Chelmsford Calling World Service (via WRMI)

Chelmsford Calling World Service via WRMI in Okeechobee, Florida (USA) was logged on 23 December 2015. A wonder selection of programmes about all things radio, including Media Magazine, The Wireless Years, The Elettra Report, Sunny Jim's Trance Journey and Listening Post, was heard from 23.00 till 00.00 UTC. Reception 9.955 kHz was (SINPO) 35433 -- signal was best received from 23.10 till 23.30 UTC when clarity and strength of signal was fair to good; at other times transmission was audible, but with more atmospheric noise as grey-line gradually disappeared between Malaysia and Florida.

If you've not caught Chelmsford Calling World Service on radio, they may be heard at their website. I heartily recommend a listen. The programmes are excellent!!!

Reception report was emailed to WRMI and Chelmsford Calling World Service. Approximately six hours later I received an eQSL and very pleasant email from Chelmsford Calling host, Jim Salmon, saying: "Hello Timm. Many thanks for your reception report following recent airing on WRMI. I attach our eQSL. I am currently taking a break from this programme but hope to return with new programmes sometime in the future. This programme was recorded in October 2015. At the moment I am working on a new project to look at the first broadcast station in the UK – details here - You can also follow this on facebook or twitter – just search for 'radioemmatoc'. Greetings to you & yours & all the best for Christmas!"  A QSL card from WRMI arrived in the mail on 3 August 2016.
