On Nov 5 2016, HIARC members visited the WRMI shortwave station in Okeechobee,Fl. WRMI is the largest shortwave broadcast station site in the USA
The station broadcasts with a 50,000-watt Wilkinson AM50,000B transmitter, as well as a 5,000-watt auxiliary transmitter. WRMI had a corner reflector antenna beaming 160 degrees toward the Caribbean and Latin America, and a yagi-style log periodic antenna beaming 317 degrees toward North America. The two antennas were used at different times of the day, meaning that certain hours were beamed to North America and other hours to the Caribbean and Latin America..
