Transpacific reception has been rare here this season. But this morning there were traces of signals from Japan before sunrise (1241 UTC).
594 JOAK? barely audible woman talking heard briefly at 1325.
774 JOUB poor signal at 1256, fading to barely audible by 1257. Faded out at 1258. Long pip of time signal heard at 1300, but nothing afterward.
Best wishes to all for a happy and more production new year in 2018.
