Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 11-10


Gary DeBock
 

Although this morning's sunrise session was another total clunker there were some healthy Asian signals to be found overnight-- if someone was willing to try for them from 0900-1015 UTC.
 
At 0910 the first of the energetic Japanese big guns appeared as 747-JOIB reached a good level in the Portland splatter. About 30 minutes later both 594-JOAK and 774-JOUB did the same, and the other NHK big guns on 693 and 828 were in and out of the noise with weak audio. Korea seemed to have been overlooked in the Asian sunset propagation, though, as neither 972 nor 1566 had come up with audio by 1015. By 1410 all of these had fizzled down to weak carrier level, of course, and even the ghostly carriers didn't care much for the negative sunrise enhancement. Although big gun Japanese audio isn't exactly thrilling the chance to hear healthy Asian signals in this lackluster month made the bizarre early morning session somewhat interesting.
