Can anyone tell me what I am hearing on 3.965 every night at 0400 GMT.  Sounds like German AM shortwave. Where did this come from?  Did I miss a new band plan?

Thanks,

It could have been WYFR Okeechobee Florida. They're scheduled at 0400 UTC on 3955 kHz in German.

3950 to 4000kHz is the 75m broadcast band in some regions. Even the BBC used to transmit there, possibly still do. Amateurs in Region 1 have no allocation above 3800kHz.

There have been SWBC stations in this slice of spectrum for years.

According to the WRTH, there are only three SW transmitters listed as using this frequency, and all three are located in France.  One is Radio France International and two are relays from Taiwan.  None show German language broadcasts for the timeframe you mention.  Deutsche Welle does have an outlet on 3995, however.
