    I'm seeing this from about 7050 to 7080. Given the bit of QSB it doesn't seem to be local But we do have an OTHR xmtr a couple miles away. They've never sounded anything like this.
    Audibly its just a big buzz anywhere you tune in that range.
    Anybody else hearing/seeing this? Its around S7-S8 on the 'meter'.

    This sounds and looks on my IC-7300 spectrum display a lot like the Russian "Kontayner" radar which has been recently put into active military service and written about as a nuisance ham band intruder.

    29B6 Konteyner Over The Horizon Radar (OTHR)

    First Russian Cutting-Edge Radar System Enters Combat Duty - Military

    It's the new Woodpecker.

    Will rig makers come up with a specialized filter for it?

    Will there be a New Woodpecker Hunting Club?? :D

    $H1T-can the Kontayner ??? :eek::rolleyes:
