Not sure I can take another morning like that one...

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

well yes, 594 JOAK , 747 JOIB, 774 JOUB, 828 JOBB, 1053 the jammer, 1566 HLAZ with Japanese program; sometimes they faded, then they came back and assaulted the eardrums once more.


567 JOIK woman in Japanese //594 1333UT
1566 HLAZ woman in Chinese 1222UT (not quite as good as the Japanese program, but very listenable)

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

612 4QR for a changed of pace, man in DU English 1343UT
639 CNR1 and?  low and high pip at 1330UT, sounded like Beijing time check
657 slow music 1253UT
702 2BL woman and man in DU English 1354UT //612 which was weaker
774 3LO weak ABC pips u/NHK2 which still dominated at 1400UT
819 North Korea? operatic singing 1307UT and 1318UT
837 JOQK man in Japanese //594 1340UT
891 JOHK man in Japanese //594 1343UT
954 JOKR woman in Japanese 1336UT
1134 JOQR man in Japanese 1319 commercial jingle; earlier (1246UT) accompanied by another station, low energy man as a contrast. 1287 JOHR man and woman in Japanese bookending things, this strength 1157UT and 1344UT

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

576 pop music 1331UT Aussie?
603 HLSA woman in Korean into soft music //558 1324UT
693 JOAB snippets of man in Japanese //774 popping above the 690 splatter 1152UT; had it later and better, but my notes are too chaotic to find that just now 711 HLKA man talking 1330UT, squabbling with 710 splatter; ID'd earlier by //864 at 1256UT, lagging slightly
873 JOGB man in Japanese after pips 1100UT //774
981 CNR1 man and woman in rapid Chinese 1325-6 //1098 and //1035
1008 JONR man in rapid Japanese 1317UT
1017 CRI likely, woman in Korean, musical interlude 1330UT
1044 CRI woman in Japanese, couldn't find any shortwave parallels though
1098 CNR1 slightly offset from //981
1143 pop music not //738 at 1341UT, something else with it a couple of minutes earlier?
1206 Yanbian woman in Korean, then man, off channel, 1301UT
1575 VoA? man talking SE Asian language of some sort, soon faded 1236UT

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)

531 JOQG woman talking //594 1237UT
603 JOOG/JOKK man talking rapidly //594 1322UT; haven't heard this for long time
621 traces on female operatic singing 1303UT
702 NHK2 man talking //774 1322UT, plus something else.
729 man talking briefly creeping through 730 splatter 1310UT, not //567 though
909 woman talking, not //774 1337UT
918 man talking Chinese inflection 1325UT
1035 CNR1 man and woman in rapid Chinese 1325-6 //1098  and 981
1116 pop music, woman talking, Japanese inflection 1335UT
1152  NHK2 synchros Chinese lessons //747 1342UT
1179 woman talking Japanese inflection 1319UT
1386 NHK2 man talking //747 1325UT

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