intermittent audio on Boston wefax
It sounds like there is an intermittent audio connection somewhere in the transmit path to the transmitter. It is quite audible in the signal. At times the signal cuts out completely. I have heard this on the 6338 signal, don't know about other freqs as propagation has been bad. This is occurring at this time.

I've experienced that, too, not only on wefax from Port Reyes (8682 kHz), but also on their Navtex transmissions (8416 kHz), as well as on the voice weather bulletins from New Orleans (8502 kHz). In fact, the one on 8502 is in very bad shape right now at 04:09 UTC. Definitely sounds like a loose connection affecting the feed to multiple transmitters on their network. Pretty strange!

By the way, the time shown on this forum seems about 30 minutes behind.

Still happening
Today audio quit on the 9110 freq. It was still ok on 6340.

It's odd. Just when reception of those signals is strong enough to decode them accurately, they get interrupted.

BTW, regarding my previous comment, the forum's software upon posting this states, "All times are GMT -7. The time now is 8:37 AM."

But that's my time zone, and the time here is 9:06 AM. Wonder what's going on.

Has anyone tried notifying the Coast Guard of the problem?

As for the time discrepancy, just don't try to use RR to establish an alibi. LOL.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 12:32 AM.
