    You know a 7.2 hit Haiti overnight, right?

    I do. The ARRL wants yet another handful of frequencies reserved for the earthquake, while the frequencies that are [still being?] reserved for the volcano "emergency" go completely unused.

    Are you talking about St Vincent? Thanks for pointing that out - I didn't know.

    Yessir, that's the one. What I find particularly funny/ironic is that the ARRL requests 7.150, which has pretty much been the home base of the Cuban Jam Machine, to be kept clear, while barely addressing the Cuban jamming since it began.

    I think IARU requested it, but I agree. It seems like either a way to shame the jammers to clear the area, or a way to 'fail' and have ammunition to take to the ITU or some other agency. I wish intrusion into the band was ammunition enough.

    Alain - I see 22:21 on the clock - I assume that was last night and local time not UTC?

    I saw at least 8 lines of jamming last night around midnight zulu. By 5AM here in Central time (10Z) I could only see four and it looked like 7150 was clear.

    How does the jamming look to you today?

    As an aside, I tried to use KIWISDR to locate the source of the 'parallel line' jamming mode just to be sure it was coming from where I expected it was coming from. I tried 4 stations (including the one in Orlando) and just got a partial waterfall and noise - as if the antennas were disconnected. There were no signals on the SDR at all - not even FT8. I've yet to get a decent location for anything using that system. Real antennas and real lines of bearing are so much more reliable.

    It was going pretty much all morning here on 7.150, until at least 3AM PDT. The SDRs put the location just north of Havana, in the ocean, so definitely Havana. I spun my beam that way as well, and it is definitely coming from that part of the world.

    That is actually the sound of a money printer going BRRR somewhere.

    The American Radio Relay League just sent a letter out to its members. For the Haiti earthquake disaster stating that 7150 was one of the primary frequencies to keep clear on 40. What a joke by the League and the IARU-R2 Area Emergency communicator

    Who is
    IARU-R2 Emergency Coordinator (EMCOR) from Cuba

    If ham were going to carry out any Health and Welfare traffic you certainly wouldn't want to use that frequency under current Jamming conditions.
