UNID 6977 USB 1700 UTC 15 FEB 2024
« on: February 22, 2024, 1048 UTC »
Almost every evening at 1700 UTC I can hear these communications on 6977 kHz USB.
I am in central Europe.
What can these be?
You can listen here: https://voca.ro/1hK3zLyV1tZx

The station is calling other stations for radiocheck. All called stations are numbers in French.
But not sure if these are official stations, because the others only reply "I could hear". Normally official stations would exchange information about the reception quality in radiochecks.

Listening more carefully I could hear the "callsign" of the caller station, the one that comes in stronger.
It appears to be saying Alpha Alpha Romeo so it could be a MARS excercise.
Other stations will always reply just with je t'écoute.
But is it strange they are speaking in French, normally English should be the language, isn't it?
