Some pretty good, extended time on and off with 1413 "Vesti FM" Moldova.

Had my first sighting of 1062 Turkey and it wasnt too bad.

Had Romania on 1053 and 1179. 1053 was ok in short spurts but you can clearly hear the 3rd harmonic of my local 1kw beacon underneath.

Had Iran on 1026 and Lithuania on 1386

Audio: http://bit.ly/Aus1116Oct14_1459utc

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: http://bit.ly/aus1314Oct14_1620utc

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.

Had a brief, good blip of Iran on 1449
Had a slightly longer but only "Decent" rise up of  Iran on 1026.
Had my first sighting of Radio Baltive Waves on 1386
Vesti FM on 1413 Moldova made a weaker then usual showing.

1386 Lithuania and 1413 Moldova can be very strong here.

Iran is a transpolar path for me so if this stuff is showing up now, it only means good things for the rest of winter I think

Thanks for the trans Arctic reports, Paul. 

It might be worth using my north Flag at sunrise here over the next few weeks to see what pops up.  Normally,  I use the west Flag in the mornings, but that's not so good for trans-Arctic signals.
