AUCKLAND VOLMET 6679 khz USB 1052 UTC 9 September 2017
« on: September 09, 2017, 1056 UTC »
1052 UTC OM in English....possibly New Zealand? Auckland Volmet is listed for 20 and 50 minutes past the hour.
1120 UTC OM in English giving info on Auckland and Christchurch, plus others
(Signal is fair amidst the noise and about 50 percent copy)

I can get this one with regularity in the early AM, when it's dark there, here, and in between, and sometimes a bit after the sun rises here. Congrats, it must be tough once it's bounced across the whole continent.

Not sure if this is a tough log, as I don't check this frequency very often, but I have it here again this morning the 10th at abrupt  1120 UTC sign on. Again, about 50% copy, maybe a little more. Off abrupt at 1125 UTC. Nothing heard after.

I had it at 1220. That's how it goes, on abruptly at 00:20 or 00:50, off just as abruptly five minutes later. You should check any time you're up before dawn. I'd be interested in seeing how regularly you can get it.

Also check for these: Australia Volmet on 6676 USB at :00 and :30 for five minutes, and VMC Charleville QL (also Australia) at 6507, also :00 and :30, but they're on for at least 10 minutes. I seldom get usable audio, but I can always tell that they're there.
