UNID Chinese language on 6865 - four recordings from 2021
« on: November 06, 2022, 1648 UTC »
Tidying up some old computer files and found these four recordings from almost exactly a year ago. All are Chinese, and all from 6865 kHz right around local sunrise here in the Washington, D.C. area. If anyone cares to have a listen and confirm or correct my assumptions about them I'd be grateful.

This one (19 Nov 2021) I am virtually certain is CNR jamming Sound of Hope, because of the five time pips at the top of the 1200 hour (near the end of the recording):

But then, after almost exactly two minutes of dead air at the top of the hour, I caught another, much weaker Chinese language broadcast from 1202 to 1232. It is very hard to hear, but there are some (maybe) intelligible snippets, especially in the last ten or twelve minutes. Is this Sound of Hope?

This one (22 Nov 2021) the first 7-8 minutes are pretty listenable, after that it becomes tough copy. Probably also CNR. Curiously, around 4m 40s you can hear "Pop Goes the Weasel" in the background:

This one (26 Nov 2021) I am also virtually certain is CNR because of the five time pips at the top of the hour (near the end of the recording):
