Transmission power on some woodpecker transmitters was estimated to be as high as 10 MW equivalent isotropically radiated power. If a group of ham radio fans in, say, Spain started calling the "West Austin Antenna Farm" in Texas the "Massachusetts Porcupine", that would not be sufficient reason for … Sometimes this would shift to 20 or even 40hz, but mostly it was at 10. However, because of its distinctive transmission pattern, many experts and amateur radio hobbyists quickly realized it to be an over-the-horizon radar system. This was followed by the prototype Duga, built on the same site, which was able to track launches from the far east and submarines in the Pacific Ocean as the missiles flew towards Novaya Zemlya.

I tended to hang out on the 15m band, 21.000 – 21.450, but I'd hear them most at the bottom end where Morse code operators were allocated. info), repeating at a rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, 24 hours per day. (By Necator – the English language Wikipedia (log), Public Domain). Someone decided (or heard) that it was pulse radar and decided the obvious way to overcome it was to transmit back at it with a similar pulse rate. Little is known about the power levels or Russian designation but it was probably a forerunner of the Duga radar systems. The signal became such a nuisance that some receivers used on amateur radio and television, began including 'Woodpecker Blankers' in their circuit designs, such as the Datong Model SRB2 Auto Woodpecker Blanker, in an effort to filter out the interference.[2]. It sounded like a sharp, repetitive tapping noise, at 10 Hz, giving rise to the “Woodpecker” name. The Russian Woodpecker Not an avian at all, the Russian Woodpecker was the vast, faceless and distant enemy of most of the users of shortwave radio in the Western World for eight or nine years, beginning in 1976.

Hardware-in-the-loop or digital twin: Use one, both, or neither? The most common rate was 10 Hz, while the 16 Hz and 20 Hz modes were rather rare. The interference was accordingly dubbed the Russian Woodpecker, as amateur radio enthusiasts quickly triangulated the source to an area in what was then the USSR (in the modern day this is in the “three-corners” region where Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia meet). At some point in 1976, a new and powerful radio signal was detected simultaneously worldwide, and quickly dubbed 'the Woodpecker' by amateur radio operators.

WA3YRE, Mar 5, 2019 #62. : Shadow of Chernobyl was inspired by theories that Duga-1 was used for mind control, it does not take the form of the real array. The broadcast jamming theory was discarded early on when a monitoring survey showed that Radio Moscow and other pro-Soviet stations were just as badly affected by woodpecker interference as Western stations. The signals it emanated was picked up by HAM operators world-wide, and was notorious for it's distinct 10Hz repetitive "tapping noise" - which shortwave-listeners later dubbed "The Russian Woodpecker" due to it's constant and familiar interference on radio-broadcasts. It’s doubtful, however, that the news heralds the return of interference on the level of that generated by the so-called “Russian Woodpecker” OTH radar, which plagued Amateur Radio HF bands in the 1970s and 1980s. Ham was defined as “a poor oprator”, also called a “plug”, in “The Telegraph Instructor” (1901) by George M. Dodge.

Duga is able to track launches from the Far East and from submarines in the Pacific Ocean, as the missiles fly towards Novaya Zemlya in the Arctic Ocean. Even from the earliest reports it was suspected that the signals were tests of an over-the-horizon radar,[5] and this remained the most popular hypothesis during the Cold War.

Another factor was the success of the US-KS early-warning satellites, which began entering service in the early 1980s, and by this time had grown into a complete network. The Duga systems were extremely powerful, over 10 MW in some[which?] This RADAR’s pulses were hopping between four broadcast time windows at four distinct frequencies: 16450, 16490, 16570 and 16390 kHz—one for each window. Operators who provide tours of Chernobyl and the surrounding areas are able to obtain the relevant paperwork. Although the reasons for the eventual shutdown of the Duga systems have not been made public, the changing strategic balance with the end of the Cold War in the late 1980s likely had a major part to play. They were only trying to do what the British /usa tried to do on Orford ness back in the 60's /70's. Kosolov, A.

It took a bit of time and ingenuity, but eventually jamming it became trivial. has a plot focused on the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and the nuclear accident there. So I wonder if the term “ham” was used not to refer to the interfering radio signals, but to the fact that some of those amateur radio people were new with Morse Code and they were sloppy at it. It was also speculated at that time, at least among radio amateurs, that this was an over-the-horizon radar.

It was the power and range of this system that was a ‘thorn in the side’ to all shortwave listeners and amateur and commercial HF operators worldwide. When a second Woodpecker appeared, this one located in eastern Russia but also pointed toward the US and covering blank spots in the first system's pattern, this conclusion became inescapable. The Duga radar is heavily featured in the virtual reality game Proze: Enlightenment, a suspense/puzzle game with the theory that the radar is being used by mind controlling experiments during the 1950-60s. Data analysis showed an inter-pulse period of about 90 ms, a frequency range of 7 to 19 MHz, a bandwidth of 0.02 to 0.8 MHz, and typical transmission time of 7 minutes.

It was pretty simple really: turn up the speed on your keyer until it sounded like the same pulse rate and transmit back. The Soviets had been working on early warning radar for their anti-ballistic missile systems through the 1960s, but most of these had been line-of-sight systems that were useful for rapid analysis and interception only.

These signals even made interference on 27 MHz CB radios in the late 60's and early 70's sometimes completely blocking even local communications in Portugal for example, leading to the supposition of several Megawatts of RF power transmission. This RADAR system was an early warning anti-ballistic missile radar system that was put into operation in late 1971—-based in Chernobyl. They appeared without warning, sounding like a sharp, repetitive tapping noise at 10 Hz repetition rate,[1] which led to it being nicknamed by shortwave listeners the Russian Woodpecker. [8] This sequence is usable for a 100 μs chirped pulse amplification system, giving a resolution of 15 km (10 mi) (the distance light travels in 50 μs).

Starting in the late 1980s, even as the FCC was publishing studies, the signals became less frequent, and in 1989, they disappeared altogether. Both of these radar systems were aimed east and were fairly low power, but with the concept proven, work began on an operational system.
