Tuned through the utility bands and the horrendous QRM from the neighbor's two plasma TVs, and heard what sounded like Korean speech by men on 10225 and 10234 in USB. 

The QSO on 10234 was stronger. 

I've never heard anything but RTTY, data, or static in this part of the band before.  The last few times I've heard what sounded like Asian fishermen I think it was in the 8 Mhz band.

At times like this I wish I had a 1000 watt linear and rotatable 4 element beam antenna for my CB.  I could aim it right at my neighbor's main TV room and entertain them.  They have a monstrous flatscreen that puts out hash and carriers all over the HF spectrum, the loudest ones being 7000 khz and above, and some monstrous hash in the 21 meter SWBC band.

I don't suppose you know if it was North or South Korea, do you?

I have no idea.  

I do know that the Supreme Commander, Comrade Kim Jong Un just recently dedicated a fleet of North Korean fishing boats, whose task is to catch a lot of fish to feed the North Korean army.  

The Supreme Commander, Comrade Kim Jong Un also advised the fishermen concerning the best way to catch a lot of fish.  This was one of the top news stories on the Voice Of Korea a few weeks ago.

So, whether these Korean voices were from this new fleet or not, I don't know....  ;D
