At about 1313 UTC on 20th May 2022, I tuned in to Shiokaze (Sea-breeze) broadcasting in the Japanese language on 5935 kHz.
On shortwave since 30th October 2005, JSR Shiokaze is produced by the private ‘Investigation Commission on Missing Japanese Probably related to North Korea’ (COMJAN). It is aimed at reaching Japanese citizens believed to have been abducted to North Korea between 1977 and 1983.
The broadcast was coming from the Ibaragi-Koga-Yamata 300kW transmitter in Japan.
The overall reception of Shiokaze (Sea Breeze) was good.
Below is a short video showing my reception of Shiokaze (Sea Breeze).
