RADIO INTRUDERS: RUSSIAN OVER THE HORIZON RETURNS WITH A VENGEANCE

Postby fastback65 » Thu Jan 23, 2014 5:42 am

Amateur Radio Newsline report number 1901 with a release
date of January 17, 2014 to follow in 5-4-3-2-1.


RADIO INTRUDERS: RUSSIAN OVER THE HORIZON RETURNS WITH A
VENGEANCE

The just released December 2013 issue of the IARU Region 1
Monitoring System electronic newsletter reports a new
Russian over-the-horizon radar signal has been heard loud
and clear in the 20 meter band.

Wolfgang Hadel, DK2OhM, is the International Amateur Radio
Union's Region One Monitoring Service Coordinator. He says
that this latest Over The Horizon radar signal was about 10
kilohertz wide when it was heard and recorded on 14.305 MHz.
And that it kind of sounded a lot like the infamous Russian
Woodpecker radar system of days gone bye:

But that's not the only place this new woodpecker-like
interference has been heard. Other reports say this latest
incarnation of the Russian Woodpecker has also shown up on
15 and 10 meters making a pest of itself on those bands as
well.

And if that were not enough, DK2OM says that another growing
problem out of Russia is the unchecked proliferation of
taxicabs being heard on 10 meter FM. While he did not post
any sound file of this one, he did put up a spectrum display
photo taken on December 15th. It shows 10 Meter Contest
activity between 28.0 and 28.55 MHz with many Russian
taxicabs operating narrowband F-M just above. All and all,
not a very good situation for hams living in Europe and
other near-by nations.

You can download and read the full DK2OM report in the
English language at [url]tinyurl.com/the-woodpecker-returns[/url]. The
document does require the free Adobe Acrobat or a similar
PDF reader program to display the text and photos. (IARUMS-

That's a bad thing, for sure. I can hear those Russian Taxi drivers on the loop here, sometimes. I hear many more truck drivers on 28.015 MC, though!
