Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 1-9

Gary DeBock

Hello All,
Despite the dire solar predictions some fair Asian signals made it through this morning, with even a fairly good sunrise enhancement period-- something that has been pretty unusual lately. Like Dennis I noticed that none of the signals from 1440-1510 were particularly strong, although 1575-VOA did reach a fairly potent level during sunrise enhancement.
My own session started off around 1430, with strange stations like 738-BEL2 and 936-Anhui again managing fair audio while the Japanese big guns were down in the noise (like two days ago). 972-HLCA was in and out with fair to good audio from 1430-1500, and 648-VOR occasionally broke through the CISL splatter with apparent English during this period. Other than this unusual collection of Asians there was no other TP audio during the predawn darkness here. Around 1515 sunrise enhancement started to bring up the signals from 1575-VOA (very good audio in and out around 1540), 1593-CNR1 (fair around 1535), 1377-CNR1 (poor to fair around 1545) and 648-VOR (fair at 1543). Except for occasional poor audio from 594-JOAK, 747-JOIB and 828-JOBB the Japanese seemed to be MIA this morning, along with the Korean big guns on 1053 and 1566. That was pretty much the story of another strange morning.
73 and Good DX,
