Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, DanH, who writes:

I recorded and edited clips from two Voice of Korea SW broadcasts in English at different times earlier today (UTC). The radio clock in this video is fairly accurate and is set to UTC. The VOK announcer reads a list of VOK English language broadcast times and frequencies near the end of the video. Happy listening! Propagation conditions aren’t that bad.

    And it’s 13760 rather than 13650, and 7220 instead on 7620 kHz.
    Plus, in this announcement, they forgot about broadcasts to the Middle East and Africa. The 1600z broadcast is on 9890 and 11645 kHz, and 1900z one is on 9875 and 11635 kHz. Both 25m frequencies are actually doing better on Twente than 13760 & 15245.
    And to Africa, 1900z broadcast is on 7210 and 11910 kHz, both tragically weak and QRMed. According to Aoki, 7215 is occupied by CRI in Cantonese at the same time, while 11915 has Saudi Arabia’s Holy Quran service blasting in. But perhaps the reception is different in eg. South Africa?
