Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 10-7

Gary DeBock

Like Dennis has reported it wasn't a stellar morning for Asians, but there were a few big gun TP's managing audio during sunrise enhancement here. With the exception of a fairly good signal from 1134-JOQR after the 1400 TOH it was the same Japanese and Korean regulars, though.

At my 1255 start time the 1566-N.K. Jammer was at a fair level (in and out) without HLAZ, providing a chance to record its 2-second-interval 700 Hz pulsing tone along with a higher frequency tone that pulses along with the lower tone. 1566-HLAZ itself waited until around 1320 to show up here at a weak level, by which time the jammer had already bailed (as usual). Dennis' Asians were down in the noise here until around 1350, when 594-JOAK, 972-HLCA, the 1053-Jammer and 1134-JOQR started coming out of the noise to reach fair peaks in and out. After the 1400 TOH the somewhat unusual 1134-JOQR made a modest run over Vancouver splatter to reach a fairly decent level with fast=paced Japanese. Yesterday's mystery language 738 station didn't appear again this morning, but after close investigation of yesterday's recording the "mystery language" was finally identified-- DU English from 738-2NR in Grafton. Australian signals are extremely rare here, and DU English shows up once in a blue moon, leading to the confusion. Last year three weak Australian stations showed up here in October, and it seems like the blue moon has reappeared one year later. This was the first reception of 738-2NR here; last October 594-3WV, 702-2BL and 828-3GI showed up at weak levels.

738  2NR   Grafton , Australia  (from yesterday)  DU English discussion of a wineglass during Teletalk program at 1404; first reception here in Puyallup

1134   JOQR   Tokyo, Japan   Fast-paced Japanese male-female conversation at 1402

1566   N.K. Jammer   All alone at fair level (in and out) without HLAZ at 1256; during peaks two different buzzing tones can be heard every two seconds (headphones recommended)  https://app.box.com/s/4z6y6dt2lorchwev5rqz4d94i5i0rxb0
