6316kHz UNID in French

Post by jotagarzon » 15 Aug 2019 09:51


On 13th and 14th August I noticed a signal on 6.316 kHz from an unknown station. I noticed it in recordings made to check noise floors in two different Grid locators. In both, the signal was good enough to hear details (S2-S3).

The language was French and went off both days in between 06:30 and 06:32 UTC. French but with a strong African accent. On 13th they played reguetón music; on 14th they aired an event at live, performed by DJ Arafat (Côte d'Ivoire) a week ago. This guy was dead in a car accident just a couple of days before (so it was a kind of homage). Côte d'Ivoire left SW bands some years back.

I tried to record it sooner this morning but I heard nothing from 05:50 to 06:35 UTC. Conditions were good enough, simply the station did not broadcast today.

Any idea about this?

Thank you very much!
