6225-USB, Chinese military (Navy), tuned in 1339
till 1351*, Dec 11. Chinese numbers; also heard them back
in Aug. 2011 on 9000-USB; here is what they sounded like
back then https://app.box.com/s/vuz3sn373be28oeg6289 .
Keith Perron explained back then - "This is not the Taiwan
number station . . . This station comes from China . . . The
station is operated by the Chinese Navy and is very active
during military exercises. It's in no way a spy station . . . The
reason it sounds the way it does is because of the old
technology being used to generate the numbers. Back in
the 70s Taiwan's number station sounded the same until
there was an equipment upgrade in the late 70s or early 80s . . ."

FB audio about Japanese "HAIKU".
"HAIKU" is the short fixed form poetry consisting of a 5-7-5 total of 17 sound,
including ("KI-GO") one word that represents the season.
It will entrust my thoughts and landscape to 17 characters.

Sample (by MATSUO BASHO) ** famous poet of Japan.


Season("KI-GO") : autumn = "AKI-HUKAKI" = "Autumn deepens"
Mean : Autumn deepens, hills and fields will miss is when comes to
somehow feel lonely person, such as that of the neighbors
come worrisome.

Dec 30 found CNR1 on a new 6225 kHz. at 1349; // 6125. 

Is this CNR1 jamming against SOH or who?

CNR1 : 6075/6225kHz XYZ - Dec 31, 2015 05:17 UTC No.651

I think that it is spurious to come out to be the winter period every year.

Mutual interference wave of 6125kHz and 6175kHz
6125 - (6175 - 6125) = 6075 kHz
6175 + (6175 - 6125) = 6225 kHz

However, there has come out strong UNID signal than this spurious wave in recent 6075kHz.

Jan 4 on 7200.00 was another day of not only CNR1 (jamming) continuing on past
usual cut off time of 1300, but RTI also kept going. Myanmar was also noted
mixing with the other two. Assumed they would all close down at 1400, as I
recently noted, but not so. Myanmar Radio stayed on all alone till suddenly
off at 1437*; after 1400 was completely in the clear when I tuned in at 1406;

Thanks to Bernd Friedewald (DK9FI) for the following email: 

"Many thanks for the tip. Great!

Just put on PERSEUS SDR in Japan and they are still there
at 1642 UTC. Looks for test...

I remember when I was at the HFCC conference at Dallas
we visited Continental. Here we saw a 100kw (or more)
transmitter(s) available for delivery to South Korea.
Maybe this is one of them because KBS is still using the
very old transmitters."

Appreciate his feedback.
