RE: RS-12 interference -- maybe due to sporadic e?

No, the "interference" you are hearing is due to a NAVSAT on 
which RS-12 sits.  It operates fairly close to 145MHz and due 
to intermod with the incoming 145MHz uplink you will hear what 
sounds like dual-tones on the CW.  It does not effect the 
21MHz uplink.
