A few times in January as already in the autumn this channel 1287 kHz - which is now pretty "clean" of European QRM gave us a station from China which is very interesting. As a matter of fact it was heard first which a bit strange IDs as "iHome Radio" (slogan in English). When I heard it first it actually sounded like "iPhone Radio". Anyway the station was revealed by MR with his Chinese friends to be "Weifang Jingji Guangbo Dientai" and it has also these Englsih slogans during the TOH IDs. In fact the latest edition of WRTH says this channel is "i Home Service" ! Yes, the WRTH knows!
This channel 1287 has been nice to check the reception of the Far East and South East Asian stations also in Southern Finland this season as it has given as also at least (a dominant) JOHR Sapporo, MBC Korea and a station in Thailand in the afternoon.
Weifang is situated in Shandong Province and it is called a "kite capital of the world".
As it is a New Year´s Day in China - I wish everyone a Happy New Rabbit's Year !
