Russian radar stations, ships and fishing boats are apparently finding homes on the HF ham bands. According to the ARRL Letter, the International Amateur Radio Union's Region 1 Monitoring Service reports several intrusions during September, most apparently from Russian sources.
These include on over-the-horizon coastal radar system, two Russian ships in
the Mediterranean sending digital traffic on 7110 kHz, and a military system
all on 40 meters. In addition, Russian fishing boats were monitored on various
frequencies in the 80, 40 and 20-meter bands.
