Can you help Ben identify this test transmission?

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Ben (PA2OLD), who writes:

On Saturday August 5 we heard a test broadcast at 6160 kHz AM in English, early in the evening.

They are going to broadcast for Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and England.
I have a video of this test broadcast [below].

We have not discovered who is behind this radio station.

Thanks for sharing, Ben. Can anyone ID this test broadcast?  Please comment!

    Have been looking out for them but coincidently not heard yet 🙂 glad another one fills the 49 meter band ! At the hours I work from home (Central Germany), I often have the Sony ICF7600 GR plus AN-LP1 loop on following the current ongoings on the 49 meter band,
