Hi there UKDXer.

Thank you for your kind comments about WMR today. We do our best, and it was good to have visitors to the station, making a nice change, and adding enthusiasm.

Glad to know the band was a bit better Saturday night and Sunday morning. A bit of a fade out around lunchtime but on Sunday evening both channels are still hammering out again...

I was listening to WMR quite comfortably until midnight (local time) last night. Signal still coming in well - 48 metres was certainly open very late last night.

6309 was Radio Pirana Int. Station confirmed this after receiving short audio clip from me.
