V24 Korean Numbers Station on 4925 kHz.
« on: March 11, 2017, 1907 UTC »
KOREA SOUTH. 4925, Korean Numbers Station V24, 1431-1442* UTC,
on March 11; starting with classical music, followed by numbers
in Korean; good signal strength. This is an infinitely better
frequency choice than when I last heard V24, on 4900, mixing
badly with the Voice of Strait (China), from 1531 to 1545* UTC,
on Feb 25.

My audio from today, with first half music and second half
with numbers, at http://goo.gl/yfWHUO .

V24's use of this frequency in this time slot is a bit sporadic.  It appears to be about every other month on the odd numbered months, they have used this cycle on other time slots and frequencies in the past.

In this case the frequency / time slot was used in October and November of 2016, January and now March of 2017.  So month 10, 11, 1, and 3.  The month 10 usage is not an odd month, it is even, but it was the first time this freq / time had been noted, so possibly October 2016 was a test month?

The 5115 kHz transmission at 1600 UTC did not seem to go this morning, and it has been a steady player for the last 5 months.  Of course it might have been transmitted and just not heard at my location, that does occasionally happen but is uncommon.

I was tuned in to that frequency at that time on the Chiba, Japan kiwiSDR, and there was nothing there.

Grundig Satellit 750, Tecsun PL-600, SDRPlay RSP2 Pro.
two homebrewed mag loops (10' and 15' circumference).
Soon to include RA0SMS mini-whip, but need mounting before that goes online.

Will check this one out Ron, I am often up at this hour (0100 local) chasing NDB's and M89 Chinese Military so would like to log V24 on 4.925MHz.  China strong at this time so should be an easy one... 8)
Mount Piddington, NSW, Australia 3,654 feet ASL (127kms west of Sydney)

Grid Square:  QF56dj.

Yaesu FT-2000D & Tecsun S-2000 to 310 feet of wire, and a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.
