dell’Emilia-Romagna
Con la presente, sono a richiedere un Vs. intervento urgente a tutela dell’edificio in oggetto, inaugurato il 9 Agosto del lontano 1936 e voluto da Guglielmo Marconi e a lui intitolato, poiché sta per essere demolito per far posto ad un centro commerciale.
Gli edifici pubblici esistenti da più di settant’anni sono tutelati per legge. Non si comprende come possa essere stata autorizzata la demolizione di un simile edificio, ad evidente carattere storico-culturale, semplicemente per dare vita ad un centro commerciale.
L’area circostante, oltre tutto, consentirebbe di impiantare tale centro commerciale altrove. In ogni caso, l’edificio storico di cui trattasi costituisce indiscutibilmente bene culturale di grande rilievo e potrebbe divenire sede di un museo dedicato a Guglielmo Marconi e all’invenzione della radio.
Confido nell’intervento urgente di codesto Ente, a tutela di un bene di enorme valore storico e culturale, che il Comune di Budrio incomprensibilmente sottovaluta e di cui sembra ignorare l’importanza.
Con osservanza.

Terremoto in Emilia Romagna: un pensiero da Radio Cina Internazionale

Ricevo questa inaspettata email da Radio Cina Internazionale.
Una piccolo cosa in fondo ma e’ importante quando c’e’ qualcuno che soffre e sapere che dalla lontana Cina hanno voluto fare il bel gesto di scrivermi in quanto italiano, emiliano e modenese nello specifico, l’ho molto apprezzato.
Per cio’ che mi concerne, abito abbastanza lontano dall’epicentro da non aver subito danni ma ad altre mie conoscenze non e’ andata cosi’ bene ed e’ soprattutto a loro che giro l’affetto della redazione.


Caro Massimiliano,
Siamo molto dispiaciuti per la tragedia che ha colpito la regione Emilia-Romagna. Siamo sempre vicini a voi.

Cordiali saluti
