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!

    I just came across this station at 11:00UTC, Monday, 16 October, via the Twente SDR (cheating, as I’m in the USA), so they’re still going. I approve of their musical message!

    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,
