Shortwave Radio Recordings: Voice of Korea

SWRAA-Shortwave-Archive-iTunes-LogoLast week, we posted the following recording on the Shortwave Radio Audio Archive; our website and podcast of current and historic shortwave radio recordings.

Indeed, our podcast is absolutely free and by subscribing (via iTunes or RSS feed), you can also help preserve these recordings. Read about the archive by clicking here.

Though I post recordings on the SWLing Post, we post many more on the shortwave archive as many of our recordings are sent in by contributors (like you!).

Indeed, I owe thanks to SWRAA contributor, Frank, for this recording of the Voice of Korea‘s English language service.

Frank recorded this broadcast from his home in Europe on November 13, 2013, on 11,645 kHz, starting at 16:00 UTC. Frank used a Kenwood R-5000 receiver and a Wellbrook ALA 1530+ antenna.

    Hi – I guess there was a mix-up which no one noticed yet? This isn’t the Voice of Korea. It’s a recording of the Voice of Indonesia, starting in German, then the English program for an hour (starting at the 3 minute mark), then the French program afterwards. I wonder where and at what time and frequency it was recorded? I wish I had reception like this at my location in New York, USA.

    I just noticed now that although the link you provided for downloading the recording as a MP3 is “The Voice of Indonesia”, the embedded player is correct and does play “The Voice of Korea”.
