Heart and Seoul



KBS World from South Korea continues to put a good signal out courtesy of the relay station they use in Skelton, Cumbria. 

Seoul Calling is a good listen with Sydney Lingford and new arrival, Englishman Mark Broome. Sydney (who hails from Chicago) has been at the station for a couple of years and also writes a blog called From Sydney to Seoul.

The station’s slogan “Korea’s sole international broadcaster in eleven languages” may be a clever play on words, with “sole” and “Seoul” but it’s incorrect. They have conveniently forgotten their neighbour to the north... 

Anyway, for English to Europe you can currently tune into the south from 1600 to 1700 UTC on 9515kHz, 1800 to 1900 UTC on 7275 and 2200 to 2230 UTC on 3955 kHz.
