1116kHz 4BH Brisbane, QLD, Aus Thu Oct 14 at 1459UTC with fair signal, oldies song into station top of hour id and female newsreader. not the best signal I've had from them by any means, but I've rarely caught a top of hour from many stations.  6.3kw night power at 6850 miles. Audio:

1314kHz Sky Racing Radio, Wollongong, NSW, Aus Thu Oct 14 at 1620UTC with live horse racing action. Signal and audio are poor and fade down a bit, but no mistaking what this is vs the other 1314 in Australia thats sports TALK.  5kw at 7344 miles. Audio:

1449kHz IRIB World Service, Bandar-e Torkaman, Iran in Turkmen on Sat Oct 16 at 1510UTC. Signal is pretty decent with a bit of a het from KLAM 1450 300 miles away but gets abundantly clear just a little over into the recording. I'm guessing at the rate at which the guy is talking and a few of the words I pick out, this is some kind of religious recitation/speech.  400kw via 5835 mile trans-polar path. Audio:

1512kHz IRIB Radio Ardabil, Ardabill Iran on Fri Oct 15 at 1611UTC with somewhat lively chat between two men. It was not the 1 megawatt Saudi and I was able to confirm that because the content I heard on 1512 matched the Iran webstream. 50kw via 5320 mile transpolar path. Audio:
