KOREA SOUTH. 6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, from 1000 to 1100,
Nov 28. Usual hour long program ("Pop's Freedom"); mostly in Korean,
but with English IDs and segment with English language lesson; hosted
by Kwak Young Il, a broadcaster who holds a PhD in English; playing
pop songs (Todd Rundgren "Hello Its Me," Chubby Checker "The Twist,"
etc.); 1011 "Pop's Freedom Everyday English"; "Wow, they called off
the wedding after a fight"; 1018-1045 playing hit songs "Open Arms"
and different versions of it and adding commentary about the song;
the ever present white noise jamming from N. Korea was present, but
KBS was coming through fairly well; one of KBS's more enjoyable

Re: B15 : Broadcasting to North Korea - XYZ Nov 29, 2015 11:12 UTC No.472

Station announcement in English !!
In my location, it is one of the broadcast can not hear because of the jamming
from North Korea. When the radio waves from the neighboring countries has been
"SKIP" phenomenon, or will be receiving chance when something jamming has stopped due.
I did not know that there is a English program. TNX!

It may test transmission because there are examples of 4900kHz.
If it came out Jamming from North Korea here, might fairly influence
comes out in Japan (60mb).

Re: Korea: new 4885 kHz., Echo of Hope - VOH - XYZ Dec 21, 2015 16:39 UTC No.585
Echo of Hope - VOH

The station name of the broadcast will have been translated into English
as "Echo of Hope", from the fact they are announced as "VOH" the call sign,
they wanted to ask is called the "Voice of Hope" might.

Re: Korea: new 4885 kHz., Echo of Hope - VOH - Ron Howard Dec 21, 2015 16:58 UTC No.587
Thanks to Bernd Friedewald (DK9FI) for the following email: 

"Many thanks for the tip. Great!

Just put on PERSEUS SDR in Japan and they are still there
at 1642 UTC. Looks for test...

I remember when I was at the HFCC conference at Dallas
we visited Continental. Here we saw a 100kw (or more)
transmitter(s) available for delivery to South Korea.
Maybe this is one of them because KBS is still using the
very old transmitters."

Appreciate his feedback.

Good evening! XYZ_san. I'm staying in Hokkaido, Japan right now.
I heared your Youtube audio.

Your Youtube audio(from 2m23s to 2m29s) is broadcast middle announcement.
This is not the end announcement.
Next program is "Today's News" in this station.
This station has been stopped in the middle of the theme music.

The Youtube audio of the above is cho_san's from Korea.
This Youtube audio has been recorded in Dec. 21 1300UTC before.
***Postscript start:correction
Oh! my goodnees! I made a mistake. I'm sorry.
cho_san's Youtube audio has been recorded in Dec. 21 1500UTC before.
This was not the audio at the time of the broadcast start.
***Postscript end

1300UTC is the transmission start time of 4885kHz.
But this is not the start announcement.
I think 4885kHz begins from the middle of the just before 1300UTC.

Announcement contains the following.
English:"This time of the broadcast is over. Continue to start the next regular broadcasting."
Korean:"isang-euloi sigan bangsong-eul machigo, god-ieo dasi jeong-gyu bangsong-eul bonae deuligessseubnida."
*** XYZ's audio(from 2m23s to 2m29s) and cho's audio(from 1m04s to 1m10s) are the same announcement.

Thank you so much for following me on ASIA DX BBS in Japanese! baido_san from Korea.
