IRCA
Only bits and pieces of occasional audio on a couple this morning. Lots
of hets over the whole band and lasting 40 minutes past sunrise (1425
utc) but nothing faded up to even halfway decent level.

774 Japan 1410 utc very poor talk; 1438 very poor talk; 1448 very poor
talk; 1500 pips and chime very poor

972 S Korea 1424 utc very poor male talk; 1446 very poor male talk

1566 S Korea 1428 utc traces of talk

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

best wishes,

IRCA
Steve called it correctly this morning, as today was even better than
yesterday. This week has seen the best spell of Asian DX seen here all
season. The lower band was about the same as yesterday, but the upper
band was improved. The peak seemed to occur well before our 1517
sunrise, and indeed things were on the way down by 1430.

567 JOIK Sapporo, JAPAN Time pips at 1300, into talk by man in Japanese
after that.

594 JOAK Tokyo, JAPAN Woman speaking in Japanese at 1306

666 JOBK Osaka, JAPAN Time pips at 1300, then man in Japanese. This one
was not as good as yesterday.

693 JOAB Tokyo, JAPAN Inferior to the other 'big guns' today, and not
reaching audio until 1325.

738 unID Woman talking at 1307, but too weak to be sure on language.

747 JOIB Sapporo, JAPAN Man and woman with English language lesson at 1303

774 JOUB Akita, JAPAN Man and woman with English language lesson at
1304, //747.

819 unID Man talking at 1257, but too weak to ID language.

828 JOBB Osaka, JAPAN Man and woman presenting English lesson (talking
about Sri Lankan Navy saving 2 elephants) at 1305.

873 JOGB Kumamoto, JAPAN Much like yesterday, with bits of pieces of
the language lesson making it through the splatter at 1414.

972 HLCA Danjing, S.KOREA Woman speaking in Korean at 1309

1017 unID Traces of audio with music at 1417.

1116 4BC Brisbane, AUSTRALIA Woman presenting a commercial at 1316.

1134 unID Traces of piano music and man speaking at 1259

1278 unID JOFR? Very weak, but man seemed to be talking in Japanese at 1443

1287 JOHR Sapporo, JAPAN Woman talking in Japanese at 1330

1377 CNR1 CHINA Woman in Chinese at 1446 audible during gaps in 1380
splatter.

1386 NHK2 synchros, JAPAN Time pips at 1400, short musical theme, then
man and woman with language lesson.

1422 JORF Yokohama, JAPAN Traces of woman in Japanese at 1439

1503 uID Traces of audio at 1440

1566 HLAZ Jeju, S.KOREA Man talking in Japanese at 1310.

1575 VOA THAILAND Woman in SE Asian language at 1441
