AUSTRALIA. 5045, Ozy Radio. Sept 12, a day with very respectable
reception from this low powered station; 1156-1436 UTC; strongest
feature continues to be the old Radio Australia's "Waltzing Matilda,"
which were always well heard at 1156, 1206 (end of news), 1218, 1240,
1249, 1305 (end of news), 1337, 1348 (end of news, which mentioned
"suburban Melbourne," etc.), 1357, 1406 (end of news - please listen
to my audio) and 1417; sometimes able to make out the Dacelo
novaeguineae; new email address - ozyradio@gmail.com given with
IDs; mostly playing pop songs ("Hooked On A Feeling," etc.); my local
sunrise was at 1347 UT.

With today's improved reception of Ozy Radio, also came improved
signal from China (Beibu Bay Radio) on 5050, which caused some
QRM for Ozy Radio, so was forced to listen in LSB for the best results.

Considerable QRN (static) and only bits & pieces readable on my audio
ending with Dacelo novaeguineae, Waltzing Matilda and "Ozy Radio" ID,

Ron, listening at Asilomar State Beach (near Monterey), California
