Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 12-22

Gary DeBock

Hello All,

Unfortunately yesterday's exceptional TP-DXing conditions didn't continue through this morning, but there were still some potent Asian signals from several Korean big guns. The weaker Chinese and Japanese stations stayed down in the noise during the west coast sunrise period, although several of them were around during the Asian sunset period from 1000-1100 UTC (which generally had better propagation). 1566-HLAZ was strong with its Korean Christian program around 1015, and 972-HLCA had its best signal of the month around 1440 with its late-night easy listening music. Other than occasional good signals from 594-JOAK, 657-Pyongyang, 747-JOIB, 774-JOUB, 828-JOBB and 1134-KBS the sunrise enhancement session didn't deliver very much else, and yesterday's second-tier signals on 558, 738, 936, 1017, 1035, 1044, 1323, 1377, 1503 and 1593 were long gone. Of course, it's probably better to be thankful for whatever TP's still show up during the "December Doldrums," especially in a lean solar year.
