Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 2-4


Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,
 
Asian conditions seemed to take a downhill slide this morning, with only limited action on the low band starting around 1500. There weren't very many vibrant signals, and even those didn't stick around for long.
 
At my 1430 start time the band sounded practically comatose, with only a few weak carriers on 594, 603 and 1566. Signals didn't improve much until 594-JOAK rose out of the noise with a few fair to good peaks around 1500, followed by 603 (presumed HLSA) in and out with poor-level pop music. Unlike yesterday 1566-HLAZ had no monster fade in, and struggled to stay in audio for most of sunrise enhancement. The collection of anemic Asians bailed early around 1520, failing to get any decent sunrise enhancement boost. Such was the story of a pretty mediocre morning.
 
594  JOAK   Tokyo, Japan   NHK news at a fair level with Japanese male announcer at 1503
 
73 and Good DX,
