Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 10-20

Gary DeBock

Hello All,
It was another interesting morning for signals from the Asian mainland, with overall results very similar to yesterday's. The big gun TP's were very vibrant again, with 594, 693, 747, 774, 828, 972, 1053, 1566 and 1575 all strong at times (774-JOUB and 972-HLCA especially so).  A generous sunrise enhancement lasted until about 1500 here, during which plenty of weak Chinese domestic and CRI stations came out of the woodwork (although none of them were especially energetic).
Early on (at 1320) 1323-CRI managed its best audio ever here, and 648-VOR and 657-Pyongyang were both acting like big guns throughout the session, hitting their peaks around 1350. VOR was breaking through CISL splatter with its Chinese service while Pyongyang pounded in with orchestral music during the extended sunrise enhancement, although nearby 639-CNR1 had the typical anemic Chinese signal this morning. 639, 918, 927, 936, 963, 981, 1017, 1035, 1044, 1323 and 1593 all had poor to fair Chinese audio at times during the extended sunrise enhancement, although none of them sounded very vibrant. 558-HLQH, 603-HLSA and 738-BEL2 were also around at fair levels in and out all morning, but never very strong. Best signal of the morning was again from 972-HLCA, pounding in as usual with Korean YL conversation around 1410. Overall it was another interesting session for the Asian mainland, although probably far more interesting at Grayland.
73 and Good DX,
