Voice of Korea English B10 schedule

Voice of Korea, the DPRK’s international shortwave broadcasting service, is on the air everyday in several languages. The English language broadcasts appear to be refreshed during the day (local time) with each programming cycle beginning with the evening broadcast and then getting repeated overnight.

The news output is similar to the English-language stories from KCNA, but there is minor editing. It’s generally a day behind the news being put out on the domestic service in Korean.

Each program is about 55 minutes long.

The English-language broadcast schedule for winter 2010 (period B10) is:

0100 GMT (10am local) to North East Asia on 7200kHz, 9345kHz and 9730kHz
0100 GMT (10am local) to Central and South America on 11735kHz, 13760kHz and 15180kHz

  1. I am short wave radio listener worldwide. I want to know about Voice of Korea south asian service.

  2. There don’t appear to be any broadcasts specifically announced for South Asia.

    Try tuning into some of the other broadcasts to see what you can hear.

    The Southeast Asia and Middle East transmissions might be easiest for you to receive.

  3. What station is playing over the top of Voice of Korea at 6pm on the Europe broadcast? It gets in the way and I can only receive it on the 9pm broadcast when that frequency isn’t being used at the same time.

  4. Andrew,

    There’s nothing listed in the frequency databases at the same time on the same frequencies. I’m not sure what is blocking the signal, but it should be a fairly clear channel.

    There should be an ID at the top of the hour. What language is the program?

    Sorry I can’t be of more help.

    Martyn

  5. I found the answer to this, supposedly Radio Thailand operates on 7570khz:

  6. I cannot hear the Voice of Korea European transmissions on any frequency at any time for the past month or so. Have their frequencies changed recently? What times and frequencies are their programmes for Europe in English?
    Do they have any plans to stream their oversea’s service in English?

  7. I am suddenly not receiving voice of korea on 7570 at 1500 GMT. why?
