Just yesterday (March 17) a new and very nasty noise appeared on my
radio. It covers all bands from AM broadcast to 10 meters (and maybe
beyond). S9+40 in the AM setting, wiping out any hope of hearing anything,
anywhere. The interesting thing is that it's pretty steady on the HF bands
no matter where I turn my beam EXCEPT heading 255, which has a pronounced
null. I'm trying to determine the significance of that.
I made a 30 second recording. Where can I upload this thing to see if
anybody recognizes it as anything? The noise has not been 24/7. Earlier
this afternoon I'd hear, on 20 meter CW (though it would occur everywhere),
what sounded like a pop. The scope on my 756PROII would then show a single
spike. I'd then hear what sounds like weak crackling, followed by another
spike (sounds like a pop) in a different location on the scope. Cracking
would stop. Within a second the weak crackling would start again, another
spike, cracking stops.
I drove around and heard the same noise on the road near my house (100
yards away), but couldn't pinpoint it. I haven't shut off the breakers in
the house yet, though I realize that's something I should do.
Anyway, I forgot the location to upload the wav file, so I'd appreciate
info on that. Thanks!
