20 Meters is being wiped out tonight (broadcast centered on 14.375 0500Z, January 5th, 2013).
Anybody know what it is wiping out 20 Meters as I speak? The broadcast started at 0500Z.
The AM broadcast is centered on 14.375 with huge hash spurs up and down every 50 Kc (with smaller hash spurs in between). I attached a link to a recording I just took below. The "every 50 Kc hash spurs" are 25 over 9 all up and down 14 MHz, not just our Ham band!
I have no idea what the hell it is, but it is peaking for me at 115-120 degrees from Colorado. And a HUGE PEAK it is at 40db+ over 9. A gal keeps reciting numbers in Spanish every minute or so and then every so often she reads a long string (I mean a looooong string) of numbers.
20 Meter Broadcast Transmission (numbers start at :40)
Thoughts? What, where, why?
If it's Cuba or Mexico, I'd hate to see their power bill for this multi-megawatt transmission....
UPDATED: 0655Z and it just stopped, just this very minute. Over, done, just like that. 2 friggin' hours of total and complete 14 MHz wipe out, swell.
