Asian results here this morning were no better than those reported by Dennis or Nigel as the TP's seemed to be stuck in anemia. Even an earlier start time (1145 UTC) failed to produce any energetic Asians.
In total darkness around 1230 UTC several big guns (594-JOAK, 693-JOAB, 774-JOUB, 828-JOBB, 972-HLCA and the 1053-Jammer) did manage to come out of the noise at poor to fair levels, but none of them could maintain their strength for longer than a minute at a time. These were joined by a ghostly 603-HLCA and 738-BEL2 around 1300, neither of which stuck around for long. Any hope of a decent sunrise enhancement boost was quickly gone by 1310, although both 594-JOAK and the 1053-Jammer managed a few brief seconds of good audio around this time. 747-JOIB was the only Asian that seemed to benefit from the sunrise, reaching a temporary good level (in bad Portland splatter) around 1320. Overall it was another mediocre session, and fairly typical of the lackluster sunrise enhancement propagation all week long.
594 JOAK Tokyo, Japan Rapid fire Japanese conversation at an anemic level during "sunrise enhancement" around 1312
1053 Korean Jammer Temporary good-level buzz at 1305; best TP signal of a lackluster morning
