Korean Central Broadcasting Station, NORTH KOREA – 3320 kHz

Third in my log on Saturday 13th November 2021 was the Korean Central Broadcasting Station (KCBS) in NORTH KOREA, broadcasting on 3320 kHz in the Korean language.

The broadcast was originating from their Pyongyang 100 KW transmitter.

The Korean Central Broadcasting Station (KCBS) is the domestic radio service operated by the Korean Central Broadcasting Committee, a state-owned broadcaster in North Korea. KCBS was established on 14 October 1945 as Pyongyang Broadcasting Station after the Korean liberation from Japan. The station later was renamed Korea Central Broadcasting Station in February 1948.

The overall reception of KCBS was good. The signal strength was good and there was no interference on the frequency or from adjacent stations. However, there were moderate static crashes due to storms out in the Tasman Sea.


Below is a short video of my reception of PBS on 3320 kHz.
