It was a fine morning to foul up the automatic SDR recording, judging by the signal strength traces....maybe tomorrow.

ÂÂÂÂÂÂ Yesterday was another total dud, but today brought a return to
some audio, although all from DU in my case:

594Â ÂÂ 3WVÂÂÂ Horsham, AUSTRALIAÂÂÂ Weak, with bits of talk at 1518

612ÂÂÂ 4QRÂÂÂ Brisbane, AUSTRALIAÂÂÂ ABC news at 1503

792ÂÂÂ 4RNÂÂÂ Brisbane, AUSTRALIAÂÂÂ Talk about New York, with US guest
at 1516

828 Â 3GI Sale, AUSTRALIA  ABC news at 1502

1026 4MK Mackay, AUSTRALIA Talk by Aussie-accented announcer
at 1507

1116 4BC Brisbane, AUSTRALIA News by woman at 1501

1548ÂÂÂ 4QDÂÂÂ Emerald, AUSTRALIAÂÂÂ Man talking noted at 1510 during
breaks in 1550 splatter

1566ÂÂÂ 3NEÂÂÂ Wangaretta, AUSTRALIAÂÂÂ Talk by woman at 1520, confirmed
// with local SDR.ÂÂÂ No sign of Korea.

a return, at last, to a small semblance of TPs. High point today was Taiwan on 1557 complete with an ID. There was also a small Aussie opening around 1540UT

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

594 JOAK 1547UT

612 4QR ABC news app announcement 1541UT

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

774 JOUB music box s/off 1532UT

828 JOBB English lessons 1501UT, but strength deteriorated from then on

1557 RTI Taiwan, nice lady read an ID right out of the pages of WRTH: " ...chungyang guangpo dientai, Taiwan chih yin" 1613UT

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

594 3WV //612 over JOAK 1537UT

1566 HLAZ woman in Russian 1651UT, then fading up and down until 1700UT, when perfectly serviceable "welcome to the Voice of America" and a VoA jingle were heard

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)

576 music and talk, only on west Flag 1535UT 2RN?

585 pop music, west Flag only, not //576 or 594 1534UT; 2WEB?

693 JOAB music box s/off 1531UT

702 2BL //612 and leading somewhat 1537UT

738 2NR lagging 612 a bit 1539UT

774 3LO //612 1537UT

873 JOGB s/off anthem 1530UT

891 5AN ABC fanfare 1530UT

972 woman talking Korean intonation? 1622UT

1017 man talking, island intonation? 1533UT

1287 man talking, Japanese intonation 1602UT

1323 light music 1536UT CRI?

1575 man talking, SE Asian language? 1537UT, better on north Flag

Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)
747 891 918 945 1188 1242 1332 1593 seemed to be Asian;
567 846 855 936 1098 seemed to be DU
