KBS and VOA Funny Games!!
« on: December 17, 2013, 1019 UTC »
5875 / 5885   BULGARIA. KBS World Radio - Kostinbrod. So….this is interesting! KBS is running DRM on 5875 for German 1900-2000 and in // 5885 with German on AM! Respectable signal on 5885, respectable hash on 5875. BUT…. what's even more interesting is that VOA-Tinang is running Korean on 5875 (!!) under the DRM hash at 1900-2100, and can be quite clearly heard here through the hash. However, I suspect that in Europe it would be impossible to hear VOA because of the would-be strong DRM signal. From 2000, VOA is in the clear. Both KBS outlets are listed as the Bulgarian site so I'm "assuming" that's correct, although HFCC is currently listing KBS on 5885 in English, which it is NOT! Dec 16.
