I have heard a fast-pulsed "buzz" that occupies about 20 to 25 kHz of the 17 Meter band each of the last two days. Yesterday it was in the upper portion of the band and today it's between 18056 (below the band) to 18081. It is about S5 max. The buzz rate is somewhat lower than 60 Hz. I live in western South Carolina. Is anyone else hearing this or is this some kind of local QRM? There is some QSB, so I doubt it. I don't have a directional antenna, so I can't try to determine a direction. I've listened at the half frequency and one-third frequency so see if it's a harmonic, but there's no such interference around 9030 or 6020 kHz. What'cha think?

If it is good condx on 17 it is probably the NATO OHR on Cyprus trying to look for illegal immigrants into the European Union or something else... We hear it on a regular basis on 17 here in SM.
