Fake(?) time signals station on 10000 kHz
« on: June 25, 2012, 2335 UTC »
Right now on 10000 kHz plays instrumental music, FSK bursts and short time announcements by male voice probably in Italian. On 2300 and 2315 were long announcements by female voice. Not strong here with a constant QRM from PPE Observatório Nacional (Brazil), BPM (China) and sometimes from OHR.

Could that be Turino?  I thought at one point they had a signal on 10mHz, though I could be nuts.

IBF station from Torino transmitted on 5000 kHz many years ago and IBF commemorative transmissions were several months ago on 5000 kHz too.

There is another station on 10000 kHz now with another format.They mention JN53DV locator (near Pisa).

10000,0 . 0054 . Italcable Time Signal, reported new Italian time signal station, instrumental music clearly audible between each minute, announcement by woman in Italian at 0059, covered by WWV, but music fairly clear in usb mode, 22441 (Thanks to Alexandr in Ukraine for the tip in chat)

Website says "Authorized by the Ministry of Econimic Development" (google translate).  If true I guess it's legal
