The January, 2023 edition of the Pacific Asian Log (PAL) is now available. It can be downloaded from the Radioheritage website https://www.radioheritage.com/ (click on the link at the top center of the page). Members of the IRCA groups.io list can also download the PAL from the files page at https://groups.io/g/IRCA/files/Station Lists and References/PAL-Jan-2023.pdf/
As usual, many changes and updates have been incorporated into this latest edition. They include:
- Fixing a large number of web links, as well as adding a few new ones
- Adding to and expanding the information on parallel frequencies
- Adding station and schedule information for the Japanese radio program Rekumen!
- Changing the cover. A few months ago, someone wrote and suggested using a higher resolution version of the map I have been using. I can’t find the email now, so my apologies go out to whoever it was. The suggestion prompted me to visit some on-line map collections in search of possible alternatives. The new map is similar to the old one, but future PAL covers may be different.
- Updating many station listings, and removing several silent stations in South Korea and elsewhere
- Making some minor organization and presentation tweaks

First issued in 2001, The PAL lists medium wave and domestic shortwave broadcasting stations in southern and eastern Asia and the Pacific. It lists nearly 5000 stations in over 50 countries, with frequencies, call signs, locations, power, networks, websites, streaming audio, schedules, languages, formats, networks and other information.
