Hello friends,

The VOA Radiogram experiment enters an interesting new phase with MFSK32 
text included in the shortwave broadcasts of the VOA Mandarin Service.

Beginning UTC Sunday at 2258 UTC (Monday morning in China)...

There will be 1:10 (1 minute, 10 seconds) of MFSK32 in Chinese beginning 

2258:15 UTC        6135  9845 kHz
0058:10 UTC        9880 15385 15565 17560 kHz

These transmissions will continue for two weeks. The transmissions are 
via VOA relays stations in Asia.

The MFSK32 will be Chinese characters.  You will need the UTF-8 
character set.  In Fldigi: Configure > Colors & Fonts.

Usually there will be Chinese domestic radio jamming VOA on the same 
frequency. It will therefore be MFSK32 versus the Chinese jamming.

I know that most of you are outside of the target area for these VOA 
Mandarin broadcasts directed to China, but you might be able to hear 
these transmissions on at least one frequency.

If you can hear these broadcasts, it would be very helpful if you can 
send me recordings (mp3 is OK), including at least one minute before the 
MFSK32 begins.

The weekend English broadcasts of VOA Radiogram will continue.
