Notes:
1566 HLAZ is now appearing at 1800. Yes, the nights are really drawing in now.

Chinese time signals now being heard on 558, 639 (x2), 720 (CNR13?), 756, 900, 918 (x2), 981, 1017 1035, 1107, 1305, 1359 (Several!), 1368, 1404 & 1044.

Curiously, there is a 'half speed' Chinese time signal on 1278 at 2100. The pitch is the same, but the duration is twice that of the usual pips. Anybody know who this is?

1359 had FOUR discernible Chinese time signals.

Good DX!

I have uploaded recordings of three different outlets of Radio Pakistan on my YouTube channel.

1260 Radio Pakistan, Peshawar 1700 20-10-16 https://youtu.be/nHQCNTZignI
1170 Radio Pakistan, Peshawar 1700 17-10-16 https://youtu.be/pAUNP7ioIl0
585 Radio Pakistan, Faqirabad 1700 12-10-16 https://youtu.be/Jfh149GHcHY

Three short time pips. It sounds like these were done by hand as the first two sound slightly closer together than the second two. The most striking feature about their top of the hour routine is their bright news style jingle. A good one for penetrating through the noise.

My 1170 recording has a comparison where I play my own off-air recording, then a recording of the same from the Interval Signals website. The only difference is that the ID is in English from intervalsignals.com
