He sites a peer reviewed paper by C.S. Chen. I do not have access to the full article. The abstract clearly says "blue shift" and "red shift". Lyndon Ashmore's paper (page 2, left column, second paragraph) claims Chen's research shows no blue shift. That looks like a contradiction.

Well if he is writing about "tired light", I wouldn't take his writings too seriously because tired light is not a correct idea/theory
If red shift is called "tired" then blue shift would have to be "wakeful". No wonder those ideas have no credence these days.
 
Tired light in a static universe predicts a constant shift in wavelength - while what is observed are doppler shifts, change in wavelength increasing with wavelength...
