Korea - VOH and VOP anomalies
« on: October 18, 2021, 1233 UTC »
KOREA SOUTH. :

Echo of Hope - VOH, on Sat., Oct 16, noted the normal weekend only reading of a Harry Potter story, on 3985 // 5995 // 6350, at 0723 UT.

Observed on Monday, Oct 18

VOH, on new frequencies of 3990 // 6000 // 6355; checking for the usual 0723-0752, EBS TV audio feed for the English language lesson
("Wang cho bo yeong-eo" - Beginner's English), which is always aired on weekdays, but today surprised to find instead only non-stop EZL
pop songs (Whitney Houston - "I Will Always Love You," Carpenters - "Close To You," Celine Dion - "My Heart Will Go On,"  Bee Gees -
"How Deep Is Your Love," etc.). This is the first time I have heard this format. Perhaps the TV audio feed was not available today, so they
played filler music? Later at 0846, I heard the usual EBS news headlines in English.

Echo of Hope - VOH: this week's frequencies: 3990 // 4890 (no change!) // 6000 (this week no longer QRMing Mali) // 6250 // 6355 // 9100, at 0903 UT.

Voice of the People: only three frequencies heard at 0910 UT, not the usual six: 3910 // 4450 // 6520; no trace of 3480 (recently has been off the air!),
3930, nor 6600.

Echo of Hope - VOH (희망의메아리): On 9100 kHz., from 0440 to 0453 UT, on Oct 19. The EBS's (Educational Broadcasting System) produced
English "Morning Headlines" program, which is also a language lesson; with a new and different format today; in the past was always Sue Choi in
English, followed by a lot of explanations in Korean regarding the news items; today still with Sue, but with a young man chatting in English about
the news items and explaining things in English (not in Korean); today's news headlines were originally broadcast via EBS FM on Oct 5; a transcript
of today's program is at http://bit.ly/3pjISsi
