16103.0 --- Russian Mil, RUS 1320 USB OFDM 45-tone HDR modem 33.33Bd 62.5Hz DBPSK (15Sep15)
09098.6 FUG French Navy La Regine, F 1336 USB STANAG-4285 1200/S encrypted (14Sep15)
09270.8 --- French MIL Favières via Vernon, F 1308 USB ARQ-E 184.6Bd/850 no traffic (14Sep15)

during the last days, starting atbout 0700z, around 14200 KHz and 14500 KHz on USB was possible to hear OFDM 60-tone modems (aka CIS-60) running at the same time and in different frequencies, i.e. 14233.0, 14259.0 and 14285.0 KHz, and some other interesting signals as the MFSK-68 reported above in the log. The CIS-60 signals belong to the two known waveforms: 35.5 Bd π/8 DPSK-8 and 30Bd π/4 DQPSK (same channel separation,  44.44 Hz). You can also hear op. chats and sometimes quite long CIS-60 sessions consisting of not-modulated carriers followed by modulated carriers but w/out input data (idling). About the "parallel" emissions, I do not know if we face different transmission sites or different beamings/power, anyway, given that fading is not in all the CIS-60 frequencies, it's my guess that these should not be harmonics but just separate transmissions.
