KOREA SOUTH. On a new frequency of 5920, Voice of Freedom
(clandestine) (presumed), ex: 6135. Thanks to the timely tip posted
to WRTH Facebook page by Mauno Ritola. May 15, seemed to sign
on about 1130(?) UTC, checked this new frequency on and off after
1107; first noted at 1137; in Korean and playing easy listening pop
songs; an abbreviated transmission of about an hour; they went off
close to 1238* and not heard after that. Ex: 6135, heard only white
noise jamming there as usual.

The format certainly seemed correct for VOF; clearly not on their
normal 6135 (under the white noise). My audio http://goo.gl/uCblFP  .

Seems this may have been a test transmission.

Per Hiroshi's web site http://hiroshi.mediacat-blog.jp/e122168.html
(in Japanese), there are a few new frequencies (5920 & 6020)
registered with the HFCC. Thanks very much to Chulsu at
http://radio.chobi.net/bbsasia/?res:3018#3667 (in Japanese),
for his feedback.

Mauno Ritola, in WRTH Facebook page: " Me too! Definitely the final
schedule isn't clear yet, but when I heard 5920 kHz, 6135 kHz was off
(only white noise jammer, no carrier detectable)."

On May 19, Hiroyuki Komatsubara, in Japan, was already hearing
Voice of Freedom testing on their new 5920 frequency, at 0935 UTC.
Here in California, noted them 1100-1219* UTC, with fair to good reception;
in the clear with no North Korea jamming, which was still up on the
usual 6135 kHz., without VOF being there.

Reception in Japan today: http://goo.gl/yJfiao .
