Seems to peak at abt 100 deg. from here near Atlanta..that would place it
nearer Savannah/Kings Bay.  Listened to it at 0030z, so signal had some QSB.
 Glad to hear the FCC is working on it.

I have had the carrier here also for about a week now, it is 60 over S-9 on
a TS-940 with a 3 Element Beam and seems to peak about 050 from me.  I am 
Located in Orange Park, Florida near Jacksonville.

Well, it's about 12:30 am local time, the band is dead, but the
carrier is there, peaking about S6. Like really strong scatter.
About the same strength as, say, WEWN or WYFR would be on 13 mHz

Whoever they are, I hereby claim first dibs on guest opping
Single Band 20m from their station.

A solid S9 to S9 plus 10 here in Johannesburg!  Peaking +- 330 degrees

Must be some xmitter, could here it most of the night.

K0PP's comments on his experience with the FCC's monitoring staff brings back
to mind a coupla experiences we've had here with our equivalent that folks
might find interesting:
 In the '88 or '89 ARRL 10m, suddenly there was an S9 wide band noise that
 blanketed the band.  Looking around for it, I eventually found a strong
 over-modulated AM carrier in our non-existant CB band which was playing
 music in Hindi & peaked in the direction of a nearby Sikh temple.  Upon
 calling the local radio authorities, all they wanted to do is chew me out
 for listening outside the band - technically a crime back then - rather
 than dealing with an illegal station that was interferring with a legal
 A coupla years ago, VS6WO noticed while beaming EU/AF & VS6WV noticed while
 beaming towards NA a peak to some wide band noise which blanketed a large
 part of 20m. Taking a spectrum analyzer to WV's, we determined that there
 was a spread spectrum transmitter operating on an island that is home to a
 military base.  The local authorities didn't seem to be too keen on dealing
 with their colonial masters, so at one point we almost wound up doing some
 helicopter-based DFing - courtesy of another VS6 who was with the RAF - to
 prove it.  Cross service rivalry to the rescue - the Army was running a
 data link to Nepal for handling traffic for their large contingent of
 Gurkha soldiers.  Eventually word got through & somebody figured out how to
 turn down the wick.
Back to 14001 - there's an article by VE3ONT in the Dec '95 issue of
Break-In, the NZART magazine on carriers around the bottom of 20m - with
details on this going back to mid-1993.  Wonder why we hadn't noticed it
