A definite collapse this morning, even the big guns from Japan and Korea suffered. There was some DU action, including RNZ on 918 which is a rare visitor here.
pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker, at least briefly):
828 JOBB English lessons 1425UT
Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it understandable by a native speaker, though often battling w/splash or noise):
612 4QR teletalk, DU English, 1424UT; //various other ABC at various times
756 RNZ National folky vocal //675, 567, both very weak at 1421UT
774 JOUB English lessons 1422UT; likely 3LO underneath
972 HLCA man in Korean 1358UT
not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or noise could be understood by a native speaker:
594 JOAK man in Japanese, no pips 1400UT, battling fair bit with 3WV
1287 JOHR briefly at this level with man in Japanese 1425UT
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 RNZ National woman talking //918 1414UT
576 man talking DU English intonation 1422 2RN likely
