Puyallup, WA TP's for 4-17

Gary DeBock

Hello All,
Asiatic conditions here this morning were similar to those reported by Dennis, with several "big gun" TP's managing to produce audio, although not at booming levels. The following were heard during a short listening session in the back yard, from 1248-1320 on the modified Tecsun PL-380 (and 7.5' PVC box loop):
 594- JOAK   Moderately strong with Japanese news at 1303
 666- JOBK   Unusually good signal around 1315 in KBOI splatter; best of the Japanese
 738-            Mix of two good carriers at 1305, from SW (Tahiti) and NW (probably Taiwan)
 747-JOIB     Decent audio at 1309, but didn't last for long
1134-KBS     In and out of Korean audio around 1307; no competition from Japan or China
1557-           Strong carrier (presumably Taiwan) here around 1313, but way too much KZIZ-1560
1566-HLAZ   Fair to good audio with religious program at 1258
1575-VOA    In and out of Asiatic-language audio from 1300-1320; no sign of AFN music
