What's up with HM01
« on: March 05, 2018, 1925 UTC »
Has been in repeat mode since 2/9 - and the audio has become flat out rotten - not a propagation issue - echoey and distorted.  Also, more & more RHC BXs just before HM01 starts and lots of Windows sounds - the other day the YL just repeated "UNO" for about a minute with no transmission to follow.
Makes me wonder if their "messages" are or were ever intended to be received by any real "spy".

There's little doubt that they have been in the past. But today? Who knows? All one can say is that they haven't gotten a new message in nearly a month, and that was after a fairly lengthy period of normal operation without repeats. I'm sure it's keeping some counterintelligence officials busy trying to figure out which possibility is the likeliest.
