KBS World Radio English Service is carrying out a major frequency and time adjustment on shortwave as we expand our programming as of September 4.
First of all, we will start a new two-and-a-half hour broadcast on 9.770Mhz at 0800h UTC toward Southeast Asia. The one-hour broadcast on 9.515Mhz toward Europe will expand to two hours, and will start at 1500h UTC. Our broadcast toward India will be on 9.785Mhz instead of the current 9.880Mhz and expand to three hours, starting at 1400h UTC.
Unfortunately, as we add more hours and programs to several frequencies, we will no longer be broadcasting on 9.690Mhz, 6.095Mhz and 7.275Mhz.
For more information on the frequency adjustment and program schedule, please visit our website at world.kbs.co.kr.
We are proud to communicate the new schedule effective from 27 March 2017.
Following the requests of many listeners, we introduce a new 30 minutes weekly broadcast in English, to Europe and the Americas; at the end of every English broadcast there will be 5 minutes of “IBC DIGITAL” in MFSK32.
