    Please don't misunderstand - This isn't about taking anyone's word for it - it's clear we're being jammed. I just want more hams to report the jamming.

    Please talk about it to your local hams on the repeater nets or anywhere you can share the information and lets give this situation the attention it deserves.

    I agree. Just as you keep a log of contacts. Keep a log of time and frequency that the jamming is occurring on. Then post it in a forum specifically for reporting jamming.
    Hfunderground has a spot where some are reporting the jamming.
    Much can be done. Just acknowledge that this is a frequency infringement. It has consequences for those that need to be able to communicate. What if you only had ham radio to communicate with your family. But you couldn’t contact them becaus a frequency was jammed.
    Each action is a step closer to it getting resolved more quickly.

    Exactly this. Whenever someone calls CQ on a Net freq, the OMs get their jimmies rustled and will be quick to run you off the frequency and complain about it even after the fact. But when almost the entire Extra portion of the band is jammed, no one talks about it or were expected to "find an open freq" and carry on. If we dont make our voices heard with the ARRL and FCC, whos to say they wont incorporate "use it or lose it" sometime the future?" " Hey remember when the extra portion was jammed and they didnt care? Lets just appropriate part of it for commercial." All hypothetical. Just trying to make a point.

    Give them an inch, and they'll take a mile. It only takes people not doing anything about it to proliferate it. Hide your head in the sand if you must. Others will not.

    They did shut down the Internet 5 days ago. Why would they bother jamming ham radio? Censor the last bastion of free speech. C'mon Dave...

    What planet are you on? That isn't how this works.

    The Cubans are not invading 40m. They aren't going to occupy it. They aren't going to install more and more jammers sets if we don't attempt to operate on jammed frequencies.

    Shakes head.

    Maybe it's a test run. Imagine "someone" jamming all the frequencies and turning our fun expensive equipment into boat anchors.
