    I'm picking up the jamming here in Minnesota S5-S8 on 7120khz and other frequencies across the bottom of 40M, spaced at 10 khz. I've recorded them in .wav format so I can archive for future publication.

    Most of the frequencies that are commonly used South of the Keys in the Caribbean. It's not continuous it's on and off on some of those frequencies.
    But to start/ even the
    Coast Guard Global Maritime Distress and Safety System distress channel (8S) 8.291mhz USB/ the Coconut Telegraph Net on 4060/ 8170 mhz USB/ KPK on 8104 and Dozens of others on and off

    Maldito, gringo. ;)

    And now it appears we're in for a deluge of YouTube videos about this "Cuban jamming." Just what the (ham) world needs ...

    Well bringing awareness to an issue literally affecting ham radio bands.
    Yes, I believe ham radio may benefit from this.
    I will be posting a video soon, but it won't have advertisements, and I won't be asking for the usual garbage likes and subscribers and click bait title and thumbnail.
    I'm also not going to outright claim this is the Cuban government either, despite how that may help the video.
    Despite what some may think here, we're not all in it for views and clout. Some of us just want to help others.
    I'm purely making it to bring attention to this thread, and the interference on the 40m band. That way more operators can listen, and report their findings here, which can be used as collective evidence to get to the truth, and provide other information some may need to do something about it.

    It's pretty obvious some of this interference crap is also coming out of the North side of Venezuela especially on the maritime frequencies and they're doing a frequency changing.
    In Estimating power that they are using on most these frequencies, it is around 5000 Watt ERP. They don't need a lot of power to devastate North and South America on 40 meter. And Remember they're just trying to stop local traffic on those frequencies.

    I'll be monitoring this! Is there a place where the frequencies that are being jammed are listed?

    Moments ago, I was scanning around 40m and I heard very loud and very wideband jamming sounds from 7.100 MHz through 7.160 MHz, the noise had a lot of QSB, but was as strong as S9 + 20 into my QTH in Yuma, AZ. It sounds like a buzzing type noise.
