Brian, from my "aea.or.jp" e-mail address I have sent you some information
today.  Plz. note.
There is a KCNA blackout for mysterious reasons.  I will check RadioPress
(a Japanese monitoring agency), located down the street from me here in
Tokyo. Your right, what a bunch of BS....but who would be surprised....BS
has been the DPRK's chief export since 1948....

In an earlier post to this newsgroup, Keith Stein reported that the North
Korean
news agency published the dates and times when the supposed North Korean
satel-
lite would be visible over various N. Korean cities.

Since North Korea has no satellite, they probably calculcated when the Mir
space
station or other easy-to-see satellite would be passing over the DPRK and
are
encouraging the population to go outside and take a look.

An interesting propaganda ploy.
