Russian HF radar in ham radio 20m band

The IARU Monitoring System reports on interference to the amateur radio 14 MHz band from the new Russian HF Over The Horizon Radar (OTHR) Container network

The Russian Forces website reports the Air and Space Defense Forces are deploying a network of over-the-horizon (OTH) radars, code-named "Kontainer". They say the first one began "experimental-combat" operations in Kovylkino, Mordovia on December 2, 2013. The radar is reported to have a range of about 3000 km, which allows it to detect aircraft over large part of Europe.

The International Amateur Radio Union Monitoring System (IARUMS) Region 1 July 2014 newsletter says the radar site at Nizhny Novgorod has been very active in the Primary 14 MHz amateur radio allocation, e.g. 14.128 MHz, and the 35 kHz wide signal has caused considerable interference.
