#3 A retired US National Security Agency source said the fact it was a 10-11 meter frequency band in the middle of the night, considering that North Korea does not have relay stations like many other shortwave stations, would make the target local to South Korea, Japan or northern China.

As I remember, the time of the broadcast would be used as the decode key for the body of 'content to follow'. As in someone on a public forum (state TV weather report?) mentions "The moon will be at it's maximum brightness tonight at 12:27".

Night time for a surfacing comm-sub/drone within range of the handset that could render the message then retrans via more(secure) sophisticated means to an accompanying launch transport.

Contrary to some opinion a brilliant moon creates great reflections on the surface to hide a passive antenna trailing parallel to the wave troughs.
