Echo of Unification, NORTH KOREA – 3945 kHz

Next in my log was a very interesting station, Echo of Unification in NORTH KOREA on 3945 kHz on the 75 m shortwave band. The broadcast was in the Korean language.

The “Echo of Unification” is North Korea’s anti-Seoul propaganda radio outlet targeting listeners in South Korea.. The station transmits on the medium wave (AM broadcast) band, shortwave and FM frequencies. The signal is heavily jammed by the South Korean government.

I was receiving Echo of Unification well. The signal strength was good, with only slight interference from nearby stations and only slight fading of the signal.

Below is a video showing my reception of Echo of Unification. It shows reception on the Tecsun S-2000 and the Yaesu FTdx101MP.
