UNID Wideband 6986.0 to 7002.0 kHz 00:00 UTC 21 JUNE 2022

I found a new piece of wideband nastiness this evening which sprawls from approx 6986 to 7002 kHz. The signal can also be observed on some of the WebSDRs, including the HFU.

0040 UTC I have this here also with an S8 signal. I believe this is Over the Horizon Radar, possibly of the Pluto 2 type, but could be Chinese.

indeed sounds nasty. Over the horizon radar possibly?  Sounds similar.

This is an OTHR, but not PLUTO 2.  PLUTO 2 does not go below 8000 kHz.

This is the Russian 29B6 Container radar.  The actual modulated width is fairly narrow, only about 14 kHz.  However, it is FMOP vs the FMCW of some other radars, so there is more splatter invovled.

29B6 started on that frequency, on 20 June, at about 2300z, and went off that freq at about 0220z, on 21 June.
