Voice stations

French woman [V23]

Brian Martlew discovered a new station that uses the same format as the Russian Man family. She was only on the air for a week. I wonder what the purpose was. Was this a live training for a new agent in a French speaking country or a special mission? Has anyone in a French speaking country heard of anything that could be related to this station? Brian's RealAudio file can be downloaded from the N&O home page.

The station used the following schedules:

0900 UTC Mo We Fr 15840 kHz
0900 UTC Tu Th Sa 10635 kHz
1900 UTC Mo We Fr 11060 kHz
1900 UTC Tu Th Sa 10635 kHz
Mode AM
Operator YL
Language French
Id's 362

Format:

362 362 362 (4 minutes)
499 499
91 91

91 5-figure groups, each repeated

Pip [XX]

Rimantas copied another voice transmission from 'the pip'
July 25, 22:16 UTC, Enigma "XX", 3757 kHz, YL voice message in Russian:
"For: 796, 610, 604, 461, 661, 206. How can you read me? Reception."

Repeated 4 times. It seems that 22:10-22:20 UTC is a standard daily message time.

Rimantas, I think that in this context 'over' is a better translation for 'priyom' than 'reception'. Just like the NATO military uses 'over' at the end of transmissions, 'priyom' is used the same way.
