SOH(?) 6970 kHz AM Jan 1, 2015 1630 UTC
« on: January 01, 2015, 1637 UTC »
1635Z 35433 S7 Asian language YL (Chinese?) with music. Decent signal, but no ID yet from 1631-1636 UTC. Short-wave.info has listed as SOH in Chinese. But also has listed 0.1 kW. Either propagation is fantastic or 100W is wrong.

1649Z 25422 S6 Signal dropping. S5 noise.

1700Z Off.

Never heard an ID.


Perseus SDR with Wellbrook ALA-1530S+ loop

Doesn't 100 kW seem more reasonable, in line with what we're hearing?

I've often wondered what this was. The carrier is always there in the late afternoon from late fall until early spring here in the southern Appalachians.

I've heard music there occasionally, but the audio is generally too weak to copy.
