Welcome to program 196 of Shortwave Radiogram.

I'm Kim Andrew Elliott in Arlington, Virginia USA.

In a few minutes, we will transmit the Shortwave Radiogram
schedule as a plain-text (ASCII) table.

For the table to display correctly, use a monospace font (all
letters are the same width) such as Courier, Courier New,
Consolas, Lucida Console, Source Code Pro, or Terminal.

If the table is out of alignment because you have a
proportional-spaced font, copy the table to a text editor or word
processor with a monospace font selected.


Here is the lineup for today's program, in MFSK modes as noted:

  1:52 MFSK32: Program preview (now)
  4:23 Shortwave Radiogram schedule as plain-text table
  8:29 Shortwave Radiogram schedule as Flmsg CSV file*
10:32 MFSK64: ISS amateur gear repairs, as Flmsg Blank form*
13:22 Radio galaxy detected, as Flmsg Transfer of html file*
17:02 This week's images
28:10 MFSK32: Closing announcements



*Uses Flmsg from If you do not have
Flmsg, the content will still be visible in the Fldigi receive

If Fldigi has been configured correctly, Fldigi will open Flmsg
to the correct form. In some cases, a new window of your web
browser will also open.

After any of the Flmsg transmissions, if you get a checksum error
message, click Yes when prompted whether to ignore errors.

We begin with the Shortwave Radiogram schedule as a (non-Flmsg)
plain-text table ...

Next, the schedule transmitted using Flmsg as a CSV (comma
delimited) file.

When the Flmsg CSV form appears, click View CSV. You can also
export the CSV file to your computer, then open the CSV file
using your spreadsheet program.

If you do not have Flmsg, paste the CSV text to a text editor and
save it as a .csv file.

<h1>ARISS Ham Station in Columbus Module<br>Is Once Again Operational</h1>

March 15, 2021

Some 6 weeks after going silent following a spacewalk that installed new antenna cabling, the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) ham station in the Columbus module is once again operational. The
Columbus station, which typically uses the call sign NA1SS, is the primary ARISS amateur radio station used for school contacts and other activities. A January 27 spacewalk replaced a coax feed line installed 11 years ago
with another built by the European Space Agency (ESA) and Airbus.

While the specific cause of the problem has not yet been determined, a March 13 spacewalk that restored the antenna cabling to its original configuration provided the cure. The plan to return the ARISS cabling to its
original configuration had been a "contingency task" for a March 5 spacewalk, but the astronauts ran out of time. The ARISS work was appended to the to-do list for astronauts Mike Hopkins, KF5LJG, and Victor Glover,
KI5BKC, to complete a week later.

“On behalf of the ARISS International Team, our heartfelt thanks to all who helped ARISS work through the cable anomaly investigation, troubleshooting, and ultimate repair,” ARISS International Chair Frank Bauer, KA3HDO,
said. Bauer praised NASA, the ESA, Airbus, and ARISS-Russia lead Sergey Samburov, RV3DR. While the Columbus ham station was off the air, ARISS school and group contacts were able to continue using the ham station in the
ISS Service Module on the Russian side of the station.

During the weekend spacewalk, Hopkins swapped out a cable for the Bartolomeo commercial payload-handling platform that had been installed in series with the ARISS VHF-UHF antenna feed line, returning the ARISS system to
its pre-January 27 configuration. Hopkins raised a question concerning a sharp bend in the cable near a connector, but no further adjustments were possible.

On March 14, ARISS was able to confirm the operation’s success when Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) signals on 145.825 MHz were heard in California, Utah, and Idaho as the ISS passed overhead. ARISS team member
Christy Hunter, KB6LTY, was able to digipeat through NA1SS during the pass. With additional confirmation from stations in South America and the Middle East, ARISS declared the radio system operational again.

Work during the March 13 spacewalk also made Bartolomeo operational. "Yesterday was a great day for all!" Bauer exulted. "Ad astra!"

Next, a news story about radio emissions from a distant galaxy.
It is a web page in html format, transmitted using the Transfer
form of Flmsg.

Upon completion of the transmission, the name of the html file
will appear in the Flmsg Tranfer form. Click on the file name,
then click Open.

If you do not have Flmsg, copy the received html text from, and
including, <!DOCTYPE html> to, and including, </html> to a text
editor, save it as an .html file, and open the .html file in a
web browser.

<h1>Cosmic Lens Reveals Faint Radio Galaxy</h1>
<p><em>National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO)</em></p>
<p>Radio telescopes are the world's most sensitive radio
receivers, capable of finding extremely faint wisps of radio
emission coming from objects at the farthest reaches of the
universe. Recently, a team of astronomers used the National
Science Foundation's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) to
take advantage of a helping hand from nature to detect a distant
galaxy that likely is the faintest radio-emitting object yet
<p>The discovery was part of the VLA Frontier Fields Legacy
Survey, led by NRAO Astronomer Eric Murphy, which used distant
clusters of galaxies as natural lenses to study objects even
farther away. The clusters served as gravitational lenses, using
the gravitational pull of the galaxies in the clusters to bend
and magnify light and radio waves coming from the more-distant
<h2>Radio relics</h2>
<p>In this composite, a VLA radio image is superimposed on a
visible-light image from the Hubble Space Telescope. The
prominent red-orange objects are radio relics &mdash; large
structures possibly caused by shock waves &mdash; inside the
foreground galaxy cluster, called MACSJ0717.5+3745, which is more
than 5 billion light-years from Earth.</p>
<p>Detailed VLA observations showed that many of the galaxies in
this image are emitting radio waves in addition to visible light.
The VLA data revealed that one of these galaxies, shown in the
pullout, is more than 8 billion light-years distant. Its light
and radio waves have been bent by the intervening cluster's
gravitational-lensing effect.</p>
<blockquote>"This probably is the faintest radio-emitting object
ever detected."<br>&mdash; Ian Heywood, Oxford
<p>The radio image of this distant galaxy, called
VLAHFF-J071736.66+374506.4, has been magnified more than 6 times
by the gravitational lens, the astronomers said. That
magnification is what allowed the VLA to detect it.</p>
<h2>Powerful cosmic lenses</h2>
<p>"This probably is the faintest radio-emitting object ever
detected," said Ian Heywood, of Oxford University in the UK.
"This is exactly why we want to use these galaxy clusters as
powerful cosmic lenses to learn more about the objects behind
<p>"The magnification provided by the gravitational lens,
combined with extremely sensitive VLA imaging, gave us an
unprecedented look at the structure of a galaxy 300 times less
massive than our Milky Way at a time when the universe was less
than half its current age. This is giving us valuable insights on
star formation in such low-mass galaxies at that time and how
they eventually assembled into more massive galaxies," said Eric
Jimenez-Andrade, of NRAO.</p>
<p>The scientists are reporting their work in a pair of papers in
the Astrophysical Journal.</p>
<p>The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is a facility of the
National Science Foundation, operated under cooperative agreement
by Associated Universities, Inc.</p>
