Morse stations

M40/M53

Last month I published the M40/M53 list that Igor sent me. It seems that I misimprented his e-mail. Forget what was published last month, folks. Here is the revised version. Thanks Igor!

Enigma code: M40 (ex M53)
Mode : Morse
Origin : North Korea
Schedules : 10620 kHz at 0800 and 2000 UTC. Audible in Europe.
  Lots of others noted in S.E.Asia (see hereafter)
Format : CQ XXX.YYY transmitted at the start only. When the message is repeated only the second group (after the dot) is transmitted: CQ YYY. XXX is probably the recipient and YYY the decode key.

Example:

vvv vvv vvv cq 747.343 cq 747.343 cq 747.343
hr hr 46 46 = = 71841 8t146 47834....... (46 fg)... ar ar

A2A [M63]

A2A is still on 5807 and 6763 at 0500 UTC. The out-stations are replying on 4753 kHz. A2A is also active with its normal callup sequence at 1100 UTC.

M76

M76 is still on the air, but not audible here in Western Europe. It was reported on 3293 kHz from Slovakia where the signal was very poor.

UNID station

Igor copied two unid morse stations on duplex frequency 13407 kHz, on 22-08-99, 0849 UTC. Speed: 60 wpm hand keyed. They used the following set of cut numbers: RWLGKSNATM. I guess that this is a military setup, Igor.
