The new edition of "'Sounds of Shortwave" may down be downloaded. It is a compilation of off-air signals from Asia, as monitored here in Melbourne on January 6, 2011, in the early afternoon, 0300 to 0400 UTC.

It includes many signals propagating via the Summer Daytime Specialized Mode on 9 MHz and 11 MHz.

My narrative indicates the frequency, time, station name, country and language for each signal.

The actual monitoring site was in the Pound Benmd Reserve, Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of central Melbourne, using the little Eton E5 receiver and 5 m of random antenna in a gum tree.

Comments and reactions would be appreciated!
