I know some people who have came in to a forest at
one place but came out at another place that was very far away
from the place. They could not go so far by feet for the time.
It really was and I wish see you while you be told to these people
that it could not be.

Yes, somebody may smile and say
"crazy author." I could be done so, BUT... In
the middle of 80s at one evening I sent CQ on the 40 meters. Nobody
answered me. I went to my kitchen for a cup of tea. When I came
back in the shack I heard my CQ from the transceiver. Pirate,
had thought I. Again I sent CQ and through several minutes I had
heard my CQ coming back from my transceiver. Okey,
I retuned my transceiver from the being frequency to several kHz
apart, then wrote in the memory of my key my callcign
(it was UA9LCT) with random letters, stand key at maximum speed
and shot it into the Air. I fall from my chair when through several
minutes I had heard the same from my transceiver. The
phenomenon was lasted in the Air near 20 minutes... 73! Alexandr

... When I have read this article, I have remembered
one episode from my life. I just had received my first callsign
and then through a short time I had received QSLs with date that
was one year before I got my ham license. There were QSLs from
Canada and Yugoslavia.
At all QSLs my report was 599. I would like reminded
at first I had got 3- amateur category (at the USSR's qualification) that did not
allow me to make QSOs with these countries. What it was, mistakes
of the operators or something else?

I very often meet one- way propagation at 10 meters.
I have received (or only somebody has received my station) with
57- 59, but somebody (or me) hear nothing. QSOs were duplicated
via ICQ. I very often hear small LDE in 0,5-
2 second from Radio China at 19,
25 and 31 meters.

Sometimes when I have listening DX broadcasting station,
I mention, that time signals, that was transmitted by the stations
not correspond to my local time. Maybe the radio operators of
those stations turn the time signal directed of their own hand-
In the beginning
of 80s, when I lived in the Northern Caucasia,
I had received to my broadcast VHF receiver audio from TV that
was going to 2 hour before real TV broadcasting. So, I could
tell to my amused friends who was a winner in hockey or football. I can not
understand how I could have received such signals...

In July of this year (2006), I was sitting before my
transceiver and hearing the Air. Suddenly I heard: CQ 20, CQ 20,
Radio Papa Nine... Lots radio stations answered to the call,
a real pile- up. I could not understand nothing,
because radio station with RP9... were working in Russia only at May. It is special
callsign devoted to the Victory day
(9 May, 1945). The station
was working 10- 15 minutes, then go to
very deep QSB. I have understand, that in July I have heard special
station that worked at the May on Victory Days (but from which
year?)... At the time a noise was very high at the 20 meters...
September 19, 2006
I heard from somebody about strange phenomena that is occurred near 11 MHz. It looks like the
radio signals with spectrum 3- 4 kHz near
the frequency (11 MHz) was recorded during 15- 20 second and then
transmitted in reverse spectrum. Like tape recorder, record any
signal (ever noise) and then transmitted it in reverse...

I have some records (made by me) of LW broadcasting
with echo in some seconds. Real echo... I do not know how it can

I want to thank the author for the article... It is
very interesting theme. I would like to say what
was happened with me. On 1982 year I was served in the
Soviet Army, in a division located in Kemerovo region. I had chance to hear amateurs
bands at the Army. One time I had heard at 40 meters with strong
QSB CQ de UA4NAS (it was my callsign
at the times!!). I recognize my hand key, it was really me! I
heard that lots stations were calling UA4NAS but the strange UA4NAS
gave CQ and CQ like it did not hear anyone. I was very choked
by this. It was in real...

I decided to add some stuff from me. Some time ago
(may be 1- 2 years) I have got returned several my QSLs from Germany with
the mark "No the Callsign."
I checked the callsigns in databases from the internet. Really, there
are no these callsigns. I was very surprised
because I usually send my QSL (in Europe)
in two cases: or the correspondent ask
me about QSL either I reply to received QSL. So, I send the QSLs
on request of these stations. As you know, a pirate, as usual,
do not request for QSLs. I am on the Air very long time and I
never do mistakes when I receive a callsign of my correspondent...
