VOT uses this frequency solely for their 2200 to 2300UTC broadcast in
English to Eastern North America,.
Well, at least 3 times in the last 2 weeks, I've heard the broadcast
continue after 2300UTC.
The interval tune without speech will play out after the English language
transmission ends, and about 2256, it will hiccup and restart with speech
in German saying "This is the voice of turkey". and then a broadcast in
German will commence.
German isn't scheduled at this time of day, it happens much earlier.
The transmission in German will continue anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes
before being abruptly shut off in mid sentence.
I suspect that the Turksat 3A or Turksat 4A satelitte feed from Ankara is
what feeds the Emirler Shortwave transmitter site. And, when the english
broadcast ends on the satellite next up is German and since the 9830khz
transmitter doesn't shut off, that's what we hear.
