Chelmsford Calling World Service via WRMI

Chelmsford Calling World Service, broadcasting via WRMI  in Okeechobee, Florida (USA), was logged on 14 January 2015.  Chelmsford Calling World Service, presented by Jim Salmon, featured BDXC shortwave reports, a publication containing a list of stations in UK and Ireland, audio archives 1930s and 1940s British/American songs heard on shortwave, and lastly some techno/dance music. This broadcast was monitored from 23.05 to 00.00 UTC on 9.955 kHz.

Reception was fairly good in this quarter of the world for a change. SINPO was 35343 -- fair signal and clear audio, despite some atmospheric noise and fading; at around 23.35 UTC signal began to decline as grey-line between North America and South East Asia disappeared, degrading reception to 25232. Surprisingly, WRMI's signal remained audible after 00.10 UTC, although with less clarity.
