The last week of Autumn!

Here in Melbourne, long-haul propagation during our daytime is now starting to exhibit the winter pattern, with 9 MHz now open for the full 24 hrs.
I would anticipate that as we move into winter, which officially starts on June 1, propagation at around our local noon will reveal long-distance activity on 6 MHz and 7 MHz, from most continents.
An  inspection of the the 9 MHz band between 0045 and 0100 (that's 10.45 am local) on May 28 2013, showed most channels occupied, including these signals, a mixture of long and short-path modes:
9420 GREECE VOG Greek
9465 MOLDOVA VOR-Kishinev English
9490 F. GUYANA R. Republica, Montsinery, Spanish
9520 GERMANY R. Athmeeya Yutra via Nauen, Indian langs
9525 ROMANIA RRI Romanian
9590 CHINA CRI-Kashi Spanish
9740 SINGAPORE BBC English
9800 CHINA CRI-Kashi Spanish
9835 MALAYSIA RTVM-Kajang Malay
9870 INDIA Hindi
With the progressive abandonment of shortwave by international broadcasters,  there are now exciting possibilities for discovering regional and/or local broadcasts during our winter daytime windows on 6, 7, and 9 MHz.
Stay tuned!
