Faulty North Korean transmitter

Post by AMDXHUN » 02 Dec 2018 21:31

Today I received this via japanase SDR: https://youtu.be/K57qWdGA0qQ

The transmitter of Pyongyang BS in Kimchaek is failed and drifted from 801 to 805 kHz. And also have distorted audio and humming.
Or not thave enough power to feed the transmitter?

The unstable transmitter is again on 800.7 kHz with good audio again but with less power. So the stronger, drifting is an backup transmitter, the stable but lower power TX is the main. Observed on Fukushima SDR.

But another distorted and drifting Pyongyang BS appeared on 817v kHz, but from another area. It is strong on Seoul SDR, and PBS is missing from 810 khz, Kaesong. Probably that TX is falied, or just it is underpowered due the lack of enough voltage, because of power problems in the country. But now it is jamming Pyongyang 819 :D
