Asian results here were somewhat similar to those reported by Dennis as the TP's struggled back from the recent unsettled solar conditions. Yesterday's star 738-Tahiti was long gone, but three Korean and Chinese stations managed fair to good audio right in the middle of the band from 1305-1320. One of these was 1044-CRI-- a rather unusual station to be received during lackluster propagation.
My session started off at 1300, when even decent TP carriers were scarce. Around 1303 the Korean big gun 972-HLCA came into fair audio through "Freedom 970" splatter, followed shortly by 1044-CRI and the 1053-Jammer. Oddly enough, none of the low or high band Asians were managing any audio at all during this period. 972-HLCA's music and 1044-CRI's Japanese service reached fair levels during peaks, while the 1053-Jammer was the only Asian to hit a good level during the morning here. These three diehards bailed out around 1325, wrapping up a fairly bizarre session.
1044 CRI Changzhou, China Japanese service at fair level around 1307; strange catch during anemic propagation
1053 Korean Jammer Good-level buzz of domestic splatter at 1317; best Asian signal of the morning
