    What is a Shortwave Radiogram? OpenWebRX v1.0 is a great update. UBLOX7, Winlink and Time Sync with a cheap GPS dongle.

    KI5ONL / great QRZ page like the way you think. When I was about 2 or 3 yrs old my dad told me the guy on TV was the president. I called him cookie head
    because he was bald. Hi Hi. That's all I knew. ( Eisenhour ) Funny stuff. Your link to the short film Dust I have seen once, pretty good. 73 .... ..

    You didn't mention if they use the RSID feature when changing modes of transmission. Do they? It would help those using FLDIGI and new to digital modes to get their program set to the right mode to copy the SWRADIOGRAM programs.

    I did not try that feature myself. More information can be found about it here.

    Note: It appears these setting may interfere with your ability to transmit using FLDIGI.

    Yes he does and it does help a lot because he switches modes during the broadcast.

    I suggest joining the email list at swradiogram.net so you'll be notified each week of the schedule. It's really fun.

    But can you depend on this technology when the satellites come crashing down and all of the infrastructure fails?

    Unlike using Simplex to pass the original Radiogram weather it is VHF-UHF or HF using voice or my favorite, CW.

    I am not trying to insult anyone, but I am just pointing out reality.

    Excellent point from where my professional work stands.

    Cell phones & the internet are vulnerable, but Satellites in times of extreme weather or a real attack on the CONUS favors the old methods, esp. SW.
