A vigorous morning, including even something sounding Chinese on 1305kHz.  On 
the other hand 657 hardly delivers anything here, I suspect because of the 
combined splatter from 660 and 650, and I just rarely dig around there when 
there are easier pickings elsewhere.

Peak signals seemed to be from 1420 to 1440UT approximately, and a number of 
channels seemed to have a couple of signals on them.

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

567 JOIK man in Japanese 1420UT //594 which was much weaker, and continued so 
for some time
594 JOAK man in Japanese 1447UT, but often weaker than this
774 JOIB English lessons 1438UT
828 JOBB English lessons 1421UT
972 HLCA man in Korean with another agreeing 1420UT

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

558 HLQB woman in Korean //603 (which was poorer) 1431-2UT.  
738 Taiwan Fisheries, woman in Chinese //747 JOIB English lessons 1423UT
774 JOUB English lessons 1437UT; this never quite made it to the top tier today

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

603 HLSA ballad  //558 1424UT, soon faded under man in likely Chinese
639 CNR1 news //6125 1431UT
693 JOAB English lessons 1427UT
837 man in Chinese 1432UT CNR5?
963 CRI woman in Russian //1323 1422UT
981 CNR1 woman in Chinese //639 1424UT
1098 CNR1 man in Chinese //981 1426UT
1143 Taiwan Fisheries woman in Chinese //738 1441UT
1287 JOHR man and woman in Japanese 1442UT
1566 HLAZ man in Chinese 1452UT

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 man and woman talking //594 1425UT
585 JOPG ballad //594  1436UT
603 China? man talking, Chinese intonation 1424UT, fading above HLSA
612 man talking, DU English intonation 1428UT, but perhaps there was some NHK1 
in there, just as there might have been some 3WV on 594...
666 JOBK man talking //594 1423UT
711 man talking through 710 splash 1422UT; Korea?
756 CNR1 man talking //981  1425UT
864 pop music not //1287 1421-2UT
918 woman talking, maybe Chinese 1431UT; big carrier again, but little audio
945 a mess with at least a couple of audios, one maybe CNR1, the other with 
music; a mystery, as not //NHK1 1432UT
1089 orchestral music, man talking, Chinese intonation 1430UT CNR6?
1305 instrumental music 1425UT; also 1429UT, music finishing, man talking 
Chinese intonation, 1430UT
1323 CRI man talking Russian? //963 1422UT
1503 JOUK woman talking //594 1439UT
1593 CNR1 woman in Chinese 1458UT //6125

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

621 648  657 702 891 909 936 1008 1035  1053 1107 1134  1161 1206 1224  1242 
1251  1269 1386  1575   seemed to be Asian;
576  621  702 846 891 1017  seemed to be DU
