DZRP – Radyo Pilipinas Worldwide, also known as Voice of the Philippines is the overseas service of the Philippine Broadcasting Service. The station broadcasts on various shortwave frequencies in the Filippino and English languages.

During the martial law era in the Philippines, the National Media Production Center operated the Voice of the Philippines on AM and shortwave. Following the 1986 revolution, those broadcasts were abolished. The Voice of the Philippines was rebanded as Radyo Pagasa until 1987 when it became Radyo Pilipinas.

Radyo Pilipinas was coming through to my location quite well.

Radio NZ was coming through very nicely with an excellent signal and no interference from adjacent stations. There was slight noise on the band (static crashes) and slight fading of the signal.
