CHINA[non-log]. 6200, Voice of Jinling. Thanks very much to an alert from Ralph Perry, back on Oct 14, 
that VOJL was off the air; today (Oct 20) also noted them clearly silent at 1303 UT; in the past VOJL
started about 1230, with their well known double sign on.

Hi Amano,

Thank you for the beautiful Mt. Fiji picture. I always enjoy seeing photos of it!

Overall good conditions today (Oct 31).

VOJL (6200) heard later than usual today. Didn't log the time, but must have been about 1250 UT or so.
Now starting well past their former sign on time!

Today, new Shiokaze frequencies: 7250 // 7335, for 13-14 UT.

No Voice of Freedom heard; ex 5920 and not on 6045. Where?

Myanmar (5915) in real trouble now; CRI noted 1000+, covering MR. Whereas 9730 had fairly good
reception 1020+. My audio with one minute of music and one with announcers attached.

Myanmar (5985) started after 1100, but was blocked by strong NHK on frequency (1100+).

Echo of Hope - VOH, 3985 // 4880 // 5995 // 6245 // 6350 // 9095, at 1142 with the weekend language
lesson of reading a "Harry Potter" story. Weekdays (1123-1152) is no longer a language lesson, but instead
non-stop pop songs in English. Will change frequencies tomorrow.

"Yunnan Radio International" (6035), decent today; 1130, multi-language SAs; 1230, no SA.

AIR Jeypore (5040) with AIR IS at 1129, extremely weak underneath R. Vanuatu open carrier (RV NA audio
ended at 1102, but xmtr still on hours after that).

Since Sept 27, the 49m band has been free of the three N. Korea super white noise jamming frequencies: against Echo of
Hope - VOH (weekly alternating between 5990-5995-6000); KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1 (6015); and on 6045. Has been great to
now hear VOH, KBS and VOF (now on 6045 [ex 5920]) without the usually strong white noise jamming.

Nov 3 - KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on 6015, at 0744, with the station's singing "K-B-S" jingle; as usual now clear of white
noise jamming.

Nov 3 - Echo of Hope - VOH new frequencies for this week; 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100, at 0727. Pleased
to find they have returned to their regular weekday language lesson, instead of the recent non-stop music played during
this time period; start of the audio feed from a TV program called "Wang cho bo yeong-eo" (Beginner's English); intro &
exit theme song is the "Party Will Come Alive" by Wizardz Of Oz (with Ruben Martinez); the usual intro with announcer
saying "English trainer" and gives his name ("Mayu"), then the woman announcer says her name ("Mini"), then they both
say in English, "Good morning everybody"; "Is this your first visit?", "No, I have been here before," "What are your
symptoms?", "I have a fever and I have a chill as well," etc. This program will be repeated again today at 1127 and
1527 UT.

Nov 3 - Voice of Freedom now on 6045 (ex: 5920), at 0635 UT, first noted the VOF open carrier; audio started at 0753 UT,
with details corresponding to those reported by Amano (Japan) on Nov 1 (VOF's first day on 6045) - starting music at 0753,
gong rung three times, VOF SA, Republic of Korea national anthem, VOF FM frequency announcement, VOF station's singing
jingle, 0500 PM KST announcement, time pips and at 0800, the start of the program "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng"
(Let's go music together). My unedited ten minute audio is at http://bit.ly/3mGCWb8 . Thanks very much to Amano for his
ongoing assistance with these Korean stations!

Unfortunately VOF's ex 5920 continued today to be jammed by NK with a pulsating noise jamming (not the white noise
jamming). Suspect it is only a matter of time before it moves up to 6045 and will probably continue to be on from
about 0700 to ending sometime after 1100 (cut off time varies a lot!).

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, seems to have made their usual seasonal change of schedule; still on the air past 
1231+ UT (formerly cut off about 1000*). For a while now, I have had no signal on 5045, from Australia.

CHINA. 6200, Voice of Jinling, *1224* *1225+ UT, Nov 4. The usual double sign on; before VOJL, had fair reception
of Xizang PBS (Tibet - Lhasa), but VOJL mostly blocking Tibet reception after 1224. VOJL sign on time varies a lot!

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, on Nov 4, with good reception (no N. Korea jamming):

1130-1200 UT: Program "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowledge Is Power).

1200: A single tone, "Jayuuisolibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob) sileul allyeodeulibnida" (Voice of Freedom has
announced 9 pm); station's singing jingle; program "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza).

1215: Program "Dodbogilo boneun sesang" (The World Through A Magnifying Glass).

Re: VOH with North Korean super jamming on 4885 kHz. Amano - Nov 07 (Sun), 2021 11:20 UTC No.4981
I can't hear the VOH because the North Korean super jamming is on 4885 kHz that hasn't been jammed for many years.

1100 UT, Nov 7. I checked the status of North Korean super jamming.
3910(VOP), 3930(VOP), 3980(VOH), 4885(VOH),
6250(VOH), 6348(VOH), 6520(VOP), 6600(VOP).

North Korean super jamming cannot be confirmed at the following frequencies.
5990 / VOH (No Jamming).
6015 / KBS (A pulsating noise jamming from NK).
6045 / VOF (Until 1100 UT, a pulsating noise jamming from NK, after that no jamming).
9100 / VOH (No Jamming).

Did you change the super jamming configuration?

Re: VOH with North Korean super jamming on 4885 kHz. Ron Howard - Nov 08 (Mon), 2021 11:47 UTC No.4982
Thanks to a timely tip from Amano (Japan), I found at 1010 UT, on Nov 8, that N. Korea's super white noise jamming 
is now on 4885, totally blocking Brazil. Probably only a temporary situation, as Echo of Hope - VOH is on 4890 for
this week and the jamming should eventually move up to that frequency. Time will tell as to what develops here.

It was on back on Sept 27, that I noted N. Korea had stopped broadcasting their super white noise jamming in the 49m
band (weekly alternating from 5990-5995-6000, as well as 6015 and also 6045). Had to wonder what was happening? Why the
sudden change and what were they going to do in the future? Now we know they plan to jam Echo of Hope - VOH, as they
alternate weekly between 4880-4885-4890. During the years that I have monitored VOH, had never heard 4880-4885-4890
jammed before by NK; yes, blocked at times by OTH radar QRM, but not jammed.

Nov 8 (Monday), Echo of Hope - VOH frequencies for this week: 3985 (CNR2 QRM) // 4890 (clear of the 4885 jamming,
but probably only a matter of time before the jamming moves up to 4890) // 5995 // 6255 // 6350 // 9105, at 0946 UT,
with pop song (Chicago - "Hard To Say I'm Sorry").

VOP, at 0950 UT on 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600; while 3480 remains silent.

Voice of Freedom, at 0956, on 6045; almost fair with moderate NK pulsating jamming (not super white noise jamming).

KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, at 0955, on 6015; fair with weak NK pulsating jamming (not super white noise jamming) underneath.

Amano - Thank you very much! Appreciate your alert!!

Nov 9 (Tuesday) - As expected, the super jamming (ex: 4885) from N. Korea has followed with Echo of Hope - VOH 
up to 4890 today. Noted VOH at 1138 UT, with fairly strong jamming QRM; VOH with the usual weekday English
language lesson; audio feed from a TV program.

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH with anomaly. From 1105+ UT, rather strange to find their two frequencies
(5995 & 9105) off the air; unusual because these are the only two VOH frequencies that are not being jammed by
N. Korea; while 3985 // 4890 // 6255 // 6350 were all jammed today.

Voice of Freedom (6045) - Heard the end of the pulsating noise jamming (not white noise jamming) from N. Korea
at 1113* UT; leaving VOF with fair-good reception after that.

SOLOMON ISLANDS[non-log]. 5020, SIBC. Off the air during the following checks: 0835, 0916, 1013, 1119 and

with noise jamming; usual OM & YL announcers taking alternate phone calls; occasional HOA music/singing; respectable
signal strength via long path and very nice grey line reception (local sunrise here at 1444 UT and Addis Ababa sunset

This and the Solomon Islands (5020) are beginning to be of concern as to what is happening?

KOREA SOUTH. Monday (Nov 15) observations:

Echo of Hope - VOH, this week again with two frequencies silent (alternate 5990-5995-6000 & 9095-9100-9105); while
3990 // 4885 (killing Brazil reception) // 6250 // 6355 were all on the air and not jammed on their new alternate
frequencies today at 0920 UT, but the next day (Nov 16) all were jammed by N. Korea; so Brazil (4885), was doubly
killed!

Voice of the People, this week the same three frequencies were silent today - 3930, 3480 & 4450; while 3910 // 6520
// 6600 all active today, at 0925 UT. Interesting to note Nov 16, that 3930 & 4450, were briefly heard again for a
short time about 1043, but didn't stay on for long.

Voice of Freedom (6045). Am happy to report that the N. Korean pulsating jamming (formerly 0700-1100 UT) is now
totally silent, leaving very good reception here; Nov 14, at 0900 UT - time tone; station jingle "jinsil-e soli,
huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of truth, Voice of hope, Voice of Freedom Broadcast), "Jayu-e
solibangsong-eseo ohu 6 (yeoseos) sileul allyeodeulibnida" ("Voice of Freedom announces 6pm"), "Bodo gwangjang"

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1239-1253 UT, Nov 17 (Wednesday). Is always a pleasure to hear the comical
misadventures of "Tom"; this identical show has been heard by me four different times since 2017; "Say It
In English" program with dialogue between "Mr. Harris" and "Tom," who wants Tom to take the morning 7:00
train to Manchester; "The meeting is very important. Don't miss the train"; Tom works for a company that
"makes some of the finest clocks and watches in the world," but he is "never on time for anything"; he
missed the train and then rushes to take a taxi to the airport to catch the 8:00 plane to Manchester;
nicely readable today.

Recently Echo of Hope - VOH had not been heard on their regular alternating weekly frequencies of 9095-9100-9105.
But today (Nov 19) for the first time I was instead hearing the programming of the Voice of the People on 9100 kHz.
(ex: 3480), at 1002 UT, with a good signal (no N. Korea jamming).  VOP: 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600 // 9100
kHz. So they are back to their full six frequencies.

Gohyang-e on pyeonji (A letter from home) - 1019 UT - My audio is at http://bit.ly/3FBzaql .

Whereas, Echo of Hope - VOH, was heard on 3990 // 4885 // 6000 (back on the air today) // 6250 // 6355 kHz., at
1030 UT. Is there a sixth frequency hiding someplace?

Hi Amano,

Was very interested to read your logs and to hear your audio clip. In the past I have also heard the same identical
"Say It In English" program.

"5985, Myanmar Radio, 1253-1305, Sept 10, 2021. Friday edition of "Say It In English"; first heard this identical
show back on Feb 19, 2018; dialogue at a "sales conference," "May I introduce myself?", "Let me introduce myself,"
"How do you do?", "Nice to meet you," "May I introduce Tom Carter?", "Pleased to meet you," "Please call me Tom,"
"All right Tom, we will," etc.; a different show than last Wednesday (Sept 8); these are the only two days I know
they are on the air. (Ron - Calif.)"

Regarding the singing station jingle - Yes, it is very distinctive and is often played. They give three "kilohertz"
frequencies. Also the jingle has an English ID ("..?.. town Radio"). Dave Valko thought it sounded like "Mothtown
Radio," while I tend to think it perhaps is "Small town Radio," but am not positive! On your audio recording, "..?..
town Radio," is at 0:48.
On my audio, "..?.. town Radio" is at 0:42 - https://app.box.com/s/1h4ts48rthxqqzrvbiliwxgphlm1gc6s .

There are language lesson programs and music programs, so listening to Myanmar radio on 5985 kHz around 1300 UT is a lot of fun.
Recently, part of the 49mb North Korean super jamming has disappeared and it is very easy to hear.

AUSTRALIA. 5035-USB, Unique Radio, on Nov 26; listening from 1025 UT; a very rare day that I
actually had some faint audio with announcer and music, which did not sound like pop music/
songs, but not quite strong enough to describe it in detail; at 1101 heard time pips; still on the air
at 1122, but rechecked at 1140 and found the station was clearly off the air. As Glenn also noted,
this frequency was silent yesterday.

Was excited to be able to catch any audio and certainly this was an outstanding day for Australian
reception, as Radio 4KZ (5055 kHz.) was doing fairly well till they cut off about 1000 UT (unlike
yesterday's extended broadcasting past 1205+). Today around 0933, heard the Beatles - "All You
Need Is Love," Wham - "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go," etc. It is not often I can hear 4KZ well
enough to easily ID the songs.

Am very grateful to Tim Gaynor for checking on my Unique Radio details of reception and responded
with E-QSL ( http://bit.ly/3DWZDOz ) and

"I double checked DJ Key's file of On this day 80's and right on the end he does have time pips and
as the show was a minute over would tally. I'm not sure why? So conditions may be improving.

You would be doing well if you could hear us on 5035 kHz USB.

Also I noticed DJ Key (British announcer/DJ) plays an old fashioned sounding song , ' Together we'll
be ok......' and then an instrumental and website details with an American voice. Sounds like it was us
after all Ron."

weekday EBS (Educational Broadcasting System) produced English news and Korean. N. Korea jamming
is getting smarter, as at 0810, the jamming was on ex 4880, but by 0851, jamming had already moved
up to block VOH on 4885. They have learned that Monday is when VOH changes frequencies!

Voice of the People, this week unable to confirm; only some frequencies seemed to have a carrier,
but no audio detected. Will have to wait and see what happens during the week. Nov 30, only able
to make out audio on 6520 at 1115 UT, while other frequencies seemed to just have a carrier; 3480
continues to be off the air.

Voice of Freedom (6045). Continues to be free of the former super jamming from N. Korea; at 0900 UT
with the usual format (single time tone; station jingle "jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli
bangsong!" [Voice of truth, Voice of hope, Voice of Freedom Broadcast], "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo
ohu 6 [yeoseos] sileul allyeodeulibnida" ["Voice of Freedom announces 6pm"], "Bodo gwangjang" [News Plaza]).

Nov 30 - KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on 6015, continues to be free of the former white noise jamming from NK;

BHUTAN[non-log]. 6035, BBS. In past years I was easily able to pull this in at my local sunset during the winter 
DX season, but this Dec. when checking 0050-0115 UT, nothing at all was heard on 6035. Seems they are really off
the air now!

KOREA SOUTH:

Regarding Glenn Hauser's log - "KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 6000, Dec 24 at 0741, checking RHC frequenciesbut this one
normally off by a sesquihour earlier, yet something weak is here and also with jamming noise. Mustbe Echo of Hope,
instead of alternate 5995. No report from Ron this week about its current jumparounds, but Dec 24 Aoki has it on
6000 from 0500 but no indication of jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)"

Glenn - You were correct! From Dec 20 (Mon.) to 26 (Sun.), Echo of Hope - VOH frequencies were - 3990 // 4885 // 
6000 // 6250 // 6355 // 9100 kHz.

VOH frequencies heard on Dec 27 (Mon.) -  3985 // 4880 // 5995 // 6245 // 6350 // 9095 kHz., all were fair-good with 
no N. Korea jamming yet; at 1140 UT, with EBS TV audio feed for the English language lesson "Wang cho bo yeong-eo," 
which is always aired only on weekdays; later at 1239, with the EBS news headlines and news stories in English and 
Korean. These frequencies should be good through Jan 2 (Sun.) 

Voice of the People frequencies on Dec 27 (Mon.) - 3910 // 3930 // 3480 (heard daily now after the reactivation on 
Dec 6) // 4450 // 6520 // 6600 kHz., at 1145 UT.

Voice of Freedom, on 5920, at 1200 UT, on Dec 25; single tone; "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob) sileul allyeodeulibnida." (In English - Voice of Freedom has announced 9pm); singing station jingle - "jinsil-e soli, 
huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of Truth, Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom broadcast); "Bodo gwangjang"
(News Plaza); fair-good reception with no N. Korea jamming. If they are smart, they will stay on this frequency, as their alternate frequency of 6045 is again being heard with N. Korea super jamming.

KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on 6015, continues to be free of the usual strong white noise jamming from NK, but instead
has light jamming heard underneath, at 1150 UT.

CDNK North Korean Democratization Committee, on 6085, with *1400, on Dec 23. Heard just after the first day closing
of Shiokaze at 1400*, on their alternate frequency of 6085 (// 7250); CDNK with good reception, but by Dec 25, N.
Korean jamming had found Shiokaze and is now causing QRM for CDNK 1400+.
 
KOREA NORTH - On Dec 27, at 1205 UT: 

Pyongyang BS, 3320 // 6160, both fair.

KCBS Pyongyang, 3250 // 3959, both fair.

Echo of Unification, 3945 // 5905, both fair.

Also N. Korea super jamming returned to 6045 kHz. on Dec 25 and still here Dec 27. We can only hope Voice of Freedom
does not again use this alternate frequency while the super jamming is active.

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, 1026 UT, on Dec 19, heard an SA that was new to me - "Sarawak FM, Be Happy"

Additional online info about Jang Jin-Sung and his poems is at http://bit.ly/3HlbBTh :

"The poet, Jang Jin-Sung, used to be a citizen and well renowned poet of North Korea. Kim Jong-Il even read and
appreciated his work. In 2004, he left for South Korea and published several memoirs on living conditions in the
North. This poem, published in a collection, shows the poor quality of life of the working class. Jang Jin-Sung
criticized the North Korean regime through his poetry as he remembered the great famine of millions of citizens
while the wealthy did not nothing but watch."

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1246-1300 UT. The Wednesday edition of "Say It In English" language lesson; a repeat
of the Aug 11 (Wed.) program that I originally heard; dialog about "Tom's Aunt Jennifer" having a water leak in her
flat and she called "George," the plumber, but he was too busy to fix it, so "Tom" tried and as usual made a mess
of it; semi-readable

KOREA SOUTH. Observations on Jan 5 (Wednesday):

Voice of Freedom, on 5920 (next day noted they moved up to 6045 - see log below)

1157 UT - Closing SA for "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowledge is power).

1200 - Single tone; "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob) sileul allyeodeulibnida." (In English - Voice of Freedom
has announced 9pm); singing station jingle - "jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of Truth,

1340 - With the 20 minutes program "Sigan-yeohaeng, yeogsa tamheomdae" (Time travel, history exploration party),
with the theme music by South Korean electronic group Idiotape - "Melodie" ("6 synthesizers and 1 drummer formed
an electronic band Idiotape to play synth playing rock music" -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emoadwiK4TM&feature=youtu.be ). My audio is at http://bit.ly/3eTiejC .

Observations on Jan 6 (Thursday):

Echo of Hope - VOH, 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100, early reception at 0724 UT; start of the weekday
audio feed from a TV program called "Wang cho bo yeong-eo" (translated into English - Beginner's English); intro &
exit theme song is the "Party Will Come Alive" by Wizardz Of Oz (with Ruben Martinez); the usual intro with announcer
saying "English trainer" and gives his name ("Mayu"), then the woman announcer says her name ("Mini"), then they both
say in English, "Good morning everybody." "I am starving. I am hungry. Do you want to go to a convenience store?";
as it was so early, reception was rather weak.

Voice of Freedom, noted starting at *0753 UT [*1653 JST]; first day back on alternate frequency of 6045 (ex 5920),
heard along with N. Korea super jamming currently operating here. A very poor frequency assignment!

Thanks again to Amano (Japan) for his wonderful ongoing guidance with the VOF details and program names!

Hi! Ron-san
Thank you for checking the VOF program and back on 6045 kHz (ex 5920).
That was very helpful for me.
Once the VOF program schedule is known to some extent, I will be posted on the VOF thread.
Please wait for a little while.

Here's what I'm currently aware of in the VOF schedule:
1, There is no new program.
2, There is no change in the broadcast time of "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza).
* The time announcement has not changed.
3, The only difference between the programs on weekdays and weekends is the 10-minute drama of the same weekday “Kkumkkuneun cheongchungeug“ (Dreaming youth drama) and weekend “Salang-i neomchineun ulijib“ (My home full of love) as last year.
4, There is a time zone in which one program spreads across 00 minutes.
5, “Ulisoli hanmadang“ (Our sound festival) will be a 15-minute program.
* Last year was a 10-minute program.
6, "Hanla-eseo Baegdukkaji" (From Halla to Baekdu) will be a 25-minute program.
* Last year was a 30-minute program.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045 (ex 5920), Voice of Freedom. 0350-0403* UT, Jan 8 (Saturday).
The influence of North Korean super jamming is terrible!
I was able to confirm the opening of “Salang-i neomchineun ulijib“ (My home full of love).

KOREA SOUTH. Observations on Jan 10:

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 // 6350 // 9105, at 1210 UT; these changes should be
good through Jan 16 (Sunday).

Voice of the People - no change from last week; 3910 // 3930 // 3480 (continues to be the best reception!)
// 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1215 UT.

Voice of Freedom, 6045, at 1220 UT; heard along with N. Korea super jamming on frequency, while ex 5920 is
a clear frequency with no jamming. So they moved to a frequency that was already being jammed, from a
frequency that was not jammed. Seems their broadcasts are not actually monitored there in S. Korea, as
the frequency assignments make little sense.

CHINA. 4978-USB, VC01, Chinese military numbers station, 1352 UT, Jan 19.

5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1507-1509 UT, Jan 19; the usual brief spot in English; today about food.

CUBA. 5040, RHC, cut off in mid-sentence at 0720* UT on Jan 19; open carrier (no audio) heard after that;
OC still on at 1346. Vanuatu?

ETHIOPIA. 7110, Radio Ethiopia (Home Service), 1421-1500* UT, Jan 19; HOA music & chanting/singing;
1459, IDs and gong rang three times; fair. My local sunrise was at 1517 UT.

INDONESIA. 3325, VOI, via Palangkaraya; a rare day with actual audio; not a great signal but not too bad;
on Jan 19, at 1311 UT, after the news in English, played the usual patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri” (For You
Our Country); played it again at 1412, after the news in Bahasa Indonesia; played again after the news in
Chinese at 1514 (my audio is at http://bit.ly/3AhjjM3 ).

KOREA SOUTH. Observations on Jan 17 (Monday):

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3990 // 4885 // 6000 // 6250 // 6355 // 9100, at 1114 UT; these changes should be good
through Jan 23 (Sunday). Noted VOH (6355) before 1046, with very good reception; covered at *1046, start
of the N. Korea jamming.

Voice of the People - no change from last week; 3910 // 3930 // 3480 (continues to be the best reception!)
// 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 0950 UT.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio; slightly less than semi-readable; 1530 UT, Jan 19. Into English segment;
news & sports; "This is Myanmar Radio. Here is the weather news," plus "outlook for the next two days";
seemed to be several lists of gov't agendas/slogans; PSA about travel restrictions for COVID-19, given by
native speaker of English ("presented by UNESCO and your local radio station"); PSA in Burmese; pop
song (One Direction - "Drag Me Down," etc.); *1558, mostly blocked by the start of CRI; after 1600,
Myanmar was not in English, but had Buddhists chanting.

5985, with anomaly or change of schedule? Jan 16, tuned in at 1007 UT, to hear Myanmar on very early;
for over a year, had heard their normal *1130; today also noted Myanmar was not on the air as usual on
9730. On Jan 17, heard MR (5985) at 0940 UT, again with no 9730. So for two consecutive days heard
well before 1130 and with no 9730 (without Myanmar on 9730, I am hearing SOH [// 6214.95]). Needs
more monitoring. BTW - 5985 is now blocked at *1055, with strong NHK IS and 1100 in Russian.

CHINA. A reminder that Feb 1 (Tuesday) is Chinese New Year (year of the Tiger). Every year I monitor all the
Chinese SW stations to hear if any of them have coverage of the Chinese New Year's Eve (Spring Festival) Gala,
broadcast with the CCTV audio feed. Some stations carry full (non-stop) coverage, while others have only partial
(occasional) coverage. The festivities start on Jan 31 (Monday) at 1200 UT and continue for about four and a half
hours. Normally Voice of Strait (both 4900 & 4940) will have coverage; also check for either CNR1 or CNR2 (China
Business Radio) to have live coverage, as well as checking some of the regional Chinese stations; in past years
have noted Qinghai ("Qinghai News Comprehensive Broadcasting") on 6145 kHz. with coverage. Is a good opportunity
to find many Chinese stations running parallel programming. The gala consists of comedy performances, songs, dance,
acrobatics, magic, Chinese opera and even foreign celebrities.
Preview 2022 gala - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KReWPxKrm0 .

5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1510-1513 UT, Jan 26; interesting brief spot in English; various ways of cooking Wenchang
chicken (stir fry with coconut milk, etc.) and ways to prepare Hainanese chicken rice; Wenchang is a county level
city on Hainan Island, off the southern coast of China; semi-readable.

ETHIOPIA. 7110, Radio Ethiopia (Home Service), 1443-1458* UT, Jan 26; HOA music & chanting/singing; cut off today
without SA, IS nor gong; fair. My local sunrise was at 1513 UT.

INDONESIA. 3325, VOI, via Palangkaraya, *1054, Jan 26. Usual patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri” (For You Our Country)
played 1411-1413 UT, after the news in Bahasa Indonesia; poor reception, but with some audio.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5930, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata (Japan), 1346 UT (scheduled 13-14), on Jan 26; their first
day back to this alternate frequency; Wednesday in English; fair-good with no jamming (yet!), while // 7335 (heavy
CNR2 QRM); "Today's News on North Korea Issues"; at 1354 the segment "Message from the Japanese government,"
mentioning both “Nippon no Kaze” and "Furusato no Kaze."

KOREA SOUTH. only 3985 // 5995 // 6350, Echo of Hope - VOH, at 0956 UT, Jan 25. pop song (Donna Summer - "Hot Stuff");
at *1000 start of additional frequencies 4880 // 6245 // 9095; these six frequencies should be good through Jan 30.

only 3910 // 3480 // 6520, Voice of the People, at 0902 UT, on Jan 25; at 1002, heard additional 3930 // 4450 // 6600.
These six frequencies with no change from last week.

6045, Voice of Freedom, *0753 UT, Jan 25. Heard along with N. Korea super jamming.

Re: Radio Vanuatu with audio! Ron Howard - Feb 02 (Wed), 2022 13:24 UTC No.5027
Feb 2 - Thanks to Manuel's timely tip (WORiog), I had to return to the beach to catch some actual audio, after many 
months of listening to just an open carrier with no audio at all on 5040 kHz. Radio Vanuatu, as one of my favorite SW
stations, pulled me back to the beach, even as I am still rather stiff from my fall last week.

1004-1019 UT: News (Is normal for RV to not start the news at the ToH).

1019-1028: Island music/songs.

1028-1033: Start of the usual half hour religious program, starting with non-stop religious songs.

1033-1046: RV SA; into preaching (unreadable).

1046-1103: More religious songs

1103-1104: ending audio with the National Anthem.

1104+: open carrier/no audio at all (1145+).

BTW - Checking for any Radio Symban signal on 2368.43 kHz., but from 0940+ UT, no trace at all of any signal.
Must be running unusually low power. In light of my past Symban receptions, I thought I might catch some trace
of a carrier. Here is my 2014 QSL for a Symban test transmission (50w) - https://app.box.com/s/hz9qo091vsmpzmcva02z .
Also here is a copy of their nice 2011 Christmas card - https://app.box.com/s/b24hpnyoxrm3icplls8u .
Is the station still being operated by Angelo Matsoukas, along with Tom Tsamouras?

Surprise to find no Voice of Indonesia (3325) signal from 1120+ UT. Currently off the air?

Radio Symban - Checking 2368.43 kHz. for traces of a carrier from 0935+ UT (Feb 3), but nothing at all heard.

CHINA. 6035, Yunnan Radio International, on Feb 3, at 1156 UT. Heard with nice classical (western) orchestra music
(unusual to hear this type of music via a Chinese station, but must be living up to their "International" name);
clear multi-language SAs (English: "Yunnan Radio International"); one of their better days.

PERU. 4810, presumed R. Logos, 1113-1128 UT, Feb 3. Best ever reception here, even with the normal heavy CODAR QRM;
announcer (1113-1120) and OA music/songs (1120-1128). My audio (two minutes of announcer and one of music) is posted
at http://bit.ly/3gqiI1e .

VANUATU. 5040, R. Vanuatu, Feb 3. Very respectable signal; much better than yesterday; here are some highlights:

1003-1020 UT: News/sports in Bislama (As Zacharias Liangas has also noted in WORiog, a helpful sprinkling of English
words here); many sound bites; items about New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Australian investments, "sports . .
football club," etc.

1033: RV SA and local time check ("half past nine"); into the usual half hour religious program; preaching and prayer
in Bislama ("tonight . . . the Bible says . . .," etc.)

1041+: Religious songs; many in English ("Just Reach Out Your Hand," etc.).

1103-1104: ending audio with the National Anthem. My audio is at http://bit.ly/3AWvY7n .

1104+: open carrier/dead air with no audio at all (1150+).

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, cut off at 0954:25* UT, on Feb 3; recently consistent with five seconds earlier
cut off time every day. Feb 4 - Significant anomaly - Not heard at their usual time (checked 0941 UT), but
later on the air at a time normal off (checked 1018+ and still on at last check at 1255 UT); usual format
(The Rascals - "Groovin on a Sunday Afternoon" and many other recognizable pop oldies).

CHINA. CNR1 // CNR2, all frequencies // for the 1200 UT, on Feb 4. Start of the live audio feed from CCTV
coverage of the opening Olympic ceremony; some announcements in French and English; at 1243, with the Parade
of Nations (Albania, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Latvia, Great Britain, Romania, etc.); checked many other Chinese
regional stations, but none found with any coverage. Brief audio attached.

INDONESIA. 4749.95, VOI, via Cimanggis/Jakarta, 1142 UT, Feb 4. Very unusual to be able to hear VOI here;
clearly two stations in Chinese; other one was CNR1; slight het as VOI is off frequency from CNR1; currently
VOI is off the air on 3325 (Palangkaraya). My reception today was only possible during pre-Bangladesh Betar.

VANUATU. 5040, R. Vanuatu, quick check at 1100 UT, Feb 4. Religious song; 1101-1102, National Anthem; 1102+

Hainan Island's famous foods (Wenchang chicken, Jiaji duck, etc.).

CUBA[and non-VANUATU]. 5040, RHC, on the air very late Feb 9. Still on the air at 1020 UT; but at 1043,
found the frequency finally clear and again today with no Radio Vanuatu signal (nor on any other frequency).

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. 7110-LSB, the LA ham net still being heard almost daily after 1100+ UT, but no
longer playing the distinctive LA music (he must have been told to stop doing it!); now just the hams chatting.

INDONESIA. 3325, VOI, via Palangkaraya, 0951 UT, Feb 9. Recently had been off the air; today extremely
rare reception to hear their carrier this early (normally about *1100); by 1014, faint patriotic song “Bagimu
Negeri” (For You Our Country); poor reception, but with some audio.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5930, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata (Japan), 1324 UT (scheduled 13-14), on
Feb 9. Wednesday in English; fair-good and still no jamming (N. Korea must still be celebrating the Lunar
New Year?), while // 7335 (heavy CNR2 QRM); segment "Message from the Japanese government."

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, 1157 UT, Feb 8. Closing SA for the "Aneun geos-i him-ida"
(Knowledge is power) program; 1200, the usual single tone; then "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob)
sileul allyeodeulibnida." (In English - Voice of Freedom has announced 9pm); nice singing station jingle -
"jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of Truth, Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom
broadcast); then the "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza) segment; fair, even with the super noise jamming
from N. Korea; at least the daily different pip jamming had ended sometime after 1100.

Echo of Hope - VOH, 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100, at 1530 UT, Feb 5 (Saturday). The weekend
only reading of a "Harry Potter" story in English, with a lengthy explanation in Korean; fair. Then on Monday
(Feb 7), there was no change of frequencies (0827 UT) for this week, so the same frequencies should be good
through Feb 13 (Sunday).

Voice of the People - Remains the same when heard Feb 7 (Monday) on 3910 // 3930 // 3480 // 4450 // 6520 //
6600, at 1005 UT; again with no changes.

KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, 6015, Feb 8, at 1208 UT. The usual audio feed from the TV KBS news at 9
(1200 UT = 9:00 PM KST); SA after each news item as "K-B-S News"; almost fair, even with light N. Korea
jamming underneath.

PERU. 4810, presumed R. Logos, Feb 9. Is it just me, or has this station been steadily improving recently?
Very pleasant OA music/songs during a segment that seems to always start every day at 1120+ UT. Is rare
for me to get involved with LA receptions, but this has been nice!

TURKEY/MYANMAR. 5985, VOT, 1456 UT, Feb 5. VOT IS; killing Myanmar reception; 1500, unable to make
out the start of the VOT language.

U S A. 7505, WRNO, 1403*, Feb 5. Cut off just after starting "The Haven," program in English.

UNID. 6300-USB, tuned in 0813 to 0820 UT, Feb 7. Islamic chanting/reciting from Qur'an(?) with no music;
followed by chatting in what seemed like maybe Arabic. Can I assume this is just hams? My audio with a few
minutes of Qur'an, then chatting, at https://bit.ly/3Jc4wFy .

Am I Supposed To Live Without You," Cliff Richard - "We Don't Talk Anymore," Bette Midler - "Wind Beneath
My Wings," Whitney Houston - "Saving All My Love For You," etc.). Is this their usual seasonal schedule change?

INDONESIA. 3325, VOI, via Palangkaraya, 1007 UT, Feb 11. Thanks very much to Ivo Ivanov, who recently first
observed the new schedule; now starting about an hour earlier than in the past; formerly, for a long time,
had started about 1100; today noted with news in English till 1009, when they played the usual patriotic
song “Bagimu Negeri” (For You Our Country); followed by "Today in History"; announced frequency of "3-3-2-5
KiloHertz"; normal audio level during English (1007-1100), but by 1211 the audio was gone (just dead air).

4749.95, VOI, via Cimanggis/Jakarta, noted at 1211 UT, Feb 11. Clearly VOI and CNR1 (4750.0) mixing together
here, along with CODAR QRM; both unusable, but certainly two stations. VOI is becoming more regularly heard here.

KOREA SOUTH. back to their alternate frequency of 5920 (ex: 6045), Voice of Freedom, 1156 UT, Feb 11. Closing SA

with the normal "evening devotional"; 1201-1203, usual SA followed by National Anthem.
Thought the xmtr might be turned off after NA, but went to non-stop music; unable to confirm
if a Wantok FM relay or just SIBC programming; still on the air at 1240..

VANUATU. 5040, Radio Vanuatu, anomaly on March 13, from 1050 to 1129* UT; was checking for

UNID[suspect MONGOLIA]. 4895, Mongolian Radio, on March 13, first noted at 1133 with definite

consistent with their past receptions here; checked for their // 7260, but that was blocked with a
strong station. I daily check 4895 and it has been a long time since I last heard anything. Do not
believe it is the ghost of AIR Kurseong, hi! Might be worthwhile to check this frequency.

Sent off an email to RTM. Still missing March 13, at 1240 UT check.

RTM is back to work on Monday (March 14), so here is the nice reply to my email:

Dear Ron Howard,

First of all, I would like to thank you for choosing our SW channel as your choice.

For your information, our SW transmitter is off the air due to the main power supply to the transmitter and
the building has a problem. Now still under repairs and hope our SW channel will be back on the air soon.

Thank you.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. The long standing silence continues; 3260 (NBC Madang), 3325 (NBC Bougainville)
and 7325 (Wantok Radio Light) were all unheard at my location. On 3325, at 1000, the carrier of
the Voice of Indonesia was heard, which had already started.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020 and 9545, both with no signal. Seems strange that this and Vanuatu were silent
on the same day.

VANUATU. 5040 and checked their usual other frequencies, all with no signal.

BTW - Overall conditions seemed decent. Radio 4KZ (5055) heard slightly above the norm; Frankie Valli

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC - Voice of the Nation. Yesterday (March 15) noted this off the air;
probably working on xmtr adjustment(?), as audio on March 16 was the best I have heard in a long
time. From 1012+ UT; mostly in Solomon Is. Pijin; island songs; commercial announcements (mobile
service, etc.); 1100, calliope and news; various amounts of Cuba (5025) QRM. Nice to hear them again
with some decent modulation! My audio is at https://bit.ly/3te0h7d .

Solomon Islands: SIBC 5020 @ 1920 UTC Friday, 18 March via SDR near Forester, NSW Australia.
As Ron Howard reported, it is nice to hear them once again with much improved audio.
1920 UT Female ancr discussing covid guidelines for businesses and service providers.
Switching back and forth to 5040, Vanuatu weak in the static at 1913 UT with male ancr in local vernacular.
1924 SIBC with various commercials and PSA's (U-save Mobile is running a promo) 1925 PSA on fitness and exercise,
bumper for "SIBC Voice of the Nation" then into an upbeat tempo song.
I'm finding this is a very enjoyable station to listen to while working in my office, and I'm looking forward to
post more material on this site. I've always enjoyed chasing DX and SWL from asia and pacific region.

Hi Chris - Welcome to this site. Glad you are also enjoying the SIBC reception. Ron

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait, *0955 UT, March 16. Started with IS; 0956, Chinese IDs; 1000, time pips
and Chinese/English SAs ("This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio"). Before 0955, Colombia was
doing fairly well.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, March 18, another day with wonderful audio level; reminds me of my reception
from years ago. At 0812 UT, several clear "Voice of the nation" IDs; 0832-0858, in English with public
service educational program for students about health; balanced diet, exercise regularly, quit smoking,
reduce alcohol use (for college students?), wash and dry hands, check available resources via newspapers,
TV, radio, etc.; 1104, news in English; played a lot of nice island music. Very pleasant to have audio
levels that at times were semi-readable, with various amounts of adjacent Cuban QRM. A vast improvement
from their long standing low modulation broadcasting!

TAIWAN. 6214.94v, Sound of Hope, ID at 1401 UT, March 16. Unusual to find this one minute out of sync
with 6230 // 6280; all with fair reception.

Fu Hsing BS, 9410 (best) // 9774 (very poor), 0847-0900* UT, March 16 (Wed.). A good day with announcers
in Chinese and music; cut off in mid-song; // 15375 has not been heard recently.

VANUATU. 5040, Radio Vanuatu, 0633 UT, March 18. Cuba already off the air; 1034-1056, monolog (religious?);
1056, religious song in English; 1100-1102*, full ID with frequencies and National Anthem; so they are back
to their former schedule/format; much better than usual reception.

Very strong signal on 7420 at 0103 in Romanian language SIO=444.

VANUATU. 11835 (3rd harmonic), Radio Vanuatu, 0700-1005 UT, on Apr 13. Thanks very much to 
Lucio Otavio Bobrowiec (Brazil) in WOR iog, for the early alert, which motivated me to go
to the beach early today to catch some nice island music; // 7890 (2nd harmonic) also
being heard at about the same level; QRN (static); while 3945 was unusable and for much
of the time covered by hams. A few highlights:

0701-0714: News/sports/weather in Bislama (lead-off story pertaining to the 2015 suspended
sentence for former Finance Minister, and former member of Parliament, Willie Jimmy and
mentioned he was banned from holding public office for ten years; at times fairly readable
(my brief audio attached).

0719: A Celine Dion song.

0730-0742: Language lesson all in English; "We will talk about how to write . . . Here is
what we need to do . . .". This is the first time that I have heard this program.

0915-0958: Listener's calling in to chat (Bislama).

1000: News in Bislama.

Re: Voice of Indonesia back again with much improved signal/audio! Ron Howard - Apr 22 (Fri), 2022 16:24 UTC No.5060

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya. This frequency had been silent for rather a long time
and I had begun to wonder if they would ever return again; on Apr 22, checked at 1133 UT, only to find VOI still
clearly off the air.

1300-1311 UT, wonderful to hear VOI again and doing well with start of English segment; intro ID ("3-3-25 kHz.");
news (many items about the Bali "Conference on Impact of R & D on Business Economics, Management, Social
Sciences, Banking & Finance" [ https://bireacademy.com/conferences/besst-april-2022/ ], item about Shanghai's
lockdown, etc.) and "commentary"; followed by the national song “Bagimu Negeri,” which is normally played after
the news.

1311: Program "Today in History"; this date in 1994, former President Nixon died, this date 2015, Asian-African
Conference held in Jakarta.

1317: VOI ID and program "My Indonesia." Brief audio attached - fairly readable!

1323: COVID PSA given in a multitude of languages (Indonesian, Arabic, Japanese, English ["wear a mask,
it will protect you"] and many more)

1325: Program "Indonesian Wonder," about breakfast foods.

1335: Spot about on-line education, website designing, etc.

1345: Program "Today's Music Corner."

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya. As Bruce Churchill noted yesterday (Apr 25) in
WOR iog, VOI is having serious issues regarding their audio feed from Jakarta; partially fixed today (Apr 26);
heard from 1246 UT till audio feed ended at 1329. Today had decent signal strength and was mostly readable.
My local sunrise was at 1319 UT.

1246-1300 UT (21:46-22:00 JST): In Japanese.

1301-1317, start of English segment; news; at 1310, "Commentary," with a message that the gov't has given
permission for people to be able to return to their hometown for the celebration of Eid al-Fitr (official holiday to
celebrate the end of the month long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan), still some concerns about COVID-19
and gave vaccination requirements; 1315-1317, the national song “Bagimu Negeri.”

1317: Program "Today in History"; this date in 1959, Soewardi Soerjaningrat died, who was the father of Indonesian
national education; this date in 1986, the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster happened; this date in 2000, the first
World Intellectual Property Day was observed.

1321: COVID PSA given in a multitude of languages (Indonesian, Arabic, Japanese, English [help stop the spread of
COVID by wearing your mask properly] and many other languages).

1327: Program "My Indonesia."

1329: Audio feed lost; just a strong open carrier heard; dead air. Randomly checked through 1404, but audio never
returned, just the open carrier heard.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, on May 2, heard with a good audio feed. Am enjoying
the recently improved receptions! Today had decent signal strength and was fairly readable. Some highlights:

1259 UT: In Japanese with closing ID and contact info.

1300: Start of English segment; news ("National News" & "International News" [Qantas Airways, will be offering a
non-stop 19 hour flight from Sydney to London, via a special Airbus, etc.]); 1309, the national song “Bagimu Negeri.”

1313: Program "Today in History"; this date in 1964, Cut Nyak Dhien awarded National Hero of Indonesia, this date
in 1974, Nelson Mandela became President of South Africa.

1315 & 1334: COVID PSA given in a multitude of languages (Indonesian, Arabic, Japanese, English [help stop the
spread of COVID by wearing your mask properly] and many more languages).

1327: Program "My Indonesia"; about Friday's meeting in Indonesia between Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi”
Widodo and the Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, for joint economic development.

1328: Program "Indonesian Wonder," about a beach resort.

1336-1340: Program "Let`s Learn Bahasa Indonesia" ("Arrive at the airport"). My audio posted at http://bit.ly/3kykb7Z .

KOREA SOUTH. 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, on May 2 (Monday), from 1126 to
1152 UT; audio feed from TV program "Wang cho bo yeong-eo", with "Mayu" and "Mini." These frequencies should be
good through May 8 (Sunday). My audio of very good 6348 kHz. reception, posted at http://bit.ly/3LBpCyT .

MALAYSIA[non-Sarawak]. 11665, Wai FM via Kajang. What has happened here? For a long time this was heard with
poor to very poor reception, along with poor audio (overmodulated), while Sarawak FM (9835) was well heard with
good audio. Then on March 12, I first noted both frequencies were off the air for a while; later Wai FM returned
to the air, while Sarawak FM remained off (still silent through May 2). Wai FM has recently been heard very well
and with good audio. So I have to wonder if Wai FM is now via the former Sarawak FM xmtr, which would explain the
improved reception?

Wai FM (11665), on May 2, from 1203+ UT, with on-air chatting over the phone, with non-stop background indigenous
music. My audio is posted at http://bit.ly/38IfHsG .

TNX! AOKI
This is not NK Jamming. It seems mixed same as Jamming of 6250kHz.

Re: KOREA : Clandestine to North Korea Ron Howard - Jan 28, 2016 16:01 UTC No.844
RE: 4885

Jan 28 also noted the same sound; heard very faintly underneath VOH. Concluded it was much to weak
to be jamming and was not the type of jamming used on other VOH frequencies. So I believe 4885 is still
not jammed, but needs regular monitoring. Noted with the usual good signal.

Pyongyang BS on 4557 kHz Philadelphia - Jun 22, 2017 14:00 UTC No.2354
Hello Mr. XYZ, It's been such a long time. (I'm Kowalski, now I have ID and nickname with
Philadelphia on the websites, so changed :D) recently, I was surprised at operating V24
entirely these days. I'm also monitoring them, even captured their mistakes on 5900 kHz.
Well... it made us not be sure if it is really Numbers Station more and more as it makes such things. XD

at 12:42 UTC, I could view the spectrum on 4557 kHz, it was a funny thing because VOP had
already moved their frequencies. I found out it is also sending Pyongyang BS. Still now.

Re: KOREA : Clandestine to North Korea Philadelphia - Jun 22, 2017 14:04 UTC No.2355
On 4557 kHz, and also, I couldn't find any jamming sound.
I guess it has been broadcasting through its transmitter which was originally jammer transmitter.

Turned off: 23:12 UTC // Turned on: 05:32 UTC
It is similar to the air time of Voice of People.
I guess they don't change their transmitting plan yet.
Its power is too weak than other jamming signals which aim at VOP.

Pyongyang Broadcasting has been out even when jamming comes out, and it has been
confirmed when past super jamming is stopped. This time also the jamming transmitter
has not changed to broadcasting, it seems that the comparatively low power transmitter
which is coming out in the past is still in operation now.

I've finally gotten around to uploading the full hour of 4885 Echo of Hope's broadcast loop.
The following recording is from a close (unnamed, due to our dabbling in North Korean
propaganda over the years) friend who lives about a half hour from the 4885 tower (the
tower was much closer to my home), while the one-hour schedule and the transliteration
of the opening posted below were both originally posted in this group by Ron Howard with
help from Japanese friends.
Here's the 60-minute clip of 4885 South Korea recorded back on June 26th. You can find
photos of the tower of origin that I posted in the Transmitter Photos group in the past
if you search hard enough.

4885, Echo of Hope VOH. The program's name that is looped
every hour is called "Radio Broadcasting Guide." As such it
provides a lot of info about Korean stations, with segments
with many different singing jingle IDs, as well as clips of
different stations spoken IDs; with some in English -
"V O A World News" & "Radio Free Korea"; whereas most

KOREA SOUTH. On Oct 1, with some new clandestine frequencies. Thanks very much to the 
timely alerts from both Hiroshi and Hiroyuki Komatsubara, as to these changes.

Voice of the People, at 1042:

3905 (ex 3910), now clear reception, except some ham QRM. Is unlikely that Pro 1 RRI Merauke (Indonesia) or
NBC New Ireland (PNG) will ever return here, but now the frequency is definitely in use.

3475 (ex 3480), now clear reception.

3930, 4450, 6520 no change.

6595 (ex 6600), now clear reception.

Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1037:

3980 (ex 3985), now clear reception, except some ham QRM. My audio at http://bit.ly/2o9WUiT , of an English language lesson (1130-1200).

4885, 6250, 9100 unchanged.

5990 (ex 5995), now in the clear, but poor Myanmar on 5985, now was to contend with some QRM from VOH, as well as strong N. Korea jamming QRM from 5980 (against Shiokaze).

6348 (ex 6350), now clear reception.

Hi Ron-san
Thank you for the information.
I checked 6250 kHz, too.

KOREA SOUTH. 6250, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1100- UT, Feb 23 (Wednesday).
North Korea's super jamming is so powerful that it cannot be confirmed.
I managed to confirm VOH, but I could not confirm VOP.

VOP, 3480, Feb 23 (Wednesday).
VOP was a good reception, although bubble jamming had some effect.
At 1132 UT, “Radio Munhaggwan“ (Radio Literature Museum) program has started.
At 1146 UT, “Sesang Manligyeong“ (World mirror) program has started.
My audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4804.mp3 .

VOH, 3990, Feb 23 (Wednesday).
Good reception with little effect of jamming.
At 1155 UT, “Segye-wa Naneun“ (World And Me) program has started.
My audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4805.mp3 .
The first song of this program, The Jadu, it’s called Gimbap.

Re: SOUTH KOREA : Voice of Freedom (2) Ron Howard - Aug 21, 2017 14:23 UTC No.2481
KOREA SOUTH. new frequency of 6045, Voice of Freedom
(presumed), on Aug 21, noted strong reception (not jammed),
with programming that certainly was consistent with VOF;
1001 and subsequent monitoring till 1304. Segments with
announcers chatting, dramatic monologues, pop songs,
dramatizations, etc. My five minute audio - http://goo.gl/VBj7rq .

Today VOF, as I noted yesterday, clearly not on 6135, 5920, 5940
nor on 6020. Thanks to Amano and Hiroyuki Komatsubara for their
confirmation of this new frequency.

Ron-san, ARIGATOUGOZAIMASU !!

FB audio good signal !!

I do not understand Korean so much, so I can not catch program name ...
AMANO and CHULSU 's report seems to be a repetition of 2 hours of programming.

** There was no short-wave frequency guidance..

Re: SOUTH KOREA : Voice of Freedom (2) Ron Howard - Aug 22, 2017 20:50 UTC No.2487
Perhaps the change in frequency is related to the increased military
activity that started on Monday?

"SEOUL, South Korea ・The United States and South Korea began
their annual joint military exercises on Monday . . . "

VOF was again on 6045 today (Aug 22) and still in the clear with no
jamming. Very strong signal here on the coast.

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

Hello! Ron-san.

Thank you very much for the very clear audio from California!
This audio is VOF program "Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo" exactly.

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.

** KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - Voice of Hope (VOH). Regarding
my May 10 audio clips: Thanks very much to Amano-san (Saitama,
Japan) for his ongoing excellent job of deciphering my Korean audio
files:

My 3985 kHz. audio at http://goo.gl/sMmqcp and 4885 kHz. audio
at http://goo.gl/NdMCuH :

http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/?#4237 (Now On The Radio) -

"Hello! Ron-san. Thank you for always reporting from California.

3985 kHz is always crushed by North Korean Jamming. However,
without North Korean Jamming, VOH can be heard in California
like local broadcasting. What a great [audio]!

4885 kHz. This audio is a news program called "Onule Soshi" (Today's
News).

The first news from Tokyo is the Japan-China-Korea summit held in
Japan.
4885 kHz. Ron-san's audio clip (00:00-00:12) is talked as follows.

Korean: "Tokyo. Mun jaein daetonglyeong-gwa, Li ko-chang jung-gug
gugmuwon chongli, Abe shinzo ilbon chongli ga, oneul ilbon-eseo manna, ..."

In English: "Tokyo. Prime Minister Moon Jae-in and Li Keqiang China State
Council Prime Minister, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Today they met in Japan, ..."

(Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA, Et E1, antenna: 100' long wire,
WOR iog via DXLD)

** KOREA SOUTH. 6045.0, Voice of Freedom, 1100, May 11. Even with N.
Korean pips jamming, is fairly well heard with the "Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo"
program in Korean ("Korean people, to unity, to the future" ). Clearly this
transmitter is not the same one that was drifting downward and off frequency
(ex: 5917.4v). 6045.0 is very stable. My audio at http://goo.gl/otm5ko .

Amano provides the complete program schedule for VOF, with both Korean
and English names, at the "Now On The Radio" website:
http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:2480#3252 , which is an excellent source for
info about Asian stations. I check it daily! (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach,

Thank you very much for the beautiful photos of Ocean Beach.
I would like to listen to the radio in a relaxed place in such a place.
And I'd like to swim when the weather is nice.
But the rip currents is scary.

VOF opening music is "Frontier". Amano - May 29, 2018 22:49 UTC No.3276
Mr. Chulsu.
Thank you for the information of the VOF opening music from Seoul, Republic of Korea!

as I am not sure of most of them? Appreciate any assistance you can
provide! Thank you.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, on July 8 (Sunday - new schedule).
Thanks very much to Amano's alert of the VOF schedule changes, here at
"Now On The Radio." Have attempted today to confirm some of the changes,
for both program SA/times and closing time. All jammed by N. korea.

Hi Glenn,

Once again I am indebted to Amano-san (Japan) for his excellent
ability to decipher my Voice of Freedom audio files. Where would
I be without his kind assistance? His never ending support
encourages me to keep monitoring VOF.

Have been interested to learn that my reception here on the California
coast is in fact mostly better than heard by Amano-san in Japan or even
by Chulsu in Seoul, South Korea. Suspect that they are just to close to
the jamming of VOF by N. Korea to be able to dig out the same reception
as I can. My greater distance from the jamming, somehow doesn't bother
the VOF signal so much.

Ron

- - - - Here are Amano-san's comments about my audio: "Now On The Radio"
website - http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/#4392 .

What a wonderful sound!
Nice catch from California! Ron-san.

I was able to unravel the program names at 1020 and 1040 UTC! [July 11 audio]
I am very grateful to Ron-san!
I am very happy right now!
Thank you very much!!!

** VOF 6045 kHz. Jeonyeog bangsong, weekday program, 11 July, Wed. **

>> 1020 UTC - http://goo.gl/623EG7

The program ID in this audio is 00:11-00:14, 00:35 and 00:58.
This program name is "Hanla-eseo Baegdu-kkaji".
In English, "From Halla to Baekdu".

Halla and Baekdu are mountain names.
Mt. Halla is located in Jeju island, South Korea.
Mt. Baekdu is in North Korea across the border with China.

I think that this program name has the meaning of
"Korean Peninsula, from the southernmost tip to the northernmost tip"
by using the name of the mountain.

Ron-san's audio of this program, the first song is
"Red Flavor" by Red Velvet.
https://youtu.be/WyiIGEHQP8o
In this program, male DJ introduces the song title
"Ppalgan mas" in Korean.
01:03-01:05, male DJ says "Red Velvet, Ppalgan mas."

My audio at http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4358.mp3
KOREA SOUTH. 9100, VOH, on June 22.
It is the same song as the 4th track of this audio.

>> 1040 UTC - http://goo.gl/mUTsLA

The program ID in this audio is 00:13, 00:33 and 01:18.
This program name is "Segyeneun hana".
In English, "The world is one".

This program broadcasts the world music, not K-POP.
My audio at http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4380.mp3
1640-1700 UTC, July 7, Sat. https://youtu.be/fV4DiAyExN0
I was surprised when "The Reasen" by Hoobastank's song was heard.
Listening to this on my audio again, you can check the program ID at
00:34 and 01:20. Until I listened to Ron-san's clear audio, I could not
confirm the program name with my audio.

- - - - - a portion of what Ron wrote:

** KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, . . . . July 11 (Wednesday) ,
at 0959, with the end of "Bugnyeok-e ttuiuneun eum-ag pyeonji"(?) program;
1000, the "Bodo gwangjang" program ("News plaza"); 1020 probably
the new program called something like "Han Min Jok Yokusagi"(?) (needs
confirmation); 1040 new program (positive name not confirmed yet); 1100
"Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo" program.

KOREA SOUTH. 6250, Echo of Hope - VOH and Voice of the People mixing together, 0941+ UT, Feb 21 (Monday).
Seems the S. Korean National Intelligence Service got their signals mixed up today (operates both VOH & VOP);
VOH with program of pop songs in English (Michael Jackson - "Billie Jean," etc.), while VOP had announcers (0957,
"Bodo" [news]); VOP was possibly testing here, as there were extended periods being off the air and on the air.
Brief audio attached (VOP with announcer and VOH with Michael Jackson song).

VOH, observed Feb 21 (Monday) with new frequencies good through Feb 27: heard 3990 // 4885 // 6000 // 6250
(VOP QRM) // 6355 // 9100, from 0915+ UT.

VOP, observed Feb 21 (Monday) with new developments: heard 3910 [3930 off the air] // 3480 // 4450 [6520 off the air]

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, on April 5, cut off at 1306:05 UT; still averaging close to 5 seconds
earlier every day.

CHINA / VANUATU. 11835, random monitoring on April 6 (Tuesday), from 0510 to 0705 UT; CNR2
dominating the whole time over Radio Vanuatu (harmonic); CNR2 didn't close down at 0600, as
they did last week; by 0615, started fading in of RV on 7890, with 3945 no heard; at 0701, could
make out the distinctive start of the RV news underneath CNR2.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, 1345 UT, April 3. Another day with very
decent audio; SA and frequency; "Music Corner" show, with Indonesian songs; later at 1409, after
the news in Bahasa Indonesia, distinctive national song “Bagimu Negeri” (For You Our Country);
almost fair reception.

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. April 5 (Monday) observations:

VOH: 3980 // 4885 (good - never jammed here) // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100 (good - never jammed here),
at 1110 UT; news in Korean; for a long time VOH had changed their frequencies every Monday, but anomaly
today with no changes!

VOP: 3480 (still the best) // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1105 UT. As usual, as it has been for a long
time now, with no changes from last week.

Voice of Freedom: 6045, at 1115 UT; poor due to N. Korea super jamming QRM. Ex 5920 was a clear frequency
today, except for OTH radar. Hope that VOF will shortly return to 5920 again, where they would have good
reception. N. Korea super jamming noted on both 6045 and again on 6135.

KCBS Pyongyang DRM, on 3205, at 1255 UT; regularly heard with good signal.

KCBS Pyongyang, on 3250 // 3959, at 1134 & 1251 UT; both equally fair; 3920 was off the air today.  

Pyongyang BS, on 6160 (good) continues broadcasting here (assume ex 6400) and // 3320 (poor-fair), at 1132 UT.

National Unity Radio, 9475, from 1245 to 1246 UT, 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; fair; strong N. Korea jamming noted at 1158, but NUR was strong enough to mostly block out
the jamming after *1200.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1523+ UT, April 3 (Saturday). The usual format; Buddhist chanting of the sutra,
followed by the ringing of a bell, English segment; 1538, "weather news"; after the daily news and weather report,
they always play the same song - "We Are Unity" (video posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMvAQXjQCDs );
music program (One Direction - "Drag Me Down," etc.) till 1559, when blocked by CRI sign-on.

9730, Myanmar Radio, on April 4 (Sunday), heard 1109-1128 UT, with children's show; chatting on the phone and
also with children singing alone (no music or anything) (audio attached); 1128, usual singing station jingle; *1140
start of // 5985; hard to say just when 9730 cut off (1145* UT?), due to CNR1 jamming of SOH; Myanmar clearly
running later than the normal 1130* UT. Today also monitored by Ralph Perry and Mark Taylor.

April 5, found 9730 still with anomaly; running today till 1155* UT, with no CNR1 jamming heard; 5985, with very
weak *1156, but quickly went off the air; still off at last check at 1301.

VANUATU. April 14 - RV went back to an alternate frequency.

7260 kHz. - Tuned in at 0515 to hear an UNID; extremely poor, but slowly improving; by 0545, with
positive SA and island music; cut off at 0559* UT; ex: 3945 & harmonics.

7890 kHz. - RV 2nd Harmonic - *0600 UT, with brief news headlines, followed by the extended weather
report; poor; unable to hear 3945 or 3rd harmonic (11835).

Re: Voice of Indonesia Ron Howard - Apr 15 (Thu), 2021 15:55 UTC No.4833
INDONESIA. Voice of Indonesia doing very well this week!

3325, VOI, via Palangkaraya, on April 15, from 1400+ UT; in Bahasa Indonesia; SA, news and patriotic
song “Bagimu Negeri” (For You Our Country); mostly fair; my audio posted at http://bit.ly/3dirptQ .

4749.95, VOI, via Cimanggis/Jakarta, 1200-1218, April 12. Unusual reception; clearly able to hear VOI
(Japanese) mixing with CNR1 (Chinese); this was possible as Bangladesh had not started yet. 3325,
via Palangkaraya, was heard with a strong carrier, but no trace of any audio today. April 14, again had
positive VOI reception 1311-1314, with distinctive national song “Bagimu Negeri,” after the news in
English; mixing with China and Bangladesh's test tone (BB IS started at 1314 and time pips at 1315);
today heard very decent carrier on 3325, but no trace of any audio.

Thank you for following me.

At the start, it was difficult to hear due to North Korean jamming.
I wanted to know how to say “我好感動“ in Korean in the program.
I found it at 00:21 in your audio.
00:21- 오늘은 “감동 받았어요“...; oneul-eun “gamdong bad-ass-eoyo“...; Today, “I am very touched”....

North Korean jamming interference is small in California.
In Japan, the interference is greater.

I am very happy and touched that I was listening to the same broadcast as you at the same time.

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;
several brief, clear SAs; 1059, National Anthem; 1100+ dead air (no audio).

9730 kHz. - Today (April 20), unlike yesterday, KNLS (Alaska) definitely on the air; stilted Chinese, totally dominating 
frequency 1121+ UT, with positive Myanmar (very poor) far underneath. This frequency tentatively had Myanmar with
1152* UT; seemed to be a 3rd station on frequency (SOH?). While on 5985 kHz., noted Myanmar Radio with *1129 UT;
// 9730.

Very unusual today (1210 UT) to find PBS Xizang (Tibet) off the air on all their frequencies (checked 4820, 4905, 4920,

A few misc. observations from Asilomar Beach, Calif., USA, for April 23

PBS Xizang (Tibet) off the air again today (April 23), on all their frequencies (checked 4820,
4905, 4920, 6130 & 6200), at 0920, 1004 & 1041 UT. Seeing as Ivo reported in WOR iog them
on 9580, at 0700 UT, April 22, perhaps on a different abbreviated schedule or just different
frequencies now?

Today Myanmar Radio had fair reception on 9730, from 1120 till cut off at 1201* UT (no QRM;
no KNLS heard at all, nor CNR1 jamming, nor SOH); interesting rendition of "Strangers In The
Night," in Burmese! CRI (English) started at 1200, but Myanmar clearly heard going off, underneath
China. So a definite change from ex: 1130*. MR suddenly came on about 1122, on 5985 and was // 9730.

Radio Vanuatu, 1030-1037 UT, on 7890 (harmonic), with the usual preaching in Bislama; 1037-1101,
non-stop religious songs (most in English); 1101, now giving their full SA, along with frequencies; NA;
ended audio at 1103; just dead air till transmitter off 1114 (must be on a timer, as have recently noted
them going off at the same time); closing ID unlike their former extremely brief "Radio Vanuatu" SA
before the NA.

NBC continues their long standing silence on 3260 (NBC Madang) and 3325 (NBC Bougainville);
checking 1118+ UT today (and checked most days!).

Sarawak FM (9835) was again doing fairly well today; while 11665 (Wai FM) is never well heard.

"Jinling Voice Broadcasting Station  

With the passing of time, we have entered the era of passionate media integration. On the occasion
of the 30th anniversary of the birth of the Voice of Jinling Radio Station, the Voice of Jinling
Network has met you.

On November 12, 1986, the Voice of Jinling Broadcasting Station came out on the 120th anniversary of

Thank you for the information about Voice of Jinling.
The program I received is also in the program list.
Your VOJL QSL card is very good.

Re: Myanmar Radio - Change of English language lesson Ron Howard - Apr 28 (Wed), 2021 15:09 UTC No.4844

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1250-1301, April 28 (Wednesday). Tuned in expecting to hear the usual 
"Learning English with BBC, Burmese," but instead they were airing the "Say It In English" program,
which is also produced in England and was carried by MR years ago; mostly readable. Am very pleased
to hear this series of lessons back on the air again, as it is always a pleasure to hear the comical
misadventures of "Tom." I have heard today's show twice in the past, on Aug 7, 2017 and Feb 5, 2018.
My audio of a portion of today's program is at http://bit.ly/3u5EGMo .

In DXLD 17-32: "5985, Myanmar Radio, on Aug 7, 2017, tuned in at 1215, to hear the Monday edition of
the English language lesson ("Say It In English") already in progress; program will be repeated on Wed.;
dialogue between "Mr. Harris" and "Tom," who wants Tom to take the morning 7:00 train to Manchester;
"The meeting is very important. Don't miss the train"; Tom works for a company that "makes some of the
finest clocks and watches in the world," but he is "never on time for anything"; he missed the train
and then rushes to take a taxi to the airport to catch the 8:00 plane to Manchester; 1227 end of "Say
It In English"; fairly readable . . . "

9730, Myanmar Radio, 1142-1154*, April 28. Continuing to run well past their former 1130*; mostly
stronger than KNLS (Alaska) on frequency; both fairly distinctive programs, so easy to tell them
apart; no CNR1 jamming nor SOH heard; closing time varies a little.

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.
KNLS, Alaska carrier on at 1059’38“ UT.

April 30 - Checking for the Friday edition of "Say It In English," on 5985 (Myanmar Radio) 
and heard it 1245-1259 UT, but with a different program than heard on Wed.; today "Tom" was
checking into a hotel to get a quiet night's sleep, but "poor Tom has been trying to sleep
for three hours now," but a loud TV was being played in the room next to his; better than
semi-readable. I first heard this same program back on Sept 10, 2018, also on 5985, via MR.

Hi Amano - Greetings from California!

Recently have been hearing Wai FM (11665 kHz.) with better than normal signal strength.
Have noted the audio quality is rather poor. The constant crackling sound I believe is
due to a problem with their transmitter. Sarawak FM (9835 kHz.) doesn't have any problem
with their audio.

I also very much enjoy hearing the unique Wai FM SA's. This from 2012 - https://app.box.com/s/f82b0de9844a0af1ea10 .

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.

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.

CHINA. 6200, Voice of Jinling, *1228-1229* and *1230+, May 7. Started with their well known 
double sign on; on for about 25 seconds, then off for about 43 seconds, then finally on to stay;
in Chinese and EZL song. Currently with nice clear reception, due to Xizang PBS (Tibet - Lhasa)
now being off the air here for temporary maintenance, which normally causes some QRM for VOJL.
Thanks to Wolfie for this item:

"RTC Kashgar-Kashi broadcast center of CRI, on refurbishing repair action on April 15 til 29, 2021;
acc mail from CRI Beijing German sce.

Maybe the RTC transmitter engineers solved the Kashgar work and now moved to Tibetan CTB
Lhasa-Baiding site for annual maintenance refurbishing work ? (wb  df5sx, wwdxc BC-DX TopNews

My unedited audio of VOJL starting up today, posted at http://bit.ly/3evdlh8 .

INDIA. 5040, AIR Jeypore, 1230, May 8. A change in format? Seems different now. My local sunrise today
was at 1306 UT. 1230-1235: Subcontinent music (clearly no news!); 1235-1240: News; too weak to make
out the language?; 1240: More subcontinent music (indigenous singing/chanting) (clearly no news!); Is this
really a new format with only 5 minutes of news?

KOREA NORTH[non-log]. 6160, Pyongyang BS, both May 7 & 8 noted off the air, after only recently moving
here; today not on ex: 6400 either; 3320 was heard normally.

KOREA SOUTH. 5857.48 AM, HLL2 Seoul, 1005-1012, on May 7. With English weather info from various
observatories in Asia (Shanghai, etc.) providing wind direction, wind speed in meters per second, air pressure
in hectopascals, temperature in Celsius; mostly fair; heard daily.

LAOS[non-log]. 6130, LNR. Recently emailed the Director General of Lao National Radio (Phosy Keomanivong),
saying in part: "For a long time now I have noted the absence of LNR on SW. I hope that you will again be able to
transmit on 6130 kHz. in the near future. Your presence on SW is greatly missed!" No reply yet. Thanks to Mauno
Ritola, for his encouragement to contact LNR. Now with the temporary absence of Xizang PBS (Tibet - Lhasa), it is
especially clear that LNR is not broadcasting on 6130. (May 8)

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang (on the west coast of the Malaysia peninsular - not from Sarawak), 1044,
May 7. The distinctive Islamic Maghrib (sunset prayer) call-to-prayer. My audio is posted at http://bit.ly/3xUBc1z . Much
better audio here than now being heard via Wai FM, on 11665.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, *1154, May 7. Seems that one of the Myanmar transmitters is not working.
Normally in the past, both 5985 and 9730 each had separate transmitters, evidenced by both frequencies often
heard on the air at the same time, but recently as soon as 9730 closes down, 5985 starts operating; today 9730,
went off at 1154*, continuing on with their new schedule (ex: 1130*). May 8, heard 9730, with 1156* and 5985,
with *1156.

Later on May 7 - Checking for the Friday edition of "Say It In English"; heard at 1243-1256; "What is the best
way to London? (way to the airport?) . . What do you think I should do? . . Can you recommend a good hotel?
(a good restaurant?) (a good book?) . . ," "Tom" has to travel to Guildford on business and "Kate" wants to come
along, but they get caught in a traffic jam; semi-readable.

SINGAPORE. 6676-USB, Singapore Radio, on May 8, *1250-1254*. VOLMET weather for Hong Kong, Bali, etc.;
"Broadcast ends. Singapore Radio out"; fairly readable.

TAIWAN. 9774, Fu Hsing BS, 0833-1000*, May 7 (Friday). Sign off time here varies a great deal; seems to be
either about 0900 or 1000; tuned into a very weak signal, but slowly improved; Chinese announcers and some
EZL Chinese songs; am still not hearing any carrier on clear 9410, which had been a second frequency for them.
Are they repairing or doing maintenance on the 9410 transmitter?

Re: Radio Vanuatu - New schedule (5040 kHz.) Ron Howard - May 10 (Mon), 2021 22:01 UTC No.4862
Bryan Clark (New Zealand) kindly checked for the new Radio Vanuatu schedule. His reply on May 10:

"Yes, listening here in Mangawhai - 3945 closed at 2059:30 and 5040 opened at 2059:34 - decent carrier
but poor audio given the daylight signal path."

Thanks to Bryan for updating the new schedule.
 
Of course for those of us in NoAm, we have to contend with a strong Cuba on 5040 most of the time.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, 1755-1905, May 10 (Monday).
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.
VOF's one-day program guide is at https://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:4826 .
At 1900, "Haengboghan Daehanmingug (Happy Republic of Korea)“ starts.
North Korean jamming was a little noticeable.
I summarized my received audio with a flash for the 1 minute part of the program start.
My audio attached. (06:00)

Hi Amano,

Thank you for your most informative information!! On May 9 (Sunday), I also noted the same.

At 1157 UT, clear SA ("Aneun geos-i him-ida" - Knowing is power), at the end of the program.

At 1200 UT, station name, a time signal announcement, and VOF SJ before the start of "Bodo gwangjang" - News plaza.
Audio of portions of my reception posted at http://bit.ly/3uEYI0q .

Great information from you > " 'Bodo gwangjang (News plaza)' will be broadcast at 0900, 1200, 1500, 1800, 2100, 0000

I was checking for the Sunday only "COVID-19 Prevention Measures" program, if still aired from 1155 to 1200 UT? No,
only the "Aneun geos-i him-ida" program was heard, so no longer with the COVID-19 program.

Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom, COVID-19 program. Now...? Amano - May 12 (Wed), 2021 11:00 UTC No.4867
Hello! Ron-san

I will answer the following questions.
> I was checking for the Sunday only "COVID-19 Prevention Measures" program, if still aired from 1155 to 1200 UT? No,
only the "Aneun geos-i him-ida" program was heard, so no longer with the COVID-19 program.

In 2020, the COVID-19 program was broadcast every Sunday at the time of the "Ma-eum-e swimpyo" (Resting heart).
"Ma-eum-e swimpyo" was a weekend-only program.
As of 2021, it is broadcast every day.
The COVID-19 program has not been confirmed since 2021.
"Ma-eum-e swimpyo" has been broadcast since 2021 at the following times.

* "Ma-eum-e swimpyo (Resting heart)" broadcast time (Everyday)
0915, 1815, 2115, 0010 and 0310 UTC

If the COVID-19 program is still airing on Sunday, check it out at the times of the following Days.
1815 UTC on Saturday
2115 UTC on Saturday
0010 UTC on Sunday
0310 UTC on Sunday
0915 UTC on Sunday

In addition, since "Jugan jonghab bodo gwangjang (Weekly general news plaza)“ is broadcast on Saturday, COVID-19 may also be on Saturday.
In that case,
1815 UTC on Friday
2115 UTC on Friday
0010 UTC on Saturday
0310 UTC on Saturday
0915 UTC on Saturday

If there is no broadcast on the weekend, the COVID-19 program is not being broadcast now.

Re: Islamic call-to-prayers Ron Howard - May 12 (Wed), 2021 18:25 UTC No.4869
Hi Amano,

Sorry for any confusion I caused about the Muslim call-to-prayers.

Here is a list of the five Islamic call-to-prayer times for Kuching (Sarawak) for Wednesday, 12 May.
Muslims are called-to-prayer five times a day. These are carried via Sarawak FM (9835 kHz.) and
the prayers are always about 3 to 4 minutes long. They are different from the usual reciting from the
Qur'an. Is easy to ID them by their unique individual timings and during the prayer, many references
to "Allah akbar." Here is audio of a recent, typical Maghrib call-to-prayer -  http://bit.ly/3xUBc1z .

Fajr                05:19 AM (2119 UT) - the dawn prayer
Dhuhr             12:39 PM (0439 UT) - early afternoon prayer
Asr                 16:01 PM (0801 UT) - late afternoon prayer
Maghrib         18:44 PM (1044 UT) - the sunset prayer [I most often hear this one - Ron]
Isha'a             19:56 PM (1156 UT) - the night prayer

Hi Amano - Regarding my Sarawak FM audio: At 1000, heard 1+1 time pips and then a man said just two words 
(giving time?), but unable to make out what was said; then the station SA. The reception was fairly good,
as there was no adjacent interference. Several hours later I do have adjacent QRM (side interference), so

followed by a long interview. Was listening in LSB, so rather interesting to suddenly note the start of

*0559-0735 UT, RV best on 7890 (harmonic), with 11835 (harmonic) being much poorer, due to mixing
with CNR2 (BTW - On May 12, Wednesday, noted CNR2 here before 0600, but clearly off the air after
0600+). Mostly playing island songs, but here are a few points of interest:

0604-0619: Drama in Bislama.

0628: Weather/temperatures for the various provinces.

0659-0700: Promo for the upcoming May 17-18 "ICT Days" (Information and Communication Technologies),
being held at Unity Park, King's Town (website - https://ictdays.gov.vu/ ).

0700: Rare SA with frequencies (100 FM, 1125 MW, etc.); local time check ("6 o'clock") and into the news till 0713.

Hi Amano - Thank you very much for your updated information! Most helpful. 

Here is a list of the five Islamic call-to-prayer times for Kuching (Sarawak) for Wednesday, 26 May.

Fajr                   05:18 AM (2118 UT) - the dawn prayer
Dhuhr               12:40 PM (0440 UT) - early afternoon prayer
Asr                    16:03 PM (0803 UT) - late afternoon prayer
Maghrib             18:45 PM (1045 UT) - the sunset prayer [I most often hear this one - Ron]
Isha'a                 19:59 PM (1159 UT) - the night prayer
https://www.muslimpro.com/en/Prayer-times-Kuching-Malaysia-1735634 .

May 26 - Observed 9835 (Sarawak FM, not // to Wai FM 11665), from 0803-0806* UT. First time for me to
hear the Asr late afternoon prayer; transmitter cut off just after the prayer; had not returned to the
air by last check at 0845, while Wai FM (11665) continued on as normal. This is very similar to your
report from yesterday!

Today, I noticed Wai FM (11665) at 0835, with good audio during the news; at 0840, went back to having
the usual very poor audio; it sounded like an echo or out of sync audio. So the news audio comes from a
different source than all their other programming!

TAIWAN. 9774, Fu Hsing BS, with some recent monitoring:

May 17 (Monday) - No 9410; no 15375; heard 9774 with cut off at 0958* UT; on much later than usual.

May 25 (Tuesday) - No 9410; no 15375; with 9774 cutting off just after 0900.

May 26 (Wednesday) - No 9410, no 15375; with 9774 cut off at 0902*.

May 29 (Saturday) - No 9410; no 15375; with 9774 cut off at 0900*.

Have not heard 15375 since my decent reception on May 11. Clearly it is a rare frequency for them to use.
While 9410 has been non-stop silent for a long time now.

Hi Ron-san
Thank you always from California!

I heard your audio, "Jugan jonghab bodo gwangjang" and "Dodbogilo boneun sesang".
There is almost no North Korean jamming, and the sound is very clear.

VANUATU. 11835 (3rd harmonic), Radio Vanuatu, suddenly on at *0559 UT; continuing with island music;
as expected, with CNR2 QRM for less than a minute, till they went off the air after their time pips (0600*);
0601-0604, "News Update," today with items about parliament; 0609-0630, segment of songs in English

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, on June 5, noted cutting off close to 1300:45* UT.  

CHINA. 7270, PBS Nei Menggu, 1221 UT, June 5. Very strong signal on primary frequency; generating
very noticeable spurs on the low side 7262 (strongest spur!) // 7254 and the high side 7278 // 7286.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, 1302 UT, June 5. A day with some audio,
whereas usually they have no modulation; news in English, but unreadable; after the news surprised
to find they didn't play the usual “Bagimu Negeri” (For You Our Country), which is their most often
played song after the news, but instead heard the distinctive patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila" (aka:
"Mars Pancasila"), which was composed by Sudharnoto (who for a time worked at RRI Jakarta), with
lyrics about the loyalty of all Indonesian people to Pancasila as the only ideology or philosophy of
the Indonesian nation (studio quality recording at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBNIsIo8OLQ ).
My local sunrise was at 1249 UT. "Garuda Pancasila" was also heard at 1209, after the news in Japanese.

MYANMAR. Myanmar Radio, on June 5, with 9730 (KNLS QRM) cut off at 1150* UT; whereas 5985, had *1150.

NBC continues their long standing silence on both 3260 (NBC Madang) and 3325 (NBC Bougainville); checking
these almost daily. A sad situation for PNG to be silent for such a long time now! (June 5, from 1135+ UT)

U S A. 7230-LSB, K4DSR (Mobile, Alabama), from 0407+ UT, on June 5 (Saturday). Good reception of the Special
Events broadcast this weekend, from the code room of the battleship USS Alabama
( https://www.ussalabama.com/event/ships-across-america-2/ ); a part of the "Museum Ships Weekend"; using
the ships original antenna; most contacts were very readable; operated for a time by Ken and then later by a
different ham (Tim), so a non-stop event all weekend.  

7505, WRNO, 0333-0400* UT, June 5. Thanks very much to Dr. Hansjoerg Biener for the timely alert; first time I
have heard Hindi here; SA for 7-5-0-5 and contact info; preaching in English, with simultaneous translation into
Hindi. Didn't catch the name of the program.

VANUATU. 7260, Radio Vanuatu, 0505-0559* UT, on June 5. On 7890 // 11835 (both harmonics), at *0559; later
noted at 0701, with SA, frequencies and local time check ("6 o'clock") and then the "National News" in Bislama,
about parliament; played a lot of nice island songs, by 0730, faintly heard 3945, while 11835 had strong CNR2
QRM, so 7890 was the best frequency.

the theme of "international cooperation to resolve the abduction issue as a global issue". It will
be held. At this symposium, we will listen to the complaints of the "live voice" of victims' families
in Japan and other countries, and invite North Korean experts from each country to discuss ways
to resolve the abduction issue. I will do it. The symposium will be broadcast live on the United
Nations Web TV (English) and the official video channel of the YouTube Abduction Issue

super jamming also back on 6135 (nothing there to be jammed!); while VOF's ex: 5920 had no jamming,

TAIWAN[non-log], Fu Hsing BS, on June 24, with an anomaly today; random checking from 0745
till 0850 UT, only to note no signal at all on clear frequencies of 9410, 9774 and 15375. Whereas 9774
had been heard recently with consistent reception. Have found their one day a week, extra hour of
extended broadcasting (0900-1000*) varies a lot; have heard 1000*, instead of their normal 0900*,
on different Mondays and Thursdays, so seems rather a random schedule for the one hour extended

MALAYSIA. 9835, UNID relay, 1100-1245 UT, June 27.Thanks to Zacharias Liangas's non-log in WOR
iog, of June 26, at 1000, noting the absence of Sarawak FM, today I started to randomly check at
1040 UT, only to have the same results - no Malaysia; but at 1100, definite RTM signal, with the news;
unable to SA, due to moderate adjacent QRM, plus RTTY QRM and seemed to give very few SAs;
certainly the format heard today did not match that of Sarawak FM; the 1100 news was 5 minutes long,
which I believe is unlike Sarawak's 10 minute news and unlike Sarawak's 1+1 time pips at ToH, today
at 1100 and 1200, had 5+1 time pips; no news at 1200; from 1207 to 1210, with the Islamic Isha'a
call-to-prayer (night prayer).

So is 9835 starting about 1100? Has Sarawak FM been re-formatted (unlikely!) or is this another RTM
station being relayed here? Needs more monitoring and/or better conditions. BTW - Today's station was
not // 11665 (Wai FM, which continues to have poor audio).

VANUATU[and non-log]. Radio Vanuatu has been silent for three days through June 27.

June 27, checking Radio Vanuatu on 3945, 7890H and 11835H, from 1030+ UT (normally xmtr off at 1114);
but RV continues to be absent.

June 26, checking the usual Radio Vanuatu frequencies from 0545+ UT (last checked at 0655), but clearly
off the air.

June 25, checking the usual Radio Vanuatu frequencies from 0540 UT till 0800+, but was the first day RV
was off the air. Cuba (5040) running very late, due to a special segment about yesterday's UN vote by 184
countries in favour of a resolution to demand the end of the US economic blockade of Cuba (US and Israel
voting against it); ended audio at 0659, with the transmitter off at 0704.

June 24, the normal RV on 7260, cut off at 0559* UT and at *0559, switched to 3945, 7890 harmonic &

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1249-1300 UT, on June 30 (Wednesday).

Heard the identical English language lesson ("Say It In English") for the first time back on Aug 7, 2017 and
heard repeated again on Feb 5, 2018 and yet again on April 28, 2021. Is still fun to listen to the comical
misadventures of "Tom." Certainly one of the most entertaining language lessons on SW and infinitely
better than "Learning English with BBC, Burmese," that was formerly aired here.

April 28, 2021 - - - - -  MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1250-1301, April 28 (Wednesday)[2021]. Tuned in expecting
to hear the usual "Learning English with BBC, Burmese," but instead they were airing the "Say It In English"
program, which is also produced in England and was carried by MR years ago; mostly readable. Am very pleased
to hear this series of lessons back on the air again, as it is always a pleasure to hear the comical misadventures

There was a little North Korean jamming, but I heard the VOF on 5920 kHz so well that I was listening while sleeping at home.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(26) Ron Howard - Jul 13 (Tue), 2021 05:07 UTC No.4911
Hi Amano - Sorry for the delay in responding to you.

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+). Please see VOF log below.

Here are a few of my recent logs:

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, 1307-1310, July 11; after the news in English,
played the usual patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri” (For You Our Country); poor reception.

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, observed July 12 (Monday), with frequencies for this week:

3985 // 4890 (never jammed) // 5995 // 6255 // 6350 // 9105 (never jammed), at 1050 UT, with the EBS-FM
(Educational Broadcasting System - https://www.ebs.co.kr/main ) news in English and Korean; but more than
just the news, as they explain the meaning of some of the English words, so it's really the news and a
language lesson; with outdated news, as today's program was originally broadcast over EBS-FM back on
June 28 (item - UK ran a campaign called "grab a jab" to further drive up vaccination rates, etc.).
Later at 1127, heard the weekday English language lesson, whereas on the weekend they have a reading
in English of "Harry Potter and the Magician's Stone," along with an explanation in Korean, during
that same time period; VOH continues to have a four hour program loop.

Voice of the People, on July 12, again with no change of frequencies for this week; noted at 1055 UT;
3480 (never jammed) // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600.

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.

TAIWAN. 6230 // 6280, Sound of Hope, recently, through July 12, have heard these two frequencies as usual,
but 6215 is no longer on the air

9410 // 9774 // 15375, Fu Hsing BS, 0805-0901*, July 10 (Saturday); a very rare day with all three frequencies
being heard; this is their weekend schedule (weekdays with 1000*).

VANUATU. 3945 // 7890 (harmonic), Radio Vanuatu, 1101-1114 UT, on July 11; religious song; full SA with frequencies; National Anthem; then from 1104 to 1114 just open carrier (dead air) till xmtr off via a timer
(off at the same time every day).

Re: Vanuatu - July 13 Ron Howard - Jul 13 (Tue), 2021 09:23 UTC No.4912
July 13 - An enjoyable day of Radio Vanuatu reception; 7890 (harmonic) // 11835 (harmonic); 
suddenly on at *0559 UT, with song already in progress (The Doobie Brothers - "Listen to the
Music"); 0602-0605, "News Update" in Bislama; 0605-0659, DJ in Bislama playing C&W and pop
songs in English (The Police - "Every Breath You Take," Hank Williams - "Jambalaya -
On the Bayou," etc.); 0700-0719, news/sports in Bislama. Port Vila sunset was at 0626 UT;
moderate QRN (static). Only a carrier heard on 3945; CNR2 (11835) only produced low level
QRM today. Between 0630 and 0650, heard them play their distinctive station's singing jingle
four different times ("Radio Vanuatu" and "Voice of Papua New Guinea"). BTW - The 4th
harmonic on 15780 was not heard.

CHINA. 4900, Voice of Strait, 1123, July 14, found not // to 4940; both unusually good; new // schedule, 
different from past //'s; at 1130, both became //; 1155-1200, still //, with the Strait Fishery Meteorology
report (Channel fishery weather), with the weather forecast for the Strait, with info about wind, waves,
temperature, etc., sound of seagulls and a musical selection; after 1200, still //.

7345, The Voice of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (CNR7), 1200, July 14. Strong
signal; time pips and full SA with distinctive "F-M" references (FM 98.0  [Gau-sap-baat dim ling] for
Guangzhou; FM 101.2 [Yat-ling-yat dim yi] for Zhongshan City, covering Shenzhen and Hong Kong;
FM 105.4 [Yat-ling-ng dim sei] for Zhuhai City - covering Macau and FM 93.2 [Gau-sap-saam dim
yi] for Foshan.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, with weak audio on July 14:

1114: After the news in Chinese, played the patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila," aka: "Mars Pancasila" -
Pancasila March (The five principles of Pancasila, as set forth by then President Sukarno on June 1,
1945, are the underlying ideals of the country).

1209: After the news in Japanese, played the patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila."

1309: After the news in English, surprised to find they played a different patriotic song - “Bagimu Negeri”
(For You Our Country).

I suspect that for all of August, VOI will probably play the patriotic song “Dirgahayu Indonesiaku” after the
news, as they normally do during the month of their independence (Aug. 17).

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1247-1300, July 14 (Wednesday); unusually strong signal, but OTH
radar QRM; English language lesson "Say It In English," with the misadventures of "Tom" being sick and
"Kate" helping him get to the doctor's office; these lessons air on both Mon. & Wed.; first heard today's
show back on Wed, Sept 20, 2017 (that seven minute audio is at - http://bit.ly/2TaeCT4 ) and also heard
again on March 26, 2018 (Mon.).

TAIWAN. 6214.9 // 6230.0 // 6280.0, Sound of Hope, 1120, July 14; had noted 6215 being silent for over
a week and thought perhaps they had abandoned the frequency, but came back again today; clearly off
frequency. These frequencies are rarely jammed by CNR1 during my mornings.

9410 // 9774, Fu Hsing BS, 0826, July 15. Today only on two frequencies!

9410 // 9774 // 15375, Fu Hsing BS, 0801, on July 14; BBC had just signed off on 9410; very nice to find all
three frequencies active again. The same frequencies were noted on July 10 (Saturday) from 0805 to 0901*
(their weekend schedule, as opposed to weekdays 1000*).

VANUATU. 7890 (H), Radio Vanuatu and at times relay of Paradise FM 98, from 0705+, July 15. Station
was having some issues with their audio today; seemed normal till about 0750, when I suddenly realized
I briefly heard YL in Spanish, followed by a brief spot in English ("My family and I want to come back to
Vanuatu," etc.); wonder if these spots were about the upcoming Port Vila New Caledonia Regional Youth
Festival ( https://wotzonvanuatu.com/event/port-vila-new-caledonia-regional-youth-festival-teouma-valley/ );
after 0800, a number of times noted with two different audio feeds at the same time, creating a mess;
at 0803, fairly clear SA slogan - "Any where, any time, Paradise FM, simply the best." This is the first time
I have ever heard this situation!

7890 // 11835, both harmonics, Radio Vanuatu, 0600-0602, July 14 (Wednesday). News Update (Vanuatu's
"COVID-19 vaccine rollout," etc.); 0630-0634, the regular segment of "messages" in Bislama, which started
and ended with nice indigenous drum music. Wed. continues to be the only day that CNR2 (11835) closes
down at 0600*, leaving RV in the clear.

VIETNAM. 8812-USB, UNID, 1337 till cut off at 1400*, on July 14. Non-stop Vietnamese indigenous music/
singing/chanting; fairly good signal. Not sure who this is? Off with no announcement. My audio is posted
at http://bit.ly/3ehE0xw .

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.

PBS Yunnan - fairly decent on 6035, from 1330 to 1350.

CHBC (6185), this morning checked a number of times and heard with mostly fair reception (about the
best ever heard!); some Chinese opera.

INDONESIA. VOI, after the news in Japanese, at 1210, with patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila"; after the
news in English, at 1309, played the patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri”; VOI SA: "3-3-2-5 kilohertz."

JAPAN. Shiokaze, 5965 // 7295, with English on Wed.; both jammed.

KOREA SOUTH. VOH, at 1001, on 3990 (ham QRM) // 4885 // 6000 // 6250 // 6355 // 9100.

Voice of Freedom (5920), the daily NK jamming stopped at 1105*; don't know why they are here at this time;
is not against VOF, as jamming is also here when VOF is up on 6045.
 
MYANMAR - Today, from 1240 to 1249, with the well heard Wed. edition of "Say It In English"; a repeat of the
show I first heard back in 2017:

"MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, Oct. 9, 2017. The Monday edition of "Say It In English"; 1218-1231; this
weeks adventures (dialogue) of "Tom," has him driving along the "A3, near Guildford," when his car stops, so
he calls "Sparky's Garage" and turns out "Tom" had no "petrol." Fairly readable. I have gotten hooked on
his weekly antics. My audio posted at http://goo.gl/iE7Ehh ."

9730, Myanmar Radio, from 1054 to 1059, okay reception till totally killed by extremely strong KNLS start-up;
then clear again today from 1159 (KNLS went off) till past 1200 (MR running late today, but didn't stay around
for their cut off).

TAIWAN. 9410 // 9774 // 15375, Fu Hsing BS, heard with weekday schedule of 1000* (weekends with 0900*).

I had some fun summertime listening today (July 25). Tuning by 6035, at 1322 and what did I hear? 
Sammy Davis Jr. singing "Jingle Bells," then Bing Crosby with "Jingle Bells" & "White Christmas,"
Dean Martin - "Dream a Little Dream of Me," etc. Yes, a DJ in Chinese, from "Yunnan Radio International"
(assume the name has not been changed recently), playing songs all in English. Bizarre to hear Xmas songs
in July! Recently I have heard outstanding Asian reception.

Taiwan with 0900* (weekend schedule), on all three frequencies (9410 // 9774 // 15375).

Vanuatu (7890H) from 1025 till xmtr off at 1114, via a timer; Sunday religious songs, except for
preaching (1037-1052); then at 1110, full ID and NA.

Mexico and China still mixing at 1015, on 6185; with Mexico playing some cool jazz!
 
Myanmar, on 9730, clearly going off at 1202*, so they are definitely ex: 1130*.

Korea, with Echo of Hope - VOH (9100), with the weekend reading of "Harry Potter and the Magician's Stone,"
with chapter one (1125-1150); they recently finished reading the whole book and have now started to read it
all over again;

1143 - "And finally, bird-watchers everywhere have reported that the nation's owls have been behaving very
unusually today. Although owls normally hunt at night and are hardly ever seen in daylight, there have been
hundreds of sightings of these birds flying in every direction since sunrise. Experts are unable to explain
why the owls have suddenly changed their sleeping pattern." The newscaster allowed himself a grin. "Most
mysterious. And now, over to Jim McGuffin with the weather. Going to be any more showers of owls tonight,
Jim?" "Well, Ted," said the weatherman, "I don't know about that, but it's not only the owls that have been
acting oddly today. Viewers as far apart as Kent, Yorkshire, and Dundee have been phoning in to tell me that
instead of the rain I promised yesterday, they've had a downpour of shooting stars! Maybe people have been
celebrating Bonfire Night early, it's not until next week, folks!"  Nicely readable!!

Re: Bangladesh Betar - July 31 - anomaly with no CNR1 QRM on 4750 kHz. Ron Howard - Jul 31 (Sat), 2021 14:55 UTC No.4922

BANGLADESH. 4750.0, Bangladesh Betar (External Service), with major anomaly on July 31. CNR1, which
usually is well heard here, was off the air (CNR1, on 4800, was heard normally!); extremely rare for CNR1 to
be silent here; BB xmtr on at 1223 UT and immediately started their test tone; 1227-1230, distinctive IS; 1230,
time pips; 1231, start of news in English (not very readable); some nice selections of subcontinent music/singing;
a segment about the "Father of the Nation" (Sheikh Mujib) and Pakistan/Bangladesh history.

Would be wonderful if CNR1 stayed off the air on this frequency! Before 1223, did hear a very faint carrier (no audio)
on 4749.95, which must have been from the Voice of Indonesia, via Cimanggis/Jakarta (BTW - VOI on 3325, via
Palangkaraya, had a strong carrier today, but no audio at all).

for several minutes before the 1230 start of the English segment, which was very well heard, but that
only stayed on for a few minutes till it was cut off to change the antenna; later came back on, only
to have very poor reception/unusable. The antenna setting used for the Japanese segment works wonderfully 
for reception here on the coast. My 1230 UT audio clip is at http://bit.ly/3fveFAT .

It has been so long that VOV had been off frequency that I think I will miss that!

Desperate frequency where North Korean super jamming stays.

with a lengthy explanation in Korea. VOH recently finished reading the whole book and have now started

Today I listened to the VOH weekdays only program, English language lesson.

When I inspected the relationship between this song and Korean EBS on Google etc., I found the following YouTube video.

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).

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"?

At the beginning of the lesson, he says "English trainer" and gives his name ("Mayu"), then she says her name
("Mini"), then they both say in English, "Good morning everybody." I love listening to the woman, as she is so
animated about the lesson. Very entertaining!!

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, on Aug 19, from 0445+, checking for their normal 0500* UT, but SIBC was absent.

5020, SIBC, on Aug 23. Continuing with their erratic scheduling; 1200, "Evening Devotional," SA in English,
National Anthem; instead of the usual closing down for the day, immediately after NA, started non-stop pop
songs (some island songs and some in English); no announcements heard at all, so I believe this is not a
relay of Wantok FM; occasional periods of open carrier between songs (some breaks with dead air for over
five minutes!); heard past 1350+ UT, along with summertime QRN (static). On Aug 22, heard past 1410+.

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.

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!

After that, although there was occasional wood pecker noise, I could hear VOF clearly while enjoying the program.

"Dear Ron,

Thank you very much for your message!

During the last weekend, our institute had a planned power outage. We have restarted the transmission
since ~15:30 JST on Monday [Sept 6]; thus, I guess you are able to listen now. If you do not hear our morse,
please let me know.

You may know very well, but JG2XA had been operative since 2001 by Prof. Tomizawa at my institute, who
retired a few years ago. After his retirement, I took over his project and have continued operating the Tx station.
For the power being, the power of the transmission is ~60W for both the frequencies.

You may get some information about the project at the following web site:

If you have any questions, please let me know.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1241-1255 UT, Sept 8 (Wednesday). Is always a pleasure to hear the comical
misadventures of "Tom." I have heard this identical show a total of four times; today and on Aug 7, 2017,
plus Feb 5, 2018 and Apr 28, 2021. "Say It In English" will be on again Friday, with a different show.

In DXLD 17-32: "5985, Myanmar Radio, on Aug 7, 2017, tuned in at 1215, to hear the Monday edition of the
English language lesson ("Say It In English") already in progress; program will be repeated on Wed.; dialogue
between "Mr. Harris" and "Tom," who wants Tom to take the morning 7:00 train to Manchester; "The meeting is very important. Don't miss the train"; Tom works for a company that "makes some of the finest clocks and watches in
the world," but he is "never on time for anything"; he missed the train and then rushes to take a taxi to the
airport to catch the 8:00 plane to Manchester; 1227 end of "Say It In English"; fairly readable . . . "

Today (Sept 8) heard 9730, Myanmar Radio, with 1153*; had been // 5985.

BTW - CNR2 (6065 & 6155) on Sept 8, continues to be off the air (1210+).

KOREA SOUTH. 6350, Echo of Hope - VOH, Sept 13 (Monday), at 0725, the start of the weekday TV audio feed 
for the English language lesson ("Wang cho bo yeong-eo" - Beginner's English); produced by EBS English
(Educational Broadcasting System); intro theme song - "Party Will Come Alive" by Wizardz Of Oz (with Ruben
Martinez); in Korean and English; "Do you have a boyfriend?", etc.; lesson will be repeated again in four
hours. No other frequency was heard at this time.

Later at 0800 UT, heard all frequencies; the anomaly last Monday of not changing any frequencies did not
happen this Monday; all frequencies were changed for this week (3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 // 6350 // 9105 kHz.).

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, 1120-1130, Sept 10. CRI starts QRM here at *1200 and strong adjacent QRM at *1130,
from 5910 (CRI), but otherwise clear reception.

5985, Myanmar Radio, 1253-1305, Sept 10. Friday edition of "Say It In English"; first heard this identical show
back on Feb 19, 2018; dialogue at a "sales conference," "May I introduce myself?", "Let me introduce myself,"
"How do you do?", "Nice to meet you," "May I introduce Tom Carter?", "Pleased to meet you," "Please call me Tom,"
"All right Tom, we will," etc.; a different show than last Wednesday (Sept 8); these are the only two days I know
they are on the air.

Sept 15 (Wednesday), 1242-1255, another edition of "Say It In English"; "Tom" doesn't know Manchester very well
and gets lost, he has an important meeting at the Royal Hotel at 2:00, so he asks several people for directions;
fairly readable. First heard this identical show back on Sept 17, 2018.

9730, Myanmar Radio, 1132, Sept 10. Decent reception before the strong QRM on frequency from KNLS (Chinese) at
*1200, which goes off at 1159*; then MR in the clear for about a minute, until *1200 start of CRI (English) on
frequency; MR cut off at 1210*; MR noted // 5985; closing times for 9730 are not very consistent.

SOLOMON ISLANDS: Sept 15 - SIBC continuing with an erratic/unknown schedule.

9545 - Checking from 0408+ UT; not heard at all. Is this frequency currently active?

5020 - Checking randomly 1205 to past 1415 UT; no ID, but format consistent to be a Wantok FM relay; 99% non-stop
pop songs (LuLu - "To Sir, with Love," etc.) and only a few brief spots with announcers; well past their usual
closing time of about 1200. My local sunrise was at 1350 UT.

Re: Korea: Echo of Hope - VOH: anomaly with frequency changes on both Monday & Tuesday Ron Howard - Sep 22 (Wed), 2021 04:18 UTC No.4947
KOREA SOUTH. 9105 (same frequency as last week), Echo of Hope - VOH, Sept 20 (Monday), at 1535, 
the weekday TV audio feed for the English language lesson ("Wang cho bo yeong-eo" - Beginner's
English); in Korean and English; this conforms to their four hour program loop; these programs
can be heard at 0735 & 1135 & 1535 UT.

Earlier at 1430, VOH noted with interesting anomaly this week; instead of all frequencies changing
on Monday as usual, this week only three frequencies changed from last week (3990 [ex 3985] // 6000
[ex 5995] // 6355 [ex 6350]; while three remained the same as last week (4890 // 6255 // 9105).

But then the next day (Sept 21 - Tuesday), at 1440, the three unchanged frequencies had changed (4885
[ex 4890] // 6250 [ex 6255] // 9100 [ex 9105]). So VOH has divided up the changes between Monday and
Tuesday, something that has never happened before!

Voice of the People, as usual, remains the same for this week (3480 [still the best reception by far]
// 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600).

This may be of interest? A station back on SW again, after a long absence.

Sept 21 - On 7110 (Radio Ethiopia - Home Service), via long path, at 1500 UT, heard only one gong sounded 
(normally with three gongs rung) and then dead air for about a minute; 1501, audio back on with the news;
at 1512* seemed to go off the air(?), but checked from 1521+ and heard faint audio past 1533+.

Also being reported on the air 0400+ UT.

My Sept 17 audio has two minutes of Horn of Africa music and then another four minutes (gong rung three times

Re: Erratic North Korea jamming continues Ron Howard - Sep 28 (Tue), 2021 16:07 UTC No.4951
Sept 28 - Continuing with erratic jamming from North Korea!

Echo of Hope - VOH with the usual NK jamming on 3985 // 6245 // 6350, while as usual 4880 // 9095
were free from any jamming, and the surprise was 5995 had good reception with no jamming at all
(rare!); at 1126, start of the English language lesson ("Wang cho bo yeong-eo" - Beginner's English);
produced by EBS English (Educational Broadcasting System); intro theme song in English ("Party Will
Come Alive" by Wizardz Of Oz, with Ruben Martinez); in Korean and English; "I am leaving now," "Mommy,
mother," "I am leaving at five," etc.). Here is a YouTube sample of the TV show -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFmVpXnGiaA .

Voice of the People - From 1002+, found 3480 off the air for the second day in a row (What happened to it?);
all the other frequencies were normal and jammed.

On 6045, the NK super jamming was again silent today. Voice of Freedom (5920) jamming went off about 1108 UT,
leaving VOF with good reception.

KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on 6015, continues to be free of the usual strong white noise jamming from NK; at
1220, in progress with the audio feed from the TV KBS news at 9 (1200 UT = 9:00 PM KST), after each news item
SA given - "K-B-S News"; program is daily posted to YouTube
(from yesterday - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjJZpGKr2eA ). Wonderful to hear this without the normally,
always strong white noise jamming! There is some QRM from a much weaker station, which I think is probably
PBS Xinjiang.

Is this erratic behavior by North Korea due to recent announcements?

Part of a New York Times story - Sept. 25 - https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/25/world/asia/korea-summit.html :

"SEOUL — North Korea would consider holding a summit meeting with South Korea and declaring an official end
to the Korean War if the South can restore trust with it, the North’s official news agency reported on Saturday,
citing the sister of its leader, Kim Jong-un."

The VOF sounded very good.
I heard some North Korean jamming against VOF, but it was weak.

Echo of Hope - VOH, on Sat., Oct 16, noted the normal weekend only reading of a Harry Potter story,
on 3985 // 5995 // 6350, at 0723 UT.

Observed on Monday, Oct 18

VOH, on new frequencies of 3990 // 6000 // 6355; checking for the usual 0723-0752, EBS TV audio feed
for the English language lesson ("Wang cho bo yeong-eo" - Beginner's English), which is always aired
on weekdays, but today surprised to find instead only non-stop EZL pop songs (Whitney Houston - "I
Will Always Love You," Carpenters - "Close To You," Celine Dion - "My Heart Will Go On,"  Bee Gees -
"How Deep Is Your Love," etc.). This is the first time I have heard this format. Perhaps the TV audio
feed was not available today, so they played filler music? Later at 0846, I heard the usual EBS news
headlines in English.

Echo of Hope - VOH: this week's frequencies: 3990 // 4890 (no change!) // 6000 (this week no longer
QRMing Mali) // 6250 // 6355 // 9100, at 0903.

Voice of the People: only three frequencies heard at 0910, not the usual six: 3910 // 4450 // 6520;
no trace of 3480 (recently has been off the air!), 3930, nor 6600.

Echo of Hope - VOH (희망의메아리): On 9100 kHz., from 0440 to 0453 UT, on Oct 19. The EBS's (Educational
Broadcasting System) produced English "Morning Headlines" program, which is also a language lesson; with
a new and different format today; in the past was always Sue Choi in English, followed by a lot of
explanations in Korean regarding the news items; today still with Sue, but with a young man chatting in
English about the news items and explaining things in English (not in Korean); today's news headlines
were originally broadcast via EBS FM on Oct 5; a transcript of today's program is at http://bit.ly/3pjISsi .

Info found online and with the excellent assistance of pasar malam (via "Now On The Radio" Website):

Sae Nala Bangsong (New Country Broadcasting), is a religious radio station presented by Sons and Daughters Company,
of South Korea. The CEO and founder is Matthew Bahng. The company creates and delivers hopeful messages packed with
new sounds to attract all demographics of North Koreans. They know for a fact that their programs are already making
an impact in people's lives in North Korea and this is one project that will continue and will not stop until they
become one as a nation. Sons & Daughters Company aims to arouse the interest of North Koreans and people around the
world by delivering messages through creative and modern content. Little by little, they are seeing results. They are
confident that this project will have a positive impact on youth in North Korea and around the world. Intro video in

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(25) :: Korea Ron Howard - Jul 14 (Tue), 2020 00:53 UTC No.4627
KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. July 13 (Monday) observed frequencies:

VOP: 3475 // 3905 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1023; no change this week

VOH: 3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 (a terrible frequency to switch to, as there is
now a daily strong CNR1 signal here, so a big mess!) // 6350 // 9105, at 1018.
All frequencies changed this week.

KCBS (N. Korea) on 3250 // 3959, at 1029; when still silent on 2850 and 3205. Of
interest to note the following from Japan, about 3205:
http://drm.mediacat-blog.jp/e139694.html

Translation: "On July 13, a DRM signal came out at North Korea's 3205 kHz, which
sometimes emitted radio waves. Labeling is the same BBEF as before. It was also output
at 3560kHz in December last year. In the 0700s, the signal level was still low, the bit rate
was a little high, and the voice could not be demodulated. The ID number is the same as
before. The time display is local time. It stopped at 0912."

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(25) :: Vanuatu Ron Howard - Jul 15 (Wed), 2020 09:44 UTC No.4630
VANUATU. 11835 (third harmonic of 3945 kHz.), Radio Vanuatu, on July 15, with an excellent
marathon listening session; 0230-0605 UT. As we get closer to their Independence Day (July 30),
I'm hearing more and more brief spots about independence; my favorite one is with the choral NA
("Yumi, Yumi, Yumi") and national slogans (my audio at http://bit.ly/38Z0i3k ).

0230-0330: Hour in French.

0330-0430: Hour in English; pop songs; interview about a music concert held to raise money, which
tomorrow is going to be turned over to the Red Cross; 0357-0401, early with the news and sports;
0403-0430, "Pacific Beat" (ABC RA program).

0430+: Mostly in Bislama; 0500-0503, news/sports summary; followed by weather report and nice
island song mentioning "Vanuatu" (my audio at http://bit.ly/2WmZHDr , with one minute of weather
report and three of "Vanuatu" song); 0515, program "Inside Sports," starting in English with item
about the upcoming rugby matches to be held at Port Vila Stadium (my audio at http://bit.ly/2Zx29JH ,
which is fairly readable).

Re: Bangladesh Betar with Home Service on 4750 kHz. Ron Howard - Jul 16 (Thu), 2020 15:29 UTC No.4633
BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - Home Service, from 1241-1341, on July 16. 
Ramadan has been over for quite a while now, but BB has not returned to their
External Service, but instead has continued with their Home Service; in Bangla,
with the usual subcontinent music/singing; 1300-1306, news. My local sunrise was
at 1302 UT, while the Dhaka sunset was at 1247 UT, making for nice greyline
reception. Today heard with a most unusual reception - CNR1 clearly off the air;
normally China dominates 4750, with BB having to struggle to be heard underneath,
but today only BB heard; also no VOI heard here. A rare situation!

The following are comments made by Martyn Williams, an expert on matters 
pertaining to Korea:

"How very interesting. Sounds like a British female and American male discussing
the news with a Korean female translating.

I wonder if the English segments or the entire show is taken from another source?
Perhaps TBS eFM in Seoul? It seems a stretch to think the Korean intelligence
service went to all this effort.

It would be good to listen again and see if there is any program name or they introduce
themselves by name. More monitoring!"

Re: CNR17 (China) & VOH (Korea) with language lessons Ron Howard - Jul 19 (Sun), 2020 02:21 UTC No.4640
CHINA. 9630 // 11630, CNR17, on July 18 (Saturday), from 1229 to 1259. The weekend schedule for 
their half hour language lesson; unlike the English lesson last Sat., today it was in Russian.
Starts with usual multi-language intro ("Hi, Hello, Nǐ hǎo [Chinese for "Hello"], How are you?,"
etc.); the lesson today seemed to just be repeating Russian words; unlike last week, today the
whistling/humming was not so strong and was indeedjust in the background. My local sunrise was
at 1303 UT. My audio is at http://bit.ly/3jku7Af . Both frequencies were fair.  

CNR17, which officially started on Jan. 1, 2015, was formerly known as "Kazakh Radio." It now
broadcasts to the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) in northwest China, from a transmitter
site located in Lingshi County (a county level division under the jurisdiction of Jinzhong 
Municipality), in Shanxi Province, China.
     
KOREA SOUTH. 9105, Echo of Hope - VOH, on July 18 (Saturday):

At 1138, an English language lesson was already in progress; scheduled for 1130-1200. I find these
programs rather entertaining, as the Korean woman announcer often gets comically excited and has a
unique accent. My audio is at http://bit.ly/2ZHbjDx .

Also today from 0935 to 0952, VOH with another edition of "Touch! Global Headlines," in English and
Korean; program ID is given at the start of the news; good reception as usual. I find the news items
to be fairly detailed and mostly interesting, My audio is at http://bit.ly/3fISkhd . Thanks very much
to Amano for providing the name of the news program!

Re: Language lessons - please note new program via VOH (Korea) Ron Howard - Jul 26 (Sun), 2020 16:47 UTC No.4644
CHINA. 9630 // 11630, CNR17, on July 26 (Sunday), at 1233. The weekend schedule for
their half hour language lesson; started with usual multi-language intro ("Hi, Hello, Nǐ hǎo
[Chinese for "Hello"], How are you?," etc.); Russian lesson with repeating of words; as
usual the whistling/humming was again present in the background. Today, 11630 was
the better frequency.
     
KOREA SOUTH. 9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, on July 26 (Sunday):

Heard at 1146, during a time when they normally have a half hour English language lesson
(1130-1200); I tuned in to hear a completely new and different language lesson in English
already in progress; reading from "Harry Potter and the Magician's Stone" (chapter one)
and with Korean.

My audio is at http://bit.ly/3g8BJ6Y , for 1151 reception:  

"And finally, bird-watchers everywhere have reported that the nation's owls have been behaving
very unusually today. Although owls normally hunt at night and are hardly ever seen in daylight,
there have been hundreds of sightings of these birds flying in every direction since sunrise. Experts
are unable to explain why the owls have suddenly changed their sleeping pattern." The newscaster
allowed himself a grin. "Most mysterious. And now, over to Jim McGuffin with the weather. Going to
be any more showers of owls tonight, Jim?" "Well, Ted," said the weatherman, "I don't know about
that, but it's not only the owls that have been acting oddly today. Viewers as far apart as Kent,
Yorkshire, and Dundee have been phoning in to tell me that instead of the rain I promised yesterday,
they've had a downpour of shooting stars! Maybe people have been celebrating Bonfire Night early,
it's not until next week, folks!"  

Needs more monitoring to try to catch the beginning of these lessons, to perhaps hear a program name?

BTW - July 26 (Sunday), from 1331 to 1351, heard 9100 with the news program called "Touch! Global
Headlines," in English and Korean; good reception; as it was the weekend, the program was a repeat
of a show aired earlier last week. My audio is at http://bit.ly/2WYFwfp .

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1250-1300, on July 24 (Friday). Time for another two 5 minute
editions of "Learning English with BBC, Burmese," which are aired Wed. & Fri. during this time period;
first show presented by Tom and Tim, while second show was with Tom and Rob; saying "to much
social media has a negative effect on health," etc.; both programs were fairly readable.

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. July 27 (Monday) observed frequencies:

VOP: 3480 (best reception here) // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1115.

VOH: 3985 // 4880 // 5995 // 6245 // // 6350 // 9095, at 1128, with the usual English language
lesson, mostly in Korean (not the new program heard yesterday [Sunday] of the Harry Potter
story being read, so that must only be on during the weekend from about 1130 to 1200?)

Voice of Freedom, on 6045 kHz., completely blocked by super strong white noise jamming from
N. Korea, at 1123, BUT on

July 28 (Tuesday) - A major change happened today; strong jamming moved away from 6045 (why?),
leaving VOF in the clear (very good news!), but now that jamming has returned to former 6135, which
today killed any chance for reception of Madagascar, which I had recently been enjoying. VOF (6045)
noted from 1213 to 1234, in Korean with a nice program about the Beach Boys and played many of their
songs ("Surfin' USA," "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "Good Vibrations," "Kokomo" and "God Only Knows"). My
audio (edited out most of the music) is at http://bit.ly/2CYjXF1 .

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - Home Service, 1300-1305, on Aug 1. News in Bangla; 
another strange day with no CNR1, nor VOI QRM. My local sunrise was at 1314 UT and Dhaka 
sunset was at 1240 UT, making for decent greyline reception. Wonder whatever happened to
their External Service SW transmitters that were formerly on 7250, 9455, 15105, etc.?
 
CHINA. 9630 // 11630, CNR17, on Aug 1 (Saturday), at 1233. The weekend schedule for their
half hour language lesson; started with usual multi-language intro ("Hi, Hello, Nǐ hǎo
[Chinese for "Hello"], How are you?," etc.); lesson in Russian with repeating of words;
as usual the whistling/humming was again present in the background; almost fair reception.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6040, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze at 1324, on Aug 1, with the usual sound of an 
emergency siren. Strong pulsating pips jamming already here; // 6165, where it was stronger
than CNR6 also on frequency, but N. Korea jamming was very faint here; scheduled 1300-1400.

Per Hiroshi, the change of frequencies happened July 30. He also noted Shiokaze:

1405-1435 on 6090 // 7325
1600-1700 on 5920 // 5980.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, at 1114, on Aug 1. Continues to have fair reception,
with no jamming. Super jamming continues to remain up on ex: 6045.

9095, Echo of Hope - VOH, on Aug 1 (Saturday), from 1125 to 1155. Weekend schedule with another
installment of reading in English from "Harry Potter and the Magician's Stone," still in chapter
one, along with being in Korean. Later, at 1334, with "Touch! Global Headlines," in English and
Korean. Good reception. 

MADAGASCAR. 6135, Radio Madagasikara, 1338, on Aug 1. Back on July 29 (1309-1338) first noted 
this station with transmitter problems, as was still being heard here today; transmitter on
for several minutes then off for a minute or two, then back on again (over and over again);
via long path with decent reception around my local sunrise. The N. Korea super jamming that
was heard here on July 28 was just a one day only anomaly, before returning to 6045 on July 29.  

VANUATU. 3945, Radio Vanuatu, 1104-1105, on Aug 1. National Anthem, followed by dead air (open
carrier); 1109, start of non-stop pop songs (Shania Twain - "From This Moment On," etc.); ham QRM.

Why ask professional questions here ???
This is a note to DXers looking at this article, not to Mauno.
I can't understand Korean so I just left a hint. I also wrote down a URL of the wiki,
because I thought I was probably talking about World War II because it contained the word "Russia".

Is this something to do with "DX" ?

You should ask a specialized site that has a DXer that understands Korean.
I am busy and should not ask questions that waste my time :DD

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(25) :: XYZ - Aug 02 (Sun), 2020 22:52 UTC No.4663
Thanks Mauno.

There were many Korean DXers before, but the espionage law was enforced in Korea, and many DXers were
suppressed and left. My Korean DX friends were also treated badly, such as being treated as spy by
the Korean government. It seems that the South Korean government came to investigate, so the articles
they wrote erased almost everything.
I hope that the Korean government system will change and become a free country as soon as possible.
And I want many Korean DXers to come back...

BTW, I was providing information to WRTH about 40 years ago. I don't buy it since the 2011 edition
because I can't see much of it. In the 2011 version, some of the SA (station announcement) Romanize
I provided was used, but it was incorrect because of repeated transcription and transcription.
I can't even see it because I can't see it now, but if you still use that information, please fix it.

Now, I can't help because I'm an old man with poor eyesight, poor hearing, and memory problems :DD

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(25) :: Bangladesh Betar Ron Howard - Aug 05 (Wed), 2020 14:20 UTC No.4666
BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - External Service (formerly carried their 
Home Service); on Aug 5, noted the following:

1205 UT - Only CNR1 and assume a very faint Voice of Indonesia underneath (unusable).
1224 - Start of BB test tone.
1229 - BB IS.
1230 - Start of the BB External Service - with brief subcontinent music; unable to confirm in English,
as there were THREE stations present (BB, CNR1 and assume a faint VOI); all of which produced a
real mess here. Will take a better day than today to confirm the language.

Thanks very much for the timely alert from Prof. Dr. Hansjoerg Biener (Germany), that the External
Service was active again. His observations are that the audio is still distorted, as the External Service
was in the past.

Aug 13 (Thursday)

China still with Voice of Strait being // at 1242, on both 4900 // 4940 kHz. So the anomaly continues
throughout August? Normally 1200+ should not be //.

CNR17 (9630 // 11630), heard on a weekday from 1518 to 1529, with a Russian language lesson.

Korea, on 9105 kHz., with Echo of Hope - VOH, from first noted at 1237 all the way through last check
at 1510, without any audio at all, just a strong open carrier being heard during random checking; all the
other VOH frequencies noted with normal audio (3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 // 6350).

Shiokaze (6040 // 6165 [CNR6 QRM]) this Thursday didn't have English as usual, but was in Japanese;
both frequencies jammed.

Radio Vanuatu (3945) still being heard at 1348 & 1402, with the song "You Are The Only One" sung at both
times. Seems RV is only being heard on 3945 and their harmonics.

KOREA SOUTH. Aug 17 (Monday) observed frequencies; for detailed frequencies, please see
Wolfie's posting at WOR iog, under "Korea - VOH with more language lessons?" on Aug 18.

VOP: 3480 // 3915 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1400 UT.

VOH: 3990 // 4885 // 6000 // 6250 (mixing with N. Korea's Echo of Unification, which was // 5905)
// 6355 // 9100, at 1344 UT; in progress with the news in English and Korean ("Touch! Global Headlines" -
today's EBS's [Educational Broadcasting System] news items shown at - http://bit.ly/3kUvOFh and
were originally broadcast on Aug 3).
 
Voice of Freedom, 5920, at 1356 UT, in the clear with fair to good reception; super jamming still up on 6045.

Aug 18. On 9100, a first for me to hear Echo of Hope - VOH, with 0500* UT, going off after the instrumental
version of "The Sound of Silence."

SWAZILAND. 6025, TWR Africa, 1457 UT, Aug 17. Religious program in English; 1501, T.W.R. ID and into
vernacular; weak, via long path.  

TIBET. 6130, Xizang PBS via Lhasa, 1342 UT, Aug 17. Another day with nice clear reception; again // 6200.
Laos certainly seems off the air here; if they were broadcasting, I'm sure I would have some trace of
another station here, but it is only Tibet.  

VANUATU. 11835 (third harmonic), Radio Vanuatu, 0233-0533 UT, Aug 18. Highlights:

0233-0328: The French hour; mostly very nice pop French songs and ballads; mostly poor reception
this early.

0328-0431: The English Hour; starts with local Vanuatu weather; goes into segment from "Pacific Beat"
(ABC RA); interesting item:

"A Chinese ambassador causes a stir for walking on the backs of people who are welcoming him to his
new job in their country [Kiribati] - but for the locals it is a sign of respect." [Picture and story at "Pacific
Beat" - http://bit.ly/2E3ShPA ]

Pop songs; 0422, RV local segment "In The Studio," with phoned in interview with one of the students
returning to Vanuatu from Samoa, who is currently in the process of undergoing 14 days of quarantine
and he tells of his experience under quarantine. The English Hour is mostly readable and I find it very
entertaining and informative.

0431+: Programming all in Bislama; many calls from the various provinces to report about last month's
Independence Day celebrations; many words in English, so easy to follow the general content. Good
number of "Radio Vanuatu, Vois Blong Yumi" SAs.

make out bits and pieces; tuned into filler instrumental music; 1300-1400, in English; news; promo for
Indonesia's Independence (their Independence Day was on the 17th); "Today in History" item seemed to
be about the Japanese in Indonesia publicly surrendered on August 22, 1945, etc.; musical selections;

Re: China - Voice of Strait ends their English program "Focus On China" Ron Howard - Aug 29 (Sat), 2020 19:44 UTC No.4699

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait. It was back in 2005 that I first started to enjoy the weekend
programs in English of "Focus On China" that were aired by VOS; over the years, have
always found them to be very entertaining. On Aug 29 (Saturday), I found the second
weekend in a row with no "Focus On China." Normally there would be two shows on
Saturday and Sunday (*0940-0955 and 1430-1455 UT). Thought perhaps there was a
change in scheduling, but not so. Went to the VOS website for their program schedule
( http://www.vos.com.cn/about/program.shtml ) and saw that the programs had clearly
been dropped.

I will certainly miss hearing these shows, as they were the only chance to hear English IDs -
"Focus on China, in Voice of Strait Broadcasting Station . . . Fresh, dynamic, professional,
profound, explore Chinese culture . . . You are now listening to Focus on China." Here is one
of their typical programs I recorded back in Nov 2014 - https://app.box.com/s/1w3yr6o8gx8ks7tq23qc .
Back then they IDed as “This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio” and ended the program
by giving their local address.

This may be due to their program changes on August 1.
According to Chinese information site https://cahcn.github.io/ , Voice of Straight
changed their programs and frequencies on August 1. They now broadcast 3 programs
instead of former 5 programs. The program contents were also changed.

News Program   666kHz 4940kHz 90.6MHz(Fuchou)

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, 1110-1132* UT, Sept 2. Announcers and some pop songs; by 1130, 
was able to confirm was in English, but only a word or two made out; very poor, with slowly
improving signal; their usual format. PBS Yunnan relay of FM99 doesn't start here till later,
so no QRM.  

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1132-1220 UT, Sept 2. Pop songs; 1202-1207,
news in English (not very readable); during this time, no VOI QRM, but 1300+ both were
mixing together to produce a mess (both unusable).

KOREA SOUTH. This week's changes noted Sept 2 - Wed. (didn't check on Mon or Tue):

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3980 (thanks to Lucio Otavio Bobrowiec, who has already reported this
in WOR iog!) // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 (mixing with N. Korea's Echo of Unification, which was //
5905) // 6348 // 9100 (extremely weak; normally very strong), at 1229 UT, with historical
dramatization in English about the Civil War and Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation; as usual
had fair to good reception on 4885 (my audio is at http://bit.ly/3hVPAhQ ).

Voice of the People: 3475 (good reception) // 3905 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1221 UT.

Voice of Freedom: 5920, at 1337 UT, mixing very badly with Shiokaze (yes, their first day back
here and yet another terrible frequency assignment; ex 6040 [N. Korea still jamming there] and
also heard Shiokaze // 6070, fair with no jamming yet; ex 6165). Super jamming still up on former
OF frequency of 6045.

MADAGASCAR. 6135, Radio Madagasikara, 1400+ UT, Sept 2. Another day with decent reception
for their late afternoon transmission; whereas their morning broadcast (0430+ UT) is only on the air
erratically and seems to be off the air more than they are on during that time period.

Re: Voice of Indonesia Ron Howard - Sep 13 (Sun), 2020 16:43 UTC No.4703
INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, 1102+, Sept 13. An unusual day here,
as NBC Bougainville was off the air and VOI actually had audio at a very respectable level; tuned
in to hear Chinese; Japanese was after 1200+; English segment was 1300-1400; news (ex-PMs
Tony Blair and John Major item about Brexit; Russian elections being held now; etc.); ended the
news with the distinctive patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila" (aka: "Mars Pancasila"), which was
composed by Sudharnoto (who for a time worked at RRI Jakarta), with lyrics about the loyalty of all
Indonesian people to Pancasila as the only ideology or philosophy of the Indonesian nation (studio
quality recording at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBNIsIo8OLQ ). It was last Sept. that I last
heard VOI play this song, so was a special treat today; "Spotlight," with item about Jakarta enforcing
steps to prevent COVID-19; "Today in History" (Sept 13, 2007 - UN Declaration on the Rights of
Indigenous Peoples; Sept 13, 2008 - series of bombings in New Delhi; etc.); "Indonesia Today,"
about "National Sports Day"; segments "Indonesian Wonders" & "Music Corner"; multi-language PSA
("Together we can beat the coronavirus"); 1400 - my audio of the intro into Bahasa Indonesia is at
http://bit.ly/3imYoxg . By 1400, the reception was mostly fair.

An unusual day also on // 4749.95, via Cimanggis/Jakarta, as I was able to hear this frequency the
whole time due to there only being light CNR1 (China) QRM and today Bangladesh was clearly off
the air (1229+), making for a very rare day with both frequencies doing well. A most enjoyable reception,
but why can they not broadcast like this every day on 3325?

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, on Sept 14, at 1410. For the 
second consecutive day, heard with audio at a listenable level, which is very unusual for
VOI, which normally has very low audio; at the end of the news in Bahasa Indonesia,
played the patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila" (aka: "Mars Pancasila"). Can we expect
a third day with more enjoyable audio? While // 4749.95, via Cimanggis/Jakarta, was not
heard as well today as yesterday, due to the return of Bangladesh, along with the normal
CNR1 QRM.  

KOREA SOUTH. Frequencies for this week; observed Monday (Sept 14):

VOP: 3480 // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1341.

VOH: 3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6250 (whereas 6255 continues to be strongly jammed by CNR1,
against an assumed UNID station) // 6350 // 9100, at 1345, with "Touch! Global Headlines," in
English and Korean.

Voice of Freedom, 5920, at 1354, continues to have strong QRM from Shiokaze (13-14); while
the N. Korea white noise super jamming is still up on ex 6045.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1309-1319, Sept 11 (Friday). Time for another two 5 minute
editions of "Learning English with BBC, Burmese"; today with repeat shows that I heard a long
time ago; about hypnotism helping to quit smoking and overcome fear of flying.

VANUATU. 11835 (third harmonic), Sept 14 (Monday), with random checking from 0334 to last
check at 0534, found RV off the air; only CNR2 heard.

Sept 11, on 11835, RV, 0311-0330, heard a portion of their French Hour (0230-0330); 0330-0438,
in English; pop songs and "Inside the Studio" interview; 0404-0412, news (Vanuatu deputy speakers
of Parliament ask for pay raise; heavy rains cause landslides on a Vanuatu island; etc.); Vanuatu
weather; 0414-0438, "Pacific Beat," a ABC RA program (yesterday the Australian government
approved a supplemental budget for a loan to PNG, as the result of COVID-19 weakening the PNG
economy, etc.).

Sept 11, on 3945, RV, 1034-1104*; Elton John - "Sacrifice"; religious sermon in English and religious
music; went off with no ID nor NA. Since Aug 25, they no longer have any extended broadcasts past
1104+, with non-stop songs, as they did in the past.

VIETNAM. 6020, Voice of Vietnam, program 4 (ethnic minority languages service), 1455-1510, Sept 14.
Via Buon Ma Thuot, the capital city of Dac Lac Province; indigenous music/singing. Dac Lac province is
located in the Central Highlands and has many indigenous people there who are not ethnically Vietnamese.
VOV4 website (Google translation) http://goo.gl/j9p6e4 , where under "National Music" they have audio of

Komatsubara Hiroyuki - Wish you a speedy recovery! Take care and get well soon. Warm regards, Ron     

Tomorrow (Sept 16), is celebrated as "Malaysia Day" (commemorating the establishment of the Malaysian
federation on the same date in 1963). So in anticipation of that, I was checking today (Sept 15) to hear how
reception was from Sarawak FM (9835 kHz.). Broadcasting not from Sarawak, but via Kajang, on the west
coast of the Malaysia peninsular, about 12 miles southeast of downtown Kuala Lumpur. Pleased to find fairly
good reception. My local sunrise was at 1350 UT.

1300-1400* UT, in vernacular; 1300-1312, RTM news; DJ playing pop songs; several times heard their station
slogan in English - "This station is now the ultimate power in the universe"; went off the air at the end of a
song with no announcements. My audio is at http://bit.ly/3kilVjx .  

Any chance that 5965 (Radio Klasik, formerly Klasik Nasional), 6050 (Asyik FM) or 7295 (Traxx FM) will return
to the air for a special broadcast on Malaysia Day tomorrow? I rather doubt it!

For over a month, the strong N. Korea white noise super jamming had been silent on 6135. Which afforded
me the wonderful opportunity to enjoy very decent Radio Madagasikara reception. BUT on Sept 15 & 16
heard strong jamming again on 6135, blocking any hope I had of RM reception. There is no known station
on this frequency to be jammed, so it continues to be a mystery to me as to why N. Korea likes this frequency
so much, even without any apparent target to jam.

Voice of Freedom, which might have been a target for 6135 jamming, is down on 5920, currently free of any
jamming and the former VOF frequency of 6045 is still being strongly jammed, even without VOF being there.
So it's difficult for me to figure out what their rationale is for the 6135 jamming?

So my Sept 13 reception of RM might be my last one for a while!

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, (Maus Blong Garamut - Voice of Indigenous Drums),
1132-1202 UT, on Oct 7. Back on the air again after a considerable absence; poor audio; over
modulated, rendering it unreadable; signed off with new format (1201-1202); indigenous drums
and chanting, along with full SA, which was mostly unreadable; dead air till transmitter went off at

Oct 14 (Wednesday) - Voice of Freedom has indeed moved back to their alternate frequency
of 5920, which is currently free of jamming.Fortunately the super jamming from N. Korea is
still up on ex: 6045.

Programs well heard today, a weekday. The weekend schedule I believe is different.

1300 - "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is Power), with the theme song of the pop hit song
“See Ya,“ by Atomic Kitten. My audio is at http://bit.ly/374KX25 .

(Bertie Higgins - "Key Largo," Sam Cooke - "Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow," U.S.A. For Africa -
"We Are the World," etc.) 1000-1006 & 1100-1106, with news, but only bits and pieces made
out; good number of ads (office supplies, etc.).

BOUGAINVILLE/PNG[non-log]. On Oct 19, from 1036+, found NBC Madang (3260) and NBC
Bougainiville (3325) both continuing to be silent. My Oct 7 reception of NBC Madang turned out
to be a one day only event.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, at 1110+, on Oct 19, heard strong
carrier, but no audio today.  

KOREA SOUTH. Frequencies for this week; observed Monday, Oct 19:

VOP: 3480 (best frequency) // 3915 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1125.

VOH: 3990 // 4885 // 6000 (strong QRM) // 6250 // 6355 // 9100, at 1140, with English language lesson.

Voice of Freedom, 5920, at 1130, with good reception (no jamming); the super jamming, white noise,
N. Korea jamming that had been on 6045 has now moved up to 6135, hence killing any chance of
my recently heard good reception of R. Madagasikara.

TAIWAN. 9276, StarStar Broadcasting Station (XingXing BS), V13, on Oct 19, at 1214. Had to listen in
USB, due to strong 9275 QRM; numbers in Chinese.  

VANUATU. 11835 (third harmonic), 0600, Oct 20. "Radio Vanuatu, 5 o'clock" (about an hour before their
sunset: 0648 UT); the usual indigenous drums and horns that starts and ends every news broadcast;
"News Update" in Bislama; news, sports and weather; fair, but earlier the English hour (0330-0430) had
very poor reception today (unusable).

VIETNAM. 8812-USB, Ho Chi Minh Radio - Vietnam Coast Station (VISHIPEL), *1239-1242*, on Oct 19.
Starts with series of tones; then in English - "Weather information for South China coastal waters issued
by the Hong Kong Observatory, at 7:30 PM, October 19," etc.

0331-0435: English Hour with RV's "Inside the Studio" program, with pop songs and

0600+: "News Update" in Bislama; news, sports and weather; pop song (Smokie -

Thank you very much, Amano. Appreciate your help! Ron

Oct 23 - Checking R. Vanuatu on 3945, randomly from 1136 till 1336, found they played the
Black Brothers song about once every 10 minutes! Playing non-stop music.

Also interesting to note Radio 4KZ (5055) today (Oct 23); 1000 till off shortly after the end of
the news at 1206. Would be nice if they continue with this extended schedule. Today some
news items were readable (Melbourne police have arrested 16 anti-lockdown protesters and
handed out 61 fines, etc.) and sports (Melbourne's Storm will play Penrith's Panthers in the
2020 NRL Grand Final this Sunday, etc.); of course many pop songs (Air Supply - "Even The
Nights Are Better," The Chordettes - "Mr. Sandman," Bobby Vinton - "Sealed With a Kiss,"
Tony Orlando and Dawn - "Tie a Yellow Ribbon," etc.).

Both NBC stations (Bougainville - 3325 and Madang - 3260) continue to be silent, from 1129+,
on Oct 23.

Oct 23 - Terrible news for me was finding BOTH 6045 and 6135 with N. Korea super jamming.
In the past they just had one transmitter they put on one or the other frequency. As far as I know,
there is nothing to jam on 6045 or 6135. Looks as if they plan to stay on both frequencies for a
long time, hence ending my nice Madagascar reception on 6135. Voice of Freedom is in the clear
on 5920.

Oct 23 - Noted 6060 (PBS-2 Sichuan) continues to be silent, while 7225 is much better than usual.
What happened?

Korea jamming was heard on BOTH 6045 and 6135, but later at 1238, found 6135 clear of the jamming,
so R. Madagasikara reception is again possible, while 6045 continues to be jammed. Have never been
able to figure out the rationale for the N. Korea jamming of 6045 and 6135, as clearly VOF is no longer

MADAGASCAR. 5009.95, R. Madagasikara, 1452-1510 UT, Nov 22. Sunday programming of religious
(Christian) songs; 1501, clear SAs for "Radio Madagasikara"; into a program of pop/rap songs (strange
music for a Sunday!). Recently this frequency has daily been well heard via long path around my local
sunrise (1453); while 6135.0 is blocked 1400-1557 by strong CRI.
 
MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1530-1600 UT, on Nov 22. The start of our DX season is here!
Enjoyable reception with fairly readable English - "Hello. Good evening dear listeners. We are airing
our final transmission for today, radiating on 5-9-8-5 kHz., 50.1-3 meters, 5-7-6 kHz., 5-20 meters and
5-9-4 kHz, 5-0-5 meters. Now we start with the news." No mention of Myanmar Radio in the intro!

Government minister at opening ceremony at two power stations, COVID-19 detailed numbers for
Myanmar; COVID-19 numbers for the region (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, etc.); 176 Myanmar citizens
returned to Myanmar after being stranded in India, Australia and New Zealand due to COVID-19
suspension of commercial flights; "This is Myanmar Radio. Now you can hear the weather"; suddenly
cut off 1540*, suddenly back on *1544; music program (Willie Nelson - "You Were Always On My Mind,"
Michael Jackson - "Heal The World," etc.); at *1600 very much blocked by the start of a strong CRI. My
local sunrise at 1453 UT.

TIBET. 6200, Xizang PBS via Lhasa, 1600 UT, Nov 22. The “Holy Tibet” show in English, "presented to
you by China Tibet Broadcasting”; long segment about Tibetan incense and played a lot of indigenous
 music and singing; fairly readable; in another month, should be good!

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS. Had been checking here around 1115, which is normally a good time to catch their 
signal before cutting off about 1130*, but recently nothing was heard. Perhaps today's log explains why?

Nov 23, tuned into 6035, at 1033, to hear an announcer clearly in English, but only bits and pieces made out;
also playing some pop songs; suddenly cut off at 1044*. A new, early closing time? Needs more monitoring.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, on Jan 2, cut off at 1202:45* UT; each day they go off about 5 seconds
earlier than the day before.

MADAGASCAR. 6135, R. Madagasikara, 1515-1526* UT, Jan 3. Surprised to hear them doing fairly well
underneath CRI (English), with African music/singing. Believe normally they go off close to 1500* on
this frequency? On 5009.95, they started at *1526 (not on the air earlier), carrying on with their music
program. Is this their new format/schedule? Needs more monitoring.

MYANMAR. A reminder that Jan 4th (Monday) is their Independence Day. Possible special programming?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA/BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3260, NBC Madang and 3325, NBC Bougainville, Jan 2,
from 1046+ UT, both silent today.

TAIWAN. 6215, Sound of Hope, 1600 UT, Jan 3. Above average reception; as usual no time pips; clear SA by
OM and YL ("Xiwang zhi sheng guoji guangbo diantai" - Sound of Hope international broadcast station);
into the news; // 6230 // 6280, with no CNR1 jamming.  

TIBET. 6200, Xizang PBS, via Lhasa, 1609-1623 UT, Jan 3. "Holy Tibet" with a special New Year's program;
even though only about semi-readable, was very enjoyable, as they played a lot of indigenous music. My

11665, Wai FM, 1335-1401*, Jan 7 (Thursday). From 1335 to 1357, with non-stop Islamic chanting
(my audio is at https://bit.ly/3nwImCC ); "Wai FM" SA (no mention of "Limbang"); ToH 1+1 time pips;
news in vernacular till cut off; still with the long standing poor audio (crackling sound). In past years,
the time period of 1315 to 1400, would normally broadcast on Monday and Thursday the "Wai FM
Limbang" segment, but clearly not on today. Has it been completely dropped or just rescheduled to
another time/day?

Re:Yunnan Radio International - new ID and new schedule on 6035 kHz. Ron Howard - Jan 10 (Sun), 2021 14:17 UTC No.4760
CHINA. 6035 kHz. Yunnan Radio International (PBS Yunnan), on Jan 10, tuned in at 0950 UT,
to check as I often do for any reception of BBS/Bhutan (not heard for a long time), but instead
heard this interesting new schedule. Some highlights:

0950-1000 UT: IS of EZL instrumental music; different from the musical IS played by PBS Yunnan
on 7210 kHz. (please see log below).

1000, 1030, 1043 & 1100: New multi-language SAs (English: "Yunnan Radio International"). It may
be recalled that last July there was an announcement of the station's name being changed from "Shangri-
La" to "International." Today's SAs had no reference to "Shangri-La" and is the first time I have heard the
new SA.

1000-1030: DJ with music program; in Vietnamese.

1030-1100: Announcers in Chinese.

1100-1200: Children's program in Chinese. Normally at *1145, there would be the start of the FM99
("Shangri-La") relay via PBS Yunnan, but that is no longer on the air. There was no break at 1130 for
an ID.

1200: Unable to make out any SA; didn't hear what would normally be heard in the past of the FM99
"Radio Shangri-La" singing jingle, nor did I hear the new "Yunnan Radio International" SA.

As much as I will enjoy hearing Yunnan from 1000+, it will certainly kill any chance of hearing BBS/Bhutan,
as Yunnan will be much stronger than Bhutan.

7210 kHz., PBS Yunnan, *1040, Jan 10. Strong QRM from CNR1 (// 6125) to jam Sound of Hope (Taiwan);
played the usual long loop IS of EZL music till 1100; this IS is different from the musical IS played on 6035.

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.
Wonderful to have them back again! Attached audio of ID and local time check.

Hi Amano,

Thank you so very much for the wonderful VOF program information you provide. Most helpful.

Yes, on Jan 29, I also noted VOF up on 6045 kHz. Perhaps a move to avoid Vatican Radio, via the PHILIPPINES, on 5920 kHz?
I heard 5920 today with a super strong signal at 1437 UT, in Hindi; totally blocking 5920.

6045kHzはジャミングが3kHz上に出ているので、別の局が28日から聞こえている。5920kHzに出ていたVOFがQSYしている。27日は5920kHzに出ていた。
6048のジャミング停波後はVOFがクリアーに聞こえている。
According to Hiroshi's information, VOF existed at 5920 kHz until Jan 27, but moved to 6045 kHz on Jan 28.
At that time, North Korean super jamming existed at 6048 kHz, which is + 3kHz higher.

KOREA SOUTH. Feb 1 (Monday) observed frequencies for this week.

Voice of the People: 3480 (best reception) // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 0820; another
week with no changes.

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3980 // 4885 (Brazil QRM) // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100, at 0815; another
week with all frequencies changed.

Voice of Freedom, on alternate frequency of 6045, at 0825; poor reception due to mixing with N. Korea
super jamming on frequency. VOF ex: 5920, now a clear frequency, but today with OTH radar.

6135 is now being super jammed by N. Korea, with no other station there to be jammed, at 0827.

KBS, on 6015, mixing with N. Korea jamming, at 0830.

Re: Myanmar[non-logs] and Solomon Islands Ron Howard - Feb 01 (Mon), 2021 13:42 UTC No.4771

MYANMAR. Feb 1, checking for any activity (none heard).

5985, normally after NHK closes (1130* UT), I would be hearing Myanmar Radio just signing on, in the clear,
with a decent signal, but today they were certainly not broadcasting; last checked at 1240.

5915, normally would be able to hear some signal from Myanmar Radio underneath CRI, but not heard today.

6165 and 7345, unable to hear any signal from Thazin Radio.

So it seems the military has indeed taken over control of all the SW stations. Needs more monitoring.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1159-1218* UT, Feb 1. Evening Devotional; normal SA in English and
National Anthem; today continued broadcasting from 1203 to 1218*, with non-stop pop songs; almost
fair reception and music with good audio. Running past their usual closing time, which is normally just
after the NA.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(25) :: Ron Howard - Feb 03 (Wed), 2021 05:15 UTC No.4772
AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, 0800+, on Jan 31. "National News"; items about "lock down . . .
quarantine"; weather; spot about history of sports in Australia; pop songs (Peter Frampton -
"Baby, I Love Your Way," etc.), commercial announcements.

CHINA. 6145 // 9630, CNR17, 1703, Feb 2 (Tuesday). Thanks very to Dr Hansjoerg Biener
(Germany) for his valuable feedback about the // 6145, that I had not heard before; the usual
long "Radio" jingle/song; 1720, weekday language lesson in Russian, along with Kazakh;
multi-language intro ("Hi, Hello. Nǐ hǎo [Chinese for "Hello"], How are you?," etc.); repeating
words and phrases in Russian; 9630 slightly stronger than 6145. Jan 29 (Friday), language
lesson was in English.  

ERITREA. 7140, VOBME 1, 1448-1507, Feb 2. HOA music and chanting, via long path; better
than usual reception; also heard 7180, VOBME 2 (clearly not //) and both about equal strength.

KOREA SOUTH. 5995, Echo of Hope - VOH, 0738, Jan 31 (Sunday). The weekend reading of
the "Harry Potter" story in English and Korean; this station plays a four hour program loop, so
this program was in fact heard again at 1138.

MADAGASCAR.  6135, Radio Madagasikara, at 1350, Feb 2. The N. Korea super jamming that
had recently been here for a few days is now gone yet again; RM in the clear with pop songs.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1353+, Feb 2. Back on the air after yesterday's absence;
regular programming; 1527, Buddhist chanting of the sutra, followed by the ringing of a bell;
1531, into English segment, but can only make out bits and pieces due to UNID QRM; news,
but not the usual; long item with OM mentioning "elections," "constitution," "one year state of
emergency"; 1550, normal spot with statistics for COVID-19 for SE Asia; weather; 1555, very
unusual, they went into vernacular, whereas in the past the English segment was all English;
*1559, strong sign on of CRI; 1656*, CRI off; RM in the clear with Bee Gees - "Too Much
Heaven"; closing announcement in English and National Anthem till 1700*.

Thazing Radio, on 6165, assume being heard at 1401+, on Feb 2. Heard under a much stronger
CNR6. Tentatively still on at 1511, past their usual sign off of 1500*?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1109, Jan 31. Better reception today; can clearly tell
the audio is still badly muffled (unreadable). On Feb 1, noted off the air from 1118+, so still broadcasting
erratically.  

PHILIPPINES. 9925, R. Pilipinas, 1737, Feb 2. Excellent reception (a rating I rarely use); in Filipino/
Tagalog; // 12120 was also heard, but with pulsating noise and prominent het; as usual no carrier at all
on 15190.

TIBET. 6200, Xizang PBS, via Lhasa, 1604, Feb 2. "Holy Tibet"; still fairly readable; items about the
upcoming Chinese lunar New Year's Spring Festival, the biggest holiday in China and Tibet, also gives
improved income figures for the people in Tibet.  

VANUATU. 3945, R. Vanuatu, just to prove me wrong, on Jan 31 noted trx off at 1103*, instead of the
recently consistent 1114:30. Propagation varies wildly from day to day. Sometimes can hear the
harmonics (7890 & 11835), other days not heard.  

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC1, 1641, Feb 2. One good thing about them moving away from ex 5995,
is that I can now clearly hear them via long path, as 5995 was always jammed by N. Korea, making
reception impossible; today with repetitive African pop music; almost fair reception.

MYANMAR[non-log]. 5985, Myanmar Radio, via Yangon. Checking 1330+ UT (8 PM local Yangon time),
on March 5; found still off the air past 1545 UT; unusual to find them silent. Searching online
for possible explanation, found the following answer:

https://www.garda.com/crisis24/news-alerts/451311/myanmar-power-outage-reported-in-multiple-cities-nationwide-march-5

"Local sources indicate power outages are occurring in multiple cities nationwide as of the afternoon of March 5.
Reports suggest electrical disruptions are affecting Mandalay, Naypyidaw, and Yangon, among other cities.
Specific details are unclear. The disruptions occurred amid continued unrest and clashes between protesters
and security forces in multiple locations following the Feb. 1 military coup.

Severe commercial and transport disruptions are likely during the outages. Businesses without backup generators
may have to suspend operations. Traffic lights may not function, resulting in traffic disruptions. The power outage
may also prompt brief municipal water outages and interruptions to electronic water filtration systems. Lingering
disruptions are possible after power supplies resume."

"Yes, Ron, definitely off-air on all registered and non-registered frequencies. The website's Radio Vanuatu
online stream is working with full programming. And the TV station is still making news programs tonight which
can be accessed via the VBTC Facebook page. The TV news is not reporting electricity blackouts and the weather
report is for pleasant days ahead. The revamp of the transmitter site more than a year ago was supposed to have
a backup transmitter and antenna for emergency situations such as this.

I have sent a message through their Facebook page requesting more information. We shall see....."

and Rob later added:

"Ron, the other thing I forgot to mention is that the transmitter site is at Emten Lagoon, on the south-west side
of Efate Island. This is a coastal location and so there could well have been water inundation into the site."

Hi Ron-san
Thank you as always for the wonderful audio.
I listened to your two audios.

KOREA SOUTH. 7200, National Unity Radio, 1147 UT, on March 10 (Wednesday).
Started and ended with child singing Chinese jingle.
Your audio is at http://bit.ly/3l4kabg . On March 11, at 1145 UT, another Chinese language lesson.

* Child singing Chinese jingle, the original song of this song is "好想你 (Hao xiang ni) I Miss You“ sung by 四葉草 (Joyce Chu).
She is a Malaysian singer.
I like this song.

TAIWAN. 6215 // 6230 // 6280, Sound of Hope, 1200 UT, on March 11.
Your audio is at http://bit.ly/3l6V2kn .

Ron's audio 00:00-03:00 // 00:05-03:05 SOH website audio

The program name on the audio is "天下縦橫 Tianxia zong heng".
The names of the announcements for the two men and women are 陸濤 (Lu tao) and 方華 (Fang hua).

Between 01:04-01:26 in your audio, two announcers are announcing news contents.

* The U.S. Secretary of State promised to invite Taiwan to attend the Democracy Summit and promote participation in the WHO.
* Ninety percent of Chinese breeding pigs are "foreign descendants" facing the risk of being "stuck".

Amano - What great information you are providing to me!! Am most appreciative! You are the BEST!!! Ron

"China: In the past, there were differing reports about the language lessons at CNR-17. One variant said that Russian lessons were broadcast in the first half of the month and English in the second half. The other variant said that the languages were changing from day to day, with Russian on just days and English on odd days. Today, 9 March 2021, 
I heard a lesson in English:

210309 6145 1720 0903 CHN CNR-17, Kasach., Englisch-Kurs (!) //9630 25322 HjBi
210309 9630 1720 0903 CHN CNR-17, Kasach., Englisch-Kurs (!) //6145 25322 HjBi

"There is/was/will be water/milk in the bottle. There is/was/will be money in my wallet. I have/had/will have [in some sentences missing: a] book. I don’t have [missing: a] book/it. Do you have [missing: a] book/it?"
(Dr Hansjoerg Biener 9 March 2021" - Posted to WOR iog)

Here is my log of the English language lesson on CNR17 today:

CHINA. 6145 // 9630, CNR17, on March 12. From 1721 to 1738 UT, in Kazakh, with an English language lesson;
the usual multi-language intro ("Hi. Hello. Nǐ hǎo [Chinese for "Hello"], How are you?," "Welcome to RSR[?]");
strong whistling; "It is a fine day today," "smaller - taller," "I am better today," "better - best," "I am better than
you," "My car is . .", "My house is . .," "My room is not as clean as yours," etc.; somewhat readable; 9630 many
times stronger than 6145. My audio is at http://bit.ly/3eEmVPz .

Also heard this today:

TAIWAN. 6215, Sound of Hope, 1448-1459 UT, on March 12. Continuing to have much better than normal reception;
very unique segment today with a considerable amount of English by a native speaker, about economics. Very rare
to catch English here. My audio is at http://bit.ly/3ezznQf .

VANUATU. 11835 (harmonic), Radio Vanuatu. Thanks very much for the timely alert from Rob Wagner

0549-0602: Religious music and songs.

0602-0622: A talk in Bislama about family issues; much of it with English words ("family bonding . . loyalty
to each other . . be loyal and faithful . . be understanding of other opinions . . respect their rights . . choose
our own friends and music," etc.); ended with a prayer for the family.

0631+: PSA in Bislama for cyclone preparedness; into music program.

0702: SA and "Welcome to Vanuatu's National News Hour," with news in Bislama.

Much of the time equal strength to // harmonic 7890 kHz.

Re: Taiwan - Fu Hsing BS - Suspected to have a new schedule? Ron Howard - Mar 18 (Thu), 2021 13:12 UTC No.4806

TAIWAN. 9410 // 9774, Fu Hsing BS, 0832-1000* UT, on March 18 (Thursday). Tuned in looking for and
expecting to find 0900*, but that didn't happen. Possibly a new schedule? In the past, it was only on Sunday
they ran to 1000*, otherwise was 0900*; announcers in Chinese and playing a fair amount of Chinese songs;
poor to very poor reception, as this is challenging DX for me; too weak to confirm SA, but the off frequency
and being in parallel helps a lot. Really needs more monitoring to confirm what is actually happening with them.

Echo of Unification's transmitter is turned on for their 1200+ programming, blocking the RV carrier.

Here are my March 22 (Monday) Korea observations:

KOREA NORTH. From 0710+ UT, noted 6045 and 6135, continuing to have super jamming.

KOREA SOUTH. Frequencies for this week:  

VOH: At 0941 UT, only three frequencies on the air; all well heard; 3985 // 5995 // 6350; news stories
in English and Korean; a new time for this segment; formerly 0741 and 1141. Do not know what the new
news schedule is? Later at *1000, found 4880 // 6245 // 9095.

VOP: At 0946 UT, only three frequencies on the air; 3480 // 3910 // 4450. Later at 1001, found 
3930 // 6520 // 6600.

Voice of Freedom: At 0930 UT, on 5920; fair-good reception (no jamming), with "Hanminjog tong-illo 
milaelo" program (Korean people, to unity, to the future).

BTW - Radio Vanuatu was off the air March 22, checking their frequencies from 0545 through 0955 UT. 
Also off the air was NBC Madang (3260), silent now for a long time; NBC Bougainville (3325), also a 
long time absent; and no signal at all on 7325 (Wantok Radio Light), at 0915 UT.

Re: Korea - Voice of Freedom back on 6045 kHz., along with N. Korea super jamming Ron Howard - Mar 25 (Thu), 2021 15:47 UTC No.4819

KOREA SOUTH. back on alternate frequency 6045 (ex: 5920), at 1437 UT, March 25. N. Korean
super jamming dominates this frequency, so very poor VOF reception. Recently sent Jamie LaBadia,
the radio engineer who installed the VOF's SW transmitter, an audio clip of my recent 5920 reception.
He was very pleased to learn the VOF signal was still strong and the audio very good, along with no
jamming. Sad that VOF has again moved to 6045, which is a terrible frequency assignment.

Ex: 5920, heard with strong Vatican Radio signal, via Philippines, with Hindi music, so no VOF QRM!.

Hi Ron-san and sat_dxer,

Thank you for the information on 6160 kHz Pyongyang BS.
Pyongyang BS on 6160 kHz, I also checked it out.

KOREA NORTH. 6160, Pyongyang BS, -1800* UT, on March 27 (Saturday).
The music faded out after 1759 UT, and the station ID and time announcement.
The announcement is "평양방송 입니다. 3시를 알려드겠습니다. (Pyeong-yang bangsong-ibnida. Se-sileul allyeodeugessseubnida)“.
* “3시(Se-si)“ is 0300 PYT (1800 UTC)
After the time signal, Pyongyang BS stopped.
After that, the CRI German program started.
There was an announcement of CRI German ID "Dies ist Radio China International".
My audio (02:00) is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4705.mp3 .

Pyongyang BS, which existed at 6400 kHz, stopped at 1800 UT.
The current 6160 kHz also stops at 1800 UT.
Since Pyongyang BS appeared at 6160 kHz, 6400 kHz is still stopped, so the possibility of ex: 6400 is very high.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, on March 28; a rare day with some actual audio.

1110 UT - After the news in Chinese, ending with the distinctive national song “Bagimu Negeri” (For You Our Country).

1307 - After the news in English, ending with the national song “Bagimu Negeri”; followed by "Today In History."
 
1409 - After the news in Bahasa Indonesia, ending with the national song “Bagimu Negeri.” My local sunrise
was at 1359 UT.

Very nice to find VOI is still playing this patriotic song after every news broadcast. Unable to hear // 4749.95,
via Cimanggis/Jakarta due to heavy QRM there.    

KOREA SOUTH. 9095, Echo of Hope - VOH, 0539 UT, on March 26. News headlines in English; news in English
and Korean. March 27 (Saturday), weekend schedule at 1131, with the usual reading in English and Korean
of a "Harry Potter" story.

7200, National Unity Radio [non-log], checking 1102 UT, on March 28, to find they have finally left this frequency,
so it is now clear for ham use.

LAOS[non-log]. 6130, Lao National Radio. Recently (including March 28) at 1200 UT, checking here for any trace
of the LNR ringing of bell/gong 7 times, but clearly only Tibet being heard (// 6200), with no hint of any QRM. LNR
has been gone for a long time now!

MALAYSIA. 9835, Sarawak FM, via Kajang (on the west coast of the Malaysia peninsular - not from Sarawak), at
1050-1053 UT, on March 28. The distinctive Islamic Maghrib (sunset prayer) call-to-prayer; later at 1159-1202, the
Isa'a (night prayer) call-to-prayer; these are just two of the five daily Islamic prayers: fair.

11665, Wai FM, via Kajang, 1029 UT, March 28. Finally the audio quality is somewhat better than had recently been
broadcast.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA/BOUGAINVILLE[non-logs]. At 1117 UT, on March 28. Again found no signal at all from either

6135, was clear frequency at 1040, but at 1159 re-check, heard super jamming here again; SJ is on the
air rather erratically!

TAIWAN. 6214.92v, Sound of Hope, 1400 UT, March 29. The now normal, very nice fair reception; never
with any time pips; usual ID and into the news in Chinese. Sorry, I have been rather cavalier about reporting

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, on March 31, at 0915 UT. Pop song; Marvin Gaye - "I Heard It Through
The Grapevine"; heard at a level that allowed for easy IDing of songs.

CHINA. 4900 & 4940, Voice of Strait, 0908+ UT, March 31. Tuned in to find prominent open carriers,
long before their programming audio started.

7345, The Voice of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (CNR7), 1200 UT, April 1. Time
pips and full SA with distinctive "FM" references, identical to Amano's informative posting -
https://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:4805 . Formerly was CNR1 here. My audio is at http://bit.ly/3fzjOIP .  
       
9630, CNR17, from 1716 to 1725 UT, on March 31. In Kazakh, with an English language lesson; the usual
multi-language intro ("Hi. Hello. Nǐ hǎo [Chinese for "Hello"], How are you?," "Welcome to RSR[?]"); strong
whistling; "Monday evening we went to . . ," "Last day of the year," "We went to the town center to welcome
the New Year," etc.; not very readable; unable to hear // 6145.

11835, CNR2. As Glenn has already mentioned:

"VANUATU. 11835, March 25 at 0606, JBA carrier presumed R. Vanuatu, 3945 x 3; but nothing heard on
7890 = 3945 x 2. Will 11835 have a CCI problem in A-21? Yes, tentative HFCC shows nothing on 11835 but
CNR China, 150 kW, 257 degrees from  Xi`an site at 0000-1300! There was nothing at all in B-20 (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)"

March 30 (Tuesday), heard Radio Vanuatu (harmonic), CNR2 and CODAR mixing together at 0508 UT, on 11835;
with RV playing island music; noted CNR2 going off the air after the 0600* time pips; yes, CNR2 is not always
on past 0600+. On March 31, did hear them on long after 0600+. Not sure just what the CNR2 schedule is?
Which days have 0600*? Happy to still find CNR2, at BoH, with their usual brief English SA - "This is C-N-R
Business Radio," which is not given at ToH.

KOREA SOUTH. new 9475, National Unity Radio, 1249-1250 UT, on April 1 (Thursday), ex: 7200. 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; poor, as N. Korea jamming had already started here by
1150. This seems rather strange to me, as the whole time they were on 7200, they were never jammed (not even
once!).

PHILIPPINES. 15190, R. Pilipinas, *1730-1929* UT, May 31. Started out very poor, but later was mostly fair; in Filipino/
Tagalog with long segment about the Philippine national COVID-19 vaccination plan; // 9925 (unusable) // 12120
(partly readable).

TAIWAN. 9410 // 9774, Fu Hsing BS, 0859* UT, March 31. In Chinese and playing some music; at 0843, had a brief
language lesson, with words being repeated, but too weak to tell the language; poor reception, but improving by
sign off.

THAILAND. 5875, RT, 1139 UT, April 1. Still hearing Thai at this time, so the new schedule has not started yet!

Re: CHINA : CNR China National Radio Ron Howard - Jan 17, 2016 17:25 UTC No.759

Interesting situations with Chinese jamming.

4970 kHz. - Thanks to Hiroyuki-san and Hiroshi recently
monitoring the presents of CNR1 on this very unusual
frequency, which for many years had been solely occupied
by AIR Shillong (INDIA); has been heard from about
1245 to 1330. Jan 17 at 1330, I also noted CNR1 on 4970.

Thanks very much to Hiroshi's excellent deductive reasoning,
we can now assume that China has misentered 4970 instead
of 4790. Logically the intended target of the jamming is BBC
Uzbek on 4790, which is scheduled from 1300 to 1330. Believe

6145 kHz. - On Jan 13, after listening to Qinghai PBS till 1400,
heard CNR1 (non-echo) jamming RTI.

Jan 15, both Glenn Hauser and I both heard Firedragon (Chinese
music jamming) after 1400.

Jan 17 at 1511 with CNR1 echo jamming against RTI; has been
a long time since I last heard this type of jamming. Audio at

** CHINA. 4970, CNR1. For years I have enjoyed hearing
AIR Shillong here during my normal listening time (1200-
1400). Dec 16 heard *1055 with AIR IS, followed by IDs in
both Hindi & English.

Dec 15 & 16 QRM from CNR1 (clearly // 6125), mixing
with AIR about 1300. Have never heard this before. Why
would I now be hearing China here? (Ron Howard, San

Jan 21

4790 - BBC - open carrier 1247; at 1259 brief intro (no music today) and time pips; off at 1330*.
CODAR QRM very strong here and BBC was weak, so unable to comment on any other type of
jamming that might be here, but no CNR1 (program jamming) heard here.

4970 - AIR Shillong; 1239 with "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion; about 1246 CNR1
started (// 6125) till off shortly after 1330; mixing with AIR.

So for over a month now China has been locked on 4970 instead of 4790. They may never
notice they are on the wrong frequency??

Hi Ron, very nice recording.

For those struggling with Chinese SA's I'd like to add that CNR12 Chinese channel name is "Yule Guangbo" meaning more "Entertainment Radio" than (what they say on air in English) "Happy Radio".

In your recording after the Beijing time announcement for 21 hours there is a formal SA at 0.09 as "Zhongyang Renmin Guangbo Diantai, AM 7-4-7, Yule Guangbo". At 0.34, when the man starts talking, he gives SA "Yule Guangbo" , repeated later at 3.34 and 3.48.

CHINA. 6030, CNR1. My earlier comments about possibly hearing DRM
signals here in the 1200+ time period were certainly incorrect! Had only
been hearing QRN, along with the Calgary (Canada) signal. So July 23,
was the first day I actually had a positive strong DRM signal, during their
testing 1322+; DRM going on and off for a minute or two during the testing.
Am unable to decode DRM, but here is my audio, with Calgary reception
being 100% blocked once DRM started up. http://goo.gl/QNoSLC .

On July 24, 2018, the Voice of China conducted the second test of DRM digital AM
broadcasting during the year.
According to the official information, the frequency used in this test is 6030 kHz,
and the transmission time is 04:25-02:05 Beijing time, which is consistent with the
transmission time of the original analog signal.
During the test period, routine shutdown maintenance was conducted from 14:00-17:00
on Tuesday, Beijing time.

The original analog signal power of 6030 kHz is 100 kW, which is the same as the
first test launch at the end of January this year. The DRM digital AM broadcast
power is only 30 kW.
It is mainly for launching in North China, and most areas in central and eastern
China can receive signals. Unscheduled downtime during testing based on equipment
commissioning or testing needs.

At the same time, the launch pad staff welcomes conditional enthusiasts to listen
to and record the detailed receiving information, and feedback the feedback to the
official to improve the launching work.
Feedback Email: drrmrtrc@163.com

Frequency change (information is continuously updated during the test)
It stopped at 10:00 on July 25 and resumed at 11:30.
Starting at 09:00 on July 26, the modulation mode is changed to 64QAM, and it is
expected to return to the original mode at 09:00 on July 27.

The 6030kHz was briefly tested and launched on July 13th, 2018, from 09:00 to 15:00.
The content of the launch was ethnic music. The following is the reception situation
at that time.
In addition, Japan's BCLer also received the DRM test signal from China Voice at
6030 kHz on the evening of July 23, which may have started the test work ahead of
schedule.

Yes, in the Perseus user file, but in the larger file in zip there is a note for
0900-1300: "CNR2=7425 a20", which I have understood so, that still in April it would
be 7425 0900-1300 and in May 11835, but maybe I have understood this note wrong?

CNR-1 (Voice of China) may come out to an unexpected frequency. It seems that it is
for jamming, testing a new transmitter, or starting up a standby transmitter, etc...

CMG(=China Media Group)'s "Cross-Strait Radio" (台海之声, lit."Voice of the Taiwan Strait") will be on air soon. 

https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/ctupqRdbJebSi02_ipVswA

As the frequencies on the poster shows, will the "Voice of the Chinese" (中华之声, CNR-5) be renamed "Cross-Strait Radio"?

Hi KBYS and Amano,

Thanks for your very interesting postings. Was fascinated to see there will be a new SA for 台海之声, lit."Voice of the Taiwan Strait."

Many years ago, the Voice of Strait (4940 kHz.) carried a "Focus on China" program in English, during the weekend.
I loved to hear their unique English SA - “This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio.” Have posted an audio clip
I made back in November, 2014, at - http://bit.ly/30ZrvQ3 .

"Focus on China, in Voice of Strait Broadcasting Station . . . Fresh, dynamic, professional, profound, explore Chinese
culture . . . You are now listening to Focus on China." I very much miss hearing the interesting programs that have not
been broadcast via VOS since about August of last year.

Hello! Ron-san

I listened to the VOS audio you received.
SA, “This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio.” Can be copied perfectly!
You can see "MW 666" at 00:23. This is the medium wave frequency of VOS.

I also checked the opening of CNR-5.

CHINA. 9665, CNR-5, 2055-2102 UT, on March 20 (Saturday).
The current CNR-5 is still "中华之声".
As with the ending, there was an AM frequency announcement at the beginning.
After that, it became a program guide for "中华之声".
The program guide was in flash format, so it's interesting to listen to.
After that, as with the ending, there were frequency announcements for MW, SW, and FM.
This time, a male announcer was making an announcement.
After 2100 without a time signal, the "早安悦晨光 (Zao an yue chen-guang)" program started.

On March 20, there was an announcement on CNR-5 "两岸观潮" that the "Cross-Strait Radio" (台海之声) was about to start.
"两岸观潮" archive is at https://bit.ly/3lBOyu1 .
An audio excerpt from that archive.
Excerpt audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4702.mp3 .
The contents announced by the female announcer in the above audio are as follows.

中央广播电视总台台海之声即将开播。今天,台海之声开始曲、结束曲正式发布。

台海之声开始曲以钢琴版《明月千里寄相思》的旋律为基调,伴随着悠扬的乐曲,男女播音员用普通话、闽南话、客家话三种语言娓娓道来,声音穿越海峡,共话两岸一家。

台海之声结束曲以小提琴版《在银色月光下》的旋律为基调,用最熟悉的乡音与海峡对岸的骨肉天亲道一声晚安。

The content is almost the same as the website to which KBYS is linked.

Re: CHINA : CNR China National Radio Ron Howard - Mar 24 (Wed), 2021 11:44 UTC No.4817
March 24 - CNR5 heard at 0905 UT, on 7385 (fair) // 9685 (almost good) // 11620 (almost fair); mostly 
music being played, no ID at BOH and didn't make out any SA; 9685 & 11620 went off at 1000*; 7385
continued on and became // 9410. Perhaps other listeners did better than I did with getting an SA?

BTW - On 9410 // 9774, noted Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan) closing down close to 0901* UT today.

Hello KBYS and Ron-san,

Thank you for the information on the start broadcasting of Cross-Strait Radio (台海之聲).
I received the ending and opening of Cross-Strait Radio on 5925 kHz.

CHINA. 5925, CNR-5 Cross-Strait Radio, 1700-1705 UT, on March 24 (Wednesday).
Received at the end of the broadcast.
As previously announced, the ending will be the ending announcement in Chinese, Minnan, and Hakka with the song "在銀色月光下(Under The Silver Moonlight)" as BGM.
After that, we introduced the program guide in flash format and finished.
The station name ID of each program has also changed to "中央廣播電視總台 台海之聲 (Zhong-yang guang-bo dian-shi zong-tai Tai-hai zhi sheng)".
Since the Cross-Strait Radio, the frequency announcement has disappeared, and the URL introduction of www.hellotw.com has also disappeared.
My audio (05:20) is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4703.mp3 .

CHINA. 5925, CNR-5 Cross-Strait Radio, 2055-2102 UT, on March 27 (Saturday).
Received at the start of broadcasting.
As previously announced, the song "明月千里寄相思(The Bright Moon Brings Love To A Thousand Miles)" will be used as BGM, and the AM and FM frequency announcements and the opening announcements in Chinese, Minnan, and Hakka will begin.
After that, the program schedule will be announced.
At 2100 UT, the first program started with "古典悅動聽 (Gu-dian yue-dong ting) ".
The first program at the time of 中華之聲 was "早安悦晨光 (Zao an yue chen-guang) ", but after becoming 台海之聲, it was delayed by one hour and started at 2200 UT.

liberal democracy, free market economy, ROK-US companionship, and Christian entry theory.

North Korean defectors are connecting to North Korea's nine provinces, 211 cities and counties,
