Moved from 6220 to escape Iranian jamming, the test tone has gone from 6220 now. Probably itt will be soon on 6230. Nice cat-mouse game!

There is religious talk on there in Arabic, Shia Muslim Islamic talk about Shia holy places in in Iraq .... I conclude this from words and phrases I am hearing and recognise.

Don't you mean that the Iranian station has moved to 6230 to escape jamming by the tone station?
The station that was on 6210 and 6220 is not the one on 6230. It was never that strong. It's back on 6210/1395 now. 6230 is some other arabic thing with religious singing etc

There's a "Persian or Farsi language" station that is weaker, which was below the stronger Arabic language religious Shia Islam broadcast.  I think the weaker Persian language broadcast may have been Radio Farda, sponsored by the US government and often relayed from the United Arab Emirates.

The high power Arabic language signal, due to it's Shia religious content, will not have been broadcast from any of the Sunni Arab states, so that narrows it down to Iran (likely), Iraq (less likely) or Hezbollah in Lebannon (probably not).

The only thing I know for certain is the content that I heard, the rest is an educated guess.  I was unable to triangulate the signals, not even crudely, but there were large night time skip zones which gave rough clues to the stations origins.  My money is on Iran transmitting the Arabic language religious signal, probably to jam Radio Farda (the weaker signal) on the same frequency

Not Farda.
Look for : Iran International TV
a TV station based in London and transmitting via Internet and satellite (?).
Now, the audio of Iran International TV is relayed via Armenia,
on 1395, 6210/6230, and 11570/11590 kHz.
What we hear mostly in Europe is the Iranian jamming on the SW channels
(maybe also on 1395 ? I don't know).
On 6230, there's still another radio war in Far East (said to be China jamming SOH).
