Hi Gang,
 
I’ve taken a few casual readings on this signal from different headings here in CM97bf on my Elecraft P3 Panadapter.  
 
From what I’m seeing, the signal is strongest at approximately 120 degrees azimuth from my QTH.   I get the strongest signal – S5-6 – in that direction.   My 3L SteppIR has decent F/B performance, and I am getting a distinct null at 300 degs, pointed 180 degs away, and at 30 degs when the elements are perpendicular to 120 degs.  
 
I’m also seeing QSB on the signal and it sometimes drops to S3-4, but soon returns to an S5-6 level.  From this I conclude the signal is not local from here in the SF Bay Area.
 
My 120 deg line roughly follows the central valley, southwestern AZ, Northern Mexico, Central America and on to Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, Bolivia, etc.
 
Anyone else have a fix on this signal?
 
Many years ago, I was in a QSO with a fellow in NY State on Friday afternoon.    After he signed, I noticed his signal was still on – no modulation.   It was on all weekend.   I send him an email, and by Monday it was gone.   He explained he had left for the weekend and hadn’t noticed that his software was holding his rig in TX.  He was only running 5W, so his rig apparently showed no ill effects.

Re: 10 Meter Activity

I try to check 10m almost daily and I agree with Dan ...mostly hiss and noise :-(   ....

Guess you're getting something out there in AZ, but if I heard anything here in Illinois I'd be very surprised. Illinois probably has taxed propagation here and you won't hear anything unless you pay !

Well, I check out 10 meters daily (including CQ’s on ssb, psk) and not a thing but hissing noise and has been that way for months, other than the occasional big contests and then 10 meters seems to awaken!! Amazing how that works.  But after the contest, it is usually back to hissing noise.  I see so many others say the same thing from different parts of the country.  Where is all this supposed 10 meter activity anyway!!!

I have a hex beam, not quite the performance of your antenna but I get a definite peak at about 210° also at an S5 to S6 which, correlating with your observations, would seem to put the signal in northern Mexico.  This from grid square EN35hb in Minnesota.

I have heard everyone rave about WSPR and Skimming CW, FT8 & JT65.
But these guys still prevail after all these years.
Put out a simple CQ (CQ CQ de KA5DWI KA5DWI k) and we will post it if heard.
Also many of us announce on our transmissions that our ROBOT is turned on. Call us 3X3 and we will answer you.
Fall/Winter Es are off to a good start. I sure hope it continues.

 I havent received this signal yet up north hr. Keep watching
the waterfall for traces of it.
 We have a microwave oven that when plugged in and just sitting
there emits some horrendous rfi on 14071 khz. Its only plugged in
when we need to use it. I double checked each day to make
certain, no one was receiving it.
 Trying to pull my weight up north hr for what is worth.

If we are talking about the same thing I'm seeing an unmodulated carrier here in CT at 14.0719. It's very weak but always there. Noticed @ 8:50 am EDT.
Weird.

10 Meter Activity

K7DWI Art
 

You naysayers make me laugh 

While everyone is focused on easy QSOs (FT8 on 17 & 20M), no one except for a few dedicated PropNET operators continue to put out PSK31 packets on 10-Meters (Plus a couple of other bands).

The past few days, there has been a few openings (Fall/Winter Es). They occur for 1-4 hours, usually late morning to solar noon and again late afternoon into the evening.  The Eastern half has had good conditions and out west we really only had one good opening the past 3 days.  Again these are short lived and not great openings, but still better than nutin'.

Here is what the PropNET people have seen the last 3 days.

Re: IMD Meter FS on eHam.net

Paula K7PAX #1739
 

I also have one – I got one of the last production run units offered to club members. Because of it, I received a surprise “Good Operator” card from one of the observers. I consistently get clean signal reports. Well worth it in my humble opinion!

I have the IMD meter. For anyone whose primary mode of operation is PSK31 or PSK63, this is a very useful tool.

 

 Rather than relying on ALC settings or unreliable IMD readings from the receiving side of a QSO, the IMD meter measures the IMD of your PSK signal as it comes out of your antenna. There is no physical connection between the IMD meter and your radio. The meter has a wide band receiver that listens to your transmission and gives you a digital indication of the IMD. 

 

The meter is so sensitive that it will also measure the IMD of PSK signals from stations withing a few miles from the meter. 

 

The meter also has a RF strength setting that is useful for detecting unwanted noise sources if you install a battery.

There is a kk7uq IMD Meter listed for sale on eHam.net.  I know nothing about this particular unit nor the seller.  All I do know is that this really neat PSK meter is out of production and you very rarely see one advertised for sale.
