Alberta TPs for 12 January 2018

Saturday, January 13 2018

Steve called it correctly this morning, as today was even better than
yesterday. This week has seen the best spell of Asian DX seen here all
season. The lower band was about the same as yesterday, but the upper
band was improved. The peak seemed to occur well before our 1517
sunrise, and indeed things were on the way down by 1430.

after that.

666 JOBK Osaka, JAPAN Time pips at 1300, then man in Japanese. This one
was not as good as yesterday.

reaching audio until 1325.
