Das war die Antwort aus Woofferton.

Thank you for your report and I confirm the details are correct. These
transmissions were to fault-find on a 250/300 kW sender at the UK HF
transmitter station at Woofferton in England.
These duration of these tests can be variable as the engineers can
sometimes need a long time to establish a fault or they may interrupt the
test, make an adjustment and resume. This is particularly so if the fault
is of an intermittent nature.
 Encompass Digital Media, Woofferton is the only remaining UK HF sender
broadcast station and also is the only one with this transmission test
audio and email address.
 The audio is contained in a file play-out system and incorporates
non-copyright music and voice announcements from one of the engineers,
Martin, 2E1EKX at the transmitter site.
There is a Club amateur radio station on site with the callsign M0WOF and
the operators are Matt G8XYJ, Dave M0MYA, Gillian M0OVW,  John G1JOD and
Martin 2E1EKX.
The amateur radio repeater GB3VM that was on site has recently been moved
and the history of it is here

Thanks for your interest.

 (Retired) Senior Transmitter Engineer Woofferton 1982-2012
