Good propagation opening on 9 MHz

 
GOOD PROPAGATION OPENING ON 9 MHz.
 
Remarkable signals from Asia, Africa, Europe,and Middle East.
 
The continuing shut-down of international broadcasters is opening up many channels for reception of lower-powered local and domestic services, previously hidden beneath the super-powered transmitters.
 
An example of this is the activity in the 9 MHz band in the late afternoon and early evening window here in Melbourne, several hours before our mid-summer sunset. Study of channel occupancy in the time span 0730 to 0800 on January 1 2015 revealed many transmissions which are seldom or never heard, including several Chinese domestic broadcasters carrying their local daytime services. Propagation is complex, comprising mixed E and F1/F2  modes, with transmission paths over substantially daylight routes.
