Additional VORW Radio test transmissions this weekend

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, TheReportOfTheWeek, who writes:

Starting this Thursday (March 1st) I will be conducting a test transmission of VORW Radio Int. on 5950 kHz via radio station WRMI. The intended reception area is the state of Florida! This is understandably tricky considering that the transmitter site is in the target area itself, but this test is to determine if listeners in Florida can be adequately served via this Florida-based site.

Also, here is the full broadcast schedule, each show features some misc talk and commentary and some listener requested music. It can make for a fun listen!

Thursday 2000 UTC – 7780 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – Eastern North America
Thursday 2300 UTC – 9955 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – South America
Friday 0000 UTC (Thu 7 PM Eastern) – 7730 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – Western North America
Friday 0100 UTC – 9455 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – Central America
Friday 0100 UTC – 9395 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – North America
Friday 0100 UTC – 7780 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – Eastern North America (additional)
Friday 0100 UTC – 5950 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – Test transmission to Florida (additional)
Friday 0100 UTC – 5850 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – North America

They are going to broadcast for Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and England.
I have a video of this test broadcast [below].

We have not discovered who is behind this radio station.
