KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. Thanks very much to Amano (Japan) for his fantastic monitoring of VOF
and finding their new format with a complete list of VOF programs. Taking my directions from him, on Jan 7, I heard
QRM from N. Korea jamming and after the "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng" (Let's go music together) program,
there was the new format with VOF broadcasting their 2023 program guide.

0855-0900 UT: my seven minute audio is at bit.ly/3CtwZpm :

VOF program guide opening.
 "Haengboghan Daehanmingug" (Happy Republic of Korea).
 “Salang-i neomchineun ulijib“ (My home full of love).

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.

Now listening beachside in Pacific Grove, Calif., due to a portion of the oceanside road thru Asilomar State Beach, where
I normally listened, is now closed due to the flooding/damage done by the recent storms.
