Remember Woodpecker, meet Konteyner

Post by Blackolive » 13 Mar 2019, 14:27

It would appear the Russians are now operational with their new OTH radar, with the usual scant regard for Frequency allocations.

Is anyone aware of the situation with regards to reporting it, Im guessing it won't make a blind bit of difference ?

Well, you can report it, but will it even make its way to the Russian MoD, and even if it does, is it going to earn more than a groan from the guy in charge of that before it gets thrown into the bin?
Anyways, it's interesting that these technologies are still being developed, I've always been fascinated by the "number stations" and other mysterious radio signals.

Some interesting reading on this new system if you go dig it out of google. It always amazes me that they still require this kind of brute-force approach and Satellites can't provide what they need, with their global reach and everything. Still, I suppose it protects against a malicious attack on their satellites as a prelude to attack or even the issue of the Kessler Syndrome coming to pass.

for all complaints about this system, please write them on a postcard and put them straight in the bin, saving hard-working postal workers between here and Russia a lot of hassle for ultimately the same end.
