The broadcast was coming from the PBS Kanggye 50kW transmitter. The target audience was East Asia.

PBS has a website which can be found at……

The overall reception of PBS was fair. The signal strength was good, but there was severe interference from China National Radio CNR6 on 6165 kHz. There was also some interference from China National Radio CNR2 on 6155 kHz.

SINPO
42443

Below is a short video showing my reception of PBS on 6160 kHz.
