Finally mixed up a batch of chems for another try at color. First print nearly black, ok, too much time on the print. Try again tomorrow. Next one just a tiny bit dark, color off, will try tomorrow. Next print, hmmmm... color not bad but why all these white streaks on the paper, unexposed, undeveloped... next two prints, same problem. Did my paper get freezer burned? Or is this agitation? I'm guessing the former with three prints in a row with horrible undeveloped areas:
try processing a sheet in the light. I would say paper flaw.
Paper looks fogged - note the really poor Dmin except for the really bright bit (or is that a flash reflection?) under the carriage. Or is the poor brightness a fault in your photo/scan of the print? Or maybe it's still overexposed.
The streaks look like no developer touched there or maybe damaged paper.
If it was drum processed there was probably not enough solution used for each step.
The bluish color looks like it might be under blixed but it could be fogged.
The white streaks tell me that the surface might not have been level (or drum motor). I'd make sure that solution touches all surfaces.

I'd suggest using simple&traditional tray processing to get rid of drum-related problems.
