That was another keeper....going through the SDR files was spectacularly wearing, as I kept diving down rabbit holes of at least two stations on a channel, or jumping on odd channels like 999 poking its nose up. Yes, some of the big ones got missed on today's list, and actually for all the density of signals, the big ones were still erratic. At one point 729 was stronger than its parallel on 594 for example.

I would guess the peak was around 1335-1345UT, though things were hopping pretty much from before 1200UT

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

567 JOIK woman in Japanese 1350UT
747 JOIB 1355UT Chinese lessons
774 JOUB English lessons 1201UT, Chinese lessons 1354UT, and many other times in between
954 JOKR man in Japanese 1351UT
972 HLCA man in Korean 1201UT
1053 Korean jammer 1305UT, but variable like all the others
1287 JOHR two women in Japanese 1342UT
1566 HLAZ man in Japanese 1237UT but not that reliably strong

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 1341UT; IDd a couple of minutes later //6125
702 NHK2 man in Japanese 1327UT, //774. Other stuff burbling in there, but no idea what
1017 CRI presumed woman in Korean 1336UT
1242 JOLF woman in Japanese 1359UT, cuckoo pips on the hour

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

657 N. Korea, orchestral music 1304UT; man haranguing earlier, but weaker; this was heard //855 at 1313UT
819 N. Korea assumed, operatic singing  1306UT
891 JOHK man in Japanese //594 1352UT
981 CNR1 man in Chinese 1252UT //639
1026 woman in Chinese 1325UT. Thanks to Colin Newell for pointing this out; only heard for about 90 seconds. Guizhou RGD?
1206 Yanbian man in Korean, woman agreesing 1334UT
1323 CRI woman in Russian 1311UT; oriental violin piece leading up to chimes and fanfare had been heard weakly at 1200UT

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)

585 JOPG man and woman in Japanese //594 1323UT
603 HLSA chimes and single pip 1200UT into soft vocal music; always a big carrier and weak audio here
639 JOIP woman talking //567 1338UT, mixing with CNR1
666 JOBK woman talking //594 1337UT
675 man and woman talking, maybe Vietnam?  1346-7UT
720 woman talking,  Chinese inflection, dominant on channel 1338UT
711 HLKA man carrying on in almost northerly style, perhaps complaining about the 710 splatter; by 1207UT, a quieter man was interjecting; possibly parallel to very ragged 864, plus a later 1044 parallel. 729 JOCK woman talking, NHK pips 1200UT, then woman talking //594; also //567 1336UT. Pretty mashed by 730 splash
738 serious orchestral music mixing with pop vocal 1309UT, no idea?
855 N. Korea, operatic singing 1211UT, N. Korea assumed and ID'd 1313UT by //657
864 HLKR woman talking //1044 1313UT, slight offset
909 NHK2 Chinese lessons //774 1346UT and 1334UT
918 man talking Chinese inflection 1248 and 1308UT
999 operatic choral music, very faint in splash, not //819, 1338UT; carrier at 998.952kHz, N. Korea assumed 1035 finally some audio on this jumble of carriers, woman and man talking all mixed up; no way to establish CNR1 //, some of these seem multiple seconds offset from each other
1098 CNR1 man in Chinese //639 1342UT
1044 KBS1 traces of piano music //711, slightly offset, 1310UT
1116 man talking DU English? 1334UT
1134 man talking, somewhat subdued, Korea?
1386 English lessons //747 1249UT
1575 woman in SE Asian sounding talk 1331UT; nothing on half hour
1593 CNR1 woman then man talking //981 1323UT; no sign of interference on 1566 at this time.

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

 549 612 846 936 945 1107  1125 1179  1251 1269  1314  1332 1458 1476 1503
