It took quite a long time to go over the recordings from just 1410 to 1420UT 
this morning; I sort of felt like a deer in  the headlights of a Great Wall 
truck, or perhaps a fleet of them.   Usual disclaimer under these conditions 
that I must have missed a ton of them, multiple signals on various channels, 
sit on one channel and wait for them to fade in, etc. etc.

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

594 JOAK man in Japanese 1450UT; still traces of audio after 1600UT
774 JOUB English lessons 1436UT
828 JOBB man in Portuguese 1453UT
954 JOKR man in Japanese 1412UT, just owning the space between 950 and 960kHz
972 HLCA man in Korean 1411UT; something else underneath.  Still pretty good 
signal at 1539UT with slow oriental music and man in Korean

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

558 HLQB pop music //603 (which was poorer) 1414UT
666 JOBK man in Japanese //594 1412UT  
693 JOAB English lessons 1414UT
747 JOIB English lessons 1411UT
819 N. Korea  man in Korean 1414UT into orchestral music 1417UT; pips at 
1430UT.  But no other N. Koreans logged.
891 JOHK woman in Japanese //567 1419UT, biggest NHK1 at this time
981 CNR1 music from plucked instrument, man in Chinese 1413UT
1242 JOLF pop vocal 1442UT,
1323 CRI woman in Russian //963 1422UT ; still doing a nice job at 1525UT
1422 JORF man and woman in Japanese 1435UT
1566 HLAZ man in Chinese 1444UT; but kept coming back and was still quite 
readable at 1545UT

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

531 JOQG NHK1 interlude music 1415UT
603 HLSA soft music //558 1414UT, mostly underpowered today, and mixing with 
who knows what
639 CNR1 various times and various parallels, but didn't amount to much today
738 Taiwan Fisheries, woman in Chinese 1411UT
945 CNR1 man and woman in Chinese //1098 1525UT, but heard at this strength a 
number of times earlier
963 CRI woman in Russian //1323 1422UT
1116 woman in Chinese 1413UT CNR5?
1134 KBS man talking Korean 1425UT
1188 JOKP man in Japanese //1411UT
1287 JOHR man in Japanese, then  pop music 1537UT was its strongest appearance, 
nearly an hour after local sunrise
1575 VoA noted Yankee Doodle at 1530UT, quite weak, but earlier it reached this 
strength at various times with man/woman in SE Asian language
1593 CNR1 man and woman //945 1450UT

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)

603 man talking, Chinese intonation 1444UT
621 man talking, Chinese intonation 1419UT
711 pop vocals 1418UT Korea?
846 NHK1 synchros man talking //567 1411UT
909 man talking sounded Chinese  1416UT
918 woman talking, maybe Chinese 1414UT; big carrier again, but little audio
945 NHK1 synchros, interlude music u/CNR1 1414UT
999 man talking, sounded Chinese 1422UT, also 1411UT
1035 quiet orchestral music, then woman singing, not //945 1417UT;  no idea
1089 orchestral music,1454UT, CNR6?  still audio traces at 1552UT
1098 CNR1 man talking  //945 1439UT, but someone else there also; quite a mess
1143 Taiwan Fisheries woman talking //738 1444UT and 1423UT; earlier logging 
had someone else there also
1179 man talking Chinese intonation 1411UT
1215 CNR1 light stringed music, talk by man 1411UT //945
1224 woman talking Chinese intonation 1413UT; if anything on this channel in 
the past, it was NHK1
1242 unID. woman talking, sounded Chinese rather than usual Japanese 1516UT
1251 CNR1 man talking //945 1419UT; extreme minimalist DXing revealed this 
again 1536UT, quite poor with man talking, //6125
1305 unID soft music 1417UT
1503 JOUK man talking //594 1456UT
1557 man and woman  talking 1446U, Chinese intonation, but did not match up 
with RTI's web stream


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

702 765 855 864 891 909 936 1008 1017 1053 1107  1161 1206 1251  1269 1278 1314 
1341 1359 1386  1494  seemed to be Asian;
 846 seemed to be DU
