Radio Free Asia 9370 AM 1313 UTC 10 Oct 2019

Not sure what language this was or where the TX from / to but I have heard it the last two days.

Signal not the best (3-3-3-3-2) but good enough to catch a clear "You have been listening to Radio Free Asia" in English at 1330UTC sign-off.

Only mention it because it doesn't seem to appear in any of the broadcast schedules I have found on online (including the RFA site).

That's interesting. According to the EIBI schedule, RFA is in Tibetan on that frequency, but at 0100-0300 and 2200-2300. Maybe they were sneaky and tried it at a different time to avoid jamming? (Assuming that you heard Tibetan - I think other, non-PRC-targeted broadcasts are not jammed, at least not as effectively as the ones in Tibetan, Mandarin and Cantonese.) Anyway, nice catch with the positive station ID.
