spectrum scope, at the time I thought "what is that" ?? I got
distracted and didn't go down and listen, so we are on the Chinese radar,, ???

Amateur Radio Union Region 1 (IARU-R1)
Monitoring System (IARUMS) newsletter
reports a mysterious “foghorn” — a Chinese over-the-horizon (OTH) burst
radar — is operating in Amateur Radio bands.
“We observed the
mysterious foghorn on 7, 10, and 14 MHz,” the newsletter recounted.
“This is a Chinese OTH radar, which is often jumping, and sounding like
a foghorn.” The signal is frequency modulation on pulse (FMOP) with
66.66 sweeps-per-second bursts.
reported by the IARUMS include a Russian frequency-shift- keying (FSK)
signal from Kaliningrad on 7,193 kHz, and a Russian FSK signal on 7,193
kHz (50 baud, 200 Hz shift). German telecommunications authorities have
filed another complaint.
The latest IARUMS
newsletter also reports strong splatter from Radio France International
(RFI) on 7,205 kHz down to 7,186 kHz. The French REF has informed RFI
and French telecommunications authorities.
reported and the subjects of further complaints from German authorities
include Radio Hargeysa in Somaliland on 7,120.0 kHz; Radio Eritrea with
Ethiopian interference on 7,175.0 kHz; Radio Taiwan and a Chinese jammer
on 7,200.0 kHz, and a Radio Tajik harmonic (from 4765 kHz) on 14,295.0
kHz. source ARRL
