Spurs or feathers I call it.
I know all of you have seen this many times.
This was a strong S-9+ signal.
Is it from the Radio,un-Linear amp, or Propagation from transmitting station?
Garbage in garbage out?
So if the radio was not in passband an amplifier would magnify this issue or not?
Improperly tuned HF amplifier create this on its own?
Looking for education for myself and others on this.
The key thing you can't (easily) see is what your own signal looks like on the band. You need full duplex and you need a sampler that feeds back a highly attenuated version of what's going up the feedline. That's the setup you need for predistortion equalization operation. Some day!
It's a myriad of problems, over drive, poor tuning, too much compression etc
But the panadater sees all :)
Said VK was suggesting it was my receiver or how strong he was - funny how his companion VK's around him were straight sided and clean!
The pandapter tells no lies :)
As for the example above I'd bet without a doubt that if I was close in to that signal it would be splattering all over the band
