Korea - May 3-4
« on: May 04, 2021, 1910 UTC »
KOREA SOUTH. 5920, Voice of Freedom. Finally moved away from ex: 6045 and the super jamming
there from N. Korea; first day back to their alternate frequency and decent reception; thanks to a timely tip
from Amano, who today reported:

"Below is breaking news.

KOREA SOUTH. back on alternate frequency 5920 (ex: 6045),  *0753-, May 4 (Tuesday).
The existence of the unmodulated signal on 5920 kHz was already confirmed at 0700 UT.
*0752-, confirmed the start of VOF on 5920 kHz.
-0800-, I confirmed the start of "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng (Let's go music together)" at this
frequency with the start of "There's A Kind Of Hush" sung by the Carpenters.
NK Super Jamming on 6045 kHz still heard powerful.
5925 kHz is still no jamming.

Saitama at home, Japan
ICF-SW7600GR, antenna: AN-12"

Today (May 4), at 1400 UT, I heard the same program he heard at 0800 ("Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng"
[Let's go music together]). My 8 minute audio is posted at http://bit.ly/3vHeEzr . After 1430+, strong QRM from
Vatican Radio, via Philippines, in Hindi.

Observed frequencies on May 3 (Monday) for this week:

Voice of the People: 3480 // 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600, at 1015 UT; earlier the reception was too poor to confirm.

Echo of Hope - VOH: 3980 // 4885 (QRM Brazil) // 5990 // 6250 // 6348 // 9100, at 0850 UT.  

National Unity Radio, 9475, from 1447 to 1448 UT, on May 4. Brief Chinese language lesson; started and
ended with Joyce Chu singing "Hao xiang ni - I Miss You“; mostly in Korean; a few words in Chinese and a
sentence using the words. Thanks very much to Glenn Hauser for noticing this repeated language lesson
given 2 hours later than I had been hearing the same program.

Thanks very much to Amano, for his comments about my VOF (5920 kHz.) audio today. Ron

"Ron-san - Thank you for checking VOF.
I confirmed that the contents of the program I listened to at 0800 UT (// 1400 UT) match.
Today's "Hamkke tteonaneun eum-ag-yeohaeng (Let's go music together)" was mainly broadcast on subway-themed songs.
