Asian language talk show booming into upstate NY - nothing turns up in a search of this frequency, and this appears to be outside the standard broadcast bands. I'm using SDR Console, and judging by reception via networked radios, reception is strongest in northeastern North America. Can someone ID this? Thanks!

Most likely CNR1 used for jamming against one of Sound of Hope's low power transmitters.

Eibi has this frequency listed for SOH and the CNR1 jammer, any time from 2100 UTC through 1600 UTC the following day. I'm with prldx, it's most likely the jammer and not SOH due to the former's known high power and the latter's known low power.

Doesn't CNR1 usually use Firedrake for this purpose? The transmission I heard was clearly a talk show with multiple announcers. Perhaps this is typical - I just haven't come across a reference to this being done.

CNR1 programme is more often used for jamming than Firedrake-music.
