    Bill, Let's just get hypothetical for a minute.
    What would happen if your family were to be trapped in a foreign country without access to information because the current totalitarian regime has tapped all the phones and cuts your conversations midway. There is a current humanitarian crisis. The only reliable means of contact is over HF 40 meters because it is the only one still available on the island to a select group of people.
    One afternoon you start passing traffic and the frequency gets overwhelmed with signals and jams your communications. You move up and down the band and jammers keep popping up at different frequencies.
    What do you do when presented with this challenge Bill?

    Sooo, if someone else commits murder, that is permission for you to do so? ;)

    I was able to decode one of the jamming streams, and it decodes "We are from the government, and we are here to help."

    So if a kid steals a pack of gum from your store, you are free to shoot him?

    1. The jamming transmitters are not authorized (licensed) users. You have no requirement to avoid interfering with them, per FCC regs.

    2. The jammers will not bite! :) You may conduct any ordinary amateur operations in the same spectrum area.

    @K4KKC I am not trying to sound mean. Just want to point out that a lot of this is narrative warfare. (Cuba wants to control the narrative .) When hams talk to the Cuban folks over the radio that is the same thing as laying down a little fire. (in a narrative war) You would have to expect some return fire. In this case that return fire came as jamming. Not saying I wouldnt be talking to Cubans as more then likely I would be. But you have to expect them to take some counter measures.

    Perhaps an independent third party can intercede in this matter...say, oh...North Korea?
