John and all,
There are apparently several stations. I heard a part of a call
"?A9??" on voice and at another time "/R" on CW on the 20:00Z
pass of AO-27 over the US. Someone else was complaining of
a strong unmodulated carrier for awhile. I guess I'll have to
set the computer up to start recording. I doubt it's malicious.
Hopefully it's just "I didn't know". But, as time passes, they
will perceive ownership of the frequency, of course.
