Voice stations

South Korean voice stations

Following the Korean report in N&O 16, I received a massive schedule of the South Korean stations from Toru Yamashita and Igor Buhtiyarov. Thanks a million guys!

Callsigns

The South Korean agents/recipients have a numerical or geographical id, e.g. "Moran-bong", No.3825, No.3250, No.5335 and so on.

Geographical id's noted so far are:

Moran-bong, Shingo-san, Cheongcheon-gang, Tuman-gang

"Bong" means hill or mountain, "san" means mountain, and "gang" means river. Mt. Moran-bong is located in Pyongyang; Mt. Shingo-san (unknown); Cheongcheon-gang is a Korean river; as is Tuman-gang.

Czech station

The Czech weekend station was heard on 11 Sept at 1645 UTC on 2136 kHz. No reports for 1122 kHz.

Atention listeners in and around the Czech Republic, can you please try to figure out the exact schedules? I have a poor recording of the station and would appreciate a better copy. Anyone please?
