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.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope VOH, 1034+ UT, Jan 6. An extremely rare day with the normal
N. Korean jamming silent; pop songs (Bruno Mars - "Just The Way You Are," etc.); jamming suddenly

it faded out by 1545; the usual English segment from 1530+; some adjacent light QRM. My audio of
COVID-19 PSA and interesting "Public notice for the elimination of violence" is attached.

The county is currently experiencing a lot of unrest. Noticed in the news today, that a rebel military group has

Thanks, Craig, for your most helpful observations. Today (Jan 15) tuned in to check out the situation with the
Vietnam siren jamming. Also thanks to Liz for the reminder to check 9670 again.

VIETNAM[non]. 9670, Dap Loi Song Nui/Vietnam Democracy Radio, Jan 15, tuned in to hear a definite carrier at

is the same name as the radio station's (song is at https://youtu.be/QrOMsllxfS8 ); announcers in Vietnamese
and played a Vietnamese song; rechecked at 1250 and still no jamming; rather a weak signal, but wonderful to

"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.

"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!

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

Radio DX:

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.

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);
one sound bite in English of an Australian who was visiting an indigenous cultural event, etc.; 0718, promo
for RV and PSA for mental health; 0728, PSA for preparing for a tropical cyclone. Well above the norm, even
with CODAR QRM! My audio is at bit.ly/3wBOL6K .

RRI Nabire (7289.94), 0810 till cut off 0917* UT; mostly EZL songs and some announcers; did not stay on long
enough to get to their Islamic segment (today's call-to-prayer for the Maghrib [sunset] was at 0922 UT). Attached
brief audio of an announcer; above the norm!

> -1200-   6035kHz   CHINA, Yunnan, -1200 piano music, 1200 SA in chinese

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.

Re: DX Gangnam Style. [Ron Howard]
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!

Re: Australia, Korea and Myanmar/Turkey [Ron Howard]


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.

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(29) :: [2023] [Ron Howard]
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: Echo of Hope - VOH on a new, seventh frequency (7640 kHz.) [Ron Howard]
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.

Re: Bay Islands Radio 5045 kHz. [Ron Howard]
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
