5818KHz CW
« on: September 19, 2019, 2357 UTC »
Came across a good fist of about 10wpm sending steady, evenly spaced, single letters, no numbers, for around five minutes at 1231z on 5.818MHz CW.

The transmission concluded with "K" but didn't hear any station respond. The report was a good 579.

I suspect this is Chinese military, looking back, a few years ago M89 was noted on this frequency sending the standard Roundslip.

Any ideas from our valued team at HFU? :)
