    Right around 2000 on the waterfall, 40Meter digital mode: there is a strong and constant signal. Anyone know what this is?

    Nobody? On their typical wages? I'm guessing "nobody" isn't an accurate estimation.

    I continue to see 1800 Hz wide bands at 7106, 7116, 7126, 7131, 7141, 7151, 7158, 7179, and 7216 LSB. It appears to be two parallel zones of noise about 800 Hz wide, but there are random periods that include sounds like "spastic tapping on an electric typewriter", to coin a technical term.

    Another day's report is filed with ARRL and IARU.

    Thanks - good to see the coverage!

    I want to point out that the gent from the ARRL did not respond accurately when he suggested that "There is no real role for ARRL..."

    Per the IARU region 2 monitoring program:
    The ARRL is the monitoring system coordinator for the United States. Specifically, the IARU notes that reports should be sent to both HQ and the IARU liaison: Rod Stafford, W6ROD

    For which digital modes on which frequency are you seeing this signal?

    Reliable sources have confirmed there are multiple sites on the island of Cuba where the noise is allegedly coming from. Operating conditions are 15KW transmitters using large Discone antennas like the one shown below. (image posted from the internet to protect source)

    I'm not seeing the jamming from EL09 today, but it is readable from an SDR in Orlando, FL. Is the band in horrible shape, or did the Cubans turn the power down on the noisemakers?

    ETA...getting Spanish language on 7120 LSB. It sounds to me like a Radio Havana rant - what is it, Spanish speakers? There were periods of this with music (voice and music) noted in the last 30 minutes as well.
