The Russian Woodpecker

Those of us on HF 20m during the 70s and 80s will remember the woodpecker. Sometimes is was S9+20++, other times it was just a nuisance. After the fall of the Soviet Union information started to appear on the WWW and we were amazed at the massive system the Russians had assembled.  contains oodles of info, including an audio clip of its QRMing capability.

This is a screen-capture of one of the arrays.

(sorry 'bout the long URL) has dozens of great shots of the hardware. Here's one.

Have Fun!
