The focus was on the 13 MHz and 21 MHz bands – this summary may be of interest, as observed in the 0400 to 0430 time span, using the Eton E5 radio, two metres antenna:
13630 UZBEKISTAN CVC-Tashkent Hindi
13655 CHINA CVC-Xian Cantonese

21560 MARIANAS Vatican Radio,Tinian, Chinese (interesting frequency choice!)

The 21 MHz transmissions at super-strength, little fading, suggesting a combined E/F2 propagation mode.
