BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1119-1203*, on Aug 6. Pop songs
(Steve Winwood - "Higher Love," etc.); in Pidgin; suddenly off; no VOI QRM.

CONGO. 6115, Radio Congo, start up time (already in progress) at *0540, Aug 6.
Strong QRN (static); no QRM from Japan today; very respectable summertime
reception. My audio at http://bit.ly/33dTv2q . But on Aug 5, Congo was not
broadcasting (checked 0530-0600); even with considerable daylight in Japan
(sunset not till 0940 UT), clearly heard "RN2" playing mostly non-stop pop songs,
with ID at 0600.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1341, Aug 6. Language lesson ("Easy
English") in English and Korean; very readable; another day with native speaker of
English (Isaac); same program must have been broadcast two hours earlier (1141).
My clear audio at http://bit.ly/33dORBu .

LAOS. 6130, Lao National Radio, 1401, Aug 6. No longer on their recently heard abbreviated
schedule, but seems back to their former full programming; fairly sure was in English (matching
their schedule); 1407, break for some indigenous singing; strong adjacent QRM; much of the
time was unusable; at 1434, unable to confirm in French, but definitely broadcasting.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1204-1211* on Aug 6; in English; cut off in mid-
sentence.

TAIWAN. 6230, Sound of Hope, at 1300, on Aug 6 and listening in LSB to get away from Australia
weather station in USB. The usual OM & YL with "Xiwang zhi sheng guoji guangbo diantai" (Sound
of Hope international broadcast station) ID (thanks again to Amano-san's assistance); surprised to
have some very light QRM from Australia, as some of their faint audio showed up in LSB.

VIETNAM. 8812-USB, Ho Chi Minh Radio - Vietnam Coast Station, on Aug 6, *1240-1242* in
Vietnamese and *1242-1244* in English; starts with "Weather information for South China coastal
waters issued by the Hong Kong Observatory at 7:30PM, August 6," etc. Thanks very much to Wei
Wei (China), for his assistance. My audio at http://bit.ly/2OJUDrl .

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(22) - Ron Howard Aug 08 (Thu), 2019 19:17 UTC No.4058
BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar, Aug 8, with transmitter problems; at 1235, 
heard a hum (no English audio) and at 1325, still only hum (no Nepali audio); of course
CNR1 was also there. First time I have heard this BB anomaly.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1340, Aug 8. Language lesson ("Easy
English") in English and Korean; very readable; announcers "perky, perky Jenny" and
"happy Isaac." I was wrong, this program was no broadcast at 1140 nor 1240, so a new
schedule for this podcast.

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1300-1310, Aug 7 (Wednesday). Two programs
together of "Learning English with BBC, Burmese." So is this language lesson only on
Wed. & Fri.?

VIETNAM. 8812-USB, assume a VISHIPEL coastal station (site?); *1314-1320*, on Aug 8.
This segment only in Vietnamese; sounded like many mentions of "Hong Kong"; my local
sunrise was at 1319 UT.

Re: China - Voice of Strait anomaly - Ron Howard Aug 26 (Mon), 2019 14:33 UTC No.4069
CHINA. 4900 // 4940, Voice of Strait. What is happening with VOS? Significant anomaly on 
Aug 26. What normally happens 1200-1255 is that they are not in //, but today they were! In
the past always observed // from 1055 to 1200 and from 1255 to 1300, otherwise they were
not //, but today // 1203-1303 the whole time; 1203-1255, non-stop music; 1255-1300, the
usual Strait Fishery Meteorology report (Channel fishery weather); 1300, usual time pips,
Beijing time, announcer briefly in Chinese and went to playing Chinese opera music. A one
day event or some type
of test?

Aug 24 (Saturday), on 4940, VOS from 1430 to 1455, with the weekend program in English
"Focus on China"; not // 4900; SA as "Fresh, dynamic, professional, profound, explore Chinese
culture . . . You are now listening to Focus on China."

CHINA. 6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) relay via PBS Yunnan. On Aug 23, first noted BBS
(Bhutan) cutting off in mid-sentence (English) at 1135*; then *1139, suddenly on, in progress
with FM99 programs; at *1144 the start of the N. Korea jamming spur from 6045.

7210, PBS Yunnan, 1046, Aug 23. The usual IS (long playing loop of EZL music); unusual good
with no QRM; 1100, into programming. My clear audio at http://bit.ly/2HqOgTS . Aug 26, at 1058,
heard PBS IS, but today with heavy Sound of Hope QRM on frequency.

INDIA. 5040, AIR Jeypore, 1330-1345, Aug 25. Another day of special live coverage in English
(accented) and Hindi, of the India vs West Indies cricket match being held in Antigua; semi-readable;
into the news in Hindi.

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH, "Easy English," "podcast" on Aug 25, at 1347; the usual
strong signal, resulting in good reception. My audio at http://bit.ly/2zpF2Tf .

5857.5 AM, HLL2 Seoul. On Aug 26, pleasantly surprised to hear the clearest audio I have ever heard
here; normally is rather muffled; 1212-1218, in English; then into Japanese. My audio at
http://bit.ly/2zplkXW .

MONGOLIA. 7260, Mongolian Radio P3 (presume FM100.9 relay). On Aug 25, with decent signal, but
over-modulated; 1125, in vernacular and pop songs in English; recently doing much better over the QRM
on frequency. My audio (minute of talk, one of music) at http://bit.ly/2MLNXaD . The daily schedule is listed
at their Mongolian site http://bit.ly/2VjlexD (Google translation to English).

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1250-1300, Aug 23 (Friday). Two programs of "Learning English with
BBC, Burmese" (1st about discrimination in the workplace and 2nd about landlords changing too much rent
in London).

Craig Tyson noticed, that 15745 kHz is back on the air, but not carrying Tibet Chinese this time. I think the ID is Voice of the Old Age, so is 1053 kHz in maintenance?



Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(22) - Ron Howard Aug 28 (Wed), 2019 23:03 UTC No.4072

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville. Aug 25 & 26, not heard from 1100+; back on
the air Aug 27 & 28; at 1106, with local news in Pidgin; pop songs (Belinda Carlisle -
"Heaven Is A Place On Earth," etc.); on 28th, cut off at 1201*.

CHINA. 6035, FM99 (Voice of Shangri-la) relay via PBS Yunnan. On Aug 27, with anomaly;
noted they had a problem with the usual FM99 audio feed, but instead was running non-stop
western classical music for quite awhile; noted several times before and shortly after 1200;
very enjoyable; by 1213, back to normal FM99 audio feed; no QRM of any kind (no BBS and
no N. Korea jamming spur). My audio at http://bit.ly/2ZrX9qx .

KOREA SOUTH. 4885, Echo of Hope - VOH. Seems to be changing their schedule a lot these
days. Not long ago the 1240-1300 time slot was for the language lesson "Easy English," but that
was re-scheduled to different times. Checking Aug 27 & 28, heard a rather different program 1240+;
programming was unique in that it consisted of an audio of non-stop English, but was rather weak,
underneath a much stronger audio in Korean, with a running translation of the underlying English.
Perhaps a lecture? First time I have heard this, after almost daily monitoring. At 1300, the usual
"Onule Soshi" (Today's News). My audio at http://bit.ly/2MHgOg4 , with two minutes of the double
audio and one of "Onule Soshi."

VIETNAM [non]. 9670, Radio Dap Loi Song Nui (Vietnam Democracy Radio) (presumed), Aug 28,
at *1229, heard the start of the jamming from assume Vietnam, but surprised was not the usual
siren jamming as always heard in the past, but instead was a pulsating noise; *1230, start of Radio
Dap Loi Song Nui; poor and mostly unusable.

BANGLADESH. 4750, Bangladesh Betar (External Service), 1235-1300*, Aug 29. Finally
fixed the hum/buzzing noise here, but now over-modulated; in English and with subcontinent
chanting/singing; English unreadable due to poor audio quality and signal very fluttery; 1300*,
off for a few seconds and then back on with test tone. My audio of some of the music/chanting
at http://bit.ly/30I7Pyl .

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville. Aug 29, with an unusual day, as they ran somewhat
late (1213*) and unique to find NBC Madang (3260) closed down long before that; playing pop
Pacific Islands songs; surprised they had no 1200 news today; no VOI QRM.

KOREA NORTH[non]. new 5980 // 6070, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, ex: 5920 & 6040, Aug 29.
Changed back to their alternate frequencies today; 1311, with "Newsflash" items in English.

KOREA SOUTH. 6015, KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, August 29, a special treat 1216+, as
there was no N. Korea jamming today (very rare); jamming still off at last 1316 check; SAs
"K B S News," with several clips in English during the news; also very unique to have a chance
to hear the presumed PBS Xinjiang QRM underneath KBS. My audio at http://bit.ly/2PnK3ql .

Hi Amano,

Thank you so very much for this additional information.

AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, 1215-1248:30*, on Sept 1. Played all C&W songs; some
commercial announcements, but not strong enough to make out; cut off mid-song. My poor
quality audio at http://bit.ly/2MOs0aI . Still a challenge hear!

BTW - Nothing heard on the future additional frequency of 2484/2485.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang, 1121-1142, on Sept 1. Well above the norm;
a pleasure to hear the full SA for "NBC Madang, Maus Blong Garamut," along with a child
who seemed to say "90.7"; as it was Sunday, their usual religious programs (religious songs
and EZL music). My audio, starting with clear ID, at http://bit.ly/2Ujd6tS .

Re: 4885 kHz. with new SA - Ron Howard Sep 03 (Tue), 2019 20:59 UTC No.4077
Hi Amano,

Have you heard what is happening on 4885 kHz.? Seems to be some major changes.
Sept 3, from 1113 to 1335; no longer with the former distinctive "V O H" SAs; no
longer hearing the "Easy English" language lesson. 9100 noted off the air today,
otherwise // 3985 // 5995 // 6250 (much of the time also hearing Echo of Unification)
and // 6350; poor overall conditions today; most days I have much better reception.

Some highlights of today's reception:

1130-1200: Now with a unique language lesson that seems like more than 95% in
Korean and maybe less than 5% in English (nothing like "Easy English" format);
occasional brief spots in English during the half hour program, with all the English
put together again towards the end of the show. Have heard this for several days now.

1200-1210: Drama

1219: song - ABBA - "The Winner Takes It All"; all the other songs were in Korean.

1241-1250: Unique program with audio in English (weak), with stronger audio on top of
that in Korean, with running translation of the English underneath. Ends with audience
clapping, so perhaps a lecture or same type of presentation? Have heard this now for
several days.

1300-1313: Usual news program in Korean.

Amano - Can you hear what the new SA is? Thank you so very much!

Hello! Ron-san,

I always appreciate your information.

Your audio of several of the new SAs at http://bit.ly/2lCc9Q0

This audio is not SA, but the opening and ending of a radio drama.
The program name is “Radio History Theater”.
The Korean program name is “라디오 역사 극장(Radio Yeogsa Geugjang)“.

This program is produced by EBS, Korea.
Check the audio on the EBS website below.
You can see that your audio is parallel in opening and ending.

Hi Amano,

Thank you very much for your kind assistance. During my monitoring, I have not
recently heard the "V O H" SA. Normally at 15 minutes after the hour, at the end
of the news, I would hear the SA, but have not heard any VOH SA. Are they just
not giving the VOH SA as often as before?

As always, appreciate your comments and observations.

Re: Thazin Radio (Myanmar) on 7110 kHz.? - Ron Howard Sep 07 (Sat), 2019 16:27 UTC No.4081

MYANMAR. 7110, Thazin Radio (presumed), 1354-1425, Sept 7. It was back in 2012-2013 that
"Thazin Radio, Pyin Oo Lwin" was regularly heard on this frequency; fairly confident the language
heard today was Burmese; played easy-listening pop songs. So is this ex: 6165 kHz.? Today I
didn't start listening till fairly late, so this needs some earlier monitoring to find out just what is
happening here. Of course Myanmar should not be here at all, as it is in the ham band. My audio

carrier, but no audio detected. The only good thing about AIR Kurseong no longer being here,

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, on Sept 9, was a very
special day here. Not only was there audio, which is rather rare, but heard a song I had
not heard on SW for several years. I last reported hearing it back on Sept 6, 2017.

Today, 1400-1409 UT, with news and commentary in Bahasa Indonesia; followed by the
distinctive patriotic song "Garuda Pancasila" (aka: "Mars Pancasila"), which was
composed by Sudharnoto, with lyrics about the loyalty of all Indonesian people to
Pancasila as the only ideology or philosophy of the Indonesian nation. Am very
pleased with today's reception!

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on Sept 10, with major anomaly. During a time
when they should have been broadcasting (around 1130), they were clearly off the air for
quite awhile, but did hear them later, running several hours past their normal cut off
time (1200). Today heard 1158-1430+; "NBC News," 1203-1209 and "NBC News Roundup,"
1301-1307, both in English; no news at 1400; played mostly variety of pop songs (Diana
Ross & Lionel Richie - "Endless Love," etc.); after 1209, relay of programs in English
from Port Moresby, with numerous SAs for "This is NBC"; no Voice of Indonesia QRM.
Has been about three years since I last heard a "NBC News Roundup" segment!

Ron

Re: NBC Bougainville (3325 kHz.) anomaly - Ron Howard Sep 11 (Wed), 2019 14:06 UTC No.4087
Sept 11 - A second day with a greatly extended NBC Bougainville broadcast on 3325 kHz., so perhaps
a new schedule? Unlike yesterday's reception free from Voice of Indonesia QRM, today with significant
VOI audio, making a mess of this frequency; both stations mostly unusable; checking 1217-1302 UTC;
again with "NBC News Roundup" at 1302.

This change is not totally unexpected. It will be recalled that this November will see the important
referendum vote to be taken to determine the possible independence of Bougainville. We can expect
this station to be a key means of disseminating information about the election. SW is especially alive
at election time!

BOUGAINVILLE[non-log]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1037+, Sept 22. Off the air; not
heard recently; by 1044, VOI was on the air.  

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via RRI Palangkaraya, 1314-1318, Sept 22.
English segment (1300-1400); program "Today In History" (this date 1980, Iraq invaded
Iran [start of Iran–Iraq War], etc.); a rare day with audio level semi-readable, instead of
the usual carrier (no audio).    

KOREA NORTH[non]. 5980 // 6070, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, 1328, Sept 22. N. Korea with
heavy jamming of 5980, whereas 6070 had good reception, with no jamming at all; in
Japanese.
   
KOREA SOUTH. 9100, Echo of Hope - VOH, 1200-1210, Sept 22. Just after their English
language lesson ended at 1200, there is a ten minute program called "Radio Yeogsa Geugjang"
(Radio History Theater), produced by "EBS" (Korea); it's a historical drama presentation, going
back to the time of the Goryeo/Koryo Dynasty (918-1392). When I first heard this program ID
for the first time, thought that it was a new station ID, but not so. Thanks to the ongoing support
from Amano-san (Japan), who provided me with the correct info. // 3985 // 4885 // 5995 // 6250
// 6350. Web site http://bit.ly/2kX0Ge5 (google translation) - click on "Listen again" to see list of
their programs. My audio of good reception at http://bit.ly/2kWzQTl .

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1126+, Sept 22. Another day with live sports coverage (TV
audio feed) of the football/soccer match between Myanmar (under 16) and Chinese Taipei (U16);
started with choral anthem and brief intro before the start of the game; constant sound of the crowd
in the background; again held at Thuwanna Stadium (Yangon); preempted regular programs.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1224*, Sept 22. Running a little
late today. This was the only PNG station on the air (no NBC Bougainville).

THAILAND. 5875, Radio Thailand, 1144, Sept 22. Interesting to hear the significant drop in signal
with change made to the antenna beam direction. My unedited audio of strong to not so strong
reception at http://bit.ly/2mrQwCx .

Once In My Life," The Beatles - "Paperback Writer," etc.); some commercial announcements
(not quite readable); some of the usual USB Spanish chatter QRM; cut off close to 1246*. A
good Aussie day!  

SIKKIM. 4835, AIR Gangtok (presumed), 1342-1417, Sept 24. A day with good audio (above
threshold level); not the often heard transmitter hum; QRN (static); announcers and subcontinent
music/singing. Best reception today, as is always the case, was around my local sunrise (1356 UT).

Re: Asia - Pacific DX log(22) - Ron Howard Sep 28 (Sat), 2019 03:19 UTC No.4104
AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, randomly from 1052 to 1246:25*, Sept 25. Respectable
reception for such a low powered station; variety of pop songs (a Burt Bacharach song,
"This Guy's in Love with You," The Temptations - "My Girl," Irene Cara - "Flashdance
What A Feeling," Creedence Clearwater Revival - "Down On The Corner," etc.); 1100,
news, weather and sea conditions (bits and pieces readable); commercial announcements;
heavy QRN (static). My audio of Bacharach song, weather and faint SA, at http://bit.ly/2lu5RCB  
          
BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville (Maus Blong Sankamap - Voice of the Sunrise),
1015-1050, Sept 25. Almost all the programs dealing with the upcoming referendum; back
on the air after being briefly silent for a few days.

MYANMAR. RE: WOR 2001 - Myanmar Radio - Glenn wondered if 5985 & 9730, where via
the same transmitter? Once I had assumed they were, as their sign off and sign on times
seemed to indicate that, but not so. A good number of times now I have noted them BOTH
on the air at the same time (overlapping), so definitely two separate transmitters.    

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 3260, NBC Madang (Maus Blong Garamut), 1211*, Sept 25; usual
format.

7325, Wantok Radio Light (presumed), 1257-1258, Sept 27. Thanks to Hiroyuki Komatsubara
(Japan) for his alert; during CRI's brief break, heard a definite weak carrier here, but unable to
make out any audio. Assume low power?

SOLOMON ISLANDS. 9545, SIBC, 0449 till cut off at 0459*, Sept 26. Finally strong enough to
be able to ID one of their songs, with distinctive "Shallow," by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper; cut
off time is via timer (always the same time) (Ron Howard, Asilomar State Beach, CA)

U S A. 7570, WRMI, 1258, Sept 25. Good signal; Supreme Master TV audio; about the relief
efforts for the Bangladesh fire ("may Allah bless you"); reception killed by *1300, of very strong
VOA (Thailand). 

VIETNAM. 7155.0, VOV, on Sept 27, heard an interesting situation here at 1304. Clearly TWO
stations mixing together; one stronger signal in Chinese (// 7220) and a much weaker underneath
(// 7285); first time I have heard them both together. Thanks very much to Glenn, who last year
pointed out: "7285 at 1300-1330 in French, 7220 at same time in Chinese: 7285 leapfrog over
7220 another 65 kHz below lands on 7155."

UNIDENTIFIED. 4990-USB, 0410, Sept 26. American fishermen chatting; sounded like conversation
between fishing boats; first time I have ever heard anything like this here. Probably just off the coast
of Calif., as Monterey Bay and other coastal areas have fishing fleets.

Oct 1 ("National Day"), will mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Expect there will be major SW coverage of the special events planned throughout the day.  Website - http://www.70prc.cn/english/index.htm . 

There will be a 90-minute grand evening gala and fireworks show, held at Tiananmen Square. Scheduled to start at 1200 UTC and certainly expect some SW coverage. Hard to say just which Chinese SW stations will be involved with this special event, but probably worthwhile to check all the regional stations, as well as CNR1, CNR2, etc.

Re: N. Korea jamming of Shiokaze - Ron Howard Oct 02 (Wed), 2019 14:50 UTC No.4123
KOREA NORTH. Oct 2, with the jamming of Shiokaze:

5980, fast, pulsating noise jamming long before Shiokaze started at *1300.

6070, jamming anomaly; from *1300 to 1306*, with the programming of KCBS Pyongyang
(// 3320 // 6400); then leaving Shiokaze in the clear for about a minute; *1307, start of a slower,
pulsating noise jamming (seemed slower rate than 5980).

My audio, with one minute of faster jamming (5980) and one of the slower jamming (6070),
at http://bit.ly/2pi1hZv .

BTW - Myanmar Radio (5985), on Oct 2 (Wednesday), had mostly unusable reception (1246-1256)
of the usually well heard "Learning English with BBC, Burmese." This due to strong jamming of pre-
Shiokaze on 5980 and also the fairly strong adjacent QRM from the new frequency for Echo of Hope -
VOH on 5990.

BOUGAINVILLE/PNG [both non-logs]. 3325, NBC Bougainville, 1039+, Oct 4. Clearly off the air today. A very unusual day, as NBC Madang (3260) was also silent, so no NBC stations at all.

Due to this rather rare double silence, went online to find out what was happening. Found the following probable explanation for their absence:

"PNG Power will be conducting major load shedding and disconnection exercises throughout the country this week."

The Oct 2 info is at http://bit.ly/2InAl16  and specifically mentions "Buka" (Bougainville), as being affected, plus "conducting major disconnection exercise in our cities and towns throughout the country as of this week."

CHINA. 7270, PBS Nei Menggu, as well as very noticeable spurs on 7266 // 7262 // 7258, at 1212, on Oct 9. Indigenous chanting/singing.  

KOREAN NORTH[non], 6045, National Unity Radio, via Dushanbe (Tajikistan), on Oct 9. At 1150, start of the N.

Just back from a cruise from San Francisco, up to Oregon/Washington/Canada. Now back at the dials again!

CHINA. 6125, CNR1, from 1156+, on Oct 27. Non-stop live coverage of the closing ceremony
of the 7th Military World Games (not war games, but sports games, hi!), held in Wuhan (Hubei
Province); mostly in Chinese, but with some English and French; Col. Dorah Mamby Koita,
Secretary General of the International Military Sports Council, presented the Fair Play Award to
Col. Bertrand Gebuhrer, chief of the French delegation. Youtube, with English coverage, at
http://bit.ly/2MQw4WD .

CHINA/TIBET. 6200, Xizang PBS via Lhasa, at 1224, on Oct 27. Heard Tibet in the clear; then
the usual double sign on of Voice of Jinling at *1231* and back at *1232; VOJ much stronger
reception than Tibet.

KOREA NORTH[non]. 6085, Shiokaze/Sea Breeze, at 1310, Oct 27. Change of frequency and in
the clear with no jamming; was unable to locate //, but thanks to Hiroshi, who did find it, as well as
other times and frequencies today:

1300-1400   6085 // 7310
1405-1435   7260 // 7325
1600-1700   6095 // 7325  

KOREA SOUTH. Voice of the People, from 1107+, on Oct 27; 3910 (jammed) // 3480 (fair - no jamming)
// 3925 (jammed) // 4450 (jammed) // 6515 (jammed) // 6600 (jammed).

Echo of Hope - VOH, from 1104+, on Oct 27; 3985 (jammed) // 4880 (fair - no jamming) // 5995 (jammed)
// 6245 (jammed) // 6350 (jammed) // 9095 (fair - no jamming).

6045, Voice of Freedom, from 1140+, on Oct 27. After being on ex 5920 for a long time, they finally moved
back to a former frequency; the good news is that National Unity Radio has moved off this frequency (now
7590?), but the bad news is that today at *1144, the N. Korea jamming that would have been against NUR
started up, so will take N. Korea awhile to move to the new NUR frequency, but unfortunately the 5920
jamming will eventually move up to 6045. NUR sudden change probably due to the VOF shift in frequency.

7295, Furusato no Kaze ("Wind of Hometown"), 1331, Oct 27. Again on this former frequency; in Japanese.

KOREA SOUTH. 6045, Voice of Freedom, 1300-1402*, Oct 28.

1300 - start of a program -  http://bit.ly/31YCd7P

1330 - start of a program -  http://bit.ly/36dLEU4

1350 - start of a drama program - http://bit.ly/2JuIj9i

1400-1402* - closing announcement; the usual VOF singing jingle in Korean ("jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong. jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong... jayu-e soli bangsong," translated - "Voice of truth, voice of hope, Voice of Freedom Broadcasting. Voice of truth, voice of hope, Voice of Freedom Broadcasting... Voice of Freedom"); ending audio with instrumental version of "aleumdaun nala" (Beautiful Country); audio ends, but carrier continues on. Thanks again go to Amano (Japan) for his original translations.

Earlier (1100-1200), VOF totally blocked by very strong KNLS (Alaska) on frequency. 

National Unity Radio remains silent on this frequency, but where did they move to? Not 7590, per Aoki. Thanks to Aoki, who today listed NUR on 7235, for 1200-1258.

BHUTAN. 6035, BBS, on Oct 30, with pop music segment (1014-1020); then announcers 
and interviews in English (unreadable) till cut off at 1048*; still with earlier than normal
closing down time.

BOUGAINVILLE. 3325, NBC Bougainville, on Oct 30, with impassioned political speeches
("... we people of Bougainville ...") from 1120 to 1140; then 1140-1201, with pop music; 1201-
1206, news in English (unreadable); after cut off at 1207*, only the carrier from Voice of
Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, was heard with no audio at all today, even when checked later.

KOREA NORTH. Seems they have reevaluated and updated their jamming situation via SW.
They are now actively responding to some of the Echo of Hope - VOH and Voice of the People
frequency changes that have been observed recently since Oct 1.

For me, the biggest find today (Oct 30) was that after years of non-stop daily N. Korea jamming
on 6135, found that frequency today was completely free of the usual jamming noise. Hope it is
not a one day only anomaly! Many years ago Voice of Freedom was on frequency, but 6135 has
not had a station to be jammed for a long time.

Today noted CRI on 6135, in English, from 1404 to past 1500 (scheduled 1400-1557). Had hoped
to check for R. Madagasikara on this frequency, but block by China when reception might have
been possible. Also the absence of 6135 noise jamming is of some help for reception of Lao
National Radio (6130), which was heard today about 1345. BTW - KBS, on 6015, was jammed
as usual with noise, so 6135 seemed to be an independent absence.  
 
KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, 1211, Oct 30. S. Korean musical group, Girls Generation
(SNSD) with "Into The New World"; 3980 (jammed & ham QRM) // 4885 (good - not jammed)
// 5990 (jammed) // 6250 (jammed) // 6347 (jammed) // 9100 (good - not jammed).  

6045, Voice of Freedom, 1000, Oct 30. News program "Bodo gwangjang" ("News plaza"); no
jamming or QRM; my audio at http://bit.ly/332JWmz .  

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1249-1259, Oct 30 (Wednesday). The usual two consecutive
5 minute shows of "Learning English with BBC, Burmese"; first show about names ("His name is ...,
Her name is ..., My name is ..."); second show with "I come from England"; not very readable; the
two shows will be repeated on Friday.

> 6045kHz JAMMING, vs Voice of Freedom (SOUTH KOREA)

Nov 1 - Yes, extremely strong jamming noted from 1015+, on 6045; totally blocking VOF;
while ex 5920 is now a clear frequency. So yesterday (Oct 31) was the last day that VOF
was in the clear with a good signal. Yesterday from 1507+, with very enjoyable music
program. My audio (one minute of announcer and then music) at http://bit.ly/2qaavHQ .

Also Nov 1:

3945, Echo of Unification (presumed), 1254-1319, in Korean with announcer and music;
in the clear during this time period, but weak. Schedule is 1200-1400, but Japan ("RN2,
Radio Nikkei"), the last time I recently checked, had a sign off at 1231*, which should
overpower EOU for a half hour.  

7295, Furusato no Kaze ("Wind of Hometown"), 1330, into Japanese; very nice signal. My
audio at http://bit.ly/34o5b2p .

Re: Sarawak FM reactivated on 9835 kHz. - Ron Howard Nov 11 (Mon), 2019 15:12 UTC No.4192
MALAYSIA[non-Sarawak]. 9835, Sarawak FM (presumed), via Kajang (on the west coast of the 
Malaysia peninsular), 1148-1317, Nov 11. Had been off the air all this year, so very happy to find
them reactivated; 1148-1233, with EZL pop songs (no news at ToH); 1233-1259, reciting from the
Qur'an; 1300-1310, news in vernacular; tentative SAs for "Sarawak FM" and "R T M"; reception
varied from very poor to almost fair, depending on the amount of adjacent QRM. My audio of four
minutes of the news and one of Qur'an, at http://bit.ly/33FOY8E . BTW - Wai FM (11665 kHz.) was

CHINA. 6060, PBS-2 Sichuan, at 1200, Nov 15. Clear multi-language IDs - "Sìchuān mínzú guǎngbò, Sichuan Ethnic Radio"; almost fair, playing indigenous songs; heard daily with very respectable signal.

KOREA NORTH. 6250, Echo of Unification, 1329, Nov 15. Fair reception, in the clear due to fact that Echo of Hope - VOH was up on 6255, along with N. Korean jamming of VOH; that changed when VOH moved down to 6250, to mix with EOU; jamming did not move off 6255 to follow VOH, although later the jamming was completely gone (not on 6250 nor 6255). A strange day!     
 
KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, random checking 1126 to 1335, Nov 15. Difficult to keep up with the fast moving changes today.

Summary of some of the items noted: 9105, completely off the air today; 4890, several times noted off-on-off-on again; VOH was jumping back and forth from 6250 (mixing with Echo of Unification) to 6255. Even the N. Korean jamming had anomalies: 1334, the jamming had gone off on 6000 (still QRM from another station), 6255 and 6355 (now very good reception without the jamming), whereas earlier all three frequencies where jammed.

So South Korea is actively trying to out run the jamming with these quick changes and N. Korea jamming is often not far behind. Seems no set frequency schedule any more?
