0238 Numbers in Chinese, TFC tune and YL with ID, old Studebaker advert


Actually, those numbers were in Vietnamese.  That was a clip of the Vietnamese numbers station V30.

Really interesting, and eclectic, mix of content on 6955 kHz USB.  I tuned in late, but still interesting.

Thanks for the show Final Count Down!  S7 or a bit more into the Mojave Desert of California.

(edit) Off at 0358 UTC, faded out with the full song The Final Count Down and then several renditions of the 8 bit sounding bars of the same song.
