"Radio Free Korea" - VOH - Echo of Hope on 4885 kHz.
« on: June 29, 2017, 1522 UTC »
KOREA SOUTH. 4885, "Radio Free Korea" - VOH - Echo of Hope,
1141-1241 UTC, June 29. At both 1141 & 1241 heard what for me was a
new ID in English - "Radio Free Korea." Per informative info from
Amano-san (Saitama, Japan), the same program is repeated
here on 4885 every hour; program is "Radio Broadcasting Guide,"
provided for by "Foreign Family Alliance"; program is different from
the other Echo of Hope VOH frequencies, hence 4885 is NOT // to
3985, 5995, 6250, 6350 nor 9100.

At 1203 gong/bell rung slowly three times, followed by full ID in Korean.
Thanks very much to Amano-san, here is the ID and his translation,
posted to Hiroyuki Komatsubara's website, "Now On The Radio"
