IARUMS R1 successful action
SuperDARN radar transmissions on 20m

Gaspar Miró, EA6AMM, IARUMS R1 Coordinator
02/08/2023

On April 13, 2023, Pekka, OH2BLU, the SRAL (Finland) IARU Monitoring System Coordinator, reported at 1119 UTC the reception of transmissions sent by a SuperDARN radar (SuperDARN: Super Dual Auroral Radar Network) on the 20 meters band, specifically on 14200 kHz CF: short bursts using an approximate bandwidth of about 4.5 kHz. In the following days, several IARUMS Region 1 volunteers also reported such transmissions.

These transmissions could also be observed during May 2023 on other frequencies in the 20 meters band too, due to the frequency hopping method that this radar often uses.

SuperDARN Radar bursts on the 20 m band, May 2023

Several members of the IARUMS R1 team worked actively in the identification of these transmissions, providing screenshots, audio recordings, IQ recordings and triangulations performed by TDoA through the KiwiSDR network

The IARUMS R1 coordinator, Gaspar, EA6AMM, contacted a SuperDARN network’s representative, who is also a North American licensed radio amateur operator, to inform him of the reception of the transmissions in the 20 meters band and to provide him with all the data collected about these transmissions.

SuperDARN Radar bursts on the 20 m band, May 2023

The SuperDARN Network representative actively cooperated with the IARU Monitoring System Region 1 in order to identify the signals, performing extensive research on all transmissions sent by all SuperDARN Network radars around the world.

On June 2023, after his research, he confirmed that the transmissions were indeed coming from a recently activated radar of the Network that was in the testing phase. He also conveyed the apologies of the entire SuperDARN community for those transmissions and communicated to his colleagues the ITU RR on the frequencies of the 20 m amateur radio band, which we provided to him, so that these transmissions would not be sent again in this frequency range in the future.

The IARU monitoring System Region 1 wishes to thank this SuperDARN Network representative for his cooperation and help, and appreciates the resolution of this case.

Clandestine radio station stops transmissions

Gaspar Miró, EA6AMM, IARUMS R1 Coordinator
28/01/2022

In December 2021 and January 2022, a clandestine radio station appeared on 3500 and 7000 kHz. The broadcasts were unusually in USB and could be heard throughout Europe. The radio program in Italian and English was directed against government COVID measures.

The IARUMS DARC Coordinator, Daniel Möller, DL3RTL, informed that the radio direction service unit of DARC Intruder Monitoring had been able to determine the approximate location of these transmissions, whereupon the DARC Intruder Monitoring cooperated with the German PTT (BNetzA) to have them stopped. The BNetzA was then able to work with their Italian colleagues to obtain measures that led to the stop of these transmissions.
