Would it be bad form to use CW and call CQ CUBA over the jamming?
@KD2RDG Try it see what you get back and let us know here.
No. Just no.

What's the point of emcom or having diverse modes of communication if the only thing you can relay over a mayday is your antenna size or your country ham recipe?
Hamradio played a part in both Grenada and the falklands.
Thanks for that. And let me just correct up front, I miss-spoke on the Woodpecker. I know it was designed as over horizon radar but tangentially used for interference. It was a byproduct of trying to get the video out quickly.
I agree with all of the above, but want to clarify that internet access has been restored, but it was never down for folks using VPNs. I suspect the 'social media' blocks are also easy to circumvent with virtual private networks as well. It's easy to get used to tech and get complacent. That's why we should always practice our 'grid down' capability.
It looks like cutting the connection cost the regime as well as the people.
"In the case study, it shows that Cuba went offline for 32 hours, which affected 7 million users in the process."
I must be missing the regulation that says that governments are encouraged to jam anyone they think is possibly violating these rules.
thank you all the help is appreciate tnx 73 de W7HU
You didn't miss it, but Cuba isn't part of the ITU, so they give no cares.
