Voice of Korea: June 13, 2018


Live, off-air recording of the Voice of Korea broadcast in English on 13 June 2018, beginning at 18:00 UTC on 15245 kHz. The broadcast was transmitted from Kujang, Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), with a transmitter power of 200 kW. The broadcast had an antenna beam direction of 325° and was directed to western Europe.   

The news program in the first part of the broadcast has an extensive report on the historic summit meeting in Singapore between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump on 12 June 2018.

The broadcast was received by the Web-interface wideband software-defined radio at the University of Twente in Enschede, The Netherlands, with a "Mini-Whip" antenna in synchronous AM mode with 5.08 kHz total bandwidth RF filtering. Reception of the broadcast was fairly good with some fading and was accompanied by the faint sound of jamming, likely originating from the same transmitter plant that is used to jam broadcasts from the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and other countries, and is likely due to a technical fault.
