There's sunrise enhancement, and then there is sunrise enhancement. You're right about things fizzling out Gary, especially past 1500UT. Sunrise is at 1530UT here.

Just about the time the sun came up so did some pretty unusual DX, and it was in an out for another half hour. NHK1 on 1224, CNR6 on 1089, that sort of thing. Not quantity perhaps, but certainly quality. At times 1098 was the strongest overseas signal on the band with Chinese.


So, sometimes you have to stick around, or at least check the DX Fishbarrel while doing something else.

best wishes,

Nick

Hi Craig and All,


Unfortunately, sunrise enhancement seemed to be somewhat of a dud here. TP signals seemed to be scared off by the light, like in a bad vampire movie.


The Korean signals on 603 (S6), 657 (S9) and 972 (S7) that were so potent from 1200-1300 fizzled down to barely readable around 1430, and were long gone by 1500 here. 657 had a very strong run in the predawn darkness, though-- its best performance in about 2 years at this lackluster location.

Female vocal music at 1223 (around S6) https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/5uc0074bymj1dns92mnc3xfmgfq9re7v

Female and male tirades at 1235 (S7 to S9) https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/s4rsvo21bslch8bc9yfn3fs2mlvvm3yc

Female vocal music at 1254 (around S6) https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/8fdjlcgezovz7awn85ssdh5wds1jl30d


73 and Good DX,
