On Monday night (11th October 2021) I logged some more shortwave broadcast stations. First in the log was WRMI Radio Miami International on 5010 kHz on the 60m band.
Radio Miami International was founded in 1989 by Jeff White (currently General Manager) and Kiko Espinosa (chief engineer, who passed away in 2005).
In 2013 WRMI purchased the former Family Radio shortwave station in Okeechobee, Florida. This is the largest privately owned shortwave station in the Western hemisphere, consisting of 660 acres which is also used as a cattle ranch. It has 14 transmitters, most of them 1000,000 watts, and 23 antennas beamed in eleven different directions around the world.
I was receiving WRMI overall fair. The signal strength was fair with moderate interference from other stations. Fading on the signal was fair and I was experiencing some static crashes.
Below is a short video of my reception of WRMI.
