Re: Steerable antenna anyone?

Kriss Kliegle KA1GJU
 

The SteppIR's confirm it's East of my location in NH. I pulled out my active magnetic loop antenna and it appears to be emanating from ~060 degrees. I could hear it on Simon's server at an S9, but not sure what direction his loop is aiming.
It's been jumping around the 17/16M band... Here's a comparison (hard to do with two totally different antennas) of the noise. My QTH on left, Simon's on the right:

Simon, have you received you’s?

Mine came the other day.  Pretty quick delivery from Russia to US (20 days).

It’s a pretty cool little receiver and works better than expected.
I have updated to the latest version.

The receiver seems good when connected to my normal antenna, I am not seeing any overload and I don’t see any FM images.  Sensitivity seems good.  There are a lot of options to tune the display.  After playing with the controls foe a while I got a feel for how they work and I can tune the display how I like it.

The user interface is... interesting.
The interface is unusual, and it makes makes sense.  Like any radio, it really needs a tuning knob.

I am ready to test once you have an image ready ;-)
Thanks!

Like Mag loop Simon I find such on all HF bands - seems to follow the MUF and propagation.
Has recently been 100kHz wide centered on 28.0MHz. They seem to avoid the heavily populated FT8 frequencies.
My bet is Chinese over the horizon radar.

It’s not local, it appears for an hour or so in the AM and is heard on my server network both here at my QTH (KA1GJU Super Stations #1-4) and 13 miles away at our local radio clubhouse (KA1GJU@PCARC).
If it wasn’t raining horizontally this AM I could have got a NE or SW bead on it via my Steppir’s and IC-7300. My beam fixed to the south on Super Station #4 had it rather weak compared to all my other EFW servers. Tells me it’s either East or West of NH. That’s all we know for now… I think. 

Weather tomorrow is supposed to be good, will hike out to shop and check

If you have not tried killing your main power or one breaker at a time then it  would be worthwhile.  I fought interference for a few years and finally tracked it down to a cordless phone charger in another room.  As soon as I unplugged it the spectrum was good again.
Good luck

Mag loop Simon
 

Hi

Thats everywhere..

160-17 maybe higher.

Some just stays there 24/7 some randomly changes frequency..

Thoughts are.).been discussed here i think)
A over horizon radar
B new commercial data for stock exchange’s..

Whatever it is has no regard for the likes of us.it often is on 80m..40m 160m etc..
Atleast it a good indication of when bands are good..not that helps really.

I tried the Kiwi SDR TDoa, but it appears very few have decent antennas attached. The plot would give widely different 
locations with every run. Time to hike up to shop and do an A/B test with the SteppIR's.

Steerable antenna anyone?

Kriss Kliegle KA1GJU
 

Anybody got a direction of the source of QRM on 17m in the AM here in USA?
My beams are fixed due to the tower tops occupied with VHF/UHF repeater antennas.

I usually operate in the upper portion of 17m. 😡🤬

Hi,

 

FWIW I’m going to run some tests with my server to see if I can deliberately force this problem.

I'm not the only server that's jacked, too bad ARRL_Noise_1 doesn't have  valid callsign associated with it.
Driving to reset KA1GJU@PCARC soon. 😡🤬🤬

Gl;ad that you found the source of the log on.  I'm off in a couple of weeks to a KU (actually Kansas State) football game and thought that I might drop by there and knock on doors for you.  Looks like a small town and someone should know who the hams and nerds are!  Good luck.  N0UU

Don,

Thank you for the information.

The examples here:
https://www.rtl-sdr.com/kiwisdr-tdoa-direction-finding-now-freely-available-for-public-use/
appear to indicate that the KIWISDR does a decent job of locating
transmitters, and it can apparently be done on-line! Cool!

Best regards,

I experienced the same issue as you and believe it is related to signing up for one of their free accounts to list all my computers.  I am presently trying TeamViewer without an account.  Now, I maintain a LibreOffice document with IDs and passwords for TeamViewer.  So far so good.  Windows Remote Desktop works well, but I find TeamViewer to be the best remote desktop application available.  Use really hard passwords!

And there is Windows Remote Desktop. I have used that for over 10 years and love it for controlling my observatory PC while inside on cold nights.
