Restoration efforts continue today at WRMI. Engineers were trying to fix the transmission lines for transmitter 5 (9455 kHz) this morning, but the ground is very wet, muddy, and swampy, and two trucks have become stuck in the swamp.

Hurricane Ian has put all WRMI transmitters off the air at their site in Okeechobee, Florida:
Hurricane update as of 0300 UTC Thursday, September 29:
All power is out at the transmitter site and all transmitters are off the air until power comes back on. We have no idea when that will be at this point. We have power in our control room and we have Internet service. So our webstream is operating. It's completely dark outside, so we have no idea about antenna damage until perhaps sometime tomorrow. High winds are expected to continue for most or all of Thursday, so power company crews will not be able to do any work. We'll keep you updated here on Facebook.
5 hours earlier WRMI had posted:
Hurricane update as of 2203 UTC Wednesday:
Winds are getting much higher here, and 15770 kHz has gone down, unfortunately. We still have 7780, 9955 and 5950 kHz on the air.

The BBC has announced deep cuts to its World Service output that will result in the loss of hundreds of jobs, saying it has been forced to act by the government’s ongoing licence fee freeze.
Major cuts to BBC World Service were announced this morning (29 Sept 2022). The details are very extensive, but one headline is that 10 BBC languages will cease being aired by radio and will become online/TV only. They are: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Persian, Kyrgyz, Tamil, Urdu and Uzbek.
