Re: CW of DSS???



Hey Tom...

I've heard those CW transmissions when my local cable system has had
problems.  They sound like transponder identifications, just like the fast
CW ID's one hears on police, fire and other public safety and commercial
repeaters.

I'm an active CW operator and would be glad to interpret these ID's if you
or anyone else captured them.

Any other theories...or facts from knowledgeable people?
