MW and FM in April 2016 (in Nagasaki, Japan)
Tsushima is an island of the Japanese archipelago located in the Korea Strait between the Japanese mainland and the Korean Peninsula, belongs to Nagasaki prefecture, Japan.
The north faces the Korean Peninsula across the Korea Strait; the shortest distance to peninsula is 49.5km, near Busan the second largest city in South Korea.
The south faces Iki island, the Kyushu mainland across Tsushima Channel, and sea route to Hakata (Fukuoka) is 138km.
I've been to there in last April and tried to catch Korean FM and MW stations in the most north part of the island by my ATS-909X.
I could hear quite a few Korean FM stations (up to 60 frequencies) including the following three RDS available stations.
On the other hand, no more than six Japanese FM stations were confirmed at the same place.
'KBS' is the only national public broadcasting station in South Korea, corresponds to NHK in Japan.
91.7MHz KBS-Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do (near Busan)
【MW in daytime】
The following results are from the loggings heard at the 'Hill where neighbor country sees it' around 2PM by my ATS-909X with internal anenna.
'MBC', 'CBS' and 'FEBC' are major private radio networks in South Korea.
