How much is known about the Amdr's individual RMA? Trimm capabilities, weight, power etc? (apart from 144 trm/rma)
I don't believe those kind of information are allowed to be released. If you see them on the web, its likely someone's conjecture. 144 TRM means 144 transmit/receive modules per RMA, or in a more layman's language, its like a subarray. Typically, AESAs are built into into subsections and groups.

144 x 37 RMAs means 5328 T/R elements. Assuming the distance of each element from each other is about 1/2 of the S-band wavelength used, you can get the size of the array. Each element is separated from each other in a triangular formation. S-band is about 15 cm to 7.5cm. Each RMA would be a matrix of about 12 x 12 elements on an X and Y dimension.

That's more than the SPY-1D(V) which is about 4,300 elements. Around on par with the Type 346 family which is around 5,000 to 6,000 elements per face.

LOL of course some members are Chinese citizens -- the Ministry of State Security (or something like that) operatives checking for leaks, to trace and later catch the leakers

That's possible, but not very probably. All of the Chinese sources I see here are second hand sources from the Chinese internet. If they really want to catch the leakers, they would need to focus more on the Chinese internet.
