New Voice of Korea English schedule
North Korea’s external shortwave radio broadcaster, Voice of Korea, joins many of the world’s international broadcasters in switching to a summer frequency schedule on Sunday.
Shortwave broadcasts change frequencies numerous times during the day to take advantage of atmospheric conditions that help their broadcasts can reach the intended targets. For this reason, it’s important to know when and where a station will appear.
Based on on-air announcements, this is the new schedule for English-language broadcasts that goes into effect on Sunday and will last for roughly the next six months.
All times are in UTC (GMT) and all frequencies in kilohertz.
0400-0500 to North East Asia on 7220, 9445 and 9730
0400-0500 to Central and South America on 11735, 13760 and 15180
0500-0600 to South East Asia on 13650 and 15105
0600-0700 to North East Asia on 7220, 9445 and 9730
1000-1100 to South East Asia on 11735 and 13650
1000-1100 to Central and South America on 11710 and 15180
1300-1400 to Europe on 13750 and 15245
1300-1400 to North America on 9435 and 11710
1500-1600 to Europe on 13750 and 15245
1500-1600 to North America on 9435 and 11710
1600-1700 to Middle East and North Africa on 9890 and 11645
1800-1900 to Europe on 13750 and 15245
1900-2000 to Middle East and North Africa on 9875 and 11645
1900-2000 to Southern Africa on 7210 and 11910
2100-2200 to Europe on 13750 and 15245
Notes: Voice of Korea continues to suffer from problems that sometimes mean scheduled broadcasts don’t appear or transmissions stop mid-sentence. The schedule above is that announced for the English-language service.
A full schedule, including details of broadcasts in French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Russian, is expected in the coming days.
Most Voice of Korea items can be heard on the station’s website, although it does not carry a live stream or complete recording of each day’s program.
