Greetings, Komatsubara, from California! Thank you for your very helpful postings. Greatly appreciated! Ron

CUBA. 5025, R. Rebelde, Oct 30. Recently acting erratically; 1056 UT, no signal; 1151+, audio briefly cutting
on and off with sports coverage of today's Pan American women's volleyball match between Cuba and Mexico, held
in Chile.

KOREA NORTH[non]. Shiokaze/Sea Breeze/JSR on Oct 30, with new frequencies; 1303 UT, found a good signal on 6085; 
went looking for their second // frequency, but was very difficult to find till finally noted on 7280, with QRM.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1402+ UT, Oct 30. Just before my local sunrise (1428 UT); heard with unusually good reception; program with chatting on the phone, with the caller breaking into song (no music), plus music/
singing. My audio is at https://app.box.com/s/qy171p3rdxnf7u850o80o13zkbzactr8 .

5915, Myanmar Radio, 1108 UT, Oct 30. Very poor reception due to the new schedule of CRI (China) being on
frequency. CRI // 7290.

PHILIPPINES. 11570, VOA, 1158 UT, Oct 30. IS and IDs; 1200, news program in Korean.

TAIWAN. on new 7245 (ex: 7200, which today was still jammed by N. Korea), National Unification Broadcasting
(National Unity Radio), *1100 UT, Oct 30. started with theme music and ID; poor frequency assignment with CNR2
(China Business Radio) QRM; 1136, children singing in English and it seemed to be a brief English language
lesson dealing with "opinion." My audio, starting with time pips from CNR2, ia at https://app.box.com/s/2bjhhscnx0tbq6x9o57337zcrn0hvlbd . Website, which still shows ex: 7200, has not been
updated yet, is at http://www.uni-media.net/ . This week, N. Korea will probably start jamming this frequency.

Thank you so much Ron-san !!!


This year, my PC broke down several times and I was flooded, so I couldn't continue listening to the radio.
There are still many unresolved issues, so I may be on hiatus for a long time.
This time, I was quite flustered and listened to the radio in a hurry, so there may be many mistakes.
Please follow me if you like !

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM, from 1101 to 1130 UT, Nov 26. Sunday Christian religious service (Catholic?); 
singing "hallelujah" and other religious songs; service with the congregation responding. Had always thought
of Malaysia as completely strong regarding Islam, but actually in Sarawak, Christianity is the majority religion,
so it makes sense that they would have a Sunday Christian service via Wai FM. 9835 (Sarawak FM) remains silent.

Re: Malaysia - Wai FM on 11665 kHz. Amano - Dec 01 (Fri), 2023 15:40 UTC No.5538
Hi Ron-san.
Thank you for the information that Christianity is the majority religion in Sarawak. That certainly seems like it.
When I listen to Wai FM in the local mornings, I often hear a song saying "hallelujah" or end a talk with "amen".
My four minute audio is posted at attached.
* 00:00-03:00, Nov 14, 2147’05“-2150’05“ UT, a song saying "hallelujah".
* 03:00-04:00, Nov 29, 2209’30“-2210’30“ UT, end a talk with "amen"@03:19.

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, from 0745 till suddenly cut off in mid-song at 0820* UT, Dec 2. Seeing as
Christianity is a major religion in this area, they have already started playing some Xmas songs ("Jingle Bells"
and "Joy To The World"). My music audio is at - https://app.box.com/s/1vumzt35he346hgkb4pbvyqbmss36b91 .

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom (Jayu-e soli Bangsong). Dec 2, now with two strong N. Korea jamming

On December 21st, Shiokaze changed its frequency. 1300 came out at 5930 and 7335kHz. 5930kHz can be heard
clearly. However, 7335kHz is fighting with CNR2 of the same frequency. It depends on the reception area,
but the radio waves in Yamata are crushed here. On Thursday, both the first half and the second half are
broadcast in Korean

on 1405 on 6045 and 6085kHz. There is no interference as both waves are on the same frequency. Reception
conditions are generally good. The signal is a little weak and seems to be on the rise. At the beginning
and end of this time, there are announcements of ``Shiokaze,'' and the program includes ``Furusato no Kaze,''
which was broadcast last week on 1330.

Thanks for the following info: https://cahcn.github.io/posts/2023-12-21-voice-of-strait.html (Google translation
from Chinese):

"After significantly reducing its own programs and frequency for nearly a year, on December 21, 2023 [I actually
heard a change in broadcasting times on both Dec 18 & 19 - Ron], Voice of the Straits Radio adjusted its program
schedule again, extending the broadcast time from 11:55-23:00 [? In the past year I observed VOS only on the air
from about 1145 to 1300 UT - Ron] to 6:25-0:00 .

In actual listening, including the opening song and program preview, the duration of the premiere program is only
6 hours and 30 minutes, and the rest of the time is rebroadcast. The duration of the premiere program only accounts
for about 37% of the total program duration, less than half, and the program production capacity is still insufficient.
Return to the level before the beginning of this year.

This adjustment to the program schedule did not resume the broadcast of Hokkien-language programs, and all-day
programs are still broadcast in Mandarin.

From  KBS World news Jan. 13.

Radio Pyongyang (targetting the South) goes Off Air as North Shutters Agencies Handling South

North Korea has been shuttering or reorganizing its agencies and bodies in charge of South Korean affairs
following leader Kim Jong-un's declaration that he'd given up on the "hostile" South as a partner for
reunification at a ruling party meeting last month.

North Korea's state-run Radio Pyongyang - which aired broadcasts targeting South Korean listeners - has
been off-air since Friday afternoon. Its website was still down as of Saturday afternoon.

The suspension of Radio Pyongyang appears linked to the closing of agencies that handled interactions with
South Korea, given that one such agency reportedly operated the station.

Radio Pyongyang had carried North Korea's revolutionary propaganda aimed at South Koreans since the 1960s.
The so-called numbers station also broadcast formatted numbers to convey orders to North Korean agents
operating in the South.

The North also erased the Uriminzokkiri or "We Are One" page from its overseas propaganda website Naenara,
which uses North Korea's .kp domain. The page contained content that highlighted Korean reunification.

Other websites targeting South Korean readers that use .com domains have also been unreachable since Wednesday.
They are likely being closed or reorganized in line with the shuttering of agencies dealing with the South.

The North's state-run Korean Central News Agency reported Saturday that a meeting of officials in charge of
"affairs with enemies" had decided to "readjust" several organizations dealing with the South, including the
North Side Committee for Implementing June 15 Joint Declaration, the North Headquarters of the Pan-national
Alliance for Korea's Reunification, the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation and the Council for
the Reunification of Tangun's Nation.

N. Korea - Both 3320 // 6160 (Pyongyang BS) and 3945 // 5905 (Echo of Unification) remain silent through Jan 15.

Myanmar Radio (5915.0), on Jan 15, returned to its normal frequency (briefly on ex 5919.0); heard at 1252 UT;
mixing badly with CRI on frequency. Eventually, if Myanmar had stayed on 5919, there would have been a serious
problem when the Voice of Freedom (clandestine) returned to their often used alternate frequency of 5920
(currently on 6045, with pulsating noise jamming and super jamming white noise from N. Korea), which would
have blocked any chance of 5919 reception!

reading a collection of poems by North Korean defectors "I will sell my daughter for 100 won"; // 7335, up
against a strong CNR2.

Thanks very much to Hiroshi for enlightening us, with the help of a Google translation:

"This collection of poems was published in April 2008 by Jang Jin-seong, a North Korean defector. He graduated
from Kim Il Sung University in his mid-30s and was in charge of promoting and agitating the Kim Jong Il regime
as a member of the Central Committee of the Korean Writers' Union. He defected from North Korea in 2004. A total
of 71 poems deal with the tragedy of the Great Famine, in which 3 million people starved to death in the four
years from 1995 to 1998.

A mute woman with a crying baby by her side carries a paper around her neck that says, ``I will sell my daughter
for 100 won.'' When the soldier handed over 100 won, the woman ran away and returned with the bread in her arms.
She stuffed it into her daughter's mouth and cried as she left. The scene is said to have been witnessed at a black
market in Pyongyang in 1999. At the time, 100 won was the price of half an egg in North Korea. Under a system where
even writing poetry itself was not allowed, the poems began with ``hymns to rice'' such as ``Our food is the thick
bark of the tree,'' and continued with a series of vivid words about the way people lived to survive, public executions,
and criticism of the system."

Myanmar Radio (5915), Jan 18, with about the best reception ever heard from Myanmar on this frequency;
1240-1400* UT; mostly eclectic music (EZL pop songs through to indigenous songs, etc.); some announcers;
going off the air after the usual brief theme music (indigenous instrumental music).

What happened to CRI today? No signal at all, making for wonderful Myanmar reception! Normally CRI's strong
signal kills Myanmar.

My wife, who was born in Shanghai, tells me today (Jan 18) is a Chinese holiday (Laba festival), so perhaps
that has changed the usual CRI programming? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laba_Festival .

Feb 10 will be the Chinese New Year/Lunar New Year/Spring Festival, so we might expect to find some Chinese

Feb 3 - Yes, today at 1106 UT, heard extremely poor reception of Myanmar Radio on 5919.0, being blocked by the
strong N. Korean jamming (both super noise jamming and rapid pulsating jamming!) of Voice of Freedom (clandestine),
on 5920, which when I heard them yesterday, there was no jamming at all. So no longer any decent reception of Myanmar
on 5919.0, as long as VOF and jamming are on 5920. CRI continues to be silent on 5915, so now would be a good time for
Myanmar to return to their former 5915.

Other Myanmar reception on Feb 3:

5985 kHz. - Myanmar's open carrier on at 1118 UT; audio started at 1121, with fair reception; at 1124, start of CRI's
open carrier, blocking Myanmar (China's audio started at 1130); Myanmar // to 9730.

9730 kHz. - Myanmar heard underneath a strong Alaska signal, till Myanmar off at 1147* UT, while // 5985 continued on.

New Year's Eve Gala; might be worth it to check both CNR1 and CNR2 to find which will relay the CCTV coverage;
also check the many regional SW station's to find who else might air this major 4+ hour production; in past years
I noted Qinghai ("Qinghai News Comprehensive Broadcasting"), etc., with the relay.

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.


YouTube 1459- : https://youtu.be/-Rm7tinAkJ4
** 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 . . . "
http://goo.gl/7VCh8M

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
the future"・. This frequency has no drifting as did 5917.4v, so must be a
different VOF transmitter.

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.
https://youtu.be/qgQ-XKYFG9E

I also recorded the same sound at the same time as Ron-san.
I upload a bit longer audio here.
My audio at http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/img/3171.mp3

My audio 00:30-01:38 // Ron-san's audio
After 01:38, it is "Park Myung-Ho ga nolaehabnida. Hamkke haebwayo".

** 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,

Hello! Ron-san.

Thank you VOF audio for the latest frequency.
I linked your audio to the VOF program guide.

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!

In Japanese:
http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/?res:4314

In English:
VOF opening music titled "Frontier" by Mr. Yang Bang-ean (Japan name: Liang Kunihiko).
He is a pianist, a second generation Korean residents in Japan.
https://youtu.be/vDd38LEu48Y

This song can be heard at the start of every broadcast.
In the case of Yagan Bangsong (Nighttime program),
it can listen 9 minutes before the hourly report including the national anthem.
Other broadcasts can listen to the song 2 minutes before the start.

Gentlemen, can you please help with the SA for the following programs,
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]

Re: Australia on 5045 kHz. Ron Howard - Mar 16 (Thu), 2023 12:07 UTC No.5426
RE: Australia on 5045 kHz.:

Received a nice reply back from Shannon, after emailing today's report and audio to the station.
He informs me that the station plays TWO DIFFERENT PLAYLISTS. His format/playlist is more of heavy
rock music - "More rockier party stuff is a rebroadcast of my 88fm we are now called 'bayislands
radio,' this has IDs and couple adds so you know it's me," which is what I reported hearing back
on Feb 27 (s, etc.).

While it is Kevin, the licensed station owner, who's format/playlist I actually heard today, with
no SAs, etc.
 
So Kevin and Shannon both share airtime on 5045!

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(30) :: [B22] ~ [A23] Ron Howard - Mar 16 (Thu), 2023 12:09 UTC No.5427
Sorry - typo - corrected: "on Feb 27 (SAs, etc.). 

Re: Australia - Bay Islands Radio and Radio DX Ron Howard - Mar 17 (Fri), 2023 01:04 UTC No.5428

Shannon has kindly replied to my further inquiry about his SW operation, in addition to the information he
has already sent me in his first email that I posted yesterday (" . . . So Kevin and Shannon both share
airtime on 5045!").

First of all, I need to correct one item in my logs. "Island FM" is the wrong name and should not be used.
The station's correct name is "Bay Islands Radio," with no reference at all to "Island FM."

Per Shannon's second email:

"Antenna was made by me. It's a standard dipole with a homemade ugly balun feeding it up about 13m.
It sits just under my FM antenna... we can go to 16m, but the telescopic poles are aluminum and with
our island [Russell Island] winds here I didn't want to go higher...

Things are in the works to put up a vertical to try .. Kevin wants local coverage, but I will put it on
a switch with the dipole.

Transmitter is a brand new Australian made srk transmitter, 150-200 carrier,  500-600 watts pep
($6500 aussie).

We had another one from pll.gr which lasted 2 min and took 12 months to get our money back. We were
previously on a 'stretchy transmitter' from England which was quite a reliable little rig."

Pictures from Shannon:

88.0 MHz. FM transmitter - https://app.box.com/s/syduk17oi4664547jg2le7n1zcfuio9g .

Am very grateful to Shannon for providing this interesting information. Is extremely nice to now be able
to visualize what the SW station looks like, as I listen to Kevin and Shannon's enjoyable playlists.

Am also very appreciative to Nick, who had recently been testing his "Radio DX" transmitter on Norfolk
Island, also on 5045 kHz. He provided a picture of the Radio DX's antenna, with a base insulator and
vertical wire. Nick is on a hilltop, 140m above the ocean and the antenna is suspended from 50m tall
pine tree. Thanks, Nick!! https://app.box.com/s/a8kap4o851ej7hlja1uk8tlthjrncpez .

Australia still has some wonderful opportunities for SW DX!!

Re: Voice of Mongolia (12014.87 kHz.) Ron Howard - Mar 19 (Sun), 2023 05:25 UTC No.5429
I have recently been enjoying some fairly decent reception of the Voice of Mongolia (12014.87). 
Heard 1040 to sign off at 1100 UT, on March 17; in Japanese, with some very nice Asian instrumental
music; not great reception, but not too bad, even with CODAR QRM. My audio of one minute of music,
followed by the sign off ID (fairly clear "Voice of Mongolia" and Website) at https://app.box.com/s/uwsb641m663rei5knddioppb7ue4xh61 .

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(30) :: [B22] ~ [A23] Ron Howard - Mar 19 (Sun), 2023 20:26 UTC No.5430
AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, 0812+ UT, March 18. Mostly pop songs; Tony Orlando & Dawn - "Knock Three Times,"
Rod Stewart - "Maggie May," Hall and Oates - "Rich Girl," Dionne Warwick - "That's What Friends Are For, etc.;
slightly better than normal reception; just good enough to be able to ID a few songs.

CHINA. 4990, PBS Hunan, 1325-1415 UT, March 19. Well above the norm; in Chinese with on-air phone conversations;
1335+, with EZL songs; not often heard at this fair level.

6060 // 7225, Sichuan Ethnic Radio (Sichuan PBS-2), 1300 UT, March 19. The normal multi-language SAs ("Sìchuān
mínzú guǎngbò, Sichuan Ethnic Radio"); into vernacular; unusual to find both frequencies doing well, as normally
6060 is much stronger.

6105-USB, VC01, 1240 UT, March 19. The Chinese Military numbers station is still here at 1240 UT, March 11; woman
reading numbers in Chinese; underneath very heavy QRM. Also at 1005 UT, on March 17.

KOREA SOUTH. 6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, at 1210 UT, March 17. In Korea with "KBS News at 9" (9 PM KST),
which was the audio feed from KBS1-TV - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=METr_AoRMHw ; light N. Korean jamming.

9100 // 6250, Echo of Hope - VOH, 0724 UT, March 18 (Saturday). Continuing with the weekend only reading of a
portion of Chapter 12 of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (segment about the cloak of invisibility),
along with lengthy explanations in Korean; nice to catch them this early with decent reception. Still with a
four hour program loop.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1416+ UT, March 19. Fair reception with radio drama; // 9820, very much blocked
by CNR2, which was nice at 1430 to hear the usual BoH (not given at ToH) SA in English - "This is C-N-R Business
Radio."

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC - Voice of the Nation, 1213+ UT, March 17. Running well past their normal 1200*; playing
non-stop pop songs; still on at 1335.

Last year, on Sept 23, SIBC had a special 70th anniversary broadcast and indicated reception reports would be verified
with a special SIBC e-QSL card, but I never received one, nor have I seen any reports of it being issued to anyone!  

VANUATU. 7260, Radio Vanuatu. Back on March 16, I reported "0637-0639, dead air with no audio," which must have been
the start of their transmitter problems. March 18, from 0625-0640 UT, had befinite audio in Bislama, but from 0640+
there was no audio at all, just an open carrier/dead air, past 0735+.

I definitely heard them on 12084.87, NOT 12014.87. Very sorry for my mistake!

Even over here on the California coast, I have recently been enjoying some fairly decent reception of the Voice of Mongolia
(12084.87). Heard 1040 to sign off at 1100 UT, on March 17; in Japanese, with some very nice Asian instrumental music;

hear the new VOH frequency of 7720 kHz. (ex: 9100), on both March 23 & 24.

https://app.box.com/s/fw9sl8utq1mp5w5u86zx0d37pah49pcn contains my recording made March 24, at 1150 UT; the
closing segment of the "Wang cho bo yeong-eo" (translated into English - Beginner's English) TV program; the show
started at 1124 (and closes) with their theme song - "Party Will Come Alive" by Wizardz Of Oz (with Ruben Martinez);
same program broadcast both days; also // to the usual 3985 // 4885 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350. Are they back to six
frequencies now or is there a seventh frequency someplace? Also heard this same program on March 23, at 1524 till
1553 UT; confirming their four hour program loop.

Voice of the People, 3910 kHz., start of a program at 1417 UT, March 23; heard after the news ("bodo"); also // 3480

Observations for March 27 (Monday):

AUSTRALIA[non-log]. 5045, Bay Islands Radio, has not been heard for a while now!

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire, 0817-0848* UT; not the normal format, but instead must be different due to Ramadan;
usually it is 95% non-stop EZL songs, but today non-stop announcers (no music) till cut off in mid-sentence; signal
slowly improving.

KOREA SOUTH. 7720, Echo of Hope - VOH, 0945+ UT. Start of the audio feed of the English language lesson with news
headlines (sudden collapse of SVB Financial Group, etc.); Sue Choi's EBS "Morning Special" program, which was
originally broadcast back on March 13 and as seen on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDqQWM4zEd0
(interesting to actually see the announcers!).

UNID. 7325-USB, 0956-0957 UT. I often check this frequency in the hope that Wantok Radio Light (PNG) will reactivate,
but I never heard anything before 0957, so I was very surprised to hear a station only in USB, playing a pop song till
totally blocked by the start of CRI at *0957. Is this a pirate or what?

Hi group,

A station in Korean has an extended service on 7355 kHz since 26 March. I can hear in on various Japanese Kiwi SDRs starting at 1200, it lasts until 1400 and beyond. Mostly easy talks and South Korean singers. Due to some family duties, can't listen or record the sign-on at 1200 exact.

No such entry in the KBS A23 sked. Any hint? BBC Korean via PHT is only registered here after 1530 (HFCC data).

CHINA. 17398-USB, Guangzhou Coast Radio Station, 0604-0607* UT, April 2. Pleased to find this is still active; 
in Chinese with assume marine weather; almost fair.

A reminder as to what this station is all about, from my 2013 eQSL (translated from Chinese):

"First of all, thank you for listening to our station's broadcast on safety information at sea. We confirm you heard
our station's weather forecast at sea ...

Guangzhou Coast Station was established to participate in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea
(SOLAS) and to fulfill the responsibilities and obligations under the International Maritime Organization (IMO). It
provides safety information to ships at sea on distress alert, safety, rescue communication, ship-to-shore public
communication, weather forecast on China marine waters, and navigational warnings.

Every year we receive reception reports from radio listeners around the world. What makes us especially pleased is
our signals are heard as far as in the United States. We really appreciate you providing us with this information.
It is encouraging. We hope you will continue to follow our broadcasts with interest. We will try to provide the best
services to ships at sea.

Guangzhou Coast Station is located in Guangzhou city, which is in Guangdong Province of China. Guangzhou is a beautiful
city. We hope you will be able to visit Guangzhou some day.

Wish you great success and good health.

Mingbiao Luo
Guangzhou Coast Station"

INDONESIA[and non]. 7289.93, RRI Nabire, 0756-0812* UT, April 3. The usual EZL songs till 0809, when they
switched to an Islamic type of music (probably due to Ramadan!) and announcer; cut off in mid-sentence. The
cut off time varies a great deal, with some days going past 0930+.  

WRMI relay of the Voice of Indonesia - Channel Two, on 7780, at 0827 UT, April 3; native speaker of English
describing the tranquil scenery in Indonesia, "Land of the dragon."

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6040, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze/JSR, 1317 UT, March 31. Dramatic presentation in Japanese;
1330, switched to Korean; very good reception; // 6165, with strong CNR6 QRM (Shiokaze with another poor
frequency assignment!).

KOREA SOUTH. 7355, National Unification Broadcasting (National Unity Radio), 1245 UT, March 31. Started the
brief Chinese language lesson with the usual theme song, which I very much enjoy, by Joyce Chu (a Malaysian
singer) "Hao xiang ni - I Miss You“ ( https://youtu.be/fdQgPu3iUYk ).

Back on Feb 16, I had a native speaker of Chinese (Mandarin) listen to the NUR lesson on 5900 and she indicated:

"It's a very bad Chinese lesson, the speaker speaks in wrong tones, so I didn't immediately understand what she
was talking about. . ."

Today she listened to my audio and commented that it was another terrible lesson, with the wrong pronunciations and
content not making any sense. So the quality of the lessons varies a lot from day-to-day! I really miss the former English
language lessons that NUR aired years ago - https://app.box.com/s/4sw0eibfxbsn1babbi56u1uagkosz9h2 . Those were fun!

NIGERIA. 7254.94, VON, noted cut off at 0619* UT, April 2; good signal strength, but only moderate audio level.

(my audio attached); 0701-0713, news in Bislama (several items about the number of households in Vanuatu without
clean water and food, a month after the recent natural disasters [news story - http://bit.ly/3U72sVZ ], etc.);
island pop songs; 0730+, generic PSA about cyclones; somewhat readable.

Thanks Amano, for your interesting logs! Always enjoy learning what you are hearing!! 

Thanks to the motivation from Martyn Williams, who is presently in Seoul, here are my April 6 observations:

KCBS - at 1145 UT, heard 3250 // 6099.95 (after 1200, strong CRI QRM) // 11680 (good, with the best
reception, but after 1200, strong CRI QRM); also noted carrier on 3959.0, but No Audio noted. For some
time now, have noted no 3220!

PBS - at 1150 UT, heard 3320 // 6160 (good).

Echo of Hope - VOH - at 1153 UT, the usual weekday EBS TV audio feed for the English language lesson
("Wang cho bo yeong-eo" - Beginner's English); "Thank you for helping me," Make yourself at home." Still
with a four hour program loop, repeating the same shows every 4 hours; 3985 // 4885 // 5995 // 6250 //
6350 (good) // 7720 (the best!).

Voice of the People - at 1140 UT, the usual 3480 // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 4560 // 6520 (extremely poor) // 6600.

Voice of Freedom - at 1158 UT, the closing ID for "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is power); 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;
back on alternate 6045 (ex: 5920); No Jamming at all, so good reception.
My audio is at https://app.box.com/s/cjolevjwf99qzqvpqjogv8x5v1tob5tu .

Greetings from California! This might be of interest, as the station had been silent for a while.

COLOMBIA. 6010, LV de tu Conciencia, 0545-0640 UT, on April 6. Reactivated after a considerable absence (Easter
is almost here!); mostly non-stop eclectic selections of music and songs; of course many LA songs, but also noted 
a Viennese Waltz of Johann Strauss (my audio - https://app.box.com/s/4zrxddfoyleaoluf2aps841pwwjaq839 ) and a song
by Bob Dylan. There was a lot of QRN tonight, so I was not able to make out what the brief announcers said, but
assume the station SA? Wonderful to have this Colombian station back again!

Thanks very much to Rafael Rodríguez R. (QSL Manager < rafaelcoldx@yahoo.com > ) for the quick reply to my reception

normally playing mostly EZL songs!); 0857, EZL song and announcers; 0904, brief Islamic sounding music

item. Lead item about Solomon Airlines has sent an aircraft to assist Vanuatu’s recovery efforts following the
devastation caused by cyclones earlier this month; Japan has provided Vanuatu airport with a new 6,000 litre
fire truck; former Premier Daniel Suidani has been disqualified from government office due to his opposition

Hi Amano - Thank you for your continued monitoring of Wai FM. Is indeed wonderful for us to now be able to
really enjoy Wai FM programming. I only wish Sarawak FM (9835 kHz.) would resume broadcasting again!

Regarding your question - "what is this prayer-like chorus of men?":

My 2021 log: "11665, Wai FM, 1335-1401*, Jan 7 (Thursday). From 1335 to 1357, with non-stop Islamic chanting
(my poor quality audio is at https://app.box.com/s/fz28ys1o75yadt9stf8opx6n7uchm6dc ). . ."

But my friend Timm Breyel, of Malaysia, corrected me regarding the chanting. "By the way, the audio file for Wai
FM is not Islamic. If so, it would be in Arabic. It is one of the dialects spoken in Sabah, and possibly their
prayers." I always appreciate the informative observations from Timm, as he is there in Malaysia first hand!

Amano, thanks again for all your most helpful comments and observations!!

Re: Voice of the Martyrs Korea and Shiokaze Ron Howard - May 03 (Wed), 2023 19:05 UTC No.5463
Voice of the Martyrs Korea (11620), at *1500 UT (12:00 midnight JST), May 3. Had the usual intro in English, but 
then no English preaching, but instead was a non-stop monologue in Dhivehi (Maldivian). My audio posted at https://app.box.com/s/ycqvhrojx0n8c3lm6itxk60a02583ouf . Seems that most days it is in English, so today was a
nice change.

Also heard Shiokaze at 1330 UT, in English with good reception on 6090 kHz. and // to being poorly heard on 5920, 
with QRM from Voice of Freedom and white noise jamming. This jamming is NOT the former pulsating noise jamming
and today VOF was very poor (unusable) due to this more effective jamming.

NORWAY(non). 9900, RNEI, xmtr turned on at 0918 UT (open carrier/dead air); audio started at 0925, on May 6. Mostly
pop songs with some SAs/announcements in English and Japanese (one SA in Norwegian?); broadcasting with encoded

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(30) :: [A23] Ron Howard - May 07 (Sun), 2023 18:30 UTC No.5465
INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia (Channel One), from Palangkaraya, 1300+ UT, May 7. Start of segment in English;
news/commentary, followed by the usual patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri”; announcement for this year's "writing an essay
contest"; "Today in History"; "Indonesia Today" program; only able to make out bits and pieces.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, May 7. An unfortunate development here with non-stop super jamming (white
noise); seems to be the ex 6045 supper jamming; in the past, the different pulsating noise jamming that followed VOF
when they changed frequencies, normally ended shortly after 1100, leaving VOF with fairly good reception. That is not
the case now with the supper jamming, which seems to always be on and is very effective jamming. So the days of
good VOF reception seem to be over as long as the SJ continues.

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM, 1344-1400* UT, May 7. Non-stop with the often heard chanting/poem(?) till 1400, cut off just
after the start of the news; fair reception with good audio. Here are two points of interest:

1) Sarawak FM (9835) has been off the air since about Nov 2022 and up till then always had a good signal along
with good audio. In the past, Wai FM always had a poor signal, with poor audio sounding rather overmodulated
and with echo. Then sometime this year Wai FM suddenly had a good signal along with a vastly improved audio.
Thinking about this change, it seems to me that there is a good possibility that the former Sarawak FM transmitter
has been switched over for Wai FM use? Have to wonder what the status is for the former Wai FM transmitter?
Will Sarawak FM ever return to the air again?  

2) Amano (Japan) and I often have heard the chanting/poem(?) via Wai FM. Thanks very much for his reporting:
"After researching this chant, I found the following YouTube video. 'Pantun Bulan' seems to mean 'Poetry of the
month', but I wonder if the received audio is the April poem? Discovered YouTube video is at
https://youtu.be/FZr3WA9CxiU ."

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, 1331 UT, May 7. Now that CRI is not broadcasting here, they have fair reception;
best in LSB, to get away from the mess on 5920 (Shiokaze/Voice of Freedom/super jamming).

5985, Myanmar Radio, 1332 UT, May 7. Sounds like super jamming (white noise) is here now (just temporarily?).

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1211-1227* UT, May 5. Running past their usual sign off; non-stop pop songs.

USA. 7505, WRNO, 1139 UT, May 5. Preaching in Chinese, with simultaneous translation into English; still heard
in Chinese at 1245, but off the air at 1320 check (1300*?).

VANUATU. 11835 (third harmonic of 3945), Radio Vanuatu, *0659:00 UT, May 6. Have consistently found that it takes
them about 10 seconds to switch frequencies from 7260 to 3945; 0702-0719, news/sports in Bislama (lead story of
Christopher Emelee, Vanuatu's Minister of Internal Affairs, resigned his position; Viranria Brown has become the first
woman to ever be named Vanuatu's High Commissioner to Fiji; Australia's men and women indigenous cricket teams
are in Vanuatu, with sound bites from Aussie team members; etc.); 0733 ("half past six"), with the weekend news
segment in Bislama (English sound bites - the Supreme Court voided the election of a member of Vanuatu's
Parliament, which has brought into question the role of the Vanuatu Electoral Commission and Vanuatu Electoral
Office in screening candidates for elections, etc.); 0804, the usual "Saturday night" show ("Customs and Culture").
As usual this harmonic was very readable!

Will do the same thing at 5006 kHz soon.

Also thanks for sending us the sound file. This is really helpful information. I will share the sound file with our

Good Day from the posh Gangnam district on Green Bay Wisconsin's fabulous east side!
I have an interesting post from the new, and unusual schedule from Radio Thailand.

Note that all programming ends one minute prior to the start of the next language service.
The carrier drops to dead air, antennas are switched then carrier back on.
Language services are region specific, so I used many different SDR's.

9940 Khz is the frequency of interest for today's report.

1155 UT Carrier on. 1200 English Weak/Barely readable via Taiwan.
Switched to Philippines which was much improved with 44444 SINPO.

1230 Vietnamese 44444 Philippines SDR

1245 Mandarin 44444 with some sight fading late. Philippines SDR

1300 Japanese *Heavy co-channel with Korean service from station in Japan which wiped out
RT so switched to SDR in Japan which both stations were at equal signal strength.
This issue needs to be resloved.

1315 Malay 55555 Indonesia SDR

1330 English Via Korea SDR which was the best overall in today's DX conquest.

More to come soon! Stay Tuned...

"BBC Singapore to close down on July 16, 2023"
https://alokeshgupta.blogspot.com/2023/07/bbc-singapore-to-close-down-on-july-16.html

For me, the only upside of BBC Singapore closing down on 9410 kHz. (1000-1200 UT) is that now I will have a
clear frequency to hear Taiwan's Fu Hsing BS. In the past the strong BBC signal was mostly blocking reception
of the much weaker Fu Hsing BS signal. Recently I have noted Taiwan on 15375 // 9774 // 9410 kHz., going off
the air at 1200*. Once BBC is gone, it will be interesting to find out just how good the Taiwan signal is

JAPAN. 8006 kHz., HFD Radio Station JG2XA, 1410 UT (11:10 PM JST), on July 15. CW IDs now given every 
10 minutes (formerly given every 2 minutes). 5006 kHz. remains with open carrier and no IDs yet. 200W
signal strength remains fairly decent. Brief audio clip attached. Ron (Calif.)

Thanks very much for the quick reply from Professor Hosokawa:

Thank you so much for sending the sound file of our Morse. It is really nice to hear that the Morse is clear
even in the west coast. We are interested in obtaining scientific data (i.e., received signal intensity or
Doppler frequency) from your place. If we can develop a small (and cheap) receiving probably using software
radios, that kind of measurement at a remote place would be possible.

When we start sending Morse at 5006 kHz, we will let you be informed of it.

Thanks,
Keisuke

Re: RRI Nabire Pro 1 heard again and R. Quillabamba clear of Cuba Ron Howard - Jul 17 (Mon), 2023 20:53 UTC No.5490

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, 0823 till past 1035+ UT, July 17. Not heard in over two weeks; very
pleased to tune in to hear their usual EZL music/songs; some announcers. Here are a few highlights:

0858-0905: Islamic Shalawat Tarhim prayer.

PERU. 5025, R. Quillabamba, 1040-1105 UT (7:40 PM JST), July 17. Wonderful to find a time period with no Cuba;
OA music/songs and announcers; 1105 hit with the strong start up of Cuba; not great reception, but still enjoyable
to find Cuba absent for a little bit. My music audio is at https://app.box.com/s/s0gc647qxogxndjjerg3j0fbbyeajwne .

Re: Please note low powered Australian on new 4970 kHz., etc. Ron Howard - Jul 29 (Sat), 2023 01:52 UTC No.5493

AUSTRALIA/UNID. 4970 kHz. Thanks very much to Bryan Clark for the tip for this new frequency for one
of the low powered stations! I could just make out an extremely faint carrier around 1000+ UT, on July 28,
but no hint of any audio; later, around my local sunrise (1310 UT), I had a much improved carrier, but still
not able to pull in any audio; it seems I will need outstanding propagation to be able to catch any audio here.
This is a new signal on this frequency. The new frequency is for Peter Tate's station that has a new license -
https://web.acma.gov.au/rrl/licence_image.extract_pdf?pLICENCE_NO=1989836/5 . Greatly appreciate
Bryan's alert! Certainly this frequency needs much more monitoring now!

CHINA. 6065, CNR2 (China Business Radio), 1330 UT, July 28. Continuing with BoH ID in English ("This is
C-N-R Business Radio"); // 6030, which was mixing with CNR1 DRM (poor frequency assignments); for many
years 6155 was my favorite CNR2 frequency to listen to, but that has been silent for a long time now.

6125, CNR1, 1219+ UT, July 28. Live coverage of the opening ceremony for the major sports event -
"Chengdu FISU Summer World University Games Opening Ceremony" [FISU/Federation Internationale
du Sport Universitaire]; YouTube with almost two hours of beautiful coverage -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lij9wR88vac . University students from across the entire world participate.

COLOMBIA. 5910, Alcaraván Radio, on July 28, during random checking, found them acting erratically;
0810, pop LA music with good audio; 0925, carrier only/dead air; 0955, music with good audio; 1031, no audio.

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, 0825 till cut off at 0915* UT, July 28. The usual EZL music/songs/
announcers/Islamic Shalawat Tarhim prayer/Maghrib (sunset) call-to-prayer. A good day here with decent reception.

MYANMAR. 5915, Myanmar Radio, 1400* UT, July 28. The usual brief indigenous theme music at closing; fair;
not // 5985.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 0955+ UT, July 28. What happened here? For quite a while I heard white
noise super jamming (North Korea?).

VIETNAM. 8294-USB, Ho Chi Minh Radio (presumed), *1305-1314* UT, July 28. Intro and exit tones; longer than
usual marine weather in Vietnamese; fair; a VISHIPEL coastal station. Informative information, along with several
pictures of the coastal stations operations - https://www2.jica.go.jp/en/evaluation/pdf/2008_VNVII-3_4_f.pdf .

Re: SIBC (5020) greatly extended broadcast and Australia (4970 kHz.) relay Ron Howard - Jul 29 (Sat), 2023 22:24 UTC No.5494

AUSTRALIA. 4970 kHz., relay of "Radio 567" (presumed), on July 29 - Same results today as heard yesterday;
at sunrise (1310 UT), heard with the strongest signal and again no audio detected. Peter Tate's station has been
relaying a local Wee Waa station ("Radio 567" - https://xrn.com.au/ ). I'm still waiting for the day with outstanding
propagation, so I can catch some audio!

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, 1206 to past 1410+ UT, July 29. No jamming today; heard well past the normal
1200* closing; all non-stop island songs, except at 1231 heard a definite announcer, so suspect was SIBC programming
and not a Wantok FM relay; mostly poor reception; propagation seemed less than ideal today. To Glenn Hauser, I cannot
remember the last time I heard SIBC on 9545 kHz., but many years ago I had good reception there -

Re: Australia (4970 kHz.) relay Ron Howard - Jul 30 (Sun), 2023 00:49 UTC No.5495
4970 kHz. - "Radio 567" - A reply to Ed Kusalik, from Peter Tate (operator of 4970), indicates:

"Station power is only 100 watts. I'm experimenting with different aerials."

So at 100W, that explains why I have so far been unable to make out any audio here on the West Coast,
but with the decent carrier strength heard at my local sunrise, it would seem to indicate the possibility
of receiving audio on a day with well above average propagation. Keep monitoring 4970 kHz.!

Ron

Re: SIBC (5020) greatly extended broadcast and Australia (4970 kHz.) relay Ron Howard - Jul 30 (Sun), 2023 15:29 UTC No.5496
AUSTRALIA. 4970 kHz., relay of "Radio 567" (presumed), on July 30. After finding SIBC with above average reception,
I thought it should be possible to hear some audio here. Yes, success! 1250-1312 UT, bits and pieces of music and
singing; the best reception was at 1255 & 1305, both with a longer stretch of singing, but too weak to tell the type of
music. Definitely a serious challenge to hear this station, but stateside reception is possible. My local sunrise was
at 1312 UT.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, on Sunday (July 30), another day of extended broadcasting; 1228-1245 & 1323
till still on the air after 1335+ UT; non-stop religious songs, mostly in English; much better propagation today. My
recording of one of the religious songs in English - https://app.box.com/s/p62b83xacjc9lj14punlt0oeg7iup2m5 .

AUSTRALIA. 4970, "Radio 567" (presumed), 1305-1335 UT, Aug 2. Another day of bits and pieces of hearing music; 
the best day so far, but still a little bit too weak to ID any songs. Not too bad for a 100w station!

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5920, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze/JSR, 1335 UT, Aug 2 (Wednesday); yes, another Wed. in English; very
poor reception due to N. Korea super jamming; // 6090 (good). What I find interesting is that recently when
Shiokaze moved here, at that time VOF was also on 5920, but they quickly moved up to their alternate frequency
of 6045; for three days now (July 31/Aug 1-2), VOF has been free of any jamming, so the super jamming has been
especially slow following VOF. Aug 3, super jamming finally moved from 5920 up to 6045.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, Aug 2. My audio of 1338-1340, end of the “Ulisoli hanmadang“ (Our sound
festival) program with indigenous music and 1340-1346, start of the "Sigan-yeohaeng, yeogsa tamheomdae"
(Time travel, history exploration party) program, presenting a drama -
https://app.box.com/s/trttoofgjzqb6quural6dllcs7aff2g6 ; fairly good reception. The next day (Aug 3), totally
covered by super jamming and pulsating noise jamming from N. Korea, so there were only three days here with VOF
with good reception; ex: 5920.

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, on Aug 2 with another day with greatly extended broadcast; 1240-1300 UT and still
on after 1355+; C&W and pop songs; The Allman Brothers Band - "Ramblin' Man," etc.; I enjoy these extended
programs as the reception after their normal closing time of 1200*, is so much better for me, as today my
local sunrise was at 1314.

Greetings, Amano, from California! Thanks for your observations. Sorry, am not sure what the "Radio 567" schedule is?

Aug 5 - SIBC continued with their new expanded schedule; randomly 1243 to past 1420+ UT; mostly pop island songs,
except at 1400, played the song by Kenny Rogers, "The Gambler"; almost fair reception.

Also today heard assume "Radio 567" on 4970, with by far the best reception heard so far; for the first time had positive,
continuous pop songs and a few brief spots that must have been IDs, but unable to confirm; 1303-1330 UT, Aug 5. My
local sunrise today was 1316 UT.

Hi Glenn - Yes, the pirate station on 6200 AM has indeed recently changed the programming to an all English 
and Japanese format. Am no longer hearing any Russian, so it would seem Radio Channel Eastern Star/Radio 
Vostochnaya Zvezda is no longer active. Heard now with many of the same spots being frequently repeated; 
some in English and others in Japanese, as well as songs in Japanese.

The new, regularly heard spot - "with today's story" about McDonald's - 
https://app.box.com/s/1s93vpkh7mdd6zmc5rgojinoluhscr77 .

Frequently now with the new ID: "You are listening to Hikair FM, the shortwave radio pirate station . . . 
broadcasting from Mexico. Light FM, shining a light on . . . broadcasting worldwide in English and Japanese. 
Hikair FM broadcast. Thank you for listening."
My audio from Aug 19 - https://app.box.com/s/sbb73yo5vfjkj7a9vmp0uhidytarpmd1 .

Song in Japanese, coming through heavy summertime QRN (static) -

- - - Thanks very much for the following informative reply to my Hikari FM (6200 AM) reception report of Aug 19.
Please note I was wrong, this pirate station still does have some Russian! Ron

"Thank you very much for your support!!
As of this email I have spent a little more time working on the audio.
Please note that some songs have the old Vostochnaya Zvezda ID still attached to them (they are part of the same
audio file). You will still hear some Russian, after all Russian was my first language.
13.95 still not up yet, lack of money, cannot afford the copper wire needed in the construction of the yagi while
the frame is just sitting there.
Also cannot afford to buy the improved version of the TX PCB I designed lol. I have to first put the modulator on
a PCB rather than it being a mess of wires like it is now. Yet it still sounds very good, almost like FM.
Here is an eQSL [copy at - https://app.box.com/s/840fokvf0foh4oll221ekynr0vx4ku3s ], my Japanese is not that great
yet.
When the summer time lightning crashing stops I plan to go on air and announce all the eQSLs I have sent as well as
do an SSTV session.
Best Regards."

Just back from a vacation to Canmore, Alberta, Canada. A very beautiful area with many mountains, millions of pine
trees and lots of lakes and rivers. https://app.box.com/s/uh123vgzow4fw3w9qi8r1uh7zcrxm5bm . Ron

VANUATU. 7260, Radio Vanuatu, 0634 till suddenly cut off at 0658* UT, Sept 16. Intro/closing with the usual indigenous
drums for the service messages segment in Bislama; rather a long segment today; started four minutes later than normal
(0634-0647); message gave Port Vila phone numbers "for more information" and then repeated the message for a second time,
which they usually do; into pop island songs.

3945, R. Vanuatu, *0659 UT; poorer reception than 7260; at 0700 with local time check ("six o'clock") and news in Bislama
till 0716, but was mostly unreadable; later was very poor; no harmonics (7890, nor 11835); unusual today to have no ads,
no PSAs, no promos before the news, but instead just island songs.

Also heard:

JAPAN. 5006 // 8006, HFD Radio Station JG2XA, 0910 & 0920, Sept 16. Station carrying out a HF-Doppler (HFD) project; for
the first time I heard 5006 also with the CW SAs; it has taken them a long time to add the second frequency with the CW
SA; the 200 watts are getting out fairly well.

The following were absent today:

Estación 4940 not heard at all (0720, 0804 and 0904 UT), Sept 16.

Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan) not heard on 15375, nor 9774, nor 9410 (clear frequency), at 0905 UT, Sept 16; recently had been
very consistent.

VANUATU. Radio Vanuatu with a new frequency of 9960; thanks to Glenn and Chris Mackerell for the timely alert

- - - Nice reply from Bryan Clark regarding Radio Vanuatu on new 9960 kHz.:

"Thanks Ron!

I set up my receiver to record 9960 from 0055 to catch an anticipated 0100 switch over, but when I popped
into the radio room at 0051 UTC 11 October they were already on!

We're off to Wellington in the morning, for the 75th anniversary celebrations for the NZ Radio DX League,
so I probably won't get another chance to check for them for a week. Will be visiting Titahi Bay where they
still have one of the two original 7.5kw HF transmitters that inaugurated Radio New Zealand on shortwave,
also 75 years ago!

Kind regards,
Bryan"

KOREA SOUTH. Voice of Freedom, on Oct 12, first day back again on alternate frequency of 6045; ex: 5920 today 
heard with North Korean super noise jamming and also rapid pulsating jamming; will probably take NK a day or
two to move up to this frequency, which was clear today; VOF heard today with an open carrier as early as 0705,
long before their sign on (*0753).

0900 UT (1800 JST): A single tone; "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo ohu 6 (yeoseos) sileul allyeodeulibnida" (In English -

Hi Ron-san.
Thank you for the information on changing the VOF frequency.
After changing the frequency, there is no jamming and you can listen comfortably.
I also listened to VOF in the morning Japan Standard Time.

At 2152 UT, I can hear well without any interference.
But, CNR2 on 6040 kHz started at 2155 UT and became difficult to hear due to interference.

Re: Korea: Sign-on of Voice of Freedom (6045) and new "V-O-H" SA for Echo of Hope Ron Howard - Oct 22 (Sun), 2023 11:05 UTC No.5517

KOREA SOUTH. 3985 // 5995 // 6350, Echo of Hope - VOH, 0900 UT, Oct 22 (Sunday). No longer with their signature
foghorn, but instead a new SA with "V-O-H"; believe it was back in 2018 that they last used "V-O-H" in their SA;
today followed with the "Oneul-ui sosig" segment (Today's news); good signal on 6350 and not jammed. The new SA
also noted at 0800. My audio of SA and news - https://app.box.com/s/mc0fq5vzshiyaqfrqms1kmsyfbfnhhzh .

For several years I had often enjoyed listening to Echo of Hope - VOH's weekday audio feed from a TV program called
"Wang cho bo yeong-eo" (translated into English - Beginner's English), which was produced by EBS English (Educational
Broadcasting System) and then on the weekend with the English language lesson of the reading of "Harry Potter and the
Sorcerer's Stone," both heard about 0725-0755 UT and repeated again four hours later. But now after several months of
monitoring, have found them no longer aired and with no English during that time period. They are missed!

Voice of Freedom, 6045, noted Oct 22 with the N. Korea super noise jamming not starting till after VOF signed on;
*0753 UT, heard with light NK pulsating noise jamming; intro music and distinctive gong rung three times; Voice of
Freedom SA; Republic of Korea choral National Anthem; super jamming started about 0756.

April 17 - First time I'm hearing Radio Vanuatu on harmonic 11835 kHz., which was // 3945 // harmonic 7890.
Underneath a stronger CNR2 (China Business Radio), but reception not too bad; without the Chinese QRM,
would have been RV best frequency; 0701+ UT, news about COVID-19. My audio of RV, mixing with CNR2, at
http://bit.ly/3es29zW .

3945kHz * 2 = 7890kHz
3945kHz * 3 = 11835kHz

3945kHz * 5 = 19725kHz ??

Re: VANUATU : Radio Vanuatu Mauno - Apr 17 (Fri), 2020 09:08 UTC No.4441
Shouldn't CNR2 still sign off at 0900 on 11835 kHz in April? But still on at 0910.

Re: VANUATU : Radio Vanuatu XYZ - Apr 17 (Fri), 2020 09:21 UTC No.4443
Hi Mauno,
According to the Aoki list, except on maintenance days :
CNR-2 11835kHz 0900-1300


sorry, *0000-1300* UTC

Re: VANUATU : Radio Vanuatu Mauno - Apr 17 (Fri), 2020 10:43 UTC No.4444
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?

Re: VANUATU : Radio Vanuatu Ron Howard - Apr 26 (Sun), 2020 09:33 UTC No.4464
This is now one of my favorite stations!

VANUATU. 11835 (harmonic), Radio Vanuatu, 0705+ UT, April 26. Another day with entertaining
reception; news (0704-0714) in vernacular (sound bite with Prime Minister speaking; Radio Vanuatu
providing programs for students home schooling; item about "Cyclone Harold"; etc.); fairly readable
with light CNR2 QRM; 0714-0730, playing Country & Western songs in English (Brad Paisley with
"This is Country Music," etc.); 0730+, chatting in vernacular; 7890, harmonic was poor, while 3945
had very faint audio (unusable).

My audio of five minutes of news, followed by C&W song, at http://bit.ly/2zxDMRx .

VANUATU. Radio Vanuatu with a new frequency of 9960; thanks to Glenn and Chris Mackerell for the timely alert
in WORiog; drove to the beach in time to catch 0656-0658* UT, on Oct 10. Fairly readable with promo for BBC on
104 FM in Port Vila, Visa debit card (both spots in English), etc.; about ten seconds to change frequency to 3945
(*0658) and into the news till 0718. My 9960 audio - https://app.box.com/s/qs3969bwxrdtio3mo222zkuoh2jpoh7x .

VANUATU. 9960, Radio Vanuatu, Oct 11, from 0525 through 0658* UT (1425-1558* JST); the usual programming; some of
the pop songs played today: Toto, "Africa," Alan Jackson, "Summertime Blues," Foreigner - "I Want To Know What
Love Is," etc.; 0630-0638, with intro/closing with the usual indigenous drums for the service messages segment;
today giving contact info for anyone entitled to any property or owed money from the estate of someone who recently
died in 2023. Reception up here is certainly better than 7260 and infinitely better than 3945.

My audio: https://app.box.com/s/10joaf3zop71d0ts21bxybft7v9ql7f6 :
- Indigenous drums ending the service messages segment.
- Announcement for a job opening, in English.
- Promo in Bislama for TV coverage of the quarter finals of the Rugby World Cup.
- Singing station SA ("Radio Vanuatu . . Kingdom of Tonga . . Solomon Islands . . Voice of Papua New Guinea . .
Radio Vanuatu")

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(29) :: [2023] Ron Howard - Jan 03 (Tue), 2023 10:36 UTC No.5258
January 3 (Tuesday) observations:

3945 (ex 7260), R. Vanuatu, after Glenn Hauser's notification to Adrian Sainsbury (thanks to Glenn!), RV moved
here to get away from Mongolia (absent tonight); fundamental frequency (3945) being the only usable signal that
I had; while // 7890, 2nd harmonic was unusable, as was the 3rd harmonic on 11835. Reception on the former 7260
was infinitely better for me!

6300-USB, UNID, at 0808 UT; the usual reciting from the Qur'an.

7260, No Mongolia 0830+ UT and no Vanuatu.

7780, VOI - Channel II English relay via WRMI; mostly pop songs, but at 0812 UT, with world weather; good
reception. Interested to note on Jan 1, ending the news at 0804 UT with "I'll be back in an hour," as I do believe
VOI - Channel II is completely in English, unlike VOI - Channel I that airs many different languages, in one hour
segments.

9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, at 0753 UT, ending the audio feed from a TV program called "Wang cho bo yeong-eo"
(translated into English - Beginner's English); with presenters "Mayu" and "Mini"; exit theme song is the "Party Will
Come Alive" by Wizardz Of Oz (with Ruben Martinez); // 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348.0 kHz.

Re: 2023 VOF Program Guide. Amano - Jan 05 (Thu), 2023 15:20 UTC No.5266
KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 0855-0900 UT, Jan 3. 
North Korean jamming interferes.
After "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng" (Let's go music together),
the 2023 VOF Program Guide was broadcast.
My audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4838.mp3 .

* 00:00-00:34 2023 VOF Program Guide opening.
* 00:34-00:48 Male : "Haengboghan Daehanmingug" (Happy Republic of Korea).
* 00:48-00:58 Female : “Salang-i neomchineun ulijib“ (My home full of love).
* 00:58-01:19 Male : “Kkumkkuneun cheongchungeug“ (Dreaming youth drama).
* 01:19-01:34 Female : "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng" (Let's go music together).
* 01:34-01:48 Male : "Ma-eum-e swimpyo" (Resting heart)
* 01:48-02:04 Female : "Maeil geudaewa" (Everyday with you).
* 02:04-02:16 Male : “Ulisoli hanmadang“ (Our sound festival).
* 02:16-02:33 Female : "Sigan-yeohaeng, yeogsa tamheomdae" (Time travel, history exploration party).
* 02:33-02:49 Male : "Dodbogilo boneun sesang" (The world through a magnifying glasses).
* 02:49-03:02 Female : "Hanminjog tong-illo milaelo" (Korean people, to unity, to the future).
* 03:02-03:21 Male : "Hanla-eseo Baegdukkaji" (From Halla to Baekdu).
* 03:21-03:34 Female : "Bodo gwangjang" (News plaza).
* 03:34-03:47 Male : "Nalssi Jeonmangdae" (Weather Observatory).
* 03:47-04:04 Female : "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is power).
* 04:04-04:24 Male : “Ingwon baloalgi“ (Getting to know human rights).
* 04:24-05:00 2023 VOF Program Guide ending.
* 05:00-05:40 0600 JST/KST, VOF SJ, and "Bodo gwangjang" (News plaza).

It is unknown how long the 2023 VOF Program Guide will be broadcast.
It will be broadcast after the end of "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng" and "Maeil geudaewa".
I think the scheduled broadcast time is below.

* 0855-0900 UTC, after "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng".
* 1045-1050 UTC, after "Maeil geudaewa".
* 1645-1650 UTC, after "Maeil geudaewa".
* 1755-1800 UTC, after "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng".
* 1900-1905 UTC, after "Maeil geudaewa".
* 2355-0000 UTC, after "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng".
* 0255-0300 UTC, after "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng".

What a nice surprise to find Nick Hacko on the air today.  Heard on 5045 kHz., from tune in at 0815 till 0843 UT,
with some easy-listening songs and many SAs ("You are tuned to Radio DX transmitting from Norfolk Island
on five point zero four five megahertz"); noted the transmitter on and off at the following times:

Tune-in at 0815-0818*; *0819-0824*; *0826-0828*; *0836-0943* UT.

Attached is my brief audio of the SA and some nice music. A low powered station!

Re: 200W Radio DX Norfolk Island (5045) upcoming test Jan 13 UT Ron Howard - Jan 13 (Fri), 2023 01:48 UTC No.5284
Radio DX Norfolk Island (5045) upcoming on-air test Jan 13 UT (0730-0830) !!!

- - - posted to WORiog:

Again, this is the second 'new antenna' test on 5.045 MHz, commencing half an hour before my
local sunset and continuing half an hour past sunset. UTC: 07:30 - 08:30.
The signal should be easily picked up by ZL SDR as well as Hawaii. Don't tune into Australian
receivers, Norfolk Island is 1,700 km east of Australian mainland (full daylight) but only 1000 km
west of New Zealand, which will be already in darkness.
Expectation: if my predictions are correct, the signal should be audible (to some degree) in California,
British Columbia and Alaska.
Also, the carrier itself should be visible in south-west Europe, Spain-France-England via long path,
with the peak around 08:00 UTC.
Unfortunately this is the only slot available for this evening. The programming content same as previously:
Glenn's ID announcements and a few light songs. The transmission will be intermittent, so expect carrier
to disappear for a few minutes. I really want to give you an opportunity to easily identify RadioDX and
request QSL card.
For European listeners: there will be another 2 hours test in coming days, with planned slot 16:30-18:30 at
my sunrise. This path has been tested over and over again on 80m band so you will have a decent chance
to actually hear some audio as well. I don't have the day yet, so please keep an eye for announcement on
WOR group.A big thank you to all who tuned in previously, your feedback is always appreciated. 
Current setup: 200W into vertical antenna.

Re: 200W Radio DX Norfolk Island (5045) Ron Howard - Jan 13 (Fri), 2023 10:59 UTC No.5285
Reception of Radio DX (5045 kHz.) was similar to that heard on the 11th.
Signal was better tonight than Radio 4KZ's on 5055 kHz., which was unusable.

Radio DX:
*0723* UT: Briefly with an open carrier.
*0724 through 0730: On-off-on, etc. with Glenn Hauser's SAs (tonight definitely able to make out his voice).
0730-0825*: Start of music; on-off-on, etc. with the same singer as heard on the 11th and many SAs.

INDONESIA[and non]. 7289.96, RRI Nabire, 0750-0855* UT, on Jan 12; played a lot of EZL songs and some announcers;
cut off before getting to the Islamic segment.

7780, VOI (Channel Two) relay via WRMI, 0802+, on Jan 11; in English with the news, ending with the usual patriotic song
“Bagimu Negeri”; DJ with "Indonesia Today" and playing many western style pop songs. Clearly they are not relaying the
VOI Channel One programming, as heard over 3325 kHz. Have never heard any OTH radar on 7780.

KOREA SOUTH. 5857.5 (stronger in USB, weaker in LSB), HLL2 Seoul, 0900-0923* UT, Jan 12 & 13. Am continuingly

VANUATU. Radio Vanuatu. On Jan 22, had the 2nd harmonic (7890 kHz.) slightly better than the 3rd harmonic (11835 kHz.):

1002-1009 UT: News/sports in Bislama. After which they played a variety of songs (pop, religious [it was
Sunday!], etc.).

1031-1057: The usual religious (Christian) preaching; ending with "Thank you Lord" for many different things.

1057-1101: Religious songs; 1101, SA and frequencies given in Bislama; 1102-1103, instrumental version
of their National Anthem, titled "Yumi, Yumi, Yumi" ("We, We, We"); 1103-1110+: Open carrier (dead air).

The fundamental frequency (3945 kHz.) was very poor and unusable.

After that I checked out the following:

PERU. I was pleased to note Cuba was silent as early as 0930 UT on 5025; later making reception possible of
R. Quillabamba at 1112 UT, with a series of clear SAs and playing music; weak, but without Cuban QRM, was
enjoyable reception.

language lesson with the reading from a portion of chapter ten from "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," (all
about playing "Quidditch"), along with lengthy explanations in Korean. This program is just aired on the weekend.
Frequencies were not changed last Monday, but have stayed the same for several weeks. What will happen

Voice of Freedom, 5920, with the start of the "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is power) program at 1130 UT.

t used to be heard well in the past, but now the Cuban station is strong and
it is a broadcast that is difficult to receive in Japan.
When I was young, I received a pennant from the same station. 
It was a very happy memory.

http://www.radioquillabamba.com/web/
Speaking in Spanish was very difficult.
Some announcers pronounced it as "Radio QUI-JA-BAMBA", while others pronounced it as "RADIO QUI-YA-BAMBA".
Listening to their livestream broadcast, I realized.

> 4835kHz Who is faintly audible at 4835kHz ? , very weak signal at my location...

Greetings from California! Almost daily I hear a carrier on 4835 kHz., but only occasionally do I hear any audio.
Is a low powered Australian station, which last July 2022, was just running 200W. Here is my July 2022 log and the
email reply:

AUSTRALIA. 4835, "Shortwave Australia," 1317-1403 UT, July 16, 2022. Just after my sunrise (1301 UT), I was
pleasantly surprised to actually hear some faint audio; the non-stop music heard today was of a type that made for
not very distinctive reception details, as it was easy-listening music (soft, slow tempo, etc.), but noted with the
following details:

1317-1338: Non-stop easy-listening instrumental music.
1338-1351: Non-stop easy-listening songs.
1351-1403: Back to non-stop easy-listening instrumental music, with no break at the top-of-the hour.
Was too weak to make out any ID or announcements (see below); audio heard today was just bits and pieces.

Today I found the overall propagation to be fairly poor. On a good day, perhaps it will be possible to really
pull in an ID and in the future if Dave increases the power over the current 200w, then maybe some decent
reception. Today was a definite DX challenge! Ron (California log from 2022)

- - - Reply from David Stuart < vk3ase@yahoo.com > (July 16, 2022):

"Thanks for the report, when the ABC ran the station they had 50kw and I run 200w so no wonder you find it
hard to hear. It covers the south eastern part of Australia ok. Apart from any live input  I run an identification
announcement every 10 mins that should over ride the program material, At the moment the indents are
computer generated and of female voices from the windows 10 read aloud library, I have them reading in
various English accents to make it more interesting so if you record more than 10 mins you should get one.
I was in Hawaii in 2016 and heard the ABC on 4835 booming in and 2310 was ok as well. I have seen a trace
of my signals on US sdr's but to week to hear. What would be the best time for you to listen, last night I went
off about 1am our time, For the last hour or so was playing a dream time program with relaxing electronic music
and did make an announcement when I closed. The content of the automatic announcements at the  moment is.
"This is Shortwave Australia broadcasting to the inland and the islands on 4835 kilocycles day time and evening
as well as  2310 kilocycles night time" or words to that effect. Let me know of any more results."

Great !! Thanks Ron-san !!!

Today, the conditions in the south are good, so maybe Japanese DXers can also receive it.

CHINA. Voice of Strait still silent on 4940, with 4900 only with a very abbreviated schedule. Today (Jan 24)
noted 1147 till cut off mid-song at 1301* UT (same noted on Jan 21, from 1145 till cut off at 1301* UT).

KOREA NORTH[non]. Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, 5930 // 7280, with a different schedule for some reason. TUESDAY
(Jan 24), in ENGLISH, from tune in at 1302+ UT; the same program repeated 1330-1400. Reading a RFA article
about Korean War soldiers finally IDed, killed 73 years ago in the war. What will their Wednesday program be?
In the past was always in English, not on Tuesday!

TAIWAN. 9774 // 9410 (strong QRM), Fu Hsing BS, still on the air at 1140 UT, Jan 24!! Believe they went
off about 1200; long past their normal 0900*. Their // 15375, was not heard.

Jan 25 (Wednesday) observations:

Voice of Strait, 4940 remains absent; 4900, still heard from tune in at 1246 till off at 1301* UT.

Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, 5930 // 7280, in KOREAN; not the usual English; from tune in at 1303+ UT.

9774 // 9410 (doing well today against the QRM), Taiwan; playing mostly EZL songs till 1200* UT.

Also noted today:

AUSTRALIA. 4835, "Shortwave Australia," 1346-1406 UT; a good day with faint audio of mostly EZL songs
and occasional announcer (assume IDs); Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan) has also recently heard this (still
200W?) station.

BANGLADESH[and non]. 4750, Bangladesh Betar, 1312 UT; test tone till 1313, IS; 1315, time pips and into
assume Napali and subcontinent music; mixing with CODAR and CNR1; unable to hear VOI (Indonesia) on
4749.95, while 3325 (VOI) was mostly just a carrier today.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, heard a reactivated program, which was last heard in 2018; thanks
to the astute monitoring of Amano (Japan), who first noted the return of this former program, that I
would never have recognized on my own:

"KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 1215-1230, Jan 12.

15-minute program (Everyday broadcast).
The program name is
Korean : 인권 바로알기
Korean reading : Ingwon baloalgi.
In English : Getting to know human rights.
In Japanese : 人権を正しく知る

The schedule for this program is
1215-1230 UTC,
1515-1530 UTC,
2225-2240 UTC.
*Everyday broadcast.

My audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4847.mp3 .

Hi Ron-san - Thank you for checking out the VOF revival program "Ingwon baloalgi".
This is a very useful reception report.
At this location, this time is skipped and the signal is weak, so it is not possible to receive clean audio.

INDONESIA. 7289.94, RRI Nabire Pro 1, from 0740 till cut off in mid-song at 0848* UT (5:48* PM JST), Jan 27.
The usual format of mostly EZL songs, with an occasional announcer in Bahasa Indonesia (have never heard English
here!); if they are indeed only 1kW, then reception was not too bad. Brief audio attached from today of their
typical EZL music.

Hi Komatsubara - Yes, it was a very good day (Jan 30) for RRI Nabire and Radio Vanuatu reception!

Tuned into Radio Vanuatu (11835 kHz. - 3rd harmonic) for the news/sports/weather in Bislama (0702-0718 UT);

CHINA. 4900, Voice of Strait, -1140-1301* UT, on Jan 30.
Before 1200, an out-of-season Christmas song played.
After 1200, I confirmed the SA and the program name.
As with Komatsubara's check, this was a Chinese language program, not a Amoi (Minnan) language program.
* Please refer to https://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:5325 .
(4940 kHz, no signal.)

The SA is
Simplified Chinese : 海峡之声广播电台

Chinese reading : Hai-xia zhi sheng guang-bo dian-tai.
In English : Voice of Strait.

The program name is

Hi Komatsubara - Very nice to find out we were listening at the same time!

RRI Nabire Pro 1 (7289.94 kHz.) recently doing fairly well, as they were tonight.

Feb 1 - Heard from 0820 till CNR1 signed on at 0930 UT; anomaly today with no RRI announcers; just non-stop
EZL songs (some pop songs partially in English - "Stuck On You" and "Every Breath you Take") till 0904, when
they switched to playing Islamic flavored songs till the 0913-0924 Islamic segment with the Shalawat Tarhim
prayer and the Maghrib (sunset) prayer; followed by more EZL songs till blocked by a strong China signal.

Hi Komatsubara and Ron-san

Ron-san
Thank you for the VOF’s QSY information, and the beautiful VOF reception audio before North Korean jamming moved.
I have listened to all the audio of the VOF you attached.
What a great audio!
Thanks to Ron-san's VOF program check, it was proved that there was no mistake in the schedule I checked.
I am very happy right now!!

Heard on Jan 29, on 6035, "Yunnan Radio International" (PBS Yunnan), 1353 UT; playing their IS
(non-stop EZL instrumental music) till 1400, when they gave their usual multi-language SAs;
attached audio with nice clear "Yunnan Radio International," then into Chinese programming.

Today (Feb 3) noted VOS (4900 kHz.) cut off shortly after the top-of-the-hour time pips, at 1301* UT,
as they have been recently observed doing, with their very abbreviated broadcasting.

Have also be interested to note Echo of Hope - VOH (S. Korea), has NOT changed frequencies since before 
Jan 12. Checked today; still on 3985 // 4885 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350 // 9100 kHz. (1330+ UT today). So
will VOH now become like VOP and remain unchanged all the time? 

Voice of the People still keeps to their long standing unchanged frequencies on 3480 // 3910 // 3930 //
4450 // 4560 (this, their newest frequency, starts much later than any of the others!) // 6520 // 6600 kHz.

DX Gangnam Style. Christopher Lehner - Feb 09 (Thu), 2023 16:22 UTC No.5360
After seeing the new EOH/VOP Schedule as of 06 February, I thought I'd give these frequencies
a try.

Kharbarovsk, Russia SDR: UTC Thursday 09 Feb.

Echo of Hope: 0132 UT 9100 kHz SINPO of 44444. Music and male and female presenter
speaking in Korean. More music at 0135.
5995 kHz 0137 much weaker signal gave it a 33223.
6250 kHz 0139 signal is JBA. I am hearing the "Slot Machine" out of Japan also what I perceive
as some noise jamming.
6350 kHz 0143 JBA hearing a female presenter in Korean.
4885 and 3985 No Signal.

Voice of the People: The only two functional frequencies; 6520 at 0146 JBA I am hearing some
jamming.
6600 kHz at 0151 Weak/Readable music with male vocals. Jamming is JBA.

The real winner for this DX session was Echo of Hope on 9100 kHz.
0154 UT with English and some Korean. A good, listenable signal. Male and female presenters
talking about meanings and definitions of English words. If I'm not mistaken, the two
presenters sound very much like the hosts from Arirang Radio that I listen to on Sirius XM
satellite radio in my vehicle. Could there be some connection between Arirang and EOH?
0157 heard the "foghorn" with a male presenter speaking Korean.

Other locations that I tried 9100 kHz. Shinhidaka, Hokkaido Japan SDR had a reliable signal
with some fading. Kyoto Japan SDR had probably the cleanest signal yielding SINPO of 44444.

0258 UT headed to Southeast Asia via the Cha-Am SDR in Thailand to catch RTI Taipei, Taiwan
English service 15320 kHz 0300 sign on. Conditions were noisy and degrading rather quickly with
hard fades at 0308 UT.
Bangkok Thailand SDR was also fading with noise as was the Hanoi Vietnam SDR.

Best To All!

Re: DX Gangnam Style. Ron Howard - Feb 09 (Thu), 2023 23:12 UTC No.5362
Hi Chris,

Greetings from California. Excellent to see someone else enjoying the Korean stations, especially from
the States and welcome to Komatsubara's wonderful DX site that I frequently check to find out what is
happening with Asian DX.

Echo of Hope - VOH, is currently enjoying an anomaly, as it was before Jan 12 that they last changed
frequencies. For a very long time they slightly switched frequencies every Monday, but not so since Jan
12. Now they are just like the Voice of the People, with unchanging frequencies.

You might be interested to know that Echo of Hope - VOH, actually has several programs partially in
English, which I often enjoy.

On weekdays, VOH has English language lessons from about 1125 to 1155 UT and is a EBS TV audio feed
for "Wang cho bo yeong-eo"; intro and exit theme song is with the very distinctive "Party Will Come
Alive," by the Wizardz Of Oz/Ruben Martinez - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOnHJJUOuDI ; the usual
intro has announcer saying "English trainer" and giving his name ("Mayu"), then the woman announcer
says her name ("Mini"); I love listening to "Mini," as she is so very animated!! It is mostly in Korean,
but definitely an English lesson. Brief audio attached.

During the weekend, VOH during that same time period has a different program, with the reading of the
"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" story in English, with lengthy explanations in Korea and again is
with a lot of Korean, but definitely the Harry Potter story.

Also VOH has a program with Choi Soo-jin's "Morning Special," with news headlines in English and explaining
words in Korean ( https://home.ebs.co.kr/morning/etc/164/htmlMenu ), starting about 1240+ UT. The news is
actually old news (a week old or so!) and is more of a language lesson than a news program.

Please note VOH is on a four hour program loop. Programs are repeated again every 4 hours!

Greetings, Komatsubara, from San Francisco. Am here till the weekend, when I will return again to
Monterey and Asilomar State Beach. Sorry to learn about Japan having so much snow. I am very
fortunate that I do not get any snow along the coast during the winter, as the temperatures do
not often get down to below 4.4°C (40 °F) and the summers are also fairly mild.

https://app.box.com/s/qmh14gycrk7igz3k7yswkyv8zvg2svzm contains a Feb 6 picture of a rainbow,
just across the street from where I DX at Asilomar State Beach.

Recently I have been observing Voice of Turkey causing QRM for Myanmar Radio on 5985 kHz., after
1500+ UT. In the past it was difficult to make out the English from 1530+ UT, due to the accent of the
announcer, but now it is almost impossible with QRM to understand the news on Myanmar Radio.

Re: Australia, Korea and Myanmar/Turkey Ron Howard - Feb 13 (Mon), 2023 19:01 UTC No.5372


My February 13 (Monday) observations:

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Bay Islands Radio/Island FM (presumed to be them!), thank you Komatsubara for the alert!!
Heard what must be this station. I had not heard it for quite a while and assume they have been off the air;
tuned in at 1233 UT, to an extremely weak signal, with very faint singing; random listening; after 1415 the
signal started to slightly improve heading towards my sunrise at 1457 UT and able to confirm playing pop songs;
finally at 1531, was able to ID Ritchie Valens with distinctive "La Bamba" (the only song I could ID); still
on the air at 1545. This will certainly be a problem for reception of Nick's "Radio DX" also on frequency.
Some QRM from China on 5050. Needs more monitoring to determine if they are back to daily broadcasting?
 
KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, has NOT changed frequencies for a month now; heard at 1316 UT with an
anomaly of not as much jamming as usual; 5995 // 6250 // 6350 and 9100, were all fair-good with no jamming and
3985 // 4885 were poor with jamming. VOP, with the usual 3480 // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 4560 // 6520 // 6600 kHz.

Voice of Freedom, 6045, at 1325 UT, with “Ulisoli hanmadang“ (Our sound festival) program of indigenous music;
I rather enjoy this unique music and today heard it with an exceptionally strong signal. My six minute audio is
posted at https://app.box.com/s/h0cxh8nwe6ue33laaasatni5sfb6m9c4 . At 1600 the good VOF reception was killed by
the start of a strong signal from Furusato no kaze.

MYANMAR/TURKEY. 5985, Myanmar Radio. For a long time Myanmar has had sole possession of this frequency
from 1500-1600 UT, but that is no longer so. Voice of Turkey causing serious QRM for MR today after 1500+ UT;
in the past was difficult for me to make out the news in English at 1530 from Myanmar, due to the announcers
accent, but now with the QRM I can only make out very few bits and pieces. Rather a sad development for me,
as I often enjoyed decent MR reception in the past. Brief audio attached.

Yes, it seems he is indeed back with daily transmissions. Heard for three consecutive days!

Feb 15 - From 1415 to 1510 UT; much better reception today from Shannon Shuttleworth's station on
Russell Island (not too far from Brisbane, Queensland); non-stop pop songs (Cilla Black - "Alfie,"
The Police - "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," etc.); never any announcers; my local sunrise
was at 1455 UT, which helps account for the descent reception.

Even at my location I was able to confirm the signal until night.
Unfortunately, it was difficult to confirm because the sound was not very clear last night.

> https://onlineradiobox.com/au/island88/?cs=au.island88&played=1
I'm listening to their live broadcast right now, and it seems like they're playing pop non-stop.
Does this live broadcast and 5045kHz match ?


I will aim for 5045kHz again tonight ! :D:D:D

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(29) :: [2023] Ron Howard - Feb 16 (Thu), 2023 03:44 UTC No.5380
Greetings, Komatsubara, from California.

So far, Nick's transmissions on 5045 kHz., from Norfolk Island, have just been tests. He has not
started regular transmissions yet. Believe he wants to get a better, more powerful transmitter.
I think that what we heard during the recent tests, with the frequent on and off and on again,
was due to overheating of the transmitter, so he is only doing a few random tests.

Bay Islands Radio, had been heard in the past, but seemed to have be off the air for quite some
time, so it was great to see your reports of hearing a station on 5045, other than Nick's. When I
DX at the beach, while in my car, I have no Internet connection, so unfortunately am unable to
check for // programming. Am fairly certain that the format of non-stop pop songs is consistent
with the Bay Islands Radio format. I have sent Shannon Shuttleworth an email inquiring about
what his station's power is and hope he will reply.

Here are a few recent observations:

On 7260 kHz., seemed to have Mongolia and Vanuatu mixing together, at 1010 UT, on Feb 14, as
you also noted. RV had National Anthem 1100-1101* UT and later, about 1145, seemed to be China
and Mongolia mixing together.

Taiwan on 9410 (QRM) // 9774, noted 1159* UT (8:59* PM JST), on Feb 14. No 15375 heard.

Korea:
Voice of the People with good signal on 4560 kHz., 1255 UT, on Feb 14, pop song; at 1300, with
news (Bodo). My audio of one minute of music, then bodo, is at http://bit.ly/3S4co1t .

KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on 6015, from 1200+ UT, with the News at Nine (9:00 PM in Seoul), on
Feb 14; the audio feed from the TV show (YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOTQYFjGSws );
frequent "K-B-S News" SAs; moderate jamming.

China:
Heard Beibu Bay Radio (5050) this morning (1516-1518 UT - Feb 15), with brief, daily spot in English;
"Today's keyword is trademark," statistics from the Trademark Office of the China National Intellectual
Property Administration (audio attached). http://wcjs.sbj.cnipa.gov.cn/home?locale=en_US&locale=en_US
Please note WRMI is now on 5050 kHz., believe from 2300 to 0500 UT.

Yunnan Radio International (6035) running late Feb 15; after 1500 UT (the end of their programming) they
start their EZL instrumental music IS loop; today noted cut off at 1549* UT.

The following might be of interest. Very little about SW. There is a section titled "External broadcast,"
without even mentioning SW at all, but still an interesting reference piece.

Re: Korea: National Unity Radio with Chinese language lesson Ron Howard - Feb 16 (Thu), 2023 18:28 UTC No.5381

KOREA SOUTH. 5900, National Unification Broadcasting - National Unity Radio, at 1147 UT, on Feb 16. Brief
Chinese language lesson; mostly in Korean, with a few Chinese words and a sentence; program starts with the
very distinctive theme song by Joyce Chu, a popular Malaysian singer and songwriter, singing "Hao xiang ni -
I Miss You“ (YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdQgPu3iUYk ); some jamming, but not bad; Website
at http://www.uni-media.net/ .

Had a native speaker of Chinese listen to the lesson. Her comments:

"It's a very bad Chinese lesson, the speaker speaks in wrong tones, so I didn't immediately understand what
she was talking about. The lesson is a question "what's your cell phone number?"

nide (your) shouji (cell phone) hao (number) shi (is) duoshao (what)?

nide shouji hao shi duoshao? 你的手机号是多少?"

I've been listening to kiwiSDR this morning, but there were only happy pops and no announcements.
Even so, the selection of songs that match our age is very good!

I have confirmed that the broadcasts playing on the live broadcast site do not match what is playing at 5045kHz.

JAPAN. 5006 & 8006, HFD Radio Station JG2XA, 1135 UT, on Feb 16; station carrying out a HF-Doppler (HFD) project;
in the past, their 60W signal was never strong, but today was heard with an unusually good signal (open carrier),
so I sent off an email inquiring if there was something new happening.

Received the following reply in just eight minutes from Professor Keisuke Hosokawa at the University of Electro -
Communications ( keisuke.hosokawa@uec.ac.jp ):

"Thanks for your message. Yes, now we are replacing the Tx system here in Tokyo. It's still in a testing phase,
but the transmission power is 200 W for both the 5M and 8M bands though we are still working on adding Morse.
The new system has been tested since Jan 17 this year."

foghorn at 0803. Still with a four hour program loop. 

1126 - Starting with "he was missing, too, from Important Modern Magical Discoveries, and A Study of Recent
Developments in Wizardry. And then, of course, there was the sheer size of the library; tens of thousands of
books; thousands of shelves; hundreds of narrow rows . . ."; the usual good reception at 1126, while earlier

My February 27 observations:

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Bay Islands Radio relay of Island FM, am able to establish it suddenly started at *0839 UT,
in mid-song; playing a lot of hard rock music as well as familiar older songs (Beatles - "Revolution," Michael
McDonald - "Higher Ground," theme music from Miami Vice, Jackie Wilson - "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher And
Higher," The Beatles - Come Together," etc.); QRM started about 0940, which I at first thought might be Nick
testing his "Radio DX," but upon reflection realized it must have been QRM from China (5050); announcers with
occasional brief IDs and one sounding like a PSA; tuned out 1050. Another day of nicely above threshold level
reception!

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire, 0805-0814* UT, again with non-stop EZL songs and today heard announcer; cut off
in mid-song!

SOLOMON ISLANDS[non-log]. 5020, SIBC - Voice of the Nation, back on the air today.

VANUATU. 7260, R. Vanuatu, 0800 UT; local time check and scheduling for upcoming programs; not very readable.

VANUATU. 7260, Radio Vanuatu:

Feb 28 - From 0742+ UT; tuned in to hear emergency sirens followed by multi-language cyclone warnings
for Tropical Cyclone Judy and advising people to have plenty of water, food for 2 to 3 days, have candles,
batteries, etc. due to electricity possibly being off for several days, and for information, listen to TV, Radio
Vanuatu and check the Internet; followed by more sirens; 0750, the usual advertisement for the "mobile
stage" for events in Vanuatu and PSA for mental health; 0831, more sirens and cyclone warning/advisories.

March 2 - From 1002+ UT; emergency sirens and advising people to listen to TV, Radio Vanuatu and the
Internet for the latest cyclone info; 1007-1017, sounded like the Prime Minister's speech to the the nation
(poor audio quality); 1026, "Tropical Cyclone Warning Number 4" for cyclone Kevin, giving location, direction

Thank you, Amano, for the updated Wai FM info. Yes, definitely with a better signal and audio!! Ron

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, 3985 // 4885 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350 // 9100, at 1136 UT, March 4 (Saturday);
the weekend only program of the English language lesson with the continued reading of a portion of Chapter
12 of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," along with lengthy explanations in Korean; as usual 9100 with
very good reception (not jammed). Has been about seven weeks now since VOH last changed any frequencies!

Voice of the People remains with their long standing unchanged frequencies on 3480 // 3910 // 3930 // 4450
// 4560 // 6520 // 6600, at 1105, March 4.

Voice of Freedom, on 5920 kHz., on March 4, with fairly good reception:

1115 UT - "Dodbogilo boneun sesang" (The world through a magnifying glasses)
1130 - "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is power)
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.

MALAYSIA. 11665, Wai FM, 1043-1057 UT, March 4. Well above the norm and no longer with the long standing poor audio
(crackling sounds and echo audio), so they must have repaired the transmitter! From 1057+, very strong QRM from 11660,
with VOA and CNR1 jamming. 9835 (Sarawak FM) remains silent since early Nov. 2022. Thanks to Amano (Japan) for this
week pointing out the improved signal and audio.

VANUATU. Radio Vanuatu[non-log] on March 3, from 1030+ UT, unable to find any RV signal on any of their usual
frequencies; tropical cyclone Kevin was having a very strong impact on the Port Vila area about this time. Gary
Pence (WORiog) earlier, at 0939, reported RV on 3945 and harmonics.

Radio Vanuatu, 7260, from 1005 to 1030 UT, March 4; on the air again with news till 1017, seemed to be a long
interview about the weather situation on Vanuatu(?); the usual RV promo after the news; much weaker than normal
and mostly unreadable.

Re: Korea: Echo of Hope - VOH on a new, seventh frequency (7640 kHz.) Ron Howard - Mar 07 (Tue), 2023 17:58 UTC No.5411
Greetings from California! Thank you so very much, Komatsubara, for the great info about VOH on 7640 !! Ron

KOREA SOUTH: Echo of Hope - VOH, heard on 4885 // 6250 // 9100 kHz., at 0730 UT, March 5 (Sunday), continuing
from where they left off yesterday, with the weekend reading of a portion of Chapter 12 of "Harry Potter and
the Sorcerer's Stone," along with lengthy explanations in Korean.

March 7 - Echo of Hope - VOH. Just as the Voice of the People recently added a new, seventh frequency (4560),
now VOH has also added a new, seventh frequency on 7640 kHz. to their list of active frequencies (3985 // 4885
// 5995 // 6250 // 6350 // 7640 // 9100 kHz.), as first noted by Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), back on Feb 26.
Today (March 7) was the first day I have heard it, so I believe they have either been intermittently testing
this frequency since Feb or it has been on at different times than when I usually listened for it?

Today hear from tune in at 1533 UT till the end of the weekday only program at 1552; heard with the audio feed
from a TV program called "Wang cho bo yeong-eo" (translated into English - Beginner's English); with presenters
"Mayu" and "Mini"; and ending with the usual intro and exit theme song - "Party Will Come Alive" by Wizardz Of
Oz (with Ruben Martinez); reception on the new frequency was very good. My audio is attached.

INDONESIA[and non]. 7289.93, RRI Nabire, 0809 till blocked by start up of CNR1 at 0930 UT, March 9. The usual format
of mostly easy-listening songs till 0900, when the music became sounding more like Islamic/Middle East type songs; the
Shalawat Tarhim prayer (0909-0916), which was written and recited for the first time in 1959 and is given before the
call-to-prayers; followed 0916-0919, with the Maghrib (sunset) Islamic call-to-prayer; 0919+, more EZL songs; 0929,
perhaps an ID (poor quality audio attached). Thanks again to Tony Ashar for the initial info about the Shalawat Tarhim
prayer. Much appreciated!

March 9 had the following five Islamic call-to-prayer times for Nabire:

Fajr -  dawn           04:50 (1950 UT)
Dhuhr - after midday   12:12  (0312 UT)
Asr - afternoon        15:14  (0614 UT)
Maghrib - sunset       18:16  (0916 UT)
Isha'a - nighttime     19:25  (1025 UT)

March 8 - RRI Nabire cut off at 0844* UT.

WRMI relay of the Voice of Indonesia (Channel Two), on 7780, at 0805 UT, March 9; in English; the end of the
patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri,” played after the news; into their daily "Indonesia Today" program; today is
"National Music Day" in Indonesia and they played local songs. Was surprised last week to catch an ID here
mentioning VOI heard over 3325. Certainly 3325 VOI carries Channel One programming.
https://onlineradiobox.com/id/rri/?cs=id.rri&played=1&lang=en has audio streaming for the VOI carried over
3325, which is very different from the WRMI VOI relay. March 9, heard the usual open carrier/dead air on 3325,
at 1103 UT.

VANUATU. 7260, Radio Vanuatu, 0650 till cut off at 0658:53* UT, March 9; announcers and pop island songs.
After 0658+, RV was never heard on any of their known frequencies. The same was noted on March 8.

AUSTRALIA. 5045, Bay Islands Radio. Since their recent return here, they have been having some amazingly
decent receptions for a low powered station; audio nicely above threshold level, so I was able to ID many
of the older songs that were playing non-stop.

March 15 - Another day with no SAs, PSAs, etc., so seems to not be a Island FM relay; 1139+ UT, with over an
hour of non-stop enjoyable listening to a wide variety of older songs; Animals - "Don't let me be Misunderstood,"
Emilie-Claire Barlow - "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head," Hall and Oates - "Rich Girl," Dean Martin - "Memories
Are Made of This," Helen Reddy - "I Am Woman," Andrews Sisters - "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," Betty Everett &
Jerry Butler - "Let It Be Me," Nat King Cole - "I Love You For Sentimental Reasons," Seals and Crofts - "Diamond
Girl," Elvis Presley - "Little Sister," etc.; at 1149, Frank Sinatra - "All the Way" (brief audio attached).

CHINA. 4900, Voice of Strait, 1300* UT, March 15; programming only in Chinese now; fair reception; former VOS
on 4940 seems to be permanently gone now.  

6105-USB, VC01 (tentative), sounded like Chinese Military numbers station, 1240 UT, March 11; woman reading
numbers in Chinese; underneath heavy QRM. My audio - https://app.box.com/s/v7kuejtv37z0dw906t57rnls7gdc52c6 .

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia (Channel One), 1303 UT, March 15; English segment; news, followed by
the usual patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri”; sounded like commentary, which was followed by "Today In History";
all of which was unreadable due to very low modulation, but somewhat better than the usually heard open carrier.
This Channel One programming is very different from the 7780, VOI (Channel Two) relay via WRMI (8-9 UT).

JAPAN. 5006, HFD Radio Station JG2XA, 1112-1155 UT, on March 13; station carrying out a HF-Doppler (HFD)
project; their new 200W signal (open carrier) is doing very well; checking to hear if they have started
their CW SA, but they have not.

KOREA SOUTH: Echo of Hope - VOH, 3985 // 4885 // 5995 // 6250 // 6350 // 9100 kHz., at 1100 UT, March 13;
heard their signature sound of a foghorn; two months with no change; I am not hearing former 7640 any more;
also Nicolas (France) has reported a new VOH frequency on 7710, which others have confirmed, but I have
not heard them there yet. All of which would tend to indicate VOH is experimenting with their seventh
frequency. Needs more monitoring to find out what develops.

New frequencies for Shiokaze/Sea Breeze via Yamata (Japan). 

On Oct 30, at 1300, noted 5935 was no longer active, so spent
the next hour looking for their new frequency, but unable to
do so. Thanks to both Hiroshi and Hiroyuki Komatsubara, I now
understand why I did not locate them; extremely poor frequency
choice on Shiokaze's part; 1300-1400 now on 7410 (ex: 5935),
which has a very strong CRI broadcasting there during that time
period. Oct 31 tuned in at 1300 to 7410 and indeed Shiokaze was
there, but completely unusable reception, as CRI is just too strong.
Reception so poor as to be unable to even guess what language they
used; was very hard to even confirm that it was in fact Shiokaze.

7325 (ex: 5985), Shiokaze/Sea Breeze on Oct 30 at *1405, in
Japanese; clear frequency; carrying the "Furusato No Kaze"
("Wind of Hometown") program (per Hiroshi). This now closes
the window of opportunity to check for Wantok Radio Light
(PNG) reception.

6180, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze on Oct 31 (Monday), at *1600, in stilted
Chinese; heard immediately after the closing down of the echo jamming
of CNR1 against RTI; almost fair

短波收听方法指南


一、收听?率
以下短波全天广播中,以早上6点到凌晨1点收听?率最多。可使用数字、或??短波收音机。数十个?率覆盖全国,??个地区的听?仔?搜?,都能找到几个到十几个?道同?播出。如遇到干???至其他?道。

*以下?率从早上6点到第二天凌晨1点播出

21800, 21530, 18870, 18250, 18180, 17760, 17400, 17200, 17170, 17080, 16980, 16770, 16680, 16600, 16250, 16160, 16100, 15800 , 15940, 15920, 15970, 15870, 15840, 15775, 15740, 15295, 15070, 14980,14920, 14850, 14820, 14800, 14775, 14690, 14600, 14500, 14370, 13980, 13920, 13890, 13870, 13820, 13775, 13680, 13640, 13620, 13530, 13510, 13230, 13200, 13130, 12980, 12950, 12890, 12870, 12820, 12800, 12560, 12500, 12430, 12370, 12345, 12230, 12190, 12150, 11970, 11775, 11765, 11715, 11600, 11580, 11530, 11500, 11460, 11440, 11300, 11150, 11120, 11100, 11070, 10920, 10870, 10820, 10160, 9970, 9920, 9850, 9540, 9280, 9230, 9200, 9180, 9155, 9120, 9100 (千赫)

*以下?率从下午3点?始??凌晨到早上9点播出

5560, 6230, 6280, 6370, 6730, 6870, 6900, 6970, 7210, 7280, 7310, 7460, 7650, 7730, 7810, 9255 (千赫)

(2018年4月1日更新)

二、播放内容
国内外?日重要新?、?事??、????、名家?、脱口秀、禁??播、文化?目等。

祝?收听愉快!!

三、短波收听方法指南
收听短波广播的效果取决于?台?射功率的?弱、收音机性能的好坏以及接收地点等?境因素。好的收音机,收听效果会更好。短波?台的声音有?会忽大忽小,自?增益控制(AGC)性能比?好的收音机,可以??此?象。

如果没有很好的收音机,也不要?,可以通?一些??的方法弥?。短波?号是从天而降,因此在室外直接用伸?天?就可以效果好些,有的?台?号甚至?到不需要伸出天?即可收听。如果在室内收听,首先收音机尽可能靠近窗?,并将伸?天?全部伸出来,如果?要听的?台仍然不清楚,就要考?用室外天?来改善。一般而言,将收音机?到一个比?弱的短波?台,一?收听一?走出室外,如果?个短波?台的信号增?了的?,就??安装室外天?来改善接收效果。

有些收音机都有随机附?卷成??状、??7公尺的???,如果?没有此?原厂天?也可以自己?易做出来,去找一根 5-10 米?的???,中心最好是?金属???的那?,将末端塑?皮剥掉,露出??5-10公分的金属???在短波收音机的伸?天?上,再将天?从窗??下去?垂即可,只要不去接触到??就好,当然,建?听完之后收起来,不然下雨打雷的?候会吸引静?。??疑,短波广播接收就是????,???就可以收听到更多的短波?台。如果?仍然有干?的情形出?,建?先改用?池来接收看看。

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.

Re: KOREA : Clandestine to North Korea Philadelphia - Jun 23, 2017 08:24 UTC No.2357
4557 kHz PBS
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.

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.

https://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:5034

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.

CHINA. 4940, Voice of Strait. Yes, they now have a new Saturday schedule for the 
"Focus on China" program, as first noted last Saturday; 0930-0955, Aug 25. Started
with pop song ("Remember Me"); intro with frequencies; 0937 SA "You are now
listening to Focus on China, in Voice of Strait Broadcast Station"; started out poor;
slowly improved; by 0950 semi-readable about the construction of the Grand Canal;
0952 closing announcement ("See you next week"), followed by another pop song.

Mistake??
This is a high possibility of erroneous transmission of CNR-1 jamming
for the BBC-Uzbec on 4790kHz.

Mistype: 4-7-9-0 --> 4-9-7-0


Always I have been helped by advice of Hiroshi.
Special thank you! (H. Komatsubara)

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
the mystery is now solved, thanks to Hiroshi!

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??

In the case of China, there are many frequencies that broadcasting
the target was moved, continue to broadcast Jamming.
