RE: [softrock40] Re: Strange Signals on 20 mtrs
- Just for the record, that's the PRC, not the ROC, doing the jamming - as
connoisseurs of the "dragon" OTH radar know, they are indeed bad at playing
by the rules. I don't know where the Sound of Hope transmitters are
located, but when we lived in Taiwan in the early 70's there was a
religious broadcast station right across the street, using what looked like
a TA-33. That irritated me no end, because all US hams in Taiwan had been
put off the air a couple of years earlier.
