Decoding VOA Radiogram Program 107

I didn’t have much success decoding VOA Radiogram program 106 last weekend, probably due to changing shortwave propagation conditions as we head closer to summer. According to Kim Andrew Elliott, propagation for last week’s 17860 kHz broadcast was probably the worst since the start of VOA Radiogram in 2013.

I had better luck decoding this weekend’s VOA Radiogram program 107. There were three images and three news items broadcast during this show:

* India’s net neutrality debate
* US Congressional hearing on Russian international media
* VOA Russian story about Yuri Gagarin
