A much more Asian morning than it had any right to be, and quite a number of second tier Japanese without accompanying vigor from the first string. There was far less DU than I had expected as well, plus there was sunrise enhancement, and VoA even lasted a little while past sunrise. Overall, signal levels were low.
pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker, at least briefly):
828 JOBB Chinese lessons 1341UT
Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it understandable by a native speaker, though often battling w/splash or noise):
774 JOUB English lessons 1402UT
not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or noise could be understood by a native speaker:
594 JOAK man in Japanese 1411UT
891 JOHK man in Japanese, then woman 1320UT, only NHK1 audible at this time
1566 HLAZ woman in Chinese 1351UT
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)
693 JOAB Chinese lessons //828 1342UT
747 JOIB English lessons //828 1402UT
756 man talking, DU English intonation , then into ballad, 1338UT; RNZ National?
954 man talking, Japanese intonation 1321UT, murderous 950 splatter.
1017 traces of island vocals, assumed Tonga 1344UT
1134 two men talking, Japanese intonation 1333UT
1143 Taiwan Fisheries, talk by man sounded almost Russian 1358UT, but the music following was parallel with Taiwan Fisheries webstream. I wonder if this station is broadcasting to mariners of other nationalities?
1332 JOSF pop music 1351UT //1242
1386 NHK2 on north Flag, English lessons //774 1405UT
1422 pop vocals 1409UT, north Flag, so assumed JORF
1575 VoA man talking 1415UT, interview of some sort. Best on west Flag, but eventually at 1430UT, standard VoA ID and Yankee Doodle
Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)
873 909 1053 1089 1179 1269 1314 1503 seemed to be Asian;
657 837 846 909 1017 seemed to be DU
