Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 2-9
The high band featured some fair signals from several Asian regulars this morning, but without much of a sunrise enhancement boost. The low band never seemed to get untracked, and overall the session wasn't very inspiring.
At my 1430 start time only 1566-HLAZ was in audio, with fair peaks in and out. The low band had trouble managing any healthy carriers at all during the predawn darkness, although around 1445 some fair Japanese started showing up on 1503 (presumed JOUK), along with anemic Chinese from 1566-HLAZ and 1593-CNR1. 1575-VOA also had some fair peaks in and out with Asiatic language speech just after 1500, when the high band seemed to hit a modest peak. 972-HLAZ was the only middle band Asian to show up with audio (poor) around 1450, but it fizzled pretty quickly. Lack of any significant sunrise enhancement boost sent the die-hard Asians on 1503, 1566, 1575 and 1593 into the noise prematurely around 1515 here, ending a fairly lackluster session.
