KBS reported that V15 was received on 23,June, 2016 and 14,July, 2016.
I was surprised that v15 was reactivated.

I read that KBS TV aired a recording of the transmission. Is there a way to retrieve that broadcast?

What I see on the tv clip is only a short part of the message. According to the various sources the message was 14 mins long.

Unfortunately full recording of V15 at that time is not available.
I monitor R.PyeongYang now.
If I catch V15, I will post v15 recording.

Thanks. Much appreciated !

I never heard a V15 transmission myself, nor could I find a complete recording. Only snippets. I recently found this but I am not sure if it really is an old V15 transmission.

KBS refers to them as "transmitted five-digit numbers"
