Czech 2136

The Czech station on 2136 kHz seems to have a daily sked at 1745 UTC transmitting its normal routine message counting from 50-59 after a callup of 3 sets of 3 tones. <Steve Gunn>

Unid slavic station

AC copied an unid station. Comments anyone? Info wanted!

Freq: 5940 kHz, time: 1550 UTC, date: Sun 5 November
Transmission: FGs - null msg (?) read by a male. Off at 1550, carrier off 1600 UTC.

AC writes: "Just received the last couple of figures on a slavic language (definitely not Russian, Polish, or Rumanian), which sounded as a callup, and not 5FGs. Later I tried to identify the station, but could not find any records with this frequency. Czech and Slovak broadcasting stations are on a bit lower frequency. 5940 is usually quiet. Coincidence, that the Czech/Slovak broadcasting stations are near. Does it help the agent(s) to find the frequency on an analog radio?"

I have checked my files AC, but I cannot find anything either -Ary-
