NHK World Japan – 7355 kHz

My third station in the log on Sunday evening (17th October 2021) was NHK World Japan on 7355 kHz in the 41m band.

NHK World-Japan (also known simply as NHK World) is the international arm of the Japanese state-controlled public broadcaster.

NHK began shortwave broadcasting on an experimental basis in the 1930s, and began regular English- and Japanese-language shortwave broadcasts in 1935 under the name Radio Japan.

Here is a promotional video from NHK World.

Overall reception of NHK was good.  The signal strength was good and there was slight fading of the signal.  However there was interference from 7345 in the Chinese language.  I experienced some static crashes on the band.

Below is a video of my reception of NHK World Japan.
