950 - Unid

Post by simbeav » 31 Aug 2017 22:35

Anybody know what this is ?

02:59 950 31/08/2017 - I'm afraid there is quite a bit of splatter just on the hour.

I was looking to see if there was an ethnic station in Canada or the US on 950, but I've just spotted that Eritrea is on this frequency.

Anybody able to confirm if this sounds like them ? I hear Metre Band mentioned a few times and they are on Short Wave.

thanks

Simon

Hi Simon,

Your 15sec to 30sec is a good match to the Interval Signals Online archive recording for Eritrea's Voice of the Broad Masses - Programme 1 in Tigrinya.
It's the first link here:

Thanks very much, spot on and at 02:56 I have more of that tune. Sounded like an odd mix between Cajun and Oriental when I first heard it.
I think the beginning of the announcement sounds like the WRTH ID, as well.
A new one to add to the log, anyway.
