Iranian Radar on Ten Meters

If you can't hear anyone on 10 meters, you can apparently blame Iran. Well, actually, it's the solar cycle, but the ARRL Letter is reporting that various Iranian radar transmitters were operating on the band throughout the month of May. The International Amateur Radio Union's Region 1 Monitoring System says strong, long-duration radar signals originating from Iran were heard daily on 28.860 MHz, with other signals using frequency-hopping techniques and appearing on various frequencies.
