Puyallup, WA TP's for 4-4


Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,
 
After yesterday's unusual propagation to Korea here, this morning seemed equally mediocre to all Asian areas. It's tough to believe that nobody else has posted a TP report on the IRCA list today (I haven't received any here), but for those of you who slept in, you apparently didn't miss much.
 
1566-HLAZ and VOA-1575 had fair audio around 1325, and 1134 kHz had a fair mix of stations shortly thereafter (apparently JOQR and KBS). 1377-CNR1 was pretty anemic during the short listening period, and the 1476 kHz carrier barely registered a weak heterodyne on the modified ICF-2010. 1503-JOUK was down in the noise, rarely producing audio. No trace of any co-channels were observed on 1377 or 1575 kHz, and the low and mid-band "big guns" had a difficult time producing much audio. It was an easy decision to turn off everything around 1330, and wait for a better day :-)
