My audio (01:31 edit) at http://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/img/3880.mp3

The DJ has been changed from Kwak Young Il to Kang Susie.
I think that it was changed last year, but I don't know what time it has changed.
It used to be broadcast twice, now it is only 0300-0400 KST/JST, 1800-1900 UTC.

Kang Susie is a Korean idol singer in the 1990s.
It was also active in Japan.
She sings a very good ballad.

Ron san, 
Thank you for your report on Hanminjok Bansong ? Broadcasts for Koreans overseas.
I would like you to know that you can broadcast through internet application by both android and ios with your mobile phone any time you want.

Also it is possible for you to listen to MBC (Moonwha Bangsong ? Cultural Broadcasting Company Korea ) through the application named ‘MBC mini’.

If any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
Have a nice day, ’73.

Hello! Ron-san and pasar malam

Ron-san
Thank you for checking out the Pops Freedom music list that I listened to on Oct 23 (KST / JST).
On this day I recorded the whole program.
Based on this list, I edited the 46-minute program to 7 minutes.

I've heard a commercial for 'KBS kong' during the Pops Freedom.
It was not broadcast during the program on Oct 23 (KST / JST).
This commercial was being broadcast during the program when Kang Susie was in charge of broadcasting for one hour every day.
Even now, it is broadcast for 1 hour only on Saturdays and Sundays (KST/JST), so it may be broadcast at that time.

KOREA SOUTH. 972, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on Feb 15 2020, 1846’30-1847’42“.

Hi Amano and pasar malam,

Unfortunately the current schedule for KBS's "Pops Freedom" program doesn't propagate to my location.
I really miss being able to hear the program via 6015 kHz. (10-11 UTC), back when Kwak Young Il was
the DJ. My clear 2015 SA is at - https://app.box.com/s/6csq7upcgik8wf9m6ca27kc5grg3u3ma .

97MHz 89.4MHz, and removed AM 684 kHz and 1080 kHz. they transmit
VOU on AM no more, and South Korean jammers turned off AM(684,

Original frequency: SW 3970 kHz, 6250 kHz
Re-transmitted: FM 97.8 MHz
New Frequency: SW 5905 kHz, FM 97 MHz, 89.4 MHz

AM, FM, and SW happenings in Seoul - it's a bit of a mess, all of it
occurring on December 21:
KOR 1080 Goyang & Hwaseong have both turned off.
DPK 1080 Haeju (Echo of Unification) has turned off.
KOR 684 Goyang & Hwaseong have turned off.
DPK 684 Pyonggang-Cheorwon (E. of Unification) has turned off.
DPK 6250KHz, 5905KHz, 3970KHz now running Echo of Unification
DPK 89.4 has turned on with E. of Unification [likely] in Kaesong (suburban
Seoul area)
DPK 97.0 has turned on with E. of Unification, unknown location likely
along the east coast
DPK 97.8 is still listed active with E. of Unification but has been off since
2015, transmitter in Haeju //1080 south of downtown.

All Echo of Unification frequencies confirmed via the station's announcement
on their website and observations in Seoul and Incheon Friday afternoon. Echo
of Unification runs from 7-9, 1-3, and 9-11pm PST (UTC+9:30) across all network
affiliates.

+Addition Explanation

South Korea FM Jammers which are located in Namsan started to prevent
Pyongyang FM and VOU frequencies from receiving in South Korea.
FM Jammers testing now in South Korea : 89.4 MHz, 92.8 MHz, 93.6 MHz,
97.0 MHz, 97.8 MHz, 103.7 MHz

I think testing FM Jammers except 89.4, 97.0, 97.8 MHz are aimed at
Pyongyang FM or other propaganda broadcasts.

(I couldn't check 92.8 93.6 103.7 because of jammer yet, but I think
103.7 is still same as 92.5 (Pyongyang FM).

They have already the web page in Chinese; https://vomkorea.com/zh/
In their web page they described about the opening of Chinese broadcast;
https://vomkorea.com/zh/china-radio-broadcasts/
They also have facebook in Chinese; https://www.facebook.com/VOMKCN/

(brief translation)
TVOM’s broadcast in Chinese began on May 1 2022, 2 times a day on online. The contents included the preaching 
of the pastors at underground church in China. We confirmed by the secret method that the broadcast was listened 
to by the Chinese people. But we doubt the online is always blocked by Chinese government. China is the major
manufacturer of shortwave radios in the world. 60% of Chinese people are listening to radio broadcasts. Both 
Chinese government and US government media are increasing the hours of shortwave broadcasting, This situation 
made us to decide to broadcast to China on shortwave. God will bring encouragement and comfort to Chinese 
Christians through the content of shortwave radio.

Where did the 4810kHz, which is sending test transmissions with strong signals every day, come from ??
Judging from the strength of the signal, it seems to come from the Korean peninsula...???

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(28) Ron Howard - Sep 25 (Sun), 2022 02:08 UTC No.5101
UNID. 4810 kHz., first noted the test tone Sept 20, with random checking 0835 UT till past 1050+; 
listened for a long time, thinking the UNID might sign on, but that never happened. Heard at a good

Greetings from California! Very nice on your 4835 kHz. reception. At my location, I hear the station's carrier daily, 
but only with audio before my local sunrise (about 1300-1400 UT). Yes, also noted 4810 without the test tone today.
That is very exciting news about your RRI-Nabire reception!! I have not checked for them in a long time, as I thought
they were never going to reactivate. So thank you very much for the alert!!!  

On July 16, this reply was received to my reception report (4835 kHz.) to Dave Stuart, operator of "Shortwave Australia"
< vk3ase@yahoo.com >:

"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 [which I never was able to hear - Ron] that should override 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 too weak to hear. What would be the best time for you to listen, last night I went off about 1am our time
[1500 UT - Ron]. 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."

and // 6060; with 5040 being silent. RHC on 5025 made for stronger than usual QRM for SIBC (5020).

INDONESIA. 7289.93, Pro 1 RRI Nabire (presumed). Wonderful to hear this again; last heard by me back
in early 2019; I had not checked here for a long time, as I never thought they would be reactivating; thanks
very much to the timely alert by Hiroyuki Komatsubara (Japan), who on Sept 26 logged: "0845 - 7290 kHz,
RRI-Nabire (Pro 1), INDONESIA, // http://streema.com/radios/play/RRI_Pro1_Nabire (-0919- No signal)."

Sept 27 - Heard Pro 1 RRI Nabire on about 7289.93 kHz., from 0804 till off at 0824* UT; program of easy listening
music and songs; very few announcements; no distinctive details heard. Seems the cut off time varies a lot; the
signal was slowly improving the whole time; assume if they had stayed on till about 0900 UT, the reception might
have been fairly decent. This is certainly worth monitoring during the upcoming DX season!

KIRITIMATI. 846, Radio Kiribati (presumed), 0658 UT, Sept 27. What I would call nice indigenous singing. Believe
this would seem to be consistent for their local music? Brief audio attached.

NEW ZEALAND. 7245, RNZP, 1233-1258* UT, Sept 26. ABC Australia Wantok program in vernacular with Sam Seke
and Hilda Wayne; interesting to hear many sound bites of Manasseh Sogavare, Prime Minister of Solomon Islands,
address to the 77th Session of the General Assembly of the UN ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVy68Hnh6tc );

70 years . . . I wish you all a happy celebration"); 1052-1059, preaching in English; 1101, intro calliope music,
then news in English (soundbite of Manasseh Sogavare's [Prime Minister of Solomon Islands], address to
the General Assembly of the UN); 1108, SA mid-way through the news. Cuba continues to be silent on 5025!

TAIWAN. 9410 (signal almost all in USB), Fu Hsing BS, 0854-0900* UT. Confirming that their sign off time remains
the same; in Chinese and playing music; audio continues to be distorted; assume // 9774 (only a carrier heard).
No signal on 15375, but this is often the case at this time period, as I do hear it earlier, before the band closes
down.

RTM has been missing from both 9835 and 11665 for several days (checking around 1000 to 1100 hours UTC each day).
Does anyone know why? They've recently upgraded their signal on both frequencies, and they were heard well here
for a while. It seems unlikely they would have made that investment if they had planned to go off shortwave.

- - - - - - Here is the reply to my email expressing concern for 9835 (Sarawak FM) & 11665 (Wai FM) being absent:

"Thank you for contacting me regarding this issue.

For your information, currently both SW transmitters are off the air due to medium voltage (MV) maintenance
works. It was shut off from 1st October 2022 until 8th October 2022 (based on our planning).

It will be on the air on 9 October 2022 as usual.

Thanks for your concern and also thanks for choosing our channel.

BTW - As Zach has already reported today in WOR iog, I also noted RRI Nabire off the air on Oct 4, for the
second consecutive day!

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, from tune in at 0850 till cut off in mid-song at 0907* UT, Oct 8.
Am very grateful to Tony Ashar commenting on my reported "reciting from the Qur'an (seems to be a daily
segment about 0848-0858)," as I failed to note two distinctly separate things were happening; per Tony:
"Shalawat Tarhim is a prayer reading addressed to the prophet Muhammad's followers and echoed by mosques
or prayer rooms in Indonesia just before the call to prayer."
 
Oct 8 had the following Islamic call-to-prayer times for Nabire (per - http://bit.ly/3yrvbLM ):

Fajr - dawn            04:26 (1926 UT)
Dhuhr - after midday   11:49  (0249 UT)
Asr - afternoon        14:53 (0553 UT)
Maghrib - sunset       17:54  (0854 UT)
Isha'a - nighttime     19:02  (1002 UT)

Oct 8, I tuned into the Shalawat Tarhim prayer, followed by 0854-0857 UT, with the Maghrib (sunset)
call-to-prayer.

BTW - Today is a holiday in Indonesia, celebrating Maulid Nabi Muhammad, the anniversary of the birthday
of Prophet Muhammad.

VANUATU. New happenings for Radio Vanuatu? Oct 8, Marshall Reel, at 0747 UT, was having decent reception
on RV's 3rd harmonic of 11835 ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TATj_Y_zf6s ). But when I randomly listened
to RV from 0910 till off after the National Anthem at 1106* UT, I had no trace at all of RV on 11835 (nothing
there the whole time!). Fundamental frequency of 3945 was unusable (only a carrier) and nothing on 4th harmonic
of 15780. So only the 2nd harmonic on 7890 was heard with poor to fair reception. I find it hard to believe I
was unable to get any 11835 signal, as normally that is fairly good. Needs more monitoring!

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(28) Ron Howard - Oct 15 (Sat), 2022 21:31 UTC No.5126

Observations for Oct 15:

AUSTRALIA. 4835, "Shortwave Australia," a quick check at 1115 & 1214 UT; very weak signal with EZL music.

5055, Radio 4KZ, 1159 UT; still on the air well past their recently observed cut off time of a few minutes past 1100.
Is this the seasonal schedule change? Believe it went off the air just after 1200? Needs more monitoring.

CHINA. 4900 // 4940, Voice of Strait, at 0959 UT; both with EZL music; 1000, not // and 4940 with the usual ID in
English ("This is the Voice of Taiwan Strait News Radio"), then into Chinese programming.

On new 6010, CNR6, 1203 UT. Thanks very much to Ralph Perry for the timely alert of this new development;
// to the long standing 6165 CNR6 frequency. Probably missed the sign on at around 1200, as it was not on the air
during earlier monitoring? Did not stay with this to find out if CNR11 is still here later? Needs more monitoring to
determine the full CNR6 schedule for 6010.

6175 (CNR1) // 7230 (CNR1) // 9645 (CNR1) // 9675 (CNR1) // 9685 (CNR5) // 11750 (CNR1) // 11825 (CNR1 jamming
VOA from Philippines), 0909+ UT (sill on past 1005+). Live press conference of the 20th National Congress of the CPC,
being held at the Great Hall of the People (YouTube full 2 hr. coverage - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XJlaGJ4ejY );
in Chinese, with translation into English.

7210, PBS Yunnan, 1047 UT; played their IS of Chinese songs; mixing with VCO1 (a numbers station run by the Chinese Air
Defense) that was in LSB; also present seemed to be SOH (Taiwan) on a slightly lower off-frequency. A royal mess here!
It is not uncommon for CNR1 to also be here to jam SOH, but not today.

MEXICO. 1700 AM, Heraldo Radio, 1101 UT; choral National Anthem; 1103, full SA in Spanish; then into pop songs (their
usual format). Interesting to note that on SW, the Mexican station on 6185, when closing down for the day, also plays the
choral NA at the same time.

VANUATU. 7890 (2nd harmonic), 1051 UT; religious songs till SA & usual list of frequencies in Bislama; followed by National
Anthem; audio ending at 1101. Normally I do not re-check after audio ends, but today at 1106, I found RV again with audio
(pop songs) till 1109* xmtr cut off. Wonder if this happens every day? 7890 was noted // 3945.

Thanks very much, Amano, for the excellent Wai FM audio. Very enjoyable!

Nov 16 - A different situation today at 1330 UT, with an open carrier on 9835 kHz., which I assume was Sarawak FM
testing their transmitter, while today found Wai FM (11665) to be off the air (normally sign off time for both
stations is 1400* UT, or a few minutes past.

Also heard Sound of Hope (Taiwan) with one of their better days, on 6214.90 // 6229.95, with 6280 absent today. On
my attached audio, as usual no time pips at ToH, but the normal ID ("Xiwang zhi sheng guoji guangbo diantai" -
translation: Sound of Hope international broadcast station) is at 01:03, given twice (once by a man and again by a

Hi Ron-san and Komatsubara
Thank you always for DXing information.

UNID Korean station on 9430 kHz sounds like "RBS 북한부흥통일방송 (北韓復興統一放送)" to me.
In Korean reading, “RBS Bughan buheung tong-il bangsong“.
In English, “RBS North Korean Revival Unification Broadcasting“.

Re: Korea Ron Howard - Nov 18 (Fri), 2022 14:26 UTC No.5180
Greetings, Amano, from California! Appreciate your excellent feedback regarding the UNID station. 
This is most helpful.

Online I noted the following interesting VOA article (Nov 17) - https://bit.ly/3GrKN6E .

"Experts: Information Campaign Key to Pressuring North Korea"

" . . . Sending North Korea "massive quantities of information from entertainment to news" could open people's
understanding about the outside world and their "inalienable and universal rights" as well as the "truth about
the Kim regime," Maxwell said. The outside information could even cover such educational topics as improving
crop yields, he added.

Getting information to North Koreans would include increasing the number of hours that defector groups broadcast
into North Korea, influencing North Korean elites overseas to bring information into the country, and to restart
loudspeaker broadcasts at the interKorean border, said Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst at the Rand Corp. . ."

Hi MAUNO,

>> -0800- 7235kHz NORTH KOREA, Voice of Korea, Chinese, QSY from 7220kHz
I noticed today. It is unknown if this has changed.

Do you have any interesting information ? :D:D

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(28) Mauno - Nov 19 (Sat), 2022 13:57 UTC No.5191
Not really, I just heard it later on normal 7220 kHz. So maybe just a one-day error.

BTW, who and where are you, XYZ?

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom, on Nov 30, at 1157 UT; closing SA for the "Aneun geos-i him-ida"
(Knowledge Is Power) program; 1200, the usual single tone; then "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob)

"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.

For over six months this frequency had been bothered by a nuisance QRN. Was not N. Korean jamming, as
was here even when VOF was up on ex 6045 kHz. Today for the first time that former noise was absent,
instead there is now a pulsating tone QRM, which is not as bad as the former continuous noise.

Very pleased to find that we were listening to the same stations today!!

Voice of Freedom - Dec 7, back on the alternate frequency of 6045 kHz. (ex: 5920); for the first time ever, heard
with good reception due to the long-standing super jamming from N. Korea being recently off the air, as it was
today; ex 5920 still jammed.

0900 UT (6:00 PM JST) - the usual single tone; then  "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo ohu 6 (yeoseos) sileul
allyeodeulibnida" (In English - Voice of Freedom has announced 6pm); 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. My five minute audio at bit.ly/3F3EgNg .

Radio Vanuatu, on new 7260 kHz. (ex: 5040), 0632+ UT (3:32+ PM JST), on Dec 7. From 0632 to 0637,
the usual segment with announcements and messages, today partially in English and ending with the
normally heard indigenous drums; 0637, usual station jingle mentioning "Kingdom of Tonga, Solomon
Islands, Voice of Papua New Guinea and Radio Vanuatu"; at 0659 they did NOT change frequencies,
but was still on 7260 when last checked at 1035; at 0755, "The Little Drummer Boy" Xmas song. Het and
QRM seemed to be from a Chinese station slightly off frequency?

December 8 observations:

CHINA. 6185, CHBC, 0950-1001 UT; the only good thing about Mexico being silent here, is that now
this station is in the clear till 1001, when Voice of Korea, in English, starts to completely block them;
heard EZL Chinese instrumental music (their IS?) till time pips and into Chinese.

INDONESIA. 7289.93, RRI Nabire Pro 1, a brief check 0745-0754 UT; playing non-stop EZL pop songs;
checked again at 0807, only to find them off the air, so a very early cut off time today!

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, quick check at 0736 UT; heard N. Korean pulsating jamming here
even before VOF starts at *0753; so it only took them a day to realize the change of frequency (ex 5920).

MALAYSIA[non-log]. 9835, Sarawak FM, a quick check at 0850 UT; found them still silent; while Wai FM
on 11665, was heard as usual.

VANUATU. 7260, Radio Vanuatu, almost non-stop listening 0710-1020 UT. A very good day here, with enjoyable
listening due to reception being well above the norm; tuned into news/sports in Bislama, with sound bite of an
Aussie talking about providing Vanuatu with air medical evacuation services; heard several of the often heard
PSAs for mental health; 0731, "Special segment" regarding the Dept. of Labor, in Bislama; 0801, program in
Bislama about "agriculture and empowering of women"; 0821, PSA in Bislama for "tropical cyclone preparedness";
0902, long segment in Bislama about a "Music festival"; was fairly readable the whole time and of course played
a lot of nice island songs; today the Chinese het/QRM was not noted.

0615 UT, info about the time for the quarter finals match today between Croatia and Brazil.

0633, DJ in Bislama, with many mentions of "Friday afternoon" and talking about "celebrations" and "Christmas parties."

0640, Xmas song in English ("Wish You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year").

0651-0652, OM with intro and exit IDs ("Weather information, Radio Vanuatu") and YL with weather forecast.

0656, the usual commercial announcements (Xmas gift wrapping service, "Vanuatu events," bank with wishes
for a "Merry Christmas to our customers," "mobile stage" for Vanuatu events, etc.

0700-0716, news/sports in Bislama, with a repeat of the sound bite heard at 0708, on Dec 8 ("Aussie talking
about providing Vanuatu with air medical evacuation services").

0948, PSA in Bislama about taking care of livestock ("goats, chickens," etc.) before a tropical cyclone hits.

1000, news/sports in Bislama.

Thanks for checking 7560 kHz. and posting the excellent audio/video! For sure my brief audio of Dec 14, 
was NOT the new UNID clandestine in Chinese. Today (Dec 16 - Friday) at *1359 UT heard the clandestine
intro music and then into Chinese monologue, but unreadable, due to weak signal at my location. At *1400,
I again heard the same audio as I recorded on the 14th, which was much stronger than the UNID clandestine;
so probably CNR? Checked several times after 1400 and was only hearing Chinese monologue, but never strong
enough to be readable.

heavy rainfall and thunderstorms expected over Tafea province and parts of Central islands tonight. People
are advised to take extra precaution for possible flash-flooding, land slide and coastal-flooding over low
lying areas and areas close to river banks. Remain indoors where thunderstorm activities occur); 0638, update
on the recent election results for Fiji
(was a major change - https://www.nytimes.com/2022/12/20/world/asia/fiji-election.html :

". . . While Mr. Bainimarama [outgoing PM] aligned Fiji more closely with Beijing, Mr. Rabuka [incoming PM] is
expected to favor a stronger relationship with Australia and New Zealand, the region’s historic powerhouses and
close allies to the United States. His party also ruled out a proposed security deal with Beijing, like the one
signed by the Solomon Islands and China earlier this year. . .")

0655, the usual series of adv. (register for health care benefits and funeral benefits, etc.), promos and PSAs
for mental health and about malaria; 0701-0717, news/sports/weather warning in Bislama; played some Xmas songs;

Re: Channel II - Voice of Indonesia relay from WRMI (7780 kHz.) Ron Howard - Dec 27 (Tue), 2022 21:21 UTC No.5241


INDONESIA[non]. First some Voice of Indonesia history:

DX LISTENING DIGEST 16-43 ( http://www.w4uvh.net/dxld1643.txt ):

"INDONESIA. 9525.9, VOI (Channel II program), Oct 26, 2016 anomaly at 1316. Not the normal VOI Channel I
English programs of news, commentary, Today in History, Focus, etc.; today played a lot of EZL music; 1321
talking about the Jakarta weather, in English; 1326 back to music. It was on Sept 25, 2016 that VOI also
had this anomaly of playing Channel II programming (same format as today). Do they just do this once a
month? (Ron Howard, Calif., dxldyg via WORLD OF RADIO 1849, DX LISTENING DIGEST)"
[Back in 2016, I recall that I found references to "Channel I" and "Channel II," but checking the Web again
now, I don't find any such references, so I'm not sure how they are currently differentiating the two VOI
formats?]

Later 9525.9v went off the air, but in June 2018, I first noted that Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya programming was
no longer aired on 3325; instead they started broadcasting VOI (Channel I), with their various languages,
one hour segments. Over the years, I often checked 3325, to try to find out if VOI ever carried the very
different Channel II programming, but that was never heard. 3325 (VOI Channel I) always has structured
programs ("Today in History,"  "Indonesia Today," "Indonesian Wonder," "My Indonesia,"  "Let`s Learn Bahasa
Indonesia," "Today's Music Corner," etc.), which are aired more or less at structured times during 1300 to
1400 UT.

Today (Dec 27 - please note my VOI/Channel II receptions in 2016, were on Sept 25 & Oct 26) tuned into the
WRMI (7780) relay of VOI, from 0815 till 0900 UT and was very surprised to find it was NOT the same VOI
(Channel I) format/programs in English that are aired over 3325, but instead was Channel II, which is also
in English, but with a more informal format; consists mainly of a fairly free flowing, unstructured DJ
playing Western style pop songs (no indigenous music/songs, as often heard on 3325/Channel I); few programs
with an actual title (one was "Newsflash" - Indonesian President to ban the sale of single cigarette sticks
starting in 2023 - bit.ly/3WOQJLQ ).

So the question is, does WRMI only relay VOI Channel II?

Re:Channel II - Voice of Indonesia relay from WRMI (7780 kHz.) Ron Howard - Dec 31 (Sat), 2022 12:20 UTC No.5248
Dec 31, on 7780 kHz., 0800+ UT: VOI - Channel II relay in English from WRMI; very brief news (ASEAN item);
after the news, as usual, played patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri”; numerous VOI SAs; YL DJ with the majority of the
programming being pop Western style songs; mentioned " last day of 2022"; OM wishing "R-R-I" listeners a Happy
New Year; 0815, world weather report, starting with Banjarmasin, etc.; several brief spots (not programs!) about
indigenous music and foods; 0830, "Newsflash," weather warning.

Certainly this is NOT the relay of VOI - Channel I, as noted on 3325 kHz.; as heard from 1300 to 1400 UT, in English.
I would say that Channel I has more indigenous information about Indonesia, while Channel II has more of a Western
style flavor to it.

Thanks very much to tip from Hiroyuki Komatsubara, heard
this station again that had been off for a while; heard
underneath fairly strong CNR5, in Chinese and playing
music (fortunately CNR5 was all talking, making reception
easier).

It really is a shame Fu Hsing BS does not use 9774 now, due
to the fact that 9775 is totally clear of CNR2 (which I believe is
off the air on all[?] frequencies now - 6065, 6155, etc. silent)

7502.0 (strongest in USB) (ex: 9522-USB), StarStar Broadcasting Station 
(XingXing BS), tuned in at 1305, Dec 8. Reading of Chinese numbers, plus
some brief breaks in between for something other than numbers? Fair to
almost good; 1328*.

My audio at https://app.box.com/s/wo9wjpsifu1wv5vojupr7ovy84s3qyui .
What is said during 01:07-01:10? Seems not to be numbers and is a
different person than reading the numbers?

Yesterday's broadcast on 9522.0-USB was a one day anomaly? Perhaps
just testing reception on that frequency?

Some information on the revival of radio stations archive

Revival Radio September 2017 Short-wave recovery briefly resumed
In mid-September 2017, the Radio in Fuxing once briefly resumed the launch of the short-wave
and stopped its firing only a few times (speculatively).
Record launch time (Beijing time):
September 14 20: 00-? 9410kHz
September 25 12: 00-? 13750kHz (until 15:00 still firing)

Fuxing Broadcasting Station transmitting equipment failure to stop short-wave transmission,
the use of two frequencies of 9410,9774kHz launch,
Hours are 07: 00-09: 00, 12: 00-14: 00, 16: 00-18: 00 and 19: 00-21: 00

The 13750kHz frequency appeared at noon on September 25, 2017, and was broadcast by Starburst
Radio (V13) randomly from late July to early August 2017. Can the revival radio station
shortwave be launched with the same set of transmitting equipment from Star Broadcasting
Station?

Renaissance radio stops broadcasting multiple mid-wave frequencies
On January 2, 2018, the NCC released the latest document entitled "Radio Frequency AM
Broadcasting Station Frequency and Transmitter Address", in contrast with the document
published on October 3, 2017, deleting the " Wave frequency of the record, this is the
resurgence of radio stations following the shortwave frequency due to equipment failure
to stop transmitting once again cut the launch frequency.

The frequencies involved are:
Taipei Main Station (Fuxing Radio Taipei Station)
558,909,1089 kHz
Taichung Sub-station (Fuxing Radio Taichung Broadcasting Station)
1089kHz
Kaohsiung Sub-station (Fuxing Radio Kaohsiung Broadcasting Station)
846kHz

At present, there are only three middlewave frequencies in Taiwan, and one FM frequency
is still being launched:
Taipei Main Station (Fuxing Radio Taipei Station)
594kHz
Taichung Sub-station (Fuxing Radio Taichung Broadcasting Station)
107.8MHz, 594kHz

Voice of Tibet - Chinese program stoped broadcasting

"Voice of Tibet" broadcasting with changing frequencies everyday is broadcasting at an odd
frequency to avoid jamming in China. Because jamming only occurs at 5 kHz step, it has little
effect. By the middle of November 2018, the Chinese language heard in the 11.6 MHz band became
inaudible. The website schedule also disappeared and the short wave broadcast was canceled.

Tibetan broadcasting is being broadcast on the same time as before. It is almost impossible
to change the frequency in a few minutes, and it often comes out at the same frequency for
30 minutes. The sending site is Tajikistan.

In Chinese, at https://cahcn.github.io/posts/2020-07-03-Yunnan-Media-Group.html :

English translation:

"On July 1, 2020, the Yunnan Provincial Bureau of Radio and Television announced on its
official website the news of the adjustment of the call signs of two sets of programs for
Yunnan Radio and TV Station. The original text is as follows:

Yunnan Radio and TV Station's application to adjust the launch of tourism broadcasting was
approved by the General Administration of the People's Republic of China on June 11, 2020.
The State Administration of Radio and Television approved Yunnan Radio and Television's
children's broadcasting to be adjusted to tourism broadcasting and Shangri-La's Voice to
international broadcasting."

PBS Yunnan has two SW frequencies. One is on 7210, which starts about 1035 with their long
playing musical loop IS till programs start at 1100; while on 6035, PBS relays FM99 (Voice of
Shangri-la), which starts about 1145. At 1200 UT, they always have the following: time pips,
Beijing time check, station's singing "Radio Shangri-la" jingle; followed by spoken English
("Flying with the heart, traveling with the sound of Shangri-la"). FM99 香格里拉之声 (The
Voice of Shangri-la) also IDs as "F-M ji? ji?."

Found the following online:

"Voice of Shangri-La FM99 (Yunnan Tourism Frequency)

Tourism frequency of Yunnan People’s Broadcasting Station (call sign: Voice of Shangri-La) is a new
set launched by Yunnan People’s Broadcasting Station this year as a new type of frequency reform
under the care and support of the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government. The new
frequency was officially launched on January 1, 2005. The frequency of use is FM99, which broadcasts
for 17 hours a day. The frequency is positioned to show Yunnan’s rich tourism resources and national
culture, and it will provide tourism information based on the spread of tourism culture [service], the
purpose of guiding tourism consumption, [service] Traveling crowds, advancing tourism, and providing
a sound and colorful professional publicity platform for the construction of a major province of national
cultural tourism. The voice of Shangri-La is broadcast on FM at 99 MHz and currently covers some cities
in Kunming and Yunnan. Within three years, it will complete the coverage of 15 municipalities, densely
populated economically developed areas and important border ports.

In April 2005, the Voice of Shangri-La, as the only broadcast media, visited the United States on behalf of
Yunnan People’s Broadcasting Station and the Yunnan Provincial Government Yunnan Radio and Television
Week delegation, and signed with the world’s top 10 broadcast TV network platform WCETV Yinshi. Signed a

it also provides a brand new model for Yunnan tourism promotion.

"Shangri-La" is not only the name of an ethnic area in our province, but also a heavenly and beautiful place
that people yearn for. She is local and world, and it has become a cosmopolitan world due to localization.
Therefore, the program of "Sound of Shangri-La" is based on the local area and faces the whole country,
covering ASEAN, Europe and the United States. Localization, personalization, strong ethnic culture, ethnic
tourism appeal and scarcity make it irreplaceable when creating frequency brands, making it the most
distinctive broadcast media in Yunnan.

"Sound of Shangri-La" was broadcast continuously for 17 hours throughout the day, starting at 7 am and
ending at 0 pm. The broadcast method is mainly live broadcast. Live broadcast programs can not only
communicate with the audience in a friendly and natural way, but also provide people with food, housing,
travel, travel, shopping, entertainment in a timely and efficient manner (Services). The key columns are:

Re: CHINA : Yunnan PBS on 6035kHz Ron Howard - Jul 04 (Sat), 2020 15:40 UTC No.4604
July 4 - Sudden start up, already in progress on 6035, at *1146. At 1200, the normal FM99 format 
(time pips, Beijing time check, station's singing "Radio Shangri-la" jingle; followed by spoken English -
"Flying with the heart, traveling with the sound of Shangri-la"). Perhaps it is too early for them to have
changed their name on-air.

What was very different today was the super strong white noise jamming on 6045, which totally blocked
any chance of Voice of Freedom reception on 6045 and also adversely affected FM99 reception on 6035.
A very sad development for both VOF, which had been free of any jamming for a long time and also bad
for FM99 reception.

I could check the broadcast between 0135-0600/0630 UTC, but the time after that
can not be known due to interference from the same frequency (7275kHz).

Re: CHINA : Guizhou PBS 7275kHz Mauno Ritola - Mar 13, 2018 11:16 UTC No.3123
But as you saw its carrier 25 Hz low, at least the carrier should be visible also later, so I think they do not broadcast on this fq after 0610v?

Hi MAUNO

Yes, I have not confirmed the broadcast after the end of 1600/1630.
I think Aoki gave me the old information as a reference with quotes
from old documents.

I am busy with work and I have not heard the radio at all these days :-(((

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

Now I am only hearing Xizang PBS (Tibet - Lhasa), with no QRM; // 4920 // 6130.

Hi Amano,

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

Overall good conditions today (Oct 31).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PAPUA NEW GUINEA[non-log]. Checking again for any activity on 3260 & 3325 (both NBC) and 7325 (WRL), but all found
totally silent at 0950 UT, Nov 4.

VANUATU. 5040, Radio Vanuatu, 1008 UT till end of audio at 1105, on Nov 4. Well above average reception:

1008-1023: News/Sports scores; item about "pro-independence" for New Caledonia, etc.

1023-1033: Island music/singing.

1033-1042: Preaching in Bislama.

1042-1103: Religious songs; some in English, some in Bislama.

1103-1105: Full SA with frequencies; NA (1105+, xmtr on for many hours with open carrier/dead air)

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

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

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

Did you change the super jamming configuration?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KOREA SOUTH. Monday (Nov 15) observations:

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

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

Voice of Freedom (6045). Am happy to report that the N. Korean pulsating jamming (formerly 0700-1100 UT) is now
totally silent, leaving very good reception here; Nov 14, at 0900 UT - time tone; station jingle "jinsil-e soli,
huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of truth, Voice of hope, Voice of Freedom Broadcast), "Jayu-e
solibangsong-eseo ohu 6 (yeoseos) sileul allyeodeulibnida" ("Voice of Freedom announces 6pm"), "Bodo gwangjang"
(News Plaza); after 0923, QRM from OTH radar.

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

SOLOMON ISLANDS[non-log]. 5020, nor 9545, SIBC. Recently has not been heard through Nov 17 (1255 UT).

TAIWAN. 7200, RTI, noted Nov 15 & 17, from 1030 to 1058* UT (strong open carrier already on by 1015); very
strong signal; excellent reception in Korean. No ham can compete with this killer signal.

(ex: 3480), at 1002 UT, with a good signal (no N. Korea jamming). ?VOP: 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600 // 9100
kHz. So they are back to their full six frequencies.

VOP - Bodo (News) - 1002-1019 UT - My audio is at http://bit.ly/3x4DNGf .
Gohyang-e on pyeonji (A letter from home) - 1019 UT - My audio is at http://bit.ly/3FBzaql .

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

Fortunately, there is no North Korean super Jamming around 5995 kHz and 6015 kHz.
After 1235 UT, a Myanmar song program by two DJs, male and female.
After 1300 UT, it was a Myanmar ethnic music program by a male DJ.
At 1328 UT, music like SJ for less than a minute. It sounds like singing "~ kHz" in Burmese lyrics.
After that, female announcements, IS, gong rung, and male talks followed.

Hi Amano,

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

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

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

The really short music was a Myanmar radio station single, wasn't it?
Certainly it announces three frequencies on the song.

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.

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: Australia - Unique Radio (120 watts) log and E-QSL Ron Howard - Nov 27 (Sat), 2021 05:20 UTC No.4999

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

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

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

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

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

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

KOREA SOUTH. Monday (Nov 29) observations:

Echo of Hope - VOH - This week on 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100; at 0851 UT;
weekday EBS (Educational Broadcasting System) produced English news and Korean. N. Korea jamming
is getting smarter, as at 0810, the jamming was on ex 4880, but by 0851, jamming had already moved
up to block VOH on 4885. They have learned that Monday is when VOH changes frequencies!

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

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

Nov 30 - KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on 6015, continues to be free of the former white noise jamming from NK;
at 1159 UT, two frequencies given; time pips; audio feed from the TV KBS news at 9 (1200 UT = 9:00 PM KST);
SA after each news item as "K-B-S News"; these news programs are posted daily to YouTube (today's show - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgdGTQv5tV8 ); QRM from a much weaker station, probably PBS Xinjiang.

SOLOMON ISLANDS[non-log]. 5020, nor 9545, SIBC. Continues to be silent when checking through 1010 UT, on
Nov 29. On Nov 30, not heard through 1105.

U S A. 1710-AM, KHMB, 0756 UT, Nov 29. Listening to my favorite one watt station up the coast at Half Moon
Bay (Calif.); weak, but songs IDable; Barry White - "My First My Last My Everything," etc.; very light QRM

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.

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

"The poet, Jang Jin-Sung, used to be a citizen and well renowned poet of North Korea. Kim Jong-Il even read and
appreciated his work. In 2004, he left for South Korea and published several memoirs on living conditions in the
North. This poem, published in a collection, shows the poor quality of life of the working class. Jang Jin-Sung

1200 - Single tone; "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob) sileul allyeodeulibnida." (In English - Voice of Freedom
has announced 9pm); singing station jingle - "jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of Truth,
Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom broadcast); "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza). My audio is at https://bit.ly/3pVipRL .

1215 - Program "Dodbogilo boneun sesang" (The world through a magnifying glass). My audio is
at https://bit.ly/3qROs4q .

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

Observations on Jan 6 (Thursday):

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

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

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

Re: Voice of Freedom back on 6045 kHz & program schedule. Amano - Jan 10 (Mon), 2022 20:05 UTC No.5013
Hi! Ron-san
Thank you for checking the VOF program and back on 6045 kHz (ex 5920).
That was very helpful for me.
Once the VOF program schedule is known to some extent, I will be posted on the VOF thread.
Please wait for a little while.

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

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

Amano - Thank you for Mt. Fiji picture. Very nice!

KOREA SOUTH. Observations on Jan 10:

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

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

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

sign on (*1228* *1229+ UT); in Chinese; started with several commercial announcements; the first ad seemed
to be about buying a new house and remodeling; company provides design, materials, and construction. They
also can provide furniture and kitchen appliances. [It should be noted that new houses in China are not livable,
and buyers need to install bathrooms, a kitchen, etc.]. while the second ad was about Chinese music, inviting
people to listen to their music; at 1230, the start of “J?ngdi?n y?nyue q?ng f?xian huaren shishang p?ntu“
(program titled Chinese Fashion Mosaic Music Edition); VOJL totally covering up Tibet. My audio is

KOREA SOUTH. 6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, at 1200 UT, on Jan 11. Time pips; audio feed from the TV KBS news
at 9 (1200 UT = 9:00 PM KST); ID after each news item as "K-B-S News"; these news programs are posted to YouTube
( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgVMWA2SUC4 ); lead story was of a building that partially collapsed during
construction in Gwangju, S. Korea; light jamming underneath KBS.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1230-1345, on Jan 12. Outstanding reception today; about the best ever; excepted
to hear the Wednesday edition of "Say It In English" language lesson, but was not aired today; 1328+, usual BoH
format (their local ToH); nice three "kilohertz" station's singing jingle, with 5985 kHz. (Ngarr koe shit ngarr
kilohertz), 576 kHz. (Ngarrrar hkunait s y hkyawwat kilohertz) and 594 kHz. (Ngarrrar koe s y layy kilohertz);

through Jan 23 (Sunday). Noted VOH (6355) before 1046, with very good reception; covered at *1046, start
of the N. Korea jamming.

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

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

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

CHINA. A reminder that Feb 1 (Tuesday) is Chinese New Year (year of the Tiger). Every year I monitor all the
Chinese SW stations to hear if any of them have coverage of the Chinese New Year's Eve (Spring Festival) Gala,
broadcast with the CCTV audio feed. Some stations carry full (non-stop) coverage, while others have only partial
(occasional) coverage. The festivities start on Jan 31 (Monday) at 1200 UT and continue for about four and a half
hours. Normally Voice of Strait (both 4900 & 4940) will have coverage; also check for either CNR1 or CNR2 (China

have noted Qinghai ("Qinghai News Comprehensive Broadcasting") on 6145 kHz. with coverage. Is a good opportunity
to find many Chinese stations running parallel programming. The gala consists of comedy performances, songs, dance,
acrobatics, magic, Chinese opera and even foreign celebrities.

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

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

1019-1028: Island music/songs.

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

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

1046-1103: More religious songs

1103-1104: ending audio with the National Anthem.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CHINA. 5050, Beibu Bay Radio, 1516-1517 UT, Feb 5. The usual brief spot in English; recently about
Hainan Island's famous foods (Wenchang chicken, Jiaji duck, etc.).

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

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

INDONESIA. 3325, VOI, via Palangkaraya, 0951 UT, Feb 9. Recently had been off the air; today extremely
rare reception to hear their carrier this early (normally about *1100); by 1014, faint patriotic song “Bagimu

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, on Feb 11, running hours past their former cut off time (0954:25* UT, on Feb 3);
heard 0937 UT, till past 1225; pop songs (Foreigner - "I Want To Know What Love Is," Michael Bolton - "How
Am I Supposed To Live Without You," Cliff Richard - "We Don't Talk Anymore," Bette Midler - "Wind Beneath
My Wings," Whitney Houston - "Saving All My Love For You," etc.). Is this their usual seasonal schedule change?

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

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

KOREA SOUTH. back to their alternate frequency of 5920 (ex: 6045), Voice of Freedom, 1156 UT, Feb 11. Closing SA
for the "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowledge is power) program; 1200, the usual single tone; then "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo

at 1126; cut off in mid-sentence; no NA at all today.

UNID[suspect MONGOLIA]. 4895, Mongolian Radio, on March 13, first noted at 1133 with definite
carrier; later at 1240 carrier was much stronger, but unable to make out any audio; this format is
consistent with their past receptions here; checked for their // 7260, but that was blocked with a
strong station. I daily check 4895 and it has been a long time since I last heard anything. Do not
believe it is the ghost of AIR Kurseong, hi! Might be worthwhile to check this frequency.

March 12, at 1005 UT, I also confirmed both Sarawak FM (9835) and Wai FM (11665) were off the air.
Sent off an email to RTM. Still missing March 13, at 1240 UT check.

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

Dear Ron Howard,

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

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

Thank you.

No signals heard with random checking 0810-1000 UT:

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

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

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

BTW - Overall conditions seemed decent. Radio 4KZ (5055) heard slightly above the norm; Frankie Valli
and The 4 Season - "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," Donna Summer - "She Works Hard For The Money," etc.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

permission for people to be able to return to their hometown for the celebration of Eid al-Fitr (official holiday to
celebrate the end of the month long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan), still some concerns about COVID-19
and gave vaccination requirements; 1315-1317, the national song “Bagimu Negeri.”

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

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

For the past month have often been monitoring Fu Hsing BS (Taiwan). Am now regularly hearing all three
frequencies (9410 // 9774 // 15375); May 18, sounded like a language lesson at 0848 UT; have consistently
been hearing 0900* during weekdays, but have not checked on the weekend, so not sure if they have an
extended one hour schedule then? 15375 (good signal in USB, with extremely weak LSB) is by far the best
frequency and can normally be heard about an hour before I can hear 9410 // 9774. The poorest frequency
is certainly 9774.

broadcasts at 7:30 pm (1130 UT) on Wednesdays and Saturdays; it will talk about health information and
life reflections, which can change your life; then it gives out the email address and asks listeners to share
where they have heard the station; if listeners have missed any broadcast, they can go to the audio streaming
at their website. Email: info@rongyaoshenghuo.com and website: https://www.rongyaoshenghuo.com . The

Hi Amano - Greetings from California!

Wai FM (11665), on June 2, heard at 1348 UT with their unique chanting (prayer?);?
at 1400* went?off the air. I have NOT heard Sarawak FM (9835) for a long time now.

YES, something is certainly?different now! In the past, for a long time Wai FM was
heard with?poor?to very poor reception, along with poor audio (over-modulated),
while Sarawak FM (9835) was?well heard with good?audio. Then on March 12, I first
noted both frequencies were off the air for?a while; later Wai FM returned to the
air, while?Sarawak FM remained off (still unheard through?June 2).?

Wai FM has recently been heard very well?and with good?audio!!?

So?I conclude that Wai FM is now?via the former Sarawak FM transmitter, which would
explain?the improved reception and absence of?any Sarawak FM reception.

Anyway, that is what I believe has happened.

Hi Ron-san - Greetings from Saitama, Japan!
Thank you for the Wai FM transmitter information.

On June 2, listening to Ron-san’s short audio (Wai FM on 11665) of a pop song, it's clear that there's no bad modulation of the same sound with a delay of a few seconds.
I want to check Sarawak FM on 9835, too.

I also listened to your audio of Radio Vanuatu on 11835 harmonic.
The ID is very clear and it is a wonderful audio.
Nice catch!

Sign of the times: For many years now I have been going to my local beach to listen to SW. In the past
I was normally the only car parked there in the middle of the night. Was extremely rare to have another
car parked anywhere along the road by the beach. Now it is common place to find as many as ten vehicles
(mostly passenger cars, or a few small vans/SUVs) parked by the beach. People are clearly sleeping in
their cars overnight, thereby saving money by not staying at a motel. Monterey is a very active tourist area
and I believe most of the cars at the beach at night must just be tourists. I seem to be the only regular
visitor to the beach in the middle of the night.

KOREA NORTH[non]. Shiokaze/Sea Breeze; currently 5935 // 6070, during 1300-1400 UT. Am I the only
one who has noticed that it is no longer being jammed by N. Korea? Yes, it has been free of jamming
for some weeks now. Wonder what happened?

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, at 1124 UT, on June 6 (Monday); 3980 // 4885 // 5990 // 6250 // 6348
// 9100 (the best reception, with no jamming, but recently has been heard being jammed earlier); start of the
audio feed from TV English language lesson "Wang cho bo yeong-eo", with "Mayu" and "Mini"; "I have
lost my watch," "I have forgotten my password," "Thank God we have an air conditioner here!" "Thank
God you are my husband!". These frequencies should be good through June 12 (Sunday).

Voice of the People, at 1200 UT, on June 6; start of news in Korean ("Bodo"); 3480 (best reception, with
no jamming) // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600.

Voice of Freedom is again on 6045, where it is blocked by very strong super jamming from N. Korea;
while ex: 5920 is a clear frequency. Also hearing N. Korean super jamming again on 6135, against no
known station?

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 5020, SIBC, extended broadcast; still on the air with pop songs at 1320 UT, June 6;
very low modulation. Question - When was the last time SIBC was heard on 9545 kHz.? Is it ever in use now?

VANUATU. 11835 harmonic, Radio Vanuatu, *0559-0733 UT, June 6. Outstanding reception; very readable;
fairly easy to follow what is being said in Bislama, as there are a good number of English words used. I find
this station to be very entertaining!

0623: Information about the celebrations taking place in the UK for the Queen reigning for 70 years; mentions
Vanuatu's independence in 1980.

0629: Announcement in English for media training ("special course"); requested cover letters be sent to ABC
Australia ("ABC.net.au").

0631-0640: Usual segment of "messages" in Bislama; job available with the Customary Land Management Office of

Re: China - CHBC (6185 kHz.) and Voice of Strait (4900 & 4940 kHz.) Ron Howard - Jun 25 (Sat), 2022 20:20 UTC No.5077
CHINA. Recently CHBC (6185 kHz.) was off the air due to routine maintenance, but on June 24 noted
them back again (1030+ UT). Now I want to share the following article that was forwarded to me by
Dr. Hansjorg Biener (Germany), presenting a political analysis from a Taiwanese viewpoint. Appreciate
very much receiving this info.

https://globaltaiwan.org/2017/02/15-gtb-2-7/

"The Role of PLA Base 311 in Political Warfare against Taiwan (Part 3) - By Elsa B. Kania

Elsa Kania is an analyst at the Long Term Strategy Group.

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) utilizes techniques and methods associated with the “three warfares” to target
Taiwan, particularly through the efforts of the former General Political Department’s (GPD) Base 311 (61716 部隊),
its “Public Opinion Warfare, Psychological Warfare, and Legal Warfare Base” (輿論戰心理戰法律戰基地). Base 311,
which has its headquarters in Fujian, within Fuzhou province, seemingly oversees at least six regiments that are
responsible for engaging in the three warfares against Taiwan, including through multiple forms of propaganda.

While a comprehensive analysis of Base 311 would be beyond the scope of this article, an overview of its recent
activities offers an illustration of its efforts to influence public opinion in Taiwan, including through associated
proxy organizations, in peacetime. In a wartime scenario, Base 311’s engagement in the three warfares could be
impacted by the PLA’s organizational reforms, which may enable increased coordination of these political warfare
activities with information warfare.

Targeting Taiwan in Peacetime

In peacetime, Base 311’s employment of the three warfares has included the utilization of a commercial front, the
China Huayi Broadcasting Corporation (中國華藝廣播公司, CHBC). Established in 1991, CHBC focuses on
Taiwan-related content, including the Voice of the Taiwan Strait. CHBC describes itself as seeking to “promote
Chinese culture” and emphasizes that, “cohering [凝聚] compatriots’ feelings” is the company’s abiding purpose.
Its coverage of Taiwan is routinely negative, often highlighting political contention and social issues.

While there is relatively limited information available regarding the activities of Base 311 itself, CHBC maintains a
much higher public profile, including through its involvement in multiple cross-Strait forums and exchanges. Typically,
the commander of Base 311 is dual-hatted as the CEO (or chairman, 董事長) of CHBC. Major General Wang Shu
(汪?), who became the commander of Base 311 in 2010, was concurrently the chairman of CHBC. Since Wang
Shu was promoted to become the director of the Nanjing Political Institute in 2015, there has been no official
announcement regarding who would take over his role as commander of Base 311. However, since about mid-2015,
Qiu Yu (邱雨) has been identified as the chairman of CHBC,[1] which may be an indication that he has taken on the
role of commander of Base 311 as well. Since there is minimal information available about him under that name, he
may also use a pseudonym to distinguish his PLA and CHBC personas.

In peacetime, CHBC’s attempts to influence public opinion have involved organizing cross-Strait exchanges, including
the following, held within several months of each other in 2016:

In August, CHBC was involved in organizing a cross-Strait college students’ exchange involving a community activities
planning competition held in Fuzhou. In September, CHBC organized activities on “Sun Yat-sen thought” for students
from elite Taiwanese universities that highlighted his commitment to national unification (国家?一) and national
rejuvenation (民族振興). In November, CHBC, along with partners including the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office
and the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait, organized a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of
the birth of Sun Yat-sen that brought together youth delegates from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, and mainland China.
In his remarks, Qiu Yu (邱雨) called for promoting the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations and the great
rejuvenation of the Chinese nationality (中華民族的偉大復興).

Beyond CHBC’s broadcasting and propaganda activities, Base 311 also appears to be linked to the Collaborative
Innovation Center for the Peaceful Development of Cross-Strait Relations (兩岸關係和平發展協同創新中心). Ai Songru
(艾松如), a psychological warfare specialist in the PLA, has been identified by multiple sources as CHBC’s Director
and General Manager (董事、總經理), since at least 2011, under the pseudonym Ai Ke (艾克), seemingly to distinguish his
PLA and CHBC activities.[2] Ai Songru has also been described as the executive director of the Collaborative Innovation
Center for the Peaceful Development of Cross-Strait Relations. This center, established in 2012 at Xiamen University,
has the objective and mandate “to promote the peaceful development of cross-strait relations and eventually reunify
the nation.” In particular, it seeks to become “the most authoritative and influential source of information and
scholarship on Taiwan studies in the world.”

These attempts to establish its authoritativeness and influence public opinion on Taiwan have included hosting a
variety of events and exchanges related to issues in cross-Strait relations, including the Dajiang Forum; frequent
publications in Chinese-language and English-language platforms; and participation in international conferences.
Although its activities may appear relatively innocuous, the linkage of CICCSR to CHBC and thus to Base 311 indicates
the intention to influence that underlies its engagement with Taiwanese and international audiences.

The Future of the Three Warfares in Wartime?

Looking forward, Base 311’s position and function within the PLA may evolve as a result of the ongoing organizational
reforms. There are indications that Base 311, previously subordinate to the former GPD, may now be under the aegis
of the PLA’s new Strategic Support Force (戰略支援部隊), based on a number of personnel transfers. Although there is
not yet a definitive indication that this change has occurred, such a shift would be consistent with a broader pattern
in which the majority of the four former General Departments’ operational units appear to have been transferred to
the SSF.

The transfer of Base 311 to the SSF could reflect the PLA’s intensified focus on ensuring the operational impact of
the three warfares in a warfighting context (see part 2). In practice, the conceptual framework of the three warfares
is closely linked to the PLA’s strategic thinking on information warfare, which incorporates cyber warfare, electronic
warfare, and also psychological warfare. In this regard, a potential organizational shift could prelude an enhanced
focus on integrating the three warfares into information operations on the battlefield. In particular, the potential coordination of the PLA’s cyber and psychological warfare capabilities could enable more effective “cyber psychological warfare.”

At this point, it is unclear how and to what extent Base 311’s activities, including those of its front organizations,
will continue to be coordinated with other key actors in the PLA’s political work/warfare system in the future.
For instance, there are indications that Base 311 previously collaborated with or otherwise provided support to
he former GPD Liaison Department (總政治部聯絡部), the Chinese Communist Party’s Taiwan Propaganda Leading Small Group,
and also the Taiwan Affairs Leading Small Group, based on reports of interactions with figures from these organizations.
Such collaborations will likely continue, but the coordination of these various political warfare activities could
remain a challenge for the PLA.

Conclusion

The PLA’s efforts to target Taiwan in peacetime have involved extensive propaganda and also exchange activities
organized by front organizations. In wartime, Base 311 would take on a much more active, combat-oriented function,
in coordination with kinetic and information operations. Although the design of effective countermeasures against the
three warfares could prove challenging, further attempts to enhance transparency regarding these activities and their
underlying intentions may constitute an initial step toward undermining their efficacy."

- - - - - - This corresponds nicely with what I had been reading about the Voice of Strait (4900 & 4940 kHz.):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voice_of_the_Strait

"In 2015 the unit which operates Voice of the Strait was transferred from the People's Liberation Army General Political
Department to the People's Liberation Army Strategic Support Force becoming PLASSF Base 311. Base 311 (also
known as PLA Unit 61716) is primarily responsible for psychological warfare operations against Taiwan."

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.

Radio Vanuatu - Am happy to find they are now giving frequent SAs as "Radio Vanuatu, Vois Blong Yumi."
They continue to have decent reception on 11835 (3rd harmonic of 3945) !! SAs & weather audio attached.

Hi Ron-san
いつもありがとうございます。
Your audio of Radio Vanuatu is so amazing!
SAs as "Radio Vanuatu, Vois Blong Yumi." (00:07-00:10, 01:23-01:26) can be heard clearly.
Thank you for the information about Korea.
Based on your information, I heard VOF today.

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom (ex: 6045), Aug 17, from 0753- UT.
Start VOF without jamming.
But about 1 minute later, North Korea started bubble jamming.

Re: Shiokaze with new frequencies today Ron Howard - Aug 25 (Thu), 2022 14:28 UTC No.5090
First day on alternate frequency of 5935 (ex 5920 - so the Voice of Freedom [Korea] is now in the clear) 
// 6070 (ex 6040), Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, via Yamata (Japan), from 1303+ UT (10:03 PM JST); scheduled 13-14 UT,
on Aug 25. Found 5935 with very poor reception due to Shiokaze now blocking the usually fair reception I
formerly had from Tibet (PBS Xizang); while 6070 was fairly good. There really is no need now for these
periodic changes of frequencies, as N. Korea stopped jamming Shiokaze a while ago (believe it was in
mid-May they ended all the jamming of Shiokaze).

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.

VANUATU. 7932, Radio Vanuatu, 0535-0659* UT Sept 6. Again being heard, but on this new frequency; seems this must
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
highlights (in general they played a lot of nice island music!):

0535-0544 UT: Phone interview.

0555-0600: Usual series of PSAs, commercial announcements, etc.

0600-0603: News in Bislama; unreadable.

0630-0640: Weather update for the many provinces.

0656: Advertisement for sugarcane products produced by "83 Islands Distillery" [ https://83islands.com/ ]

Sept 7 - After 0659* UT (3:59* PM JST) on 7932 kHz., I went looking for Vanuatu. Not on the usual frequencies.

Found Radio Vanuatu on new 8620.22 kHz., as measured on my old Eton E1 (am sure someone can
get a more accurate measurement!); mostly fair; // 4310.11 (poor) // 12930.33 (very poor).

0705-0716 UT (4:05-4:16 PM JST): News/sports in Bislama.

0731-0801: Interview in English about investments (talking about gov't bonds, National Bank, low interest
rate loans, interest rates, "Investments not all in one basket," etc.).

0802+: Speech in Bislama about domestic violence in Vanuatu, violence against women, Vanuatu's Women
Center, etc.

VANUATU. Sept 10 observations:

7932, Radio Vanuatu heard 0633-0659* UT. At 0633: The usual segment of messages, but today was in French,
instead of the usual Bislama; 0637 the segment ending with the usual indigenous drums; 0638 till suddenly
cut off at 0659*, with Island songs.

8620+, Radio Vanuatu, *0659 UT, suddenly started 10 seconds after 7932 went off the air:

0701-0712 UT: News/sports in Bislama (interesting sound bite of an historic address made to a crowd in Vanuatu,
back on April 7, 2018, during the visit of Prince Charles, when he was given the title and name of honorary high
chief Mal Menaringmanu; ending his address with "Vanuatu, you number one!". My audio posted at https://bit.ly/3qu7Rss ).

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar (External Service), was unusually poor today; *1224 UT with test
tone; 1227, start of their IS, but otherwise unusable; mixing with CNR1.

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, broadcasting from Palangkaraya, still silent (1207+ UT).

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope -VOH, after two consecutive weeks on the same frequencies, VOH has finally
again made a Monday change:

3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 // 6350.0 // 9105, at 1147 UT; the EBS TV audio feed for "Wang cho bo yeong-eo,"
which is always aired only on weekdays; 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"); 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;
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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

National Unity Radio, 9475, from 1245 to 1246 UT, with brief Chinese language lesson; started and ended with
Joyce Chu singing "Hao xiang ni - I Miss You“; mostly in Korean; gave a few words in Chinese and a sentence
using the words; fair; strong N. Korea jamming noted at 1158, but NUR was strong enough to mostly block out
the jamming after *1200.

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

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

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

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

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

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

SAs at ToH - "Sichu?n minzu gu?ngbo, Sichuan Ethnic Radio"; indigenous music/singing; 6060 slightly better
reception.

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

VOH: On 9100, April 9 (Friday), at 1154 UT, with the weekday EBS (Educational Broadcasting System -
https://www.ebs.co.kr/main ) produced English language lesson; as always with a good signal (audio
attached). On Sunday (11th), at 0729, the weekend only reading of a Harry Potter story in both English
and Korean. Seems that all the VOH English language programs (news, etc.) are from EBS FM. VOH
continuing with a repeating four hour program loop.

National Unity Radio, 9475, from 1245 to 1246 UT, on April 16 (Friday) with brief Chinese language lesson;
started and ended with Joyce Chu singing "Hao xiang ni - I Miss You“; mostly in Korean; gave a few words
in Chinese and a sentence using the words; "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
April 19; totally unusable signal.

April 19 (Monday), with frequencies for this week:

Voice of the People: 3480 // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1115 UT.

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3990 // 4885 // 6000 (QRM) // 6250 // 6355 // 9100, at 1105 UT.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1530-1559 UT, April 14 (Wednesday). The usual English segment;
1539, "We Are Unity" song after the news and "weather news"; 1551, Wed. only "VOA Words and
Their Stories" program ("On March 17 in many places around the world, people celebrate Saint
Patrick’s Day," etc.); 1559 blocked by CRI start-up.

of workers . . 'Give and take' is about many things . . They still have bosses . . Adults need 8 hours
of sleep . . I am an early riser . . I always get to bed early," etc.; semi-readable.

VANUATU. 3945 // 7890 (harmonic) // 11835 (harmonic, with best reception), Radio Vanuatu, 1034-1100 UT,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I also listened to Myanmar Radio on 9730 kHz before 1100 UT when KNLS started.

MYANMAR. 9730, Myanmar Radio, 1000-1100 UTC, Apr. 28 (Wednesday).
At 1000 UT, the strong signal CNR1 Jammer stopped.
I heard female Burmese and SOH Chinese.
The signal on Myanmar Radio was a little weak at first, but over time the signal came up.
It became quite easy to hear around 1100 UT, but I was still worried about SOH Chinese interference.
KNLS, Alaska carrier on at 1059’38“ UT.

Hi Amano - Greetings from California!

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

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

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

However, the interference of CNR5 on the upper side was strong.

MALAYSIA. 11665, RTM Wai FM, 1310-1400* UTC, May 4 (Tuesday).
As Ron says, the sound is certainly bad.
It feels like the broadcast sound is delayed by a few seconds and the same sound is mixed with a distorted sound.
Even though the signal is strong, it's a shame.
The broadcast stopped just at 1400 UTC.
The end time seems to vary slightly from day to day. (-1400v *)
After the Wai FM stopped, I checked Sarawak FM on 9835 kHz and found that it had already stopped.

Ron-san - I listened to your audio, the unique Wai FM SA's.
It sounds very good and is enjoy to listen to.
A lot of unique SA’s also were broadcast on May 4 at Wai FM on 11665 kHz from 1311 UTC.
A song that included Sarawak in the lyrics that was broadcast just before the end of the broadcast on May 3 was also broadcast at this timing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May 10, again no RV signal on 7260, at 0559*, nor on 3945 (7890H // 11835H) at *0559 UT.

At 0637 UT, noted an UNID on 5040 kHz. with a very poor signal; 0650, dramatic, sudden improvement in
reception (transmitter adjusted?); 0655, SAs for both "Radio Vanuatu" and "Voice of Papua New Guinea";
cut off 0659*. On 7890 (harmonic), found a new starting time of *0659 UT; from 0704 to 0728, news/

Bryan Clark (New Zealand) kindly checked for the new Radio Vanuatu schedule. His reply on May 10:

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

Thanks to Bryan for updating the new schedule.

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

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, 1755-1905, May 10 (Monday).
There was a bit of North Korean jamming, but the VOF sounded clear.
The ending of "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is power) was heard very well.
My audio is at https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4718.mp3 .
At 1800, there was a station name, a time signal announcement, and VOF SJ before the start of "Bodo gwangjang (News plaza)".
After that, the program proceeded according to the VOF's one-day program guide.
VOF's one-day program guide is at https://radio.chobi.net/DX/bbs/?res:4826 .
At 1900, "Haengboghan Daehanmingug (Happy Republic of Korea)“ starts.
North Korean jamming was a little noticeable.

Hi Amano,

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

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

At 1200 UT, station name, a time signal announcement, and VOF SJ before the start of "Bodo gwangjang" - News plaza.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi Amano,

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

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

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

with CNR2 (BTW - On May 12, Wednesday, noted CNR2 here before 0600, but clearly off the air after
0600+). Mostly playing island songs, but here are a few points of interest:

0604-0619: Drama in Bislama.

0659-0700: Promo for the upcoming May 17-18 "ICT Days" (Information and Communication Technologies),

Today's good reception very well.
There is no interference of the same wave SOH.
At 1059, after signed on KNLS, Myanmar waves recede.

Female Burmese is comfortable voice to hear.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

extended broadcasting (0900-1000*) varies a lot; have heard 1000*, instead of their normal 0900*,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heard the identical English language lesson ("Say It In English") for the first time back on Aug 7, 2017 and
heard repeated again on Feb 5, 2018 and yet again on April 28, 2021. Is still fun to listen to the comical

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

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

Here are a few of my recent logs:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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;

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.

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

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

TAIWAN. 9410 // 9774 // 15375, Fu Hsing BS, heard with weekday schedule of 1000* (weekends with 0900*).
Very nice to catch all three frequencies!

VANUATU. From 1015+, no RV today on 3945 nor 7890(H) (11835[H], covered by CNR2).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH (??????): On 4890, from 1521’46“ to 1551’27“ UT (29:41), on August 15 (Sunday).

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).

At the beginning of the program, a man says "English ~".
Do you know what he is saying?
Is he saying "English Supa 'ginner" or "English Super Beginner"?

Hi Amano - Thank you so very much for the additional helpful information. Very interesting!

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

Appreciate your great research!

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

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

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

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

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

KOREA SOUTH. 5920, VOF, 1726-2135 UT, Sept 3 (Friday), 0226-0635 KST/JST, Sept 4 (Saturday).
At the start of the check, North Korean pulse jamming against Shiokaze (1600-1700 UTC) continued.

1730 - "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing is power)

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

My reception audio for 1 minute after the start of the program after 1820 is https://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/img/4756.mp3 .
* 00:00-01:00, 1820 - “Salang-i neomchineun ulijib“ (My home full of love)
* 01:00-02:00, 1830 - "Hanla-eseo Baegdukkaji" (From Halla to Baekdu)
* 02:00-03:00, 1900 - "Haengboghan Daehanmingug" (Happy Republic of Korea)

Re: Japan - HFD Radio Station JG2XA Ron Howard - Sep 06 (Mon), 2021 14:50 UTC No.4942

Sent off an email to Professor Keisuke Hosokawa (University of Electro - Communications) reporting the
absence of both 5006 and 8006 kHz. Received the following informative email. They are now broadcasting
with about 60W, so much lower than their former 200W.

Email received from <keisuke.hosokawa@uec.ac.jp> and <hfd-all-ml@uec.ac.jp>:

"Dear Ron,

Thank you very much for your message!

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

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

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

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Keep in touch!

from 5910 (CRI), but otherwise clear reception.

5985, Myanmar Radio, 1253-1305, Sept 10. Friday edition of "Say It In English"; first heard this identical show
back on Feb 19, 2018; dialogue at a "sales conference," "May I introduce myself?", "Let me introduce myself,"
"How do you do?", "Nice to meet you," "May I introduce Tom Carter?", "Pleased to meet you," "Please call me Tom,"

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

5020 - Checking randomly 1205 to past 1415 UT; no ID, but format consistent to be a Wantok FM relay; 99% non-stop

KOREA SOUTH. 9105 (same frequency as last week), Echo of Hope - VOH, Sept 20 (Monday), at 1535, 
the weekday TV audio feed for the English language lesson ("Wang cho bo yeong-eo" - Beginner's
English); in Korean and English; this conforms to their four hour program loop; these programs
can be heard at 0735 & 1135 & 1535 UT.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

on 3985 // 5995 // 6350, at 0723 UT.

Observed on Monday, Oct 18

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

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

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

Echo of Hope - VOH (??????): On 9100 kHz., from 0440 to 0453 UT, on Oct 19. The EBS's (Educational
Broadcasting System) produced English "Morning Headlines" program, which is also a language lesson; with
a new and different format today; in the past was always Sue Choi in English, followed by a lot of
explanations in Korean regarding the news items; today still with Sue, but with a young man chatting in

Hi Amano - Do you happen to know anything about this station, other than it is religious and broadcasting to N. Korea?
I appreciate any observations or comments! Ron

Oct 19 (Tuesday) - Sae Nala Bangsong (New Country Broadcasting) via RRTM Telecom Tashkent (per Ivo), on 9585, from
*1600 to 1630* UT; in Korean; fair-good reception; first time I have checked on this religious station broadcasting
to N. Korea; intro frequency (S-W, gu - oh - pal - oh [SW 9585]); sounded like preaching and religious song; at 1626,
a clear "Amen." My 1600-1615 UT audio is posted at http://bit.ly/3jimMm8 . Station is only on Tue/Thu/Sun.

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

Sae Nala Bangsong (New Country Broadcasting), is a religious radio station presented by Sons and Daughters Company,
of South Korea. The CEO and founder is Matthew Bahng. The company creates and delivers hopeful messages packed with
new sounds to attract all demographics of North Koreans. They know for a fact that their programs are already making
an impact in people's lives in North Korea and this is one project that will continue and will not stop until they
become one as a nation. Sons & Daughters Company aims to arouse the interest of North Koreans and people around the
world by delivering messages through creative and modern content. Little by little, they are seeing results. They are
confident that this project will have a positive impact on youth in North Korea and around the world. Intro video in
English - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13kzzSo4Ojg . Sons and Daughters Company homepage in Korean - https://www.sonsanddaughtersco.com/ .

Thanks very much to pasar malam for his wonderful help!

KOREA NORTH/SOUTH. July 13 (Monday) observed frequencies:

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

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

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

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

VANUATU. 11835 (third harmonic of 3945 kHz.), Radio Vanuatu, on July 15, with an excellent
marathon listening session; 0230-0605 UT. As we get closer to their Independence Day (July 30),
I'm hearing more and more brief spots about independence; my favorite one is with the choral NA
("Yumi, Yumi, Yumi") and national slogans (my audio at http://bit.ly/38Z0i3k ).

0230-0330: Hour in French.

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

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

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

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

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

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

CHINA. 9630 // 11630, CNR17, on July 18 (Saturday), from 1229 to 1259. The weekend?schedule for 
their half hour language lesson; unlike?the English lesson last Sat., today it?was in Russian.
Starts with usual multi-language intro ("Hi, Hello, N? h?o [Chinese for?"Hello"], How are?you?,"
etc.); the lesson today seemed to just be repeating Russian?words; unlike last week, today the
whistling/humming was not so strong?and was indeedjust in the background. My local sunrise was
at 1303 UT. My audio is at http://bit.ly/3jku7Af .?Both frequencies were fair. ?

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

KOREA SOUTH. 9105, Echo of Hope - VOH, on July 18 (Saturday):

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Korean.?Good reception.?

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

VANUATU. 3945, Radio Vanuatu, 1104-1105, on Aug 1. National Anthem, followed by dead air (open

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

Is this something to do with "DX" ?

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

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

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

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

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

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar - External Service (formerly carried their 
Home Service); on Aug 5, noted the following:

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

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

Hi Komatsubara, 

Can you please tell me if the following is a Japanese language lesson or what is it?

Korea - Echo of Hope - VOH: 9105 kHz., 1248-1255 UT on Aug 10 (Monday). Seemed to be
a Japanese language lesson? My audio is at http://bit.ly/2DRe64x .

VOH - 9105, at 1236, on Aug 10; dramatization of the early life of Bill Gates; all in English.
My audio is at http://bit.ly/2XLDMGT .

Monday - Aug 10:

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3985 // 4890 // 5995 // 6255 (underneath a strong CNR1) // 6350 // 9105, at 1213.

Voice of the People: 3480 // 3910 // 3935 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1217.

Voice of Freedom: 5920, fair-good reception with no jamming, at 1219; super jamming still up on ex 6045.

Thank you very much!!!

Aug 13 (Thursday)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

surprised to find NBC Bougainville off the air and nice to have VOI with decent audio, although only able to
make out bits and pieces; tuned into filler instrumental music; 1300-1400, in English; news; promo for
Indonesia's Independence (their Independence Day was on the 17th); "Today in History" item seemed to
be about the Japanese in Indonesia publicly surrendered on August 22, 1945, etc.; musical selections;

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

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

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

Takahito Akabayashi for this additional helpful information. Ron (California).

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

News Program ? 666kHz 4940kHz 90.6MHz(Fuchou)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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