M08a off the air?
« on: July 10, 2018, 2301 UTC »
Hello all.
I am on 8136 LSB on the Florida globaltuners SDR, and right now i don't hear anything. Maybe transmitter problems?
All the best Chris.

I'm not sure how often you copy M08a, but it's never been an every day station for me. In fact I almost never hear it at all. I'm given to understanding that it's irregular, but I'm not sure if it's really infrequent or if that's just my bad luck. But it's not listed at all in the latest Numbers and Oddities newsletter, which must mean that none of its regular contributors heard anything in June.

I copy M08a whenever I have a chance, so like you said its irregular.
