Jamming and QRM Hams Behaving Badly 7200 kHz LSB 8 Nov 2017
« on: November 08, 2017, 1852 UTC »
7200 kHz LSB
7200 LSB
7.2 MHz 7.200 MHz LSB

Starting at around 1845 UTC, several recordings were heard on 7200 LSB, now hearing "Who Are You?" by The Who at 1852 UTC on 7200 kHz LSB.  This whole time, there's also been a carrier on 7200.0 kHz. 

Another waste of a frequency. 

1856 UTC - WD4JID  and another ham callsign heard talking over the music, then music went QRT
1857 UTC - music back, carrier on 7200 kHz has been going this whole time (has been on since tune-in)

I recall reading in ancient ham radio books that there used to be some group of official observers that would police the ham bands, and send notices to naughty hams caught doing horrible things, like going 11 minutes between IDs, etc. I assume they are all gone now, based on the current level of infractions on 7200, 14313, and elsewhere.

You might be looking at this the wrong way. Consider 313 and 200 as places for the ignorant to congregate with their fellows, leaving the rest of the bands alone. This is a good thing, if it must exist at all.

The same thing happens here in Australia, they call 40m "The Stonefish Band" and the gentlemens rules and regulations are thrown out of the window. 

It has became worse since they "dumbed" down the amateur radio licence (introduction of Foundation Licence) to make it easier for basic entry level operators and thus populate the bands.

40m has became a "Claytons" form of 27MHz CB radio with all sorts of jamming and unruly behaviour taking place.

Yaesu FT-2000D & Tecsun S-2000 to 310 feet of wire, and a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.
