2155 UTC - Hearing R. Havana Cuba harmonic on 29130 kHz while transmitting on 9710 kHz. I noticed the signal of S5 on my panadapter and checked back to 9710 to verify the transmission.
Must be the 10 meter propagation ?

 The Department of Defense will host this year’s Armed Forces Day (AFD) Crossband Test, scheduled for May 14, 2022. This annual event is open to all licensed amateur radio operators and will not impact any public or private communications. For more than 50 years, military and amateur stations have taken part in this event,which is an interoperability exercise between hobbyist and government radio stations. Military stations will transmit on selected military frequencies and will announce the specific ARS frequencies monitored. All times are ZULU (Z), and all frequencies are Upper Side Band (USB) unless otherwise noted. The frequencies used for the test will not impact any public or private communications and will not stray outside the confines of the exercise.
The following stations will be making two-way radiotelephone contacts with stations in the ARS between the time periods listed on the frequencies listed in Kilohertz .... https://www.dodmars.org/mars-comex-information-website/armed-forces-day

For those who wish to document their contacts with a QSL card, go to https://www.usarmymars.org/events and view the left hand side bar, then scroll down to the Armed Forces Day QSL Card Request and click the title to complete the request form.

 Financial Times video story on how hobbyist WebSDR setups are being use to record Russian radio communications during the war on Ukraine. The FT story focuses on how open source contributors from all over the world are helping to monitor internet connected WebSDRs that are close enough to receive Russian radio communications and how volunteers are helping translate, confirm authenticity, and collect information about possible war crimes.

Utility / HAARP On The Air
« on: March 25, 2022, 2122 UTC »
The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) will be supporting the NASA Sounding Rockets Program Office (SRPO) Ion-Neutral during Active Aurora (INCAA) mission by providing an additional non-co-located ground-based sensor. HAARP will concurrently be conducting an HF ocean scatter experiment. Actual transmit days and times are highly variable based on real-time ionospheric conditions and the Poker Flat Research Range launch window. The following schedule is subject to change, and all transmissions will take place on 6.8 MHz.

General Radio Discussion / The Russian Woodpecker OTHR by KI6BDR
« on: February 21, 2022, 2239 UTC »
The story of this top secret place is one of mystery and intrigue. Now abandoned, a rusting testament to man’s cold war hubris, almost all popular accounts on the web are seriously flawed – victims of deliberate disinformation. Where did it come from? What did it do? Did it transmit? Did it receive? Was it the first of three, or the third of two?
Keith Snyder, KI6BDR, has been busy reverse engineering to uncover truth before time erases history. Keith shows visible engineering clues that reveal the mission and to correct the history of the huge “Duga 3” antenna Array. Keith Snyder (KI6BDR) currently works at Northrop Grumman as an antenna engineer at the Space Division located in Dulles Virginia. Keith has a BSEE degree from Ohio State University and studied antennas and electromagnetics from a well known ham operator Dr. John Kraus (W8JK). He has been working in the field of antennas since 1980. He has used computer codes for antenna analysis and design through out his career and is currently an expert user of FEKO for antenna design and scattering analysis.
