Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(27) [Ron Howard]
Hi Amano,

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

Overall good conditions today (Oct 31).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Re: Myanmar Radio [Amano]
Hi Ron-san,
Thank you for following me.
ありがとうございます。

The really short music was a Myanmar radio station single, wasn't it?
Certainly it announces three frequencies on the song.
I checked how to read Burmese numbers and listen again.
I heard the following frequencies.

Ron's audio - https://app.box.com/s/1h4ts48rthxqqzrvbiliwxgphlm1gc6s .

Ngarrrar koe s y layy kilohertz.
Ron's audio, 00:24-00:28.
My audio, 00:30-00:34.

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

My audio below is the ending of a Myanmar music program program by two male and female DJs and the beginning of a Myanmar ethnic music program by a male DJ.

Re: Australia - Radio 4KZ on 5055 kHz., with extended broadcast [Ron Howard]


Amano - Excellent work determining the three Myanmar Radio frequencies. I had often wondered what they were.
Well done!

AUSTRALIA. A Thanksgiving Day treat (Nov 25)! Radio 4KZ (5055) with an extended broadcast and above average reception
(monitoring 1105-1205 UT); recently I had been observing their cut off about 1000. Nice selections of songs today: The
Bangles - "Manic Monday," Jimmy Cliff - "You Can Get It If You Really Want," Petula Clark - "My Love," Phil Collins -
"One More Night," Tom Jones - "I'll Never Fall In Love Again," Stevie Wonder - "I Just Called To Say I Love You,"
Creedence Clearwater Revival - "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," etc.

BTW - Voice of Indonesia (3325) returned to the air today (1100+) with their usual carrier and no audio; it had been
silent this month.

Re: 4940 kHz. is now IDing as "This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio." [Ron Howard]

0945-0955: Open carrier (// 4900)

0955: Start of IS (// 4900)

0956: Not //

1000: Time pips; intro SA, including "This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio." So they indeed have the same

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

KOREA SOUTH:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pyongyang BS,?3320?//?6160, both fair.

KCBS Pyongyang, 3250 // 3959, both fair.

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

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

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

"Sichu?n minzu gu?ngbo, Sichuan Ethnic Radio"; fair reception on both frequencies.

KOREA SOUTH. 9095, Echo of Hope - VOH, 0545-0600* UT, on Jan 1. New Year's show of all pop songs in English
(Britney Spears - "Oops!...I Did It Again," etc.); fair-good. At *0600 UT, heard VOH start on 5995 // 6350.

VOH, 5995 // 6350, at 0724, Jan 2 (Sunday). Start of the weekend only English lesson, with reading of a "Harry
Potter" story.

Jan 3 (Monday) observations:

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100, at 1005 UT; these frequencies should be good
through Jan 9.

Voice of the People: 3910 // 3930 // 3480 (best reception!) // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1010 UT; these frequencies
do not change.

ZAMBIA. 5915, R. One/ZNBC1, 0247-0415 UT, Jan 1. The usual New Year's Day special broadcast; countless phone
conversations and playing a lot of nice African music; 0357, very pleased to hear my favorite "Happy Christmas/
Happy New Year" African song again; reception fair, but not as good as heard on Jan 1, 2015 (my 2015 audio - http://goo.gl/vmeGn0 ). A program I always enjoy!

Re: Voice of Indonesia back again with much improved signal/audio! [Ron Howard]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1345: Program "Today's Music Corner."

Re: Malaysia - Sarawak FM (9835 kHz.) reactivated with good signal [Ron Howard]
MALAYSIA. Very good news! On June 27 found this country now with two active SW stations, both well heard.
What has happened on 9835? Did they totally overhaul the former xmtr or is this new? Brief audio attached.

11665, Wai FM. Doing my usual monitoring here at 1341 UT, to hear the often heard indigenous praying/chanting;
for a while now this has been routinely heard with good reception.

Checking 9835, amazed to find Sarawak FM, via Kajang (on the west coast of the Malaysia peninsular), on the air again
after a considerable absence; good signal; at 1352, long musical montage featuring their many types of "lagu" (music);
1359, "R-T-M" SAs and mentioning some of their various stations; into the news in vernacular, but cut off at 1401* UT,
with the first item about the University of Malaysia.

Monday - Aug 29 observations:

KOREA SOUTH. Was unfamiliar with the VOH sign on format, so was very intrigued by Richard's report about hearing a
"foghorn" (Thanks Richard!), which I had never heard at any time in the past. Today when I checked for the weekly VOH
frequency changes, indeed heard the new format of foghorn at the ToH; noted foghorn at 1300 UT (10:00 PM JST) and?into
the news in?Korean (item about "Australia, Queensland," etc.); also again at 1401 UT (11:01 PM JST) and again at?1500
UT (12:00 midnight JST) (brief audio attached), followed?by the "Oneul-ui sosig" (Today's News) program.

VOH today on 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 (VOH's only off frequency!) // 9100 kHz.; good from Aug 29 to Sept 4.

be the fundamental/primary frequency (not a harmonic), as no carrier heard on 3966 nor 11898; CODAR QRM, as also
reported by others. After 0659, I couldn't find them anywhere (2485, 3945, 5040, 7260, etc.). Here are a few

usual intro has announcer saying "English trainer" and giving his name ("Mayu"), then the woman announcer
says her name ("Mini"); 9105, as usual, with excellent reception (brief audio attached).

Voice of Freedom, 6045, at 1158 UT; closing SA for the "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowledge is power) program;

reception.

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

VOH: On 9100, April 9 (Friday), at 1154 UT, with the weekday EBS (Educational Broadcasting System -
https://www.ebs.co.kr/main ) produced English language lesson; as always with a good signal (audio
attached). On Sunday (11th), at 0729, the weekend only reading of a Harry Potter story in both English

continuing with a repeating four hour program loop.

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

Voice of Freedom, remains buried on 6045, under very strong super jamming from N. Korea, from 1120+ UT, on

It was received on the lower side due to the interference of CNR5 on the upper side.

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

Ron-san - I listened to your audio, the unique Wai FM SA's.
It sounds very good and is enjoy to listen to.
A lot of unique SA’s also were broadcast on May 4 at Wai FM on 11665 kHz from 1311 UTC.

At 0900, Interference starts from the lower side, CNR-1 on 9830 signs on.
To avoid interference, I used sync on USB.
I enjoyed listening to Sarawak FM very much.
The sound is better than the Wai FM!
At 0945, It suddenly signed off.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

!VOnHJJUOuDI!

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

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

This program is produced by EBSe (EBS English).

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

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

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

1800 - "Bodo gwangjang" (News plaza)

1810 - "Nalssi Jeonmangdae" (Weather Observatory)

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

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

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

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

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

My audio attached.

Re: Voice of Freedom [Amano]
KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, 0400-0402, Jan 18.
There is no change in VOF broadcast time.
I received the ending, but the first part was hit by local noise.
The content of the ending is the same as last year.

Re: Voice of Freedom with NK jamming [Amano]
KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, 0006-, Feb 18.
NK super jamming stopped at 0006'14".
After that, I heard Korean, but NK jamming also existed.
Confirmed the ending of "Ma-eum-e swimpyo" (Resting heart) at 0014.
Confirmed the opening of "Dodbogilo boneun sesang" (The world through a magnifying glasses) at 0015.
In the morning, it is difficult to enjoy VOF because NK jamming is strong against VOF.
My audio (Edit 02:10) at https://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/img/4774.mp3
0006’00“-0006’30“/0014’10“-0015’50“
*NK super jamming stops after 00:14.

Re: Myanmar Radio on 9730 kHz. [Amano]
MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, +1000’03“-1059’46“+, Feb 19 (Friday).
+1000’03“- The strong signal CNR1 stopped and I heard Burmese.
As time went on, the signal went up.
The frequency seemed to be a little higher, and the synchronous detection was sometimes off.
My audio (02:00) at https://radio.chobi.net/bbs/img/8986.mp3
* 1055’25“-1057’25“

-1058’08“- A strong unmodulated wave came out, but I could hear Burmese behind the scenes.
-1059’46“+ CRI English has come out.
My audio (02:07) at https://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/img/4775.mp3
* 1058’08“-1100’15“
* The sound during the appearance of unmodulated waves was amplified and edited.
