    The band was super busy. I must have been caught in the between propagation between areas since there were a lot of folks talking over each other. Lots of Spanish speakers and English speakers on the same frequencies. A few times, it sounded like some of the other folks didn't appreciate it. It appears that a few folks were fighting on 7.193 or around there - someone was just broadcasting music and noise, and then someone else put out a CW on the same frequency with a lot of power, and just laid on it. Then they tried to transmit what sounded like SSTV as well.

    Later on, another fine gentlemen who I believe is a regular troublemaker was fighting with someone else on 7.200. I've heard him on there before. Basically being an A-hole, not identifying, etc. At one point (he's done this before from what I remember), he opens up his amp and starts to flood the frequencies with CW (looks like he's transmitting while changing frequencies back and forth).

    I've also noticed a few stations recently that are transmitting in LSB on 20M as well...SMH.

    40 is normally a daytime band.

    At night broadcasting stations are the norm.

    Sounds like our friend is back on 7.200 tonight....These aren't commercial broadcast stations, these are folks contaminating the airwaves with crap

    I'll continue my blissful, self-imposed imprisonment below 7125 Kc with CW-only.

    I get a laugh out of what I'm seeing - it's like the wild wild west....

    For those not amused, but rather disgusted by the shenanigans, read "Call to Action for Enforcement" in May 2018 QST's Correspondence column. Then do something about it besides posting on the forum.
