JJC/9VF Kyodo Radio FAX

KYODO NEWS FAX reception on 10 September (1910z)

KYODO NEWS, founded in November 1945 as a nonprofit cooperative organization, is the leading news agency in Japan.Kyodo distributes English-language news, known as Kyodo World Services (KWS), to Japanese and transnational media 24 hours a day on a real-time basis. Subscribers include the head offices and Tokyo bureaus of major newspapers, TV-radio stations and electronic news media in Asia, the United States and Europe. They use KWS mainly as a first-hand source of information on Japan and the rest of Asia. KWS is also sent to international organizations and Japanese diplomatic missions throughout the world.

HF-FAX service
Kyodo issues newspapers, both in Japanese and English, that are radio-transmitted twice a day to about 800 ocean-going ships and fishing boats, and hotels in resorts abroad. First published in 1964, the newspapers marked the 30,000th edition in October 2007.
Radio stations JJC in Japan and 9VF in Singapore (not affiliated with the meteorological agency) are directly operated by Kyodo News and they are the last marine weather fax station which faxes daily news and navigational warnings.
JJC and 9VF are listed in the guide written by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the US (available here). Informations are dated March 1, 1999 and provided by Kyodo News April 2001.
