We are delighted to announce that our shortwave transmission from Kimje, South Korea will be normalized after a three week test transmission starting at 0400 UTC on July 8th, 2019. We thank you for your patience during the past year.
Our English programming on 9785 kHz that was initially moved to 1800-2100 UTC due to a transmitter problem will be back on 1400-1700 UTC at a stronger output of 250 kW.
Listeners who tune into our programs on 11810 kHz and 15575 kHz can also expect to enjoy better reception since the current 100 kW transmitter will be replaced by a 250 kW transmitter.
Please be sure to tune into KBS World Radio during the test transmission period and send us your reception reports. Your feedback will help us find ways to improve your listening experience.
