One of the great things about HF/shortwave monitoring is the fact we can listen to various stations from around the world. While many broadcasters have moved on to Internet streaming, there are still interesting stations to be heard. One of them is the Voice of Korea which broadcasts from Pyongyang, North Korea. The Voice of Korea gives outsiders a good opportunity to experience genuine broadcasts directly from the DPRK. With the passing of Kim Jong-il, I figured this would be an interesting time to tune in and was certainly not disappointed.
Here is a recording from the 12/21/11 VOK news segment on 13650kHz
The North Korea Tech has an excellent recording from the Voice of Korea broadcast where Kim Jong-il’s passing is announced over the air.
