This is coolbert:

First there was Duga. NOW we have Sunflower and Container?

Newly operational Russian over-the-horizon [OTH] radar Container..

"Container (29B6) radar . . . is the new generation of Russian over-the-horizon radar, providing long distance airspace monitoring and ballistic missile detection. The first radar, near Kovylkino, Mordovia, Russia, became operational in December 2013"

An image of the Container antenna array? Receiving or transmitting?

"Radar is capable to monitor airspace up to 100 km 60 miles] altitude and has range of 3000 km [1,800 miles]."

"Radar system consists of two separate antennas: transmitter and receiver. Receiver antenna array contains 144 antenna masts, each 34 m height . . . Transmitter antenna array has 36 varying configuration masts and is 440 m width."

"Radar signals were detected by some amateur radio operators in 9.2-19.745 MHz frequency band. Pulse repetition rate is 50 pulse per second, bandwidth about 14 kHz, frequency modulation on pulse (FMOP) is used . . . The received signal has a sound similar to the nicknamed Russian woodpecker, a Soviet early warning system radar Duga-3 operated from 1976 to 1989."

As with the Russian Woodpecker/Duga-3 Container also CAN and IS causing interference in the high-frequency band? Listen to what purports to be the new Russian OTH!
