Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(26) [Ron Howard]
CHINA. 6060 // 7225, Sichuan PBS-2, 1400 UT, April 14. Pleased to find them still with the usual multi-language
SAs at ToH - "Sìchuān mínzú guǎngbò, Sichuan Ethnic Radio"; indigenous music/singing; 6060 slightly better
reception.

KOREA SOUTH. VOH: On 4890, April 16, from 1340 to 1347 UT, Choi Soo-jin's "Morning Special" EBS news
program in English and Korean; not just a news show, but really a language lesson, explaining the meaning
of many of the words used in the news; today's show was originally broadcast via EBS FM on March 29, so
actually old news (item "EBS Radio unveils its new programming lineup today," etc.).

VOH: On 9100, April 9 (Friday), at 1154 UT, with the weekday EBS (Educational Broadcasting System -
https://www.ebs.co.kr/main ) produced English language lesson; as always with a good signal (audio
attached). On Sunday (11th), at 0729, the weekend only reading of a Harry Potter story in both English
and Korean. Seems that all the VOH English language programs (news, etc.) are from EBS FM. VOH
continuing with a repeating four hour program loop.

National Unity Radio, 9475, from 1245 to 1246 UT, on April 16 (Friday) with brief Chinese language lesson;
started and ended with Joyce Chu singing "Hao xiang ni - I Miss You“; mostly in Korean; gave a few words
in Chinese and a sentence using the words; "Wǒ hǎo gǎndòng" (I am very touched); fair, even with N. Korea
jamming; Amano, listening in Japan, heard the same program today, but with considerably stronger jamming
than I heard. On April 19 (Monday), for the first time on this frequency, noted no N. Korea jamming during the
1243-1244 Chinese language lesson.

Voice of Freedom, remains buried on 6045, under very strong super jamming from N. Korea, from 1120+ UT, on
April 19; totally unusable signal.

April 19 (Monday), with frequencies for this week:

Voice of the People: 3480 // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1115 UT.

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3990 // 4885 // 6000 (QRM) // 6250 // 6355 // 9100, at 1105 UT.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1530-1559 UT, April 14 (Wednesday). The usual English segment;
1539, "We Are Unity" song after the news and "weather news"; 1551, Wed. only "VOA Words and
Their Stories" program ("On March 17 in many places around the world, people celebrate Saint
Patrick’s Day," etc.); 1559 blocked by CRI start-up.

Myanmar Radio, 5985, with the Wednesday and Friday editions of "Learning English with BBC,
Burmese"; April 14 (Wed.), from 1252 to 1302 UT and April 16 (Fri.) from 1241 to 1251 UT; "Survey
of workers . . 'Give and take' is about many things . . They still have bosses . . Adults need 8 hours
of sleep . . I am an early riser . . I always get to bed early," etc.; semi-readable.

VANUATU. 3945 // 7890 (harmonic) // 11835 (harmonic, with best reception), Radio Vanuatu, 1034-1100 UT,
April 19. Unusual to be able to hear all three frequencies; preaching in Bislama and many religious songs;

Your audio Myanmar Radio, the "Say It In English" program sounds very clear.
I also listened to Myanmar Radio on 9730 kHz before 1100 UT when KNLS started.

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, 1000-1100 UTC, Apr. 28 (Wednesday).
At 1000 UT, the strong signal CNR1 Jammer stopped.
I heard female Burmese and SOH Chinese.
The signal on Myanmar Radio was a little weak at first, but over time the signal came up.
It became quite easy to hear around 1100 UT, but I was still worried about SOH Chinese interference.

Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom back on 5920 kHz. [Amano]
KOREA SOUTH. back on alternate frequency 5920 (ex: 6045), 1129-1305, May 4 (Tuesday).
I feel like there is bubble jamming on 5920 kHz, but It doesn't have much interference.
It was received on the lower side due to the interference of CNR5 on the upper side.
-1158-, I changed the frequency to sync on USB to center it, considering the interference of the lower CRI.
However, the interference of CNR5 on the upper side was strong.
-1202-, changed to sync on LSB. There was almost no CRI interference.
My audio is at attached.

Re: RTM Wai FM on 11665 kHz. [Amano]
MALAYSIA. 11665, RTM Wai FM, 1310-1400* UTC, May 4 (Tuesday).
As Ron says, the sound is certainly bad.
It feels like the broadcast sound is delayed by a few seconds and the same sound is mixed with a distorted sound.
Even though the signal is strong, it's a shame.
The broadcast stopped just at 1400 UTC.
The end time seems to vary slightly from day to day. (-1400v *)
After the Wai FM stopped, I checked Sarawak FM on 9835 kHz and found that it had already stopped.

Ron-san - I listened to your audio, the unique Wai FM SA's.
It sounds very good and is enjoy to listen to.
A lot of unique SA’s also were broadcast on May 4 at Wai FM on 11665 kHz from 1311 UTC.
A song that included Sarawak in the lyrics that was broadcast just before the end of the broadcast on May 3 was also broadcast at this timing.

There was a bit of North Korean jamming, but the VOF sounded clear.
The ending of "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is power) was heard very well.
My audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4718.mp3 .
At 1800, there was a station name, a time signal announcement, and VOF SJ before the start of "Bodo gwangjang (News plaza)".
After that, the program proceeded according to the VOF's one-day program guide.

Re: Voice of Freedom on 5920 kHz at 1500 UTC. [Amano]
Hi Ron-san - Thank you for the VOF reception report around 1500 UTC.
It became a great reference for me!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
July 6 (Tuesday), found VOF (5920) not worth recording at 1500 UT, as there was strong QRM from Vatican
Radio on 5920, via the Philippines (*1430+).

Voice of Freedom, 5920, on July 12, at 1130 UT with program "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing Is Power),
which SA again at 1156; then at 1200, a single tone; VOF SA and station singing jingle; program "Bodo
gwangjang" (News Plaza); clear of any jamming, so good reception, whereas there was strong N. Korea
jamming that ended about 1100; later the NK jamming starts up again about 1358, in anticipation of the
*1405 start of Shiokaze (5920); shortly after Shiokaze signed off (1435*), the N. Korean ends, but at
1430, there is the strong start of Vatican Radio (5920). So for me, the best time for VOF reception is
between about 1100 to 1358 UT.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today I tried to receive VOF on 5920 at 1500 UT.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1455-1505 UT, July 16 (Thursday).
Perhaps it's jamming for Shiokaze, North Korean jamming is strong.
Still, I can hear VOF.
At 1500 UT, I heard the time signal announcement before the start of "Bodo gwangjang" (News plaza).
At 1503 UT, North Korean jamming has stopped.
Behind the VOF, a station believed to be Vatican Radio heard.
My audio attached.
* 00:00-04:10 1459’50“-1504’00“ UTC
* 00:10- a single tone; the time signal announcement;
’Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo ja-jeong eul allyeodeulibnida.’
In English, ’Voice of Freedom has announced at midnight (1500 UTC).’
* 03:06- At 1502’56“ UT, North Korean jamming has stopped.

The audio of the time signal announcement before the start of the "Bodo gwangjang" (News plaza) broadcast is all there.
I edited and summarized the following articles.

Re: SIBC extended broadcast on 9545 kHz. [Ron Howard]
SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, SIBC, Voice of the Nation, 0502-0745 UT, Aug 8 (Sunday); religious music (0502-0515);
sounded like a religious sermon (0516-0533); in English at 0700, with calliope and news/sports/weather, followed by
"FM 96.3 . . . S-I-B-C, Voice of the Nation"; good number of series of commercial announcements (many for mobile
phone service) ; more segments of religious music; at times almost fair. Brief audio attached of ID and religious song.

Re: VOH English language lesson [Amano]
Hi Ron-san
Thank you for listening to my audio and following me.
Today I listened to the VOH weekdays only program, English language lesson.

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH (희망의메아리): On 4890, from 1521’46“ to 1551’27“ UT (29:41), on August 15 (Sunday).
Korean local time, 0021’46“-0051’27 KST, on August 16 (Monday).
The theme music at the starting and ending of this program is Party Will Come Alive sung by Wizardz Of Oz feat. Ruben Martinez.
https://youtu.be/VOnHJJUOuDI
!VOnHJJUOuDI!

When I inspected the relationship between this song and Korean EBS on Google etc., I found the following YouTube video.
https://youtu.be/tFmVpXnGiaA
!tFmVpXnGiaA!

This is exactly this program!
The program name is 왕초보 영어 (Wang cho bo yeong-eo).
Translated into English, it is Super beginner English.

This program is produced by EBSe (EBS English).
https://ko.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/EBS_english

My three minute audio attached.

Ron-san
At the beginning of the program, a man says "English ~".
Do you know what he is saying?
Is he saying "English Supa 'ginner" or "English Super Beginner"?

Re: Voice of Freedom [Amano]
Hi! Ron-san
Thank you for the timely information.
I listened to your received audio. It's clear without jamming.
The VOF turned out that the program schedule has not changed since January of this year!

>0930 - http://bit.ly/3DUQeHM - ?"Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo"? (Korean people, to unity, to the future)
* There is no doubt that the program of this received your audio is "Hanmin jog tong-illo milaelo" (Korean people, to unity, to the future).

I also looked at Ron-san's information and checked VOF at Sep. 3, 1726-2135 UTC.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, VOF, 1726-2135 UT, Sept 3 (Friday), 0226-0635 KST/JST, Sept 4 (Saturday).

1800 - "Bodo gwangjang" (News plaza)

1810 - "Nalssi Jeonmangdae" (Weather Observatory)

1815 - "Ma-eum-e swimpyo" (Resting heart)

At 1820 - After that, North Korean pulse jamming did not stop.
Since the 10-minute drama of 1820 UTC is Saturday in local time (0320, Sept. 4), the weekend program “Salang-i neomchineun ulijib“ (My home full of love) was broadcast.
By the way, "Kkumkkuneun cheongchungeug“ (Dreaming youth drama) will be broadcast on weekdays in local time.
Ron-san is a program received on Sept. 3, 0920 UTC.
http://bit.ly/3yHpmHk

My reception audio for 1 minute after the start of the program after 1820 is https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4756.mp3 .

* 02:00-03:00, 1900 - "Haengboghan Daehanmingug" (Happy Republic of Korea)

At 1940 - "Sigan-yeohaeng, yeogsa tamheomdae" (Time travel, history exploration party), at the beginning, pulse jamming for Shiokaze from North Korea finally stopped at 1940'27" !
After that, I could hear VOF clearly!

My audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4757.mp3 .
* 00:00-02:00, 1940 - "Sigan-yeohaeng, yeogsa tamheomdae" (Time travel, history exploration party)

After that, although there was occasional wood pecker noise, I could hear VOF clearly while enjoying the program.
The theme music for "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng" (Let's go music together) from 2000 UTC has changed from Carpenters' There's A Kind Of Hush to a new and different theme music.

My audio attached.

Re: Australia - Korea - Vanuatu [Ron Howard]

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, random listening from 0849+ UT, on Jan 13. Well above
normal reception; almost semi-readable; pop songs (Bobby McFerrin - "Don't Worry
Be Happy," Mac Davis - "Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me," etc.). Certainly one of their
better receptions. Jan 11, noted 1202:01*.

KOREA NORTH[non]/SOUTH. Frequencies for this week; observed Monday, Jan 11:

VOP: 3480 (best frequency) // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1030 UT. Another
week with no change.

VOH: 3985 (QRM) // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 // 6350 // 9105, at 1034. Another week with all
frequencies changed.

Voice of Freedom, 5920, at 1040, with good reception (no jamming); the super jamming,
white noise, from N. Korea was on 6045 and 6135, but later from 1157+ the jamming was
gone from 6135, so only there for a few days.

7200, National Unity Radio via TAIWAN (broadcasting to N. Korea), at 1143-1144, Jan 11.
Brief language lesson; started and ended with the pop song "ABC" by the Jackson 5; "Never
mind. I am sorry"; good reception.

VANUATU. 3945, R. Vanuatu, randomly from 0745 till trx off at 1114 UT, on Jan 13. Am very grateful
to Manuel Méndez (via WOR iog) for the timely alert! At tune in on 3945, was not too bad, but third
harmonic 11835 was unusable; after 0800, the 11835 reception had greatly improved; 0830, "Radio
Vanuatu, half past seven"; programming in Bislama; later on 3945 (11835 unheard), at 1000, the
usual intro to the news/sports/weather, with indigenous music of horns and drums; news ended at
1019; from 1032 to 1101, ending the day with the usual sermon and religious songs; 1101, closing
announcement and National Anthem; 1102-1114, open carrier (no audio); dead air till trx off.

Re: SOUTH KOREA : Voice of Freedom (2) [Ron Howard]
Thank you so very much Amano-san for the most helpful VOF information!
On April 11, at 1100 UTC, I was also listening to 6045.0 kHz. and heard
the clear SA of "Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo" ("Korean people, to unity, to
the future"・. This frequency has no drifting as did 5917.4v, so must be a
different VOF transmitter.

Re: SOUTH KOREA : Voice of Freedom (2) [Amano]
Hello! Ron-san.

Most of the recent VOF programs start with the following greetings.
It is part of 00:14-00:19 of Ron-san's audio.

*** Korean reading, Starting greetings.
"Bughan dongpo, geuligo inmingun yeoleobun. Annyeonghasibnikka?"

*** In English, Starting greetings.
"North Korean compatriots, and the People's Army. How are you?"

The following Youtube is Japanese TV news.
You can see that "Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo" is being broadcast from the loudspeaker.
It is the part of 01:01-01:07 on Youtube below.

Kang Susie is a Korean idol singer in the 1990s.
It was also active in Japan.
She sings a very good ballad.

I've heard a commercial for 'KBS kong' during the Pops Freedom.
It was not broadcast during the program on Oct 23 (KST / JST).
This commercial was being broadcast during the program when Kang Susie was in charge of broadcasting for one hour every day.
Even now, it is broadcast for 1 hour only on Saturdays and Sundays (KST/JST), so it may be broadcast at that time.
