FAPSI update

Keyboard

To answer a question; the FAPSI [M42] stations are using the following letter/figure conversion:

Q W E R T Y U I O P
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

Example: group 'YPPYO' translates as: '60069'

RAU

Moscow sent various QSO messages to RAU during the last week of October. The message says that there is a morning transmission at 0810 UTC. I have never seen a log for this one nor do I know the frequency. Anyone???

  464646464646464646464646464646464646464646464646464646464   rau rau rau qso   rau rau rau qso   rau rau rau qso   fm 1/11 qso 0710 wrk qtr 0810       qso 1310 wrk qtr 1410   qru qru sk sk

FAPSI links, callsigns & frequencies update

I have updated the links, callsign and freq list of the FAPSI RTTY stations. Most of the callsigns without a link id are from the early days before link id's were used. Corrections and additions are most welcome.

All transmissions are in RTTY 50/75/100bd. CROWD36 is also a popular mode. Some stations have been logged using CROWD36 only, no 'normal' RTTY was noticed here. Call-ups and Ops chat is mostly in CW. Sometimes a 6-tone selcall system can be heard.

To answer a question about the nature of the transmissions: FAPSI is the organization responsible for encryption and transmission of all diplomatic, intelligence, and sometimes also military messages. This implies that the contents of the messages may consist of either diplo, intelligence or military stuff. Because you cannot tell who's messages are actually being transmitted, I prefer to call the stations 'FAPSI stations', rather than diplo/embassy/MFA/SVR/GRU or whatever.

  1. RCF is inactive. Callsign is replaced by many others
  2. U1K noted once. Probably not a callsign. In the past COY 851 was wkg TRO. This was before the time that links were introduced
  3. Location not confirmed
  4. Id or link most probably incorrect. RSZ's link id has always been 00099
  5. JSC has either been replaced by PSN, or may be the other side of the link. JSC hasn't been logged for quite a while
FREQUENCIES LOGGED IN 1999
