Today we announce the beginning of a new YouTube channel run by HFZone member Guero. This channel starts with a tutorial series titled “How to Radiogram” which covers some of the basics of encoding text and images with the fldigi Digital Modem program in the style of the venerable VOA Radiograms.
Other tutorial series and common interest videos will follow covering topics such as Short Wave Listening (SWL), antenna experiments, and other radio hobby esoterica. Please gently press “like and subscribe” when you visit the channel!
Comments and feedback can be sent to GueroGram@gmail.com
Several of us HFZone community members are aficionados of the Radiogram concept and big fans of Kim Andrew Elliot’s Shortwave Radiogram program that airs on WINB and WRMI.
As a tribute to SWRadiogram and celebrating this exciting aspect of our hobby some of us (including blog contributor J3ff and myself) have begun to compose experimental attempts at radiograms encoded in various digital modes including MFSK32 and MFSK64.
We are not ready to send these experimental recordings for SW transmission just yet, but we do want to make them available here for other community members to attempt a decode. Any feedback you can provide us will help us develop our craft in constructing good radiograms!
