Military teaching Morse again

Morse code: A staple in the Navy IW toolkit

PENSACOLA, Fla. Ц The cryptologic technician (collection) (CTR) student cohort in the first revised Basic Manual Morse Trainer (BMMT) course wrapped up, Jan. 28, at the Center for Information Dominance (CID) Unit Corry Station.

Our enemies still use CW despite our abandonment of it.

Imagine that!

i suspect that was quite a surprise to some pentagon bean counter--

just like when they discovered the old soviets were still using vacuum tubes in modern aircraft--took an old guy to explain why<<smile>>

Looking for advice (W1DV - intermod

SKCC tech wizards:

Now that I have lived at my new QTH for a few months (22 acre horse farm), I am experiencing a problem that I had not experienced in my former QTH (which is 18 miles away).

New home is at a good RF location, good elevation and decent to excellent view to horizon in most all directions - but less than a mile from local AM broadcast station and I am getting serious overload and intermod on many (seems like most!) ham freqs especially noticed on 80M.

To you experts out there Ц any suggestions?

I have seen some pretty decent product reviews of the MFJ 1046 receiver pre-selector that say this helps but hesitate on spending $100 bucks until I am relatively assured itТll work.

Need to figure out how to install it with my Omni 7 also (obviously canТt run rf from xmtr through this).

Who else has had this problem and what did you do?

Sorry for wasted reflector bandwidth ... probably wise to respond direct ....

Many thanks / Dave / W1DV

Hello Dave,

I have a friend here in TC that has the same problem.

If you remember, please keep me in the loop of replies so I can pass them on to K8WPE.
Thanks, Jeff K9JP

Hi Dave & all, I checked for AM transmitters in your area, and found one on 1550 but it's low power 250W and daytime only.

It is on the other side of town at over 5 miles from your new QTH !

The suspect one is WRSB on 1310, the 3rd hrmonic is right in the 80M fone band, A HARMONIC AND NOT INTERMOD.

They operate with 5000 W with a 4 tower directional array aimed right at Rochester !

They are located 2.16 miles NorthEast of your farm !

You may want to send a note to the station attn: chief engineer and discribe the signal strength of their harmonic.

Good luck !

CW is Real Radio 73, John...K8JD
