Issue 34
May 2006

Before we go into the newsletter proper PLondon must apologise for the email trace information and Army service number that inadvertantly appeared on the back cover of Issue 33. It referred to repeated harassment against a female made via the MoD email system; the matter placed in the hands of civilian police who issued a Harrassment Order against the perpetrator. Again, apologies for the accidental inclusion of this detail.

Once again, welcome all to Issue 34.

Our regular contributor base continues to grow with all our “Desks” & “Teams” gaining new members willing to assist in their running.

We are now receiving so very many logs that with this volume it is not possible to include all individually within the Newsletter.

Our aim is to try to create / prove schedules with confirmed observations, and print those logs necessary to substantiate those schedules, or allow the reader to construct their own versions from our text.

Please continue to send your logs, which are retained for further reference by E2k, even if not actually included verbatim in any of our publications.

Putting together a Newsletter of this complexity is very time consuming and readers will be interested to learn that PLondon has received several comments of 'information overload'; one such comment being made by a professional Signals Officer of good standing.

[How else could we provide the service our members expect. Ed]

As a direct result of more people becoming actively involved in E2k ALL members are receiving the benefit of our ability to provide :-

Do not forget that considerable information resources are provided on our group site, including:-

The Newsletters themselves are a reference work which is often overlooked, all back issues are available, and they probably give the answers to 99% of questions asked about number stations. You even have them indexed for you thanks to “mndbs”

This May issue, annually, is an important one as the effects on schedules / freqs of the “Summer” time changes are becoming more fully understood and the station details updated as necessary.

As these changes are not date consistent, many on 25 Mar with others on 1 Apl and 1 May it gives us a further opportunity to study possible origin/target implications for those stations who do not change to suit “local time” but remain on GMT.

M12 & E07 have provided some interesting timing anomalies.

Slavic Stations, M10, S10d, S17c have undergone their expected rotational freq changes from 1 May, refer to Chart 20 in Newsletter 20.

S11b, new designator is assigned, see entry, format is as E11b – please add to your Control Lists.

Now was E10 playing with E2k with its “goodnight” TX, following our ongoing detailed analysis, or was it pure coincidence – guess we’ll never know, but they certainly have a sense of humour.

Very nice catch by Jakub in the Czech Rep, see later.

Also more E10a “Strings” during Apl.

Improving conditions and rising SSN’s at end of Mar resulted in more M08a & V02a being heard on the East side of the “pond” although unfortunately this did not continue into Apl.

Morse is dead ?, article in last issue.

Some interesting comments received from Anon members following our article have included the information that such was the effectiveness of the Iraqi jamming stations & their operators during the “run up” to 1st Gulf war that the Allies had to hurriedly resort to using CW, and find suitably trained operators, to ensure reliable communications.

Ho Hum !
