After yesterday's complete clunker session Asian signals made a very weak recovery this morning, with all the anemic audio limited to the very high band. 1566-HLAZ and 1593-CRN1 both managed to come out of the noise prior to 1500, although they didn't stick around for very long.
A band check at 1420 revealed a totally comatose situation like yesterday, with no Asian audio or even carriers. It appeared that today might be another such clunker session until around 1450, when decent carriers started showing up on 1566 and 1593, and weak carriers on 972 and 1575. Just before 1500 the big gun 1566-HLAZ came out of the noise to reach a fair level very briefly, then quickly collapsed. 1593-CNR1 also reached fair audio at 1500 and was a little more persistent, fading in and out of the Seattle splatter with poor to fair peaks until around 1510. Both 972 and 1575 had weak carriers around this time but never reached audio level. The session was certainly a miserable one, but at least not as bad as yesterday's.
