DPRK-flagWith North Korea back in the news, I thought it would be a great time to check in with the Voice of Korea. Their English language broadcast from Pyongyang can be heard daily from much of the western USA. The frequencies to monitor are 9335 and 11710 kHz during the morning hours, and again in the late evening on 13760 and 15180 kHz.

15180 kHz – Response to US bombers over South Korea — DPRK strategic rocket forces ready to strike US targets and general threats of nuclear war.

9335 kHz – Full broadcast from March 26, 2013 at 1500 UTC.

9335 kHz – Full broadcast from March 29, 2013 at 1500 UTC.

9335 kHz – Full broadcast from March 30, 2013 at 1500 UTC.

Kim Jong-ilOne 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 13650.

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.
