This weekend’s VOA Radiogram will include an invitation to a meeting of shortwave DXers in Mexico. Most of it is in Spanish, so make sure you have the UTF-8 character set selected in Fldigi Configure > Colors & Fonts. After that, back to English for interesting science news from the VOA newsroom, accompanied by interesting images.

Both frequencies are via Germany. Reception reports for KBC should be sent to themightykbc (at) gmail.com .
If you are in North America, reception of KBC’s 6095 kHz frequency is generally possible only via this web-controlled SDR receiver at the University of Twente in the Netherlands: http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
This receiver is also useful for VOA Radiogram if you are in the skip zone for 17860 and 15670 kHz (look for Kim KD9XB in the chat area).
