Monitoring Research - 7 MHz

 
The 7 MHz band is now quite congested in the post sunrise window here in Melbourne.
 
Much of this congestion is due to the huge  number of frequencies from transmitters of China Radio International, intended for saturation coverage in the primary target zone of Europe and the Middle East.
 
This is a summary of spectrum  occupancy on September 10, 2014 between 2000 and 2030.
