KOREA REP OF KBSWR new 11 UT on 9570 kHz no-show.

Checking up 31mb at 1100 UT on Jan. 1, 2024: new 1100 UT English broadcast
from KBS World Radio on 9570 kHz is not heard at all; in fact it could be
a QRM problem with KNLS-Alaska in Russian on same time/freq., and KNLS was
noted with IS, announcements in Russian, then Christian music at 1101 UT,
SIO 353. Heard on Grundig G5 with whip, and Chinese signals are found on
most 31mb channels.

Re: KBSWR new 11 UT on 9570 no-show.
According to their website, 9570 kHz is now at 1000-1100 UT, instead of
1100-1200 UT.
