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


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.

  • Solar Status


    Add PropagationStats to your ham radio site.
    Radio blackouts are graded on a scale of R1 to R5 as follows:
    Radio Blackouts Descriptor
    R5 Extreme
    R4 Severe
    R3 Strong
    R2 Moderate
    R1 Minor
    Solar flux is a measurement of the intensity of solar radio emissions with a wavelength of 10.7 cm (a frequency of about 2800 MHz).
    The value broadcast is in solar flux units that range from a theoretical minimum of about 50 to numbers larger than 300.
    The A and K indices are a measurement of the behavior of the magnetic field in and around the earth.
    The K index uses a scale from 0 to 9 to measure the change in the horizontal component of the geomagnetic field.
