It was a pretty bizarre morning where sunrise enhancement seemed to finish off 
certain Chinese low band stations while giving a huge boost to 639-CNR1 (and a 
more modest boost to others). The Japanese also seemed to get somewhat of a 
daylight rejuvenation, although Asian propagation here bails much earlier than 
the salt-water-enhanced Victoria version.

The predawn darkness around 1330 seemed promising again with Chinese and Korean 
mixes on 603 and 657, and huge signals in and out from 972-HLCA. Daybreak 
around 1400 wiped out the Chinese on 603 and 657, though, and for a short time 
it seemed like the session might end up being a dud. Suddenly around 1405 the 
previously dead 639-CNR1 rose up out of the noise to reach a huge level, wiping 
out the last trace of domestic splatter on 640. The Chinese on 738 (presumably 
BEL2) and 756 also came into play, but with much more modest signals. The 
Koreans on 603 and 657 weren't much impressed with the sunrise propagation and 
bailed around 1415, and even 639-CNR1's potent signal didn't stick around for 
very long. 639, 738 and 756 all dwindled down to wispy traces by 1425 and 
bailed by 1430-- a pretty stark reminder of the watered-down version of sunrise 
enhancement at this lackluster location.
