  • unID 88.7---I believe to be WTMI NY

    Here is an unID recorded today while we were out of the house....it sure sounds to me like "WTMI" and "wtmiradio.com", and R-L shows no other call letters sounding like it. Only 600 watts....can anyone confirm?

    Quite a swath today---also heard not long before it was WAGO in NC.

    BTW "WTMI" were the calls of a long famous classical music station in Miami, giving up the ghost in 2001.

    I hear WCMI Radio, but naturally that's not it and WTMI would make the most sense, not to mention the URL actually exists. I would suggest listening to their live stream on their website for some time and waiting for anything that sounds similar to what you heard, like the wording or the women's voice to match. If not that, send them the clip to confirm. Probably them via Es.

      Definitely WTMI

      In case there was any doubt over the call letters, there is no doubt about the station slogan "The Station of the Cross", clearly heard on your clip. This is surely WTMI.

      Look at the attached antenna pattern for WTMI. They are of course 600 watts in the maximum directions, but they have a deep null south, a little east of you, with about 20 watts effective in the null. Toward you, Christopher, it's closer to 30 watts. Not bad at all!!!!

            Thanks all.

            @ChrisC---I heard "WCMI" as well at the start, and if I listened online, I would likely only get the network, not WTMI---WTMI is not the flagship as I see it. But thank you.

            @ChrisL---30 watts my way is great, but I'm thinking, as this was Es reception, instead of directional patterns on a map, shouldn't we look at how many watts are directed "upward"?

              Awesome catch And you actually can listen to the individual stations via their website for that network complete with their own TOH IDs.

                That's true, Chistopher, and there's no telling how the radiation changes as you go "up". At your distance, the elevation angle is only a couple of degrees, but it could make a big difference. However you look at, it's a great catch. I've never heard any of the "Station of the Cross" stations here.
