Regarding Glenn Hauser's log in WOR iog - "KOREA SOUTH [and non]. 6000, Dec 24 at 0741, checking RHC frequenciesbut this one
normally off by a sesquihour earlier, yet something weak is here and also with jamming noise. Must be Echo of Hope, instead of
alternate 5995. No report from Ron this week about its current jumparounds, but Dec 24 Aoki has it on 6000 from 0500 but no
indication of jamming (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)"

Glenn - You were correct! From Dec 20 (Mon.) to 26 (Sun.), Echo of Hope - VOH frequencies were - 3990 // 4885 // 6000 // 6250 //
6355 // 9100 kHz.

VOH frequencies heard on Dec 27 (Mon.) -  3985 // 4880 // 5995 // 6245 // 6350 // 9095 kHz., all were fair-good with no N. Korea
jamming yet; at 1140 UT, with EBS TV audio feed for the English language lesson "Wang cho bo yeong-eo," which is always aired
only on weekdays; later at 1239, with the EBS news headlines and news stories in English and Korean. These frequencies should be
good through Jan 2 (Sun.) 

Voice of the People frequencies on Dec 27 (Mon.) - 3910 // 3930 // 3480 (heard daily now after the reactivation on Dec 6) // 4450 //
6520 // 6600 kHz., at 1145 UT.

Voice of Freedom, on 5920, at 1200 UT, on Dec 25; single tone; "Jayu-e solibangsong-eseo bam 9 (ahob) sileul allyeodeulibnida." (In
 English - Voice of Freedom has announced 9pm); singing station jingle - "jinsil-e soli, huimang-e soli, jayu-e soli bangsong!" (Voice of
Truth, Voice of Hope, Voice of Freedom broadcast); "Bodo gwangjang" (News Plaza); fair-good reception with no N. Korea jamming. If
they are smart, they will stay on this frequency, as their alternate frequency of 6045 is again being heard with N. Korea super jamming.
KBS Hanminjok Bangsong 1, on 6015, continues to be free of the usual strong white noise jamming from NK, but instead has light jamming
heard underneath, at 1150 UT.

CDNK North Korean Democratization Committee, on 6085, with *1400, on Dec 23. Heard just after the first day closing of Shiokaze at 1400*,
on their alternate frequency of 6085 (// 7250); CDNK with good reception, but by Dec 25, N. Korean jamming had found Shiokaze and is now
causing QRM for CDNK 1400+. 

KOREA NORTH - On Dec 27, at 1205 UT: 

Echo of Unification, 3945 // 5905, both fair.

Also N. Korea super jamming returned to 6045 kHz. on Dec 25 and still here Dec 27. We can only hope Voice of Freedom does not again use this
alternate frequency while the super jamming is active.
