Some fairly energetic Asians were evident on both the low and high bands around 1400 this morning, although they seemed to run out of steam after 1430. On the low band the Korean parallels on 558 and 603 were at similar good strength around 1405, while the Japanese on 594, 693 and 774 were in and out with similar signals. 972-HLCA hit its peak with very good signals around 1350, while the 1053-Jammer had a fair buzz at the time.
On the high band quite a few stations were also managing audio just before 1400, including 1377-CNR1 (fair), 1503-JOUK (fair), 1566-HLAZ (excellent), 1575-VOA (good) and 1593-CNR1 (fair). Unfortunately most of the signals seemed to slide off around 1430, leaving only a few die-hards like 1575-VOA and 1593-CNR1around by 1445.
