Author Topic: VoV off frequency at 12.019MHz ?  (Read 7308 times)

Was tuned into to Voice of Vietnam (VoV) at 14:00 GMT at 12.019MHz. This is puzzling as one would expect VoV to be on 12.020MHz per standard HF channel spacing. The online s/w listings also show the carrier frequency as 12.020MHz. Receiver is GPS disciplined and all other stations fall into the 5Kc spacing as expected.  They can't possibly be off 1.0Kc by accident?

Sorry if this has been discussed before - a search returned no information.

It's possible and not unheard of.  Wink

Equipment failure, or some clown accidentally rubbing against a knob?  Shocked

Thanks for the responses. A curious thing.

Their signal is pretty good. NHK and I think it's Romania put a blistering signal into So.CA.  Radio Australia and RNZ do very well also. Oddly, Radio Habana not so much.

Regards All,

Why even reply if you have nothing useful for the conversation? I can't stand trolls like you.
