Korea - Voice of Freedom testing on new 6020 kHz.
« on: May 16, 2017, 1613 UTC »
KOREA SOUTH. On a new frequency of 6020, Voice of Freedom
(clandestine) (presumed). Tuned in on May 16, at 1013; clearly not
Vietnam (VOV4), which is also on this frequency; suddenly off at
1017*; VOF's usual 6135, only had the normal white noise jamming
and the other new VOF frequency that was heard yesterday on 5920,
was silent all of today.

At 1018, found VOF had switched to 6135, underneath the normal
white noise jamming; usual format of being in Korean and playing
EZL songs; still there at last check of 1240, with 5920 silent and a
weak VOV4 on 6020.

Seems therefore that they are randomly testing their two new
frequencies (5920 & 6020)
, as well as using their normal 6135.
Certainly no pattern yet established as to their testing schedule.

At 1018z on 18 May 2017 I am hearing a station on 6135 underneath a jammer. Tough to tell who it is, but it does sound Asian.
