Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 3-11

Big gun Asian signals showed some good energy from 1300-1400 here, but seemed to fizzle with increasing daylight. The NHK powerhouses on 594, 693 and 747 along with 972-HLCA reached very good levels from 1320-1400, and 603-HLSA managed one of its better sessions of the entire new year with brief fair peaks around 1338. Its 558-HLQH parallel also was stronger than usual (poor to fair) around the same time, while a presumed 738-BEL2 also managed fair peaks in and out of the San Francisco splatter in the predawn darkness. In contrast with yesterday the high band was relatively subdued, with only the regulars on 1566 and 1575 managing stable audio at times. Overall the session wasn't bad at all for March, although the complete lack of any sunrise enhancement after 1400 left signals floundering in mediocrity. By 1420 only paltry signals from 594, 693 and 972 were in evidence, with the more obscure TP's having bailed at the first sign of daylight.
