Cupid Radio, I guess.

152
Unidentified station in Portuguese has been received in Kyiv during continuous Es hop from France:
89.5 MHz - 0615-0650 UTC - 31 May 2020

Possible candidates:
1. TSF Rádio Notícias (broadcasts mostly news and reports, but can also play music on Sunday mornings. I have checked web stream of this station on one of next Sundays at the same time slot, and it is really playing music, but mostly contemporary pop).
2. Smooth FM (plays jazz and blues, does not match at all by music selection, I guess).
3. RTP Antena 1 (Açores) (has program Cantos da Casa (Fim de Semana) at this time with music very similar to that one on my mp3 recordings, but there is more elder presenter with different voice. RTP Antena 1 has audio archive of this show, but the program from 31st of May is not published yet). Distance is about 4580 km (!!!) from me. Pretty little chance to receive here, but not impossible!
Or another Portuguese-language station in Europe outside Portugal? I didn't find such ones.

Here is some phrase similar to ID at 00:06 (Radio...):

clip 3

I would be grateful for any help with translation of this phrase or any other help with identification of this station.

I overlayed spectrograms of the two sources, from the web site and from my recordings, and they are absolutely identical and exactly the same length.  I suspect whoever is transmitting this today actually got the audio from that web site.  The original jammer was not just a 20 second loop like this.

T!

I agree. I also think, the audio is not being played from original tape nowadays.

154
Hi, Token. Yes, I found this by myself. I just recalled that I have already heard this sound formerly.
Now I compared this sample with your recording once again, and I'm sure they are identical: I hear the same words.

155
The Soviet Union and its East European allies used six types of the jamming audio signals:

1.      To block out the "most anti-Soviet" stations, a wide spectrum electronically generated noise signal was used. RFE/RL, Voice of Israel, and Radio Tirana would experience this type of jamming.

2.      On August 3, 1964, one more source of interference was invented - Radio Mayak program, transmitted in FM mode and heard distorted on domestic receivers - to jam some "grey propaganda" stations such as VOA, BBC, Deutsche Welle, and R. Beijing.

3.      In 1976, Soviets started to use the speech resembling signal. Its advantage was that it conformed to the timbre of the human voice. This jamming sound, which used to be played back from open reel tapes, was composed of two voices of male and female Russian announcers.

4.      A unique case was the Polish service of RFE/RL: from 1971 until 1980 only light instrumental music was employed to jam it, both in clear AM and distorted FM modes.

5.      East Germany aired its domestic radio programs via medium wave transmitters tuned in to several hundred Herz outside of the RIAS frequencies.

6.      Czechoslovakia used the swinging carrier, also known as wobler, AM transmitters to jam RFE/RL.

Seems like this sample is used:

http://www.radiojamming.puslapiai.lt/sound/sound_speechresembling.mp3

There is looped recording with two mixed fragments of female and male voice speeches taken from programs of USSR All-Union Radio (the audio is NOT encrypted).

This sample is presented on Rimantas Pleikys' website, dedicated to deliberate radio jamming, as:
Speech-like signal (USSR 1976-1988, USSR/Poland  1980-1988)

Hi!

This is not Burmese. The station is Radio Romania International in Romanian language.

Echo of Hope has changed its frequency to run away from North Korean jammer. The same cat-and-mouse game is on 6250/6255 kHz.

Clandestine Stations / Cat-and-Mouse game on 6250 and 6350 kHz
« on: October 14, 2019, 1659 UTC »
It's interesting to watch that daily cat-and-mouse game on 6250/6255 and 6350/6355 kHz where COTB station Echo of Hope runs away from North Korean jammer. Recently the station has changed its frequency to 6255 kHz, but jammer followed it. The similar "game" can be observed 100 kHz upward.

I hear the Echo of Hope on 6250 kHz and behindhand noise jammer on 6255 kHz at the moment recalling the same situation with Kurdish clandestine broadcasters and Iranian bubble jammer near 4 MHz in the late 1990s.

Not a peep here by now.

Some really nice catches!  So you just used a 80mb dipole, not an FM antenna?  Were the stations ID'd by RDS?

Thanks. Yes, I'm mostly interested in SW, LW and MW signals, so I have no special VHF antenna here. All the stations were received with 80 mb shortwave dipole, that's why there are predominantly the most powerful transmitters in the list. The results could be better with some VHF Yagi or so.

I highlighted the stations identified by RDS by red.
