Korea: 6250 kHz. - VOH vs VOP
« on: February 21, 2022, 1318 UTC »

KOREA SOUTH. 6250, Echo of Hope - VOH and Voice of the People mixing together, 0941+ UT, Feb 21 (Monday).
Seems the S. Korean National Intelligence Service got their signals mixed up today (operates both VOH & VOP);
VOH with program of pop songs in English (Michael Jackson - "Billie Jean," etc.), while VOP had announcers (0957,
"Bodo" [news]); VOP was possibly testing here, as there were extended periods being off the air and on the air.
Brief audio (VOP with announcer and VOH with Michael Jackson song) - https://app.box.com/s/z2m7bkdsuc0h6c7fgiur401rsds2vhx7 .

VOH, observed Feb 21 (Monday) with new frequencies good through Feb 27: heard 3990 // 4885 // 6000 // 6250
(VOP QRM) // 6355 // 9100, from 0915+ UT.

VOP,  observed Feb 21 (Monday) with new developments: heard 3910 [3930 off the air] // 3480 // 4450 [6520 off the air]
// on new 6250 (VOH QRM) // 6600, from 0920+ UT. Unable to locate the VOP 6th frequency today!

Do you have to tune to 6250 is LSB? Here in CO, the Slot Machine dominates that frequency. I've never really gotten decent rx of VOH there.
