The new newsletter of the IARU Monitoring System (aka ‘Intruder Watch’) has just been published.
The most frequently reported intruders on the exclusive amateur radio service bands were in conjunction with the “Russian-Ukrainian radio war” (see below) as well as the daily emissions from the Russian OTHR (Over the Horizon Radar) “Contayner”.
“The Russian-Ukrainian radio war remained on a high escalation level in June. Almost every day we heard the massive spiteful and provocative broadcasts”, said Peter Jost, HB9CET, IARUMS R1 Coordinator a.I. “In June they used more frequencies than before, affecting our bands very hard. It is a great annoyance and a big shame!”
The IARU Monitoring System (Intruder watch) has little opportunity to stop this radio war itself. Only national authorities can hopefully do something against with international complaints. It is very important and very helpful that many other member societies also observe these frequencies and making complaints to their regulators! “We have to coordinate this well within IARU and act together. This is the only way we have a certain power”, said Peter, HB9CET.
