Korea - July 12 (Monday)
« on: July 12, 2021, 1510 UTC »
KOREA SOUTH. Echo of Hope - VOH, observed July 12 (Monday), with frequencies for this week:

3985 // 4890 (never jammed) // 5995 // 6255 // 6350 // 9105 (never jammed), at 1050 UT, with the EBS-FM (Educational
Broadcasting System - https://www.ebs.co.kr/main ) news in English and Korean; but more than just the news, as they
explain the meaning of some of the English words, so it's really the news and a language lesson; with outdated news,
as today's program was originally broadcast over EBS-FM back on June 28 (item - UK ran a campaign called "grab a
jab" to further drive up vaccination rates, etc.). Later at 1127, heard the weekday English language lesson, whereas on
the weekend they have a reading in English of "Harry Potter and the Magician's Stone," along with an explanation in
Korean, during that same time period; VOH continues to have a four hour program loop.

Voice of the People, on July 12, again with no change of frequencies for this week; noted at 1055 UT; 3480 (never jammed)
// 3910 // 3930 // 4450 // 6520 // 6600.

Voice of Freedom, 5920, on July 12, at 1130 UT with program "Aneun geos-i him-ida" (Knowing Is Power), which ID again
at 1156; then at 1200, a single tone; VOF ID and station singing jingle; program "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza); clear of
any jamming, so good reception, whereas there was strong N. Korea jamming that ended about 1100; later the NK jamming
starts up again about 1358, in anticipation of the *1405 start of Shiokaze (5920); shortly after Shiokaze signs off (1435*), the
N. Korean ends, but at 1430, there is the strong start of Vatican Radio (5920). So for me, the best time for VOF reception is
between about 1100 to 1358 UT.
