KBS World Radio

KBS World Radio transmitting from Kimjae was heard on 20 May 2016.  A English language broadcast featuring news, Korean current events magazine and music was heard from 16.00 till 17.00 UTC.  Reception on the short-wave frequency of 9.640 kHz was good with clear audio, minimal fading and no noticeable interference, earning a SINPO rating of  45444

A Bahasa Indonesia broadcast on 9.805 kHz, also on air from 16.00 till 17.00 UTC, was heard as well. Reception was initially good, but later into the broadcast there appeared to be so co-frequency QRM from a Chinese speaking broadcaster.

Reception report was emailed and submitted to KBS World Radio. I have submitted at least three previous reception reports and to no response, not even a computer-generated message. For an international broadcaster with exceptionally good programming, their response time seems a tad too long. QSL card arrived in mail with another QSL for June on 24 June 2016. But still no QSLs for previous reception reports.
