Default 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.
I don't mind the bells, but those whistles drive me up the wall.
