We get this on UO-14 as well.  Actually, most of the traffic seems to be
from those VHF cordless phones, because it has a sound like people talking
on the phone - that relaxed, continuing conversation, rather than a ham
monologue or the short, sharp overs of a commercial or emergency service.

Unfortunatelty, I don't understand Asian languages, so have to make a few
educated guesses.

Let's say it's a downright pain - makes UO-14 unusable when it's too far to
the north-west, unless you have an AO-10 class station to power over the
thousands of carriers. :-(
