This is a high possibility of erroneous transmission of CNR-1 jamming
for the BBC-Uzbec on 4790kHz.

Mistype: 4-7-9-0 --> 4-9-7-0

Always I have been helped by advice of Hiroshi.

Re: CHINA : CNR China National Radio - Ron Howard Jan 17, 2016 17:25 UTC No.759

Interesting situations with Chinese jamming.

4970 kHz. - Thanks to Hiroyuki-san and Hiroshi recently
monitoring the presents of CNR1 on this very unusual
frequency, which for many years had been solely occupied
by AIR Shillong (INDIA); has been heard from about
1245 to 1330. Jan 17 at 1330, I also noted CNR1 on 4970.

Thanks very much to Hiroshi's excellent deductive reasoning,
we can now assume that China has misentered 4970 instead
of 4790. Logically the intended target of the jamming is BBC
Uzbek on 4790, which is scheduled from 1300 to 1330. Believe
the mystery is now solved, thanks to Hiroshi!

6145 kHz. - On Jan 13, after listening to Qinghai PBS till 1400,
heard CNR1 (non-echo) jamming RTI.

Jan 15, both Glenn Hauser and I both heard Firedragon (Chinese
music jamming) after 1400.

Jan 17 at 1511 with CNR1 echo jamming against RTI; has been
a long time since I last heard this type of jamming. Audio at

Ron, listening in San Francisco at Ocean Beach, California

Re: CHINA : CNR China National Radio - Ron Howard Jan 17, 2016 17:52 UTC No.760
Actually heard CNR1 back in December!


** CHINA. 4970, CNR1. For years I have enjoyed hearing
AIR Shillong here during my normal listening time (1200-
1400). Dec 16 heard *1055 with AIR IS, followed by IDs in
both Hindi & English.

Dec 15 & 16 QRM from CNR1 (clearly // 6125), mixing
with AIR about 1300. Have never heard this before. Why
would I now be hearing China here? (Ron Howard, San

4790kHz BBC-Tajik

-1245-(around) c/on, No jamming.

1300- Noise jamming only, No CNR-1 jamming.

Re: CHINA : CNR China National Radio - Ron Howard Jan 21, 2016 14:39 UTC No.782
Jan 21

4790 - BBC - open carrier 1247; at 1259 brief intro (no music today) and time pips; off at 1330*.
CODAR QRM very strong here and BBC was weak, so unable to comment on any other type of
jamming that might be here, but no CNR1 (program jamming) heard here.

4970 - AIR Shillong; 1239 with "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion; about 1246 CNR1
started (// 6125) till off shortly after 1330; mixing with AIR.

So for over a month now China has been locked on 4970 instead of 4790. They may never
notice they are on the wrong frequency??

Re: CHINA : CNR China National Radio - XYZ Jan 21, 2016 15:02 UTC No.783

In the case of China, there are many frequencies that broadcasting
the target was moved, continue to broadcast Jamming.

Hi Ron, very nice recording.

For those struggling with Chinese SA's I'd like to add that CNR12 Chinese channel name is "Yule Guangbo" meaning more "Entertainment Radio" than (what they say on air in English) "Happy Radio".

In your recording after the Beijing time announcement for 21 hours there is a formal SA at 0.09 as "Zhongyang Renmin Guangbo Diantai, AM 7-4-7, Yule Guangbo". At 0.34, when the man starts talking, he gives SA "Yule Guangbo" , repeated later at 3.34 and 3.48.

On July 24, 2018, the Voice of China conducted the second test of DRM digital AM
broadcasting during the year.
According to the official information, the frequency used in this test is 6030 kHz,
and the transmission time is 04:25-02:05 Beijing time, which is consistent with the
transmission time of the original analog signal.
During the test period, routine shutdown maintenance was conducted from 14:00-17:00
on Tuesday, Beijing time.

The original analog signal power of 6030 kHz is 100 kW, which is the same as the
first test launch at the end of January this year. The DRM digital AM broadcast
power is only 30 kW.
It is mainly for launching in North China, and most areas in central and eastern
China can receive signals. Unscheduled downtime during testing based on equipment
commissioning or testing needs.

At the same time, the launch pad staff welcomes conditional enthusiasts to listen
to and record the detailed receiving information, and feedback the feedback to the
official to improve the launching work.
Feedback Email:

Frequency change (information is continuously updated during the test)
It stopped at 10:00 on July 25 and resumed at 11:30.
Starting at 09:00 on July 26, the modulation mode is changed to 64QAM, and it is
expected to return to the original mode at 09:00 on July 27.

The 6030kHz was briefly tested and launched on July 13th, 2018, from 09:00 to 15:00.
The content of the launch was ethnic music. The following is the reception situation
at that time.
In addition, Japan's BCLer also received the DRM test signal from China Voice at
6030 kHz on the evening of July 23, which may have started the test work ahead of
