Voice of the Strait, CHINA – 4900 kHz

Next in the log on 9th October 2021, was the Voice of the Strait broadcasting from Fuzhou City in China on 4900 kHz.

I tuned in at 1153 UTC. The program was in the Chinese language.

The Voice of the Strait was founded on the 24th day of August 1958 and is located in Fuzhou City in Fujian province. Its predecessor was the PLA Fujian Front Line Broadcasting Station.

The station is owned by the People’s Liberation Army of China.

The target audience is Taiwan. In 2015 the unit which operates Voice of the Strait was transferred from the People’s Liberation Army General Political Department to the People’s Liberation Army Strategic Support Force which is primarily responsible for psychological warfare operations against Taiwan.

The Voice of the Strait website states:-

The Voice of the Straits has become an air bridge for spreading news and information and communicating cross-strait emotions with the concept of sincere communication, rich and colorful content, and lively and diverse forms.”

More information can be found on their website at……

The Voice of the Strait was coming in nicely with a good strong signal and minimal interference from adjacent stations. Fading on the signal was slight. There were some static crashes on the band.


Below is a short video of my reception of The Voice of the Strait on my Tecsun S-2000 and a Tecsun random wire just a few feet off the ground.
