Decent reception (333) to Colorado from Voice of Korea (Kujang) for a few minutes then abruptly terminated broadcaster in mid-sentence.

Unidentified on 11 meters.  Spanish conversation between hams (?) or other operators.  I heard about 3-4 different individuals. Signal was sporatic (232) with sometimes an echo in the voices and other times a digital sequence heard.  Reception did not improve if I switched to USB/LSB. I should learn Spanish.

Speed QSLing from V31XX station in Consejo, Belize operated by Bill K4XS.  Signal improved to 333.  He said he does about 200-250 QSLs an hour when he is contesting. I heard more than 20 in as many minutes.  The station has several large antennas, but primarily uses a 4 element 136 foot Yagi.

Rather strong signal (333) from Nippon no Kaze this morning in Korean.  Some background wind hiss; but otherwise very clear.

Strange buzz-hum:  About 12 seconds on and 17 seconds off continuously repeating.  Two tones, one low and one mid tone, aharmonic.  A kind of grinding sound similar to a low frequency buzz saw or a slow tooth drill or wind blowing through an underground tunnel (spooky).  Heard on my Tecsun S-2000  in Colorado with its internal antenna.  Exterior antenna did not improve sound.  On USB and LSB the the sound had a higher tonality but not substantially improved.  Will try to get an audio of it, if it continues.

Latin hip hop playing away at Radio Nacional da Amazonia from Brazilia.  Reception improved after 0004.  SINPO:24442 toward 34333.
