Not a bad morning, with some of the DUs as well as the Korean big guns doing 
quite well; Japanese not quite so much.  The only definite Chinese was on 1323, 
but that had its moments also.  A number of the stronger signals became that 
way quite suddenly, with a quick (15 or 20 seconds) fade from mumbles to 
perfect readability.

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

576 2RN man and woman in DU English 1256UT //846

702 2BL woman mentioning ABC radio and emergency broadcasting  1252UT, after 
two men in DU English

972 HLCA man in Korean 1252UT

1566 HLAZ woman in Japanese 1254UT

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

594 JOAK  man in Japanese 1239UT

612 4QR woman in DU English "6 past 11; 6 past 9 in Western Australia" 1306UT

738 2NR man in DU English, sports announcing //612 1234UT

774 JOUB English lessons 1233UT

828 JOBB woman in Japanese 1252UT

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

594 3WV man in DU English //612 in a big mess with JOAK 1240UT

747 JOIB English lessons 1244UT

774 3LO woman in DU English mixing with JOUB 1253UT, //738 but not 702

891 woman in heavily accented English 1301UT; after fading down, man with a 
more DU accented English  sound was heard. 5AN?

1323 CRI woman in Russian 1233UT

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 pop music, not //576 or 594, 1257UT; 2WEB?

756 man talking, DU English intonation 1232UT

846 2RN woman talking //576 1256UT

909 slow male ballad 1243UT; NZ?

1116 man talking, DU English intonation, a commercial? 1251UT

1134 man talking Japanese intonation 1246UT

1215 man talking, maybe Chinese??? 1230UT

1503 man talking DU English intonation? 1311UT

1548 woman talking DU English intonation 1337UT; heard on north Flag as well as 
the West one, which was a bit unusual

1575 man talking; Southeast Asian language? 1234UT

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

 567 693 873  891  1053 1089  1143  1206 1242 1422  1458 1593  seemed to be 
 531 558 603 675 837  846 855 864 1017 1035 1098  seemed to be DU
