Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 3-8 (Preliminary)

Thursday, March 08 2018

Craig was absolutely correct-- the TP's were pounding in with serious force this morning. The main star here was 738-BEL2, which managed its best signal of the year so far (good) around 1414. 603-China was also dominant over HLSA during sunrise enhancement, and 657-China managed to give the "booby prize" (Pyongyang) some welcome competition.

Overall the session seemed to favor the Japanese, though, and since 738-Taiwan typically does quite well when the Japanese get a boost, it sounded pretty energetic this morning. The strongest TP's here were 594-JOAK and 972-HLCA, however, with the latter hitting a thunderous level with Korean pop music at 1403. More results to follow...

738 BEL2 Penghu, Taiwan The usual Chinese female announcer giving the news in rapid fire speech at 1414; its best signal of the year so far https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/edqvryibbcam0gm8m4lnv2b3u2y1i8e4

972 HLCA Dangjin, S. Korea Female vocal music at a monster level at 1403; Chris Kadlec says this station's listeners are mainly older people-- maybe that's why this song sounds so good to me? :-) https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/h9cv3vt4of2kewss602e4x6frdpvf6ji

73 and Good DX,
