Monitoring System (IARUMS)

Napoli Radio on 14000 kHz disabled

The illlegal daily transmissions in AM from Naples on 14000 kHz have been finished. Someone from Naples has disturbed 14000 kHz in AM daily with BC-like emissions in the mornings and evenings. The Italian PTT has found out the source in Naples and stopped this nonsense. Many thanks to all involved Italian Hams, the German PTT (BNetzA) and the Italian PTT. Another success in saving our bands!

Spanish Fishery on Amateur Bands

Spanish fishermen are daily abusing 3500, 3510, 3550, 3590, 7000, 14000, 21000, 21222, 21395 kHz in USB,  various times. Often working with the voice scrambler “CRY 2001”. They only use private names, no ship names or idents. Talking to them is wasted time. They are reacting very bold and obscene. PSE use these QRGs for legal Amateur traffic!

Church Divine Service on 28 MHz

Church divine Service from Ireland has been observed on 28105 kHz (FM) in 2007.  The problem has been solved by the Irish amateurs and the Irish PTT. Now the Church Divine Service is back again with illegal transmissions on 28265 kHz in FM. We need your observations and reports!

Radio Kuwait on 7150 kHz and 7190 kHz quickly stopped

A “Combined Action” by  Uli DJ9KR led to the removal of Radio Kuwait on 7150 and 7190 kHz: From 12 to 19 April 2010 the broadcaster had been transmitting programs in Arabic language with up to S9+30dB signals blocking almost 20 kHz of the 40-m-Band. Many national coordinators had requested their telecoms. authorities to send “International Complaints” to the State of Kuwait. OM Faisal Al-Ajmi, 9K2RR rang up Radio Kuwait and asked for a frequency change.
