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)
My audio of SA & NA is posted at http://bit.ly/2Yj3g1K .

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!!

Re: VOH with North Korean super jamming on 4890 kHz. - Ron Howard Nov 09 (Tue), 2021 13:06 UTC No.4983
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.

Nov 10 observations:

INDONESIA[non-log]. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya, continuing with no signal at 1120 UT. What has
happened to them?

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
1128 UT. Still being erratic!

in English and Korean.

Voice of the People, also with new developments; frequencies silent today - 3930, 3480 & 4450; while
3910 // 6520 // 6600 all active today.

Voice of Freedom (6045), at 1300 UT, with program "Haengboghan Daehanmingug" (Happy Republic of Korea); gave

ETHIOPIA. 7110, Radio Ethiopia (Home Service), 1415-1500* UT, Nov 14. Had not checked on this for a while; today 
with noise jamming; usual OM & YL announcers taking alternate phone calls; occasional HOA music/singing; respectable
signal strength via long path and very nice grey line reception (local sunrise here at 1444 UT and Addis Ababa sunset
at 1500 UT); ending with SAs, clear IS and gong rung three times; seemed about to start the news, but cut off mid-
sentence. My audio posted at http://bit.ly/3ce7J96 .

INDONESIA[non-log]. 3325, Voice of Indonesia, via Palangkaraya. Recently not heard at all through Nov 17 (1255 UT).
This and the Solomon Islands (5020) are beginning to be of concern as to what is happening?

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.

U S A. 7505, WRNO, 1345 till cut off at 1400* UT, Nov 14. Preaching in English and religious songs; some ham QRM.

Re: Korea - Voice of the People now on 9100 kHz. (ex: 3480) (ex: Echo of Hope - VOH) - Ron Howard Nov 19 (Fri), 2021 13:01 UTC No.4988

Recently Echo of Hope - VOH had not been heard on their regular alternating weekly frequencies of 9095-9100-9105.
But today (Nov 19) for the first time I was instead hearing the programming of the Voice of the People on 9100 kHz.
(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?

Very good reception here, too.
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 .

Hi Ron-san,
Thank you for following me.
ありがとうございます。

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

My audio, 00:30-00:34.

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

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

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.

SIBC has been silent. Currently they are having riots in the capital, Honiara. Australia has

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."

INDIA. 5040, AIR Jeypore, *1128 UT, Nov 30. Could just barely make out the start of the AIR IS. 
BTW - Today I couldn't find any Radio Vanuatu frequencies (not on 5040, etc.).

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
from the Travis AFB emergency announcements also on frequency.
