As I type this, Tropical Storm Nicole is passing over Florida. This storm is not as powerful as Ian, but no doubt Nicole’s rain and wind will have some impact on WRMI operations. At the moment (2108 UTC), I am hearing WRMI on some of its frequencies, including 15770 kHz. There might be some disruptions this weekend. We wish WRMI a speedy recovery.
WRMI’s 7730 kHz is not yet back on the air after Hurricane Ian damage, but the Sunday 2330-2400 UTC broadcast is now on 7570 kHz. The beam is 315 degrees, so reception in North America will probably be better than it was on 7730 kHz – and not as good in Europe.
Last week I noted the WINB DRM transmission on 15755 kHz rather than the usual 15750 kHz. With no confirmation of any change, 15750 kHz is still listed below, but it might actually be centered on 15755.
The changeover from daylight time to standard time is now complete. The will affect some Shortwave Radiogram transmission times. The schedules of WINB on 9265 kHz and WRMI on 9955 kHz stay with Eastern Time, so UTC times change. The other frequencies stay with UTC, so local times will change. The schedule below is correct as far as I can tell.
Videos of last weekend’s Shortwave Radiogram (program 277) are provided by Darau Blė in Lithuania and by Scott in Ontario (both Friday 1300 UTC). The audio archive is maintained by Mark in the UK. Analysis is prepared by Roger in Germany.

“This is a Music Show” Most of the show is a music show, but the host transmits some MFSK-64 text and image near the end of the broadcast. It’s transmitted on WRMI, Thursdays at 0200-0300 UTC on 5850 kHz (Wednesday evening in the Americas). Also look for a waterfall ID at the beginning of the show. firstname.lastname@example.org www.twitter.com/ThisIsAMusicSho/ @ThisIsAMusicSho https://thisisamusicshow.com
