Voice of Korea
English Service

(via Arnulf Piontek)

The confusingly named Voice of Korea, which will be forever Radio Pyongyang in the minds of those of us of a certain age, is often hard to hear in Michigan, but with patience and some luck, both the 0400 and early morning (ET) transmissions have been known to make it with acceptable levels but don't expect arm-chair copy, and don't expect it every day -- both because of propagation vagaries and because they occasionally don't transmit (because of a lack of electricity, or equipment issues, or the censors haven't gotten around to approving the days broadcasts take you pick for reason!).

With all that is in the news from this area of the globe it can be fun to hear it 'direct from the horse's mouth' just don't expect radio with western production values! (And don't expect a web page or email either!)
