WRMI (via Okeechobee)

WRMI, transmitting from Okeechobee, Florida (USA), was received on 5 November 2016. Presumably the programmes "FG Radio" and "Words of Life" were observed from 23.10 till 23.50 UTC until grey-line path between Malaysia and the eastern US disappeared. Reception on 9.955 kHz was (SINPO) 24332 -- weak but audible and occasionally clear content, despite atmospheric noise which increased as grey-line ended. By 23.50 UTC, signal was just barely audible.

Interestingly, this marks the first reception of WRMI since early this year. As we approach the winter months, reception of stations in the northern hemisphere and Caribbean should improve, owing to the longer period when a grey-line path is present between Malaysia and these areas of the world.

Reception report was emailed and submitted online to WRMI on the following day, 6 November 2016. An immediate eQSL was requested as well, and it was indeed received with minutes of submission. A follow-up paper QSL card arrived in the mail on 30 November 2016.
