What Shofar sounds were blasted to announce the Yovel year?
וְהַֽעֲבַרְתָּ֞ שׁוֹפַ֤ר תְּרוּעָה֙ בַּחֹ֣דֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִעִ֔י בֶּעָשׂ֖וֹר לַחֹ֑דֶשׁ בְּיוֹם֙ הַכִּפֻּרִ֔ים תַּעֲבִ֥ירוּ שׁוֹפָ֖ר בְּכָל־אַרְצְכֶֽם׃
Then you shall sound the horn loud; in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, the Day of Atonement, you shall have the horn sounded throughout your land.
From here the Sages learn, that the shofar blast that announces the Yovel year must resemble the shofar blast that is sounded on Rosh Hashanah:
A long blast, a broken blast, and again, a long blast.
(Rosh Hashanah 26b)
