QRM on 28.850 MHz

anyone else hearing the QRM on 28.850 +/-?

I hear two different transmitters sending a single tone back and forth to each other.

I only hear them when the band is open to europe for F2 propagation.

one transmitter is often s9+40 and the other s9+20.:mad:

I have tuned around and I can't hear anything on any freq that would have 28.850 as an odd harmonic.

They must have some pretty narrow beamwidth antennas to narrow it down to a single country the size of Iran at that distance. The gain on such a narrow antenna must be about 25dB. I want one for 20m.

that's why I worded it that way;),....

just repeating what was posted on another forum, strictly hear say on my part

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
