I posted that so I'll take it upon myself to answer your question.  
Here in ECNA, PNG's and Indos are quite a challenge.  Back in about 
1988, myself, Dr. Harold Cones and Roland Archer and I were the ones 
to ferret out and prove out the ECNA path from PNG and Irian Jaya. 
Indeed, we co-authored an article in the first issue of Fine Tunings 
_Proceedings_ on that very subject.

Having said that, let me add that being able to hear a 90 or 60MB 
station an hour after sunrise is a bit on an anomoly.  I still don't 
have a resason with which I am confident which explains it.  It seems 
to be restricted to PNG's and a very few Indos (mostly stations in 
Irian Jaya).

I make such posts to provoke though and discussion on the matter as 
well as point to other reception possibilities that could be 
considered by others.
The 4.890 PNG outlet is no great difficulty here but daylight 
reception does point toward enhanced band conditions.  Knowledge of 
these band conditions may cause others such as yourself to take 
advantage of them to try for other, more difficult targets.
