Results here seemed to be dramatically different from Victoria, with some 
pretty energetic Japanese big guns and 1566-HLAZ showing up from 1300-1350 but 
without any second-tier Asians along with them. Of course when they bailed 
around 1400 the action was over in this DU-dead zone. 

At 1300 there were already good signals in and out from the NHK big guns on 
594, 693, 747, 774 and 828, and 1566-HLAZ's Japanese service was also at a 
decent level. These big guns put on a pretty energetic show throughout most of 
the session but the usual second-tier regulars on 603, 657, 738 and 1134 stayed 
down in the noise. After HLAZ's Japanese service sign-off it was all an NHK big 
gun show, with 594-JOAK and 747-JOIB leading the pack at good strength around 
1350. With increasing daylight around 1400 there is usually some boost in the 
signals of 603-HLSA, 657-Pyongyang and 738-BEL2 here but none of them had any 
interest in showing up this morning. Overall it was a strange big-gun-only 
session, with the NHK signals strong enough to make it seem like they should 
have brought more weaker Asians along with them.
