Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 11-28 (Conclusion)

Gary DeBock

Hello All,
There were some fairly vibrant Asian signals to be Thankful for this morning on both the low and high band, as a generous sunrise enhancement repeated for a second day. The listening session started off here at 1500 with both 1017-CRI and 1593-CNR1 having unusual strength, and the latter managed one of its best sessions ever here through the 1590 Seattle splatter. Like yesterday, the low-band Asians on 639, 648 and 657 kicked into gear with good signals in and out around 1525, although yesterday's star 603-HLSA had trouble joining the party. It stayed at an anemic level all session long, failing to match even the fair-to-good signals of its 558-HLQH parallel.. Both 639-CNR1 and 648-VOR (Korean service) were at a steady fair to good level at this time, while 657-Pyongyang's bizarre music was mixing with the domestic splatter in an irritating way. 738-BEL2 also had signals improved over yesterday, but never came up to a more than a fair level.
936-Anhui (presumed) and 1377-CNR1 both managed fair signals in and out during the 1500-1520 period, and the Korean big guns on 972, 1134 and 1566 had no trouble being heard. The star of Thanksgiving morning here was 1593-CNR1, socking it to the 1590 Seattle splatter for most of the sunrise enhancement period. It was its best performance here for several years, and set the tone for what was a Chinese-dominated listening session.
639-CNR1  China Synchros   Fair to good Chinese
          male-female news at steady level around 1528
1593-CNR1  Changzhou, China   Good Chinese
          female-male speech and music through Seattle
          splatter at 1537; best signal in years here
73 and Good DX,
