Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 2-9

Gary DeBock

Hello All,

After wrapping up an antenna project at 1200 UTC a brief check of the band was made here, which revealed potent signals from several Korean big guns. 972, 1053 (Jammer) and 1566 were all pounding in, while 558 (Korean), 594, 603 (Korean), 693, 738 (Chinese), 828, 1134 (Korean), 1287, 1503 and 1575 were also managing fair audio at times. The 1200-1415 UTC listening session apparently was right between Dennis and Nick's reports, and seemed to feature unusually good TP propagation (for February, at least).

1566-HLAZ pegged the humble C.Crane SWP Ultralight's signal display with a huge signal at 1310 during its Japanese program, and the 1053-Jammer was vibrant during this early morning session. To follow up on Nick's curiosity about a possible Jammer sign-off prior to our west coast sunrise period, I stayed on 1053 with the Jammer until 1400 UTC, when its signal seemed to be turned off suddenly. There were no sign-off chimes, however :-)
972  HLCA  Dangjin, S. Korea  Good Korean YL speech
            at 1240 during music program
1053  Korean Jammer  Good buzz at 1250; dominated
            frequency until "sign-off" at 1400
1566  HLAZ  Jeju, S. Korea  Monster signal at 1310
           during Japanese Christian program (pegged the
           Ultralight signal display)
73 and Good DX,
