WOODPECKER: LE ANTENNE ABBANDONATE

Che ne è stato della della famigerata stazione utilizzata per fini spionistico militari e generatrice di forti QRM su tutte le bande di radiodiffusione denominata dagli appassionati di radio "Woodpecker ? Essendo situato nell'area di Chernobyl con l'economia sovietica al tracollo, l'impianto è stato distattivato nel 1989. Quello che resta è un ecomostro di dimensioni impressionanti, come potete vedere dalle fotografie pubblicate in questo post e tratte dal sito segnalato su alcune liste dal radioamatore brasiliano Anderson Colla PY1VHF di cui riportiamo il testo integrale dell'email:

I do! And now look of what has been left from one of thosestations' site (great pictures):http://www.artificialowl.net/2008/12/abandoned-giant-duga-3-system-antenna.html

Un cenno particolare merita questo sito che si occupa di tutti i manufatti umani, realizzati soprattuto per fini militari e successivamente abbandonati. Insomma un sito da visitare per riflettere su tante pazzie umane:

Le foto invece sono tratte da un sito ucraino, anch'esso molto interessante, che mostra gli effetti devastanti dell'esplosione e del conseguente fall out radioattivo della centrale nucleare di Chernobyl:

This gigantic antenna system called Duga-3 is located near Prypiat in the Chernobyl area.
It was built in the 70's as an early missile detection system (over-the-horizon radar system). It was also called the Steel Yard hence its distinctive appearance. The antenna was deactivated in 1989.

The Russian Woodpecker was a notorious Soviet signal that could be heard on the shortwave radio bands worldwide between July 1976 and December 1989. It sounded like a sharp, repetitive tapping noise, at 10 Hz, giving rise to the "Woodpecker" name. The random frequency disrupted legitimate broadcast, amateur radio, and utility transmissions and resulted in thousands of complaints by many countries worldwide.

Starting in 1976 a new and powerful radio signal was detected worldwide, and quickly dubbed the Woodpecker by amateur radio operators. Transmission power on some woodpecker transmitters was estimated to be as high as 10 MW EIRP. As well as disrupting shortwave amateur radio and broadcasting it could sometimes be heard over telephone circuits due to the strength of the signals. This led to a thriving industry of "Woodpecker filters" and noise blankers.
