By chance, I came across a very unsteady slow morse signal on about 137 kHz
around 17.50 UT apparently sending random letters. The frequency was varying so
much on Argo, that I wasn't sure whether this was genuine CW. Didn't see a call
sign, but perhaps didn't watch long enough.
My first thought was that it might be an illegal use of the band to send coded
messages. It might be better to send a repeating clear text message especially
in the present climate.

I don't know if this is the same transmitter, but I have been copying G3JKV all
afternoon on 136.4 at rst 569, sending nothing but random letters with the
callsign, and not apparantly listening. G3KEV was calling CQ on top at one
Low power goes a long way!
I can detect no trace of MB7LF on 144.9976 using my collinear however, maybe
good sign for the weekend.
