Recorder Catches on 6679 USB

Just for something different, I recorded the PAC 6679 Volmet net overnight to see what could be heard.  The recording period was 0300 to 1115 UTC.  I thought this might be interesting now that Radio Totse is being heard again.

Honolulu could be heard in almost all of its assigned time slots with fair to very good signals.

Auckland could be heard in all of its time slots from 0520 UTC on with fair to good signals.

Not a peep was heard in the H+10, H+15, H+40, or H+45 slots.

I found one site which says that Auckland has a 5kW transmitter here, but no definitive indication of what the actual power is.  Anybody have an idea?
