13020 out of band SOH Xi Wang Zhi Sheng or Chinese jamming S9+ 12:15UTC from Taiwan, however if being jammed by China, source heard might be from a different location. I really cannot tell the difference between Taiwanese and various Chinese languages to determine.

12:30 UTC - Loud and clear to my location. The EiBi database has this listed as CNR1 which is what I believe I am receiving.

FYI - Am reposting this info:

Here are a few suggestions for ways to confirm if a station is actually Sound of Hope (SOH) broadcasting
from Taiwan or CNR1 program jamming broadcasting from China (PRC).

1) One positive way is to listen at the top-of-the-hour. CNR1 programming always has time pips, while SOH
never has any.


2) Find a known CNR1 frequency, that is to say a non-jamming frequency (6125 kHz. works well for me!),
then check to find if it is // to the station in question.

3) SOH is a religious station (established by practitioners of the Falun Gong), so has a more refined format.
At ToH usually has news and then a lot of monologues. Rather rare to hear music (pop). While the CNR1
format is fairly contemporary; many short segments; often with music; in general it has a much more upbeat
format than SOH.

4) After many years of listening to SOH, I find their audio slightly muffled; not a lot, just enough to be noticeable,
especially when compared to the crisp audio of CNR1.

5) It is not uncommon for SOH to be slightly off frequency; while CNR1 is on the exact frequency (xx.00).

6) Finally, if the station in question has fair to good reception, it almost certainly is CNR1 program jamming. SOH
stations use rather low power, hence fair-good reception would be extremely rare.

7) Here is a brief audio of the top-of-the hour format for Sound of Hope, with email address ("S-O-H") and Chinese ID
by man and woman ("Xiwang zhi sheng guoji guangbo diantai" - Sound of Hope International Broadcast Station):

Ron thanks for the info, very informative. I will take your ideas into consideration when listening not just for this station but others as well.
