V26 Chinese number station on 7345 kHz.
« on: May 10, 2016, 1630 UTC »
RUSSIA. 7345, Radio Sakha, 1056-1126 & 1151-
1235 on May 10. Sounded like Russian; 1100 brief IS
(Jew's harp); time pips; seemed to be the news being
read for 10 minutes; 1105 break for "Radio Sakha" ID
by different announcer; 1110 ad or promo and into
music show playing ballads. This station plays a lot
of nice music!

Did not sign off at 1200 as they recently had been
reported, but clearly continued on; same format as
after 1100 (seemed to be the news being read for
10 minutes; 1205 break for "Radio Sakha" ID by
different announcer; 1210 ad or promo and into
music show).

From 1151 to 1235 had increasing QRM from Thazin
Radio (Myanmar), but Radio Sakha was stronger. At
1158 had to go to LSB, to get away from V26 Chinese
numbers station that was on frequency in USB.
Unable
to tell about 7295 due to OTH radar the few times I did
check

V26 is on 7345 kHz daily, several times a day.  This frequency is normally a set with 4243 Khz and 9054 kHz, simulcast on all three freqs.

There is no specific time schedule, it just shows up on that set of freqs several times a day.  The other "set" it uses is 4283 // 7553 // 9153 kHz.  However it also uses 8073 kHz, and I have not really gotten my head around which set of freqs that goes with.

The mode is mostly USB, however I have seen the station use LSB and AM also.  In fact, more than once, I have seen all three freqs in a set active at one time, same traffic on all three, and each frequency in a different mode, so that LSB, AM, and USB were all in use at the same time on different freqs.
