11770 kHz, "VON"

Something new! Label says "VON" and it is supposed to be "Oldies Music". Any clues?
S7 - S9+5 dB with Fading, country is "BW" and the sound is missing.

Suddenly there was some kind of music during the second log. The signal disappeared at 1519 UTC.

Friedrich, good point. (OMG, I did not see THAT label!!)

ISO3 ISO2 Name
BWA BW Botsuana

I thought it was Baden-Wuertenberg !! But fair enough, it said "Other language". Some of the songs were in English. I caught 28 minutes of sound on HDD. The SNR peaked at 30 dB here - I wonder where the TX was.

This label I saw, but I was not here at the end of the transmission.

Terje, as you can see from my screenshot the label showed "Hausa" as language.
As far as I understand from Wikipedia Hausa is spoken in Ghana, Nigeria etc..
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hausa_(Sprache)
...very strange...

At a guess this may be the Voice of Nigeria testing one of their new transmitters at Abuja.

@ Kevin, probably you are right, VON and Hausa match.
Here is the station, copy and paste into Google Earth:
8.964701, 7.362996

Obviously they have ambitions going digital:
http://mt-shortwave.blogspot.com/200...should-be.html
"The Director-General said that on completion, the project would produce a radio station with capability to broadcast in digital and analogue systems on the short wave band."

11770 kHz is also listed as one of their frequencies:

Yes, that's why I said "OMG, I saw that now". The last 10 minutes I was out of the office - all the time before that it only said "Other language" and "BW". VON - Voice Of Nigeria - makes sense. And, during my first log there was absolutely NO sound at all - not even any residue of hum or anything.

Hi all,

AM on this frequency this morning. Same kind of music as during the afternoon yesterday mixed with carrier only, some talk, 1000 Hz test tone and sometimes just a carrier wave.

One give-away was a male voice mentioning "Book Fair in Nigeria" just before 0930 UTC.

Now 1110 UTC DRM: "TEST TRANSMISSION VON". But from where? (The second line never showed up).

The receiving conditions were not so good today, or they beamed in another direction. China chewed in the upper part of the DRM spectrum and a co-channel carrier did not help either.
