12015 kHz Voice Of Korea 18 APR 2022 1629 hrs UTC

Good signal.  Sometimes they have weak signal. Other times they are not on air when they should be, my guess is power related as they seem to still have problems with their electricity supply. 13760 kHz & 15245 kHz have also had good signal in the past couple of weeks, but can vary one day to the next.
Indoor setup: Elad FDM-S2 & MLA-30 antenna. One stock & another modified.

I was listening to 13760 kHz today which is the first of two frequencies for Europe & at 1350 hrs UTC it suddenly went off air in the middle of a song. I checked the 2nd  frequency for Europe, 15245 kHz, & it was still on air. Likely they are still having power related issues. Not the first time I heard VOK fall off the air.
13760 did come back on air a while after, although other times it stays off for the rest of the day.
