Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 1-16

Gary DeBock

Hello All,
Asian signals had a revival this morning, especially on the high band. 1566-HLAZ was the star of the morning (with its Chinese service hitting an excellent level around 1415), and a collection of other high band Asians were boosted by a generous sunrise enhancement from 1515-1550.
Early on (from 1415-1500) not much more than 1566-HLAZ was showing much energy, but the dawn of daylight around 1515 also boosted 1287-JOHR, 1377-CNR1, 1503-JOUK, 1575-VOA and 1593-CNR1 up to good levels in and out of the domestic splatter. A brief check of the low band at 1540 also revealed fair signals from 594-JOAK and 603-HLSA in and out, although both were pretty anemic compared to the high band Asians. 1503-JOUK had one of its best signals of the winter here around 1545, along with 1287-JOHR at 1550. If Dennis was listening this morning he must have received quite a few of high band Japanese, since he typically has much better propagation from that area than I do. The sole survivor here at 1600 was again the overachieving 1593-CNR1, which managed to get through the 1590-Seattle splatter with fair to good signals for most of sunrise enhancement. Overall it was a pretty average morning, but after the last couple of miserable days it seemed like quite a breakthrough.
73 and Good DX,
