Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 1-15

Gary DeBock

Hello All,

Nick's report of good TP reception at 1400 was followed by a generous sunrise enhancement here, resulting in several very decent Asian signals (especially for January). 648-Voice of Russia had its best signal of the entire season here at 1535 during its Korean language program, while 603-China and 738-BEL2 had fair signals in and out. Low-band TP's seemed to get more of a boost here than the high band big guns, with 1566-HLAZ and 1575-VOA still under their usual signal levels. There was some unusual variety in signals from China this morning, with 936-Anhui and 1035-CNR1 showing up for the first time this new year. In general, it was one of the best low-band TP sessions in recent memory.
