Last weekend's Hawaii lava as received by Anatoly in Russia, Saturday 1600-1630 UTC, 17580 kHz.
The "unadvertised" MFSK32 signal made another appearance last weekend. Chris in England heard and decoded MFSK32 from the unknown station at 1555 UTC. Reception was difficult partly because the VOA carrier from North Carolina starts at about 1545 UTC, and it was strong into Europe last weekend. Please listen for, decode, and record if possible any strange MFSK32 signals just before or after the VOA Radiogram broadcast Saturday at 1600-1630 on 17580 kHz.
This weekend's VOA Radiogram will be all MFSK32. An image after the closing announcement shows the effects of flooding in North Carolina, near the transmitter site, following Hurricane Matthew. That will be followed by ASCII art (use monospace font such as Courier or Consolas). A small logo image and the waterfall ID will be seen after the closing music (I had an extra minute to fill).
