    Published on Oct 22, 2017
    Here is my decode of the Shortwave Radiogram broadcast today on 7730Khz shortwave radio at 0600UTC in MFSK32 and with 5 SSTV images. There is news of Hungarian media, a Cyrillic excerpt from Deutsche Welle, a new BBC amateur station, the QST review of the Icom IC-R8600 and some award winning images . Signal was fairly good with only a little fading. The broadcast was recorded in Toronto using my Icom IC-R8600 radio timer/record function and later decoded with the Linux version of Fldigi.

    Goodbye FT8, Hello Olivia, The Magic HF Digital Mode
    HamRadioConcepts



    Published on Oct 22, 2017
    So many people have started using FT-8 on HF, but they leave all the other modes to die off, like Olivia. Olivia isn't new, but it offers the weak signal efficiency and decoding in poor conditions while giving you some rag chew, not just zombie mode callsign exchange. Check out this video to learn more, and I hope to see you on Olivia. Below are some links for the bandplans and more information.

    This is a long recording as i was intrigued by the content.To me it sounds like a speech being given by Maduro the President of Venezuela which was also being heard at the same time on 750khz YVKS RCR Radio Caracas.

    If there are any spanish speakers out there that could share more light i would appreciate it.
