If the station was not in the Americas (i.e. ITU Region 2), it was legal. Plus, there are some 32 countries that have a footnote in the International Radio Regulations allowing non-amateur transmissions between 7000 and 7200kHz. As the band 7000 - 7200 kHz is Primary for the amateur service, if they get interference from amateurs, that's hard luck to them. From 7200 to 7300, the primary allocation for ITU Regions 1 and 3 is Broadcasting: 7300 to 7400 is Broadcasting as a Primary service world wide although again, a number of countries have footnotes allowing other services

You should count yourself lucky. In the early days (50 years ago) the 40 meter Novice CW band (7.100-7.150 MHz) was full of short wave AM broadcast stations. During the day, there wasn't much of a problem. But then, 40 meter propagation wasn't very good. But at night, all of those stations would come booming through. I thought it was a lot of fun, trying to work other stations, in between the broadcast stations. During a QSO, there was always someone singing in background, in some strange language. And their tones were modified by your offset frequency. A notch filter was a real plus, to help get rid of the heterodynes.

These days, most of those broadcast stations are gone. So the bands are pretty clear.

Dancing around radio stations was a lot of fun. So, like you said "Enjoy the radio waves....".

Yes!
Like maximum 100 watts DC-input, and crystal control so that you had to tune the band to find the frequency of whomever was responding to your CQ.   Wink

Had one "rock" for 40 mtrs, smack dab on a BC station. No internet back then had to find someone who had other rocks or buy new and that was a days pay for one rock. 75 watts max input too, tho I never got close to that power.

This wouldn't be connected to this post would it?

In the original post it looks like a case of receiver overload, with 'KTN it could be anything from aliens to fairies.

Probably China Radio International, 7210 khz, 2200-2357 UTC, Spanish to Europe and the Americas, 150KW transmitter in Albania.

Historically, 40m was 7-7.3 world wide. Got chopped to 7 - 7.15 in 1938 at Cairo for Regions 1 and 3 and down 7 -7.15 in Region 1 in 1947, then 7 - 7.1 at Geneva in 1959. As a result of the IARU lobbying, 7.1 - 7.2 was restored to Primary Amateur at the 2003 World Radio Conference although there are still rogue BC stations in the 7.1 - 7.2 segment and one of them was issued a frequency in that range last year by ACMA, the Australian licencing authority!" There are some 33 countries that have footnotes allowing non-amateur services in whole of 40m: although many of these services have Primary status within those countries, they have to put with any interference from amateur stations in other countries.

As a friend of mine in London, UK would say, "let's face it, sunshine, you've got previous".

One time I had a QSO on 40m cw,while a broadcast station was playing "Tell her about it " by Billy Joel.  I'll never forget that.     Wink Cheesy Grin

At the end of the day, the people defending and supporting amateur radio at the ITU  - which is where it matters internationally, as well as at Regional Telecommunications Organisations such as APT, CITEL, CEPT etc - are the IARU. They can only do that if amateurs support their national societies. You may not like ARRL, RSGB, DARC etc but without their support of IARU, there would be no voice for amateur radio at international level. Now you may say 'I am only interested in EMCOM, and only use VHF, so it doesn't concern me.' Until your EMCOM is wiped out by high power VHF satellites..... because the ITU has reallocated the bands and the US didn't get enough support to keep the ham bands clear....the FCC can have the ham bands clear for  intra US terrestrial services , but have no control over satellites once the ham bands have lost primary status at international level.

Your choice ... I'm old enough that having held my callsign for over 50 years, it's getting to the stage, especially with ill health, it doesn't really concern me, except for my desire to see amateur to flourish in the future. That's why I spent 13 years of vacation time going to Geneva to support amateur radio.....
