HM01 missing broadcast
« on: October 24, 2017, 1630 UTC »
As of 1630, the usual daily transmission for 1600 on 11435 is missing. No carrier has been observed at all.

EDIT as of 1808 UTC, there has been no signal on 11435, 11530, or 11635 at all today.

Perhaps the transmitter is down for maintenance or suffered a failure?

Transmitter trouble seems the most likely explanation, but I have to admit to not really doing what I could to see about that. (What could I do? Check for all the scheduled RHC transmissions and see if any were missing. Not that that would explain things, as they often go missing without explanation, but if a lot were missing today, it could have been an additional clue. Alas, I didn't think of doing it til now.)

I didn't hear HM01 today on 11635 kHz at 20:57 UTC I think, Pedro might turn the transmitter off
