TP 12 Jan Victoria version

Saturday, January 13 2018

Several Chinese turned up this morning (but not some of the Japanese
that Nigel heard), and there was a definite sunrise/post sunrise peak
in the upper band

pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker,
at least briefly):

774 JOUB several times at this level
1566 HLAZ man in Russian 1638UT; believe it or not, this was when
HLAZ' signal was strongest, well after local sunrise.

Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it
understandable by a native speaker, though often battling w/splash or noise):

639 CNR1 man in Chinese 1513UT; a couple of minutes earlier, when
weaker, it had been noted //945

828 JOBB female ballad //774 1458UT
972 HLCA man in Korean 1458UT, fading down towards pips on the hour

not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or
noise could be understood by a native speaker:

594 JOAK man in Japanese //567 1503UT
693 JOAB woman and man in Japanese //774 1540UT
747 JOIB man in Japanese //774 1501UT
873 JOGB ballad //774 before the hour; woman talking in Japanese 1501UT
1287 JOHR man in Japanese 1517UT
1575 VoA "you are listening to the Voice of America" by man, 1600UT
1593 CNR1 woman in Chinese 1601UT

Burbles in the splatter and noise (if lucky, language might be
guessed at by cadence of talk, or parallel established by changes in
talk or music)

567 JOIK man talking //594 1503UT
603 woman singing ballad 1519UT; Korea?
837 JOQK man talking //594 1505UT
945 CNR1 man talking //639 1511UT
981 CNR1 man talking //639 1520UT
1098 woman talking, Chinese intonation 1508UT
1134 woman talking Japanese intonation 1508UT

Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or
ravaged by splatter)

558 738 855 864 891 918 936 1089 1143 1179 1188 1206 1242 1251
1269 1323 1359 1377 1386 1422 1458 1494 1503 1539 1557 1575
seemed to be Asian;

nothing seemed to be DU
