Taiwan - Sound of Hope IDs in English
« on: March 29, 2018, 0116 UTC »
TAIWAN. 6230 kHz., Sound of Hope, 1411-1425+ UTC, March 28. News segment with brief musical bridges that are
played between items; the same music has been used for many years, which certainly helps ID SOH; 1421 UTC clear
ID in English for "Sound of Hope," otherwise in Chinese; fair reception, listening in LSB to get away from VMW
(Australia Weather West), which is in USB. Very rare to catch CNR1 (China) jamming SOH here.

Recently have been monitoring SOH here and find they occasionally give these IDs in English, but are rather random
and not at any set time, so it may take considerable listening before one hears them. My audio clip posted at
http://goo.gl/y5tvbP (ID at 0:42 on my audio) (music bridge at 2:18 on my audio).

Amano-san has provided excellent details of my SOH audio clip. As always, I greatly appreciate his input. Ron

"I was listening to your SOH reception audio.

Your audio clip at http://goo.gl/y5tvbP

0:40-0:48 "Ting-ting, Xiwang zhi sheng, Sound of Hope, Quan shijie huaren de guoji guangbo diantai."

In English, "Let's listen, Xiwang zhi sheng, Sound of Hope, International broadcasting for the Chinese people around the world."

Nice catch from California! Ron-san.
6230kHz, SOH is the output 1 kW in Aoki List."
