Only one oddity this month:

4360 // 5339 kHz, 2110 UTC, 3 Feb.: CIOA2M2C4 till 2115 UTC, then into CIO and 46 groups message. CIO repeated the 46 groups message 3x but went of the air in the middle of the 3rd repeat at 2155 UTC.

S04

Gertjan heard S04 on Mon 11 Feb at 2245 UTC on 3373 kHz. The signal was very weak.

See also Newsletter 71.

S06

I received a note without a date or time with a log of the Russian Man on 7070 kHz with a "731 00000" message.

S11a

S11a is still active and was logged on 4 Feb at 0800 UTC on 8186 kHz with a 976/76 message. Leif copied them on 12 Feb at 0950 UTC on 11100 kHz.

S17

CR checks in with a note about S17. He says "A new one for me today, never heard it before." He copied S17 on Thursday, 21 Feb. at 1100 UTC on 7809 kHz with "770 770 770 40416 40416 40416" repeated for 5 minutes.

V02

Dave Payne heard his first numbers station on 21 Feb at 0510 UTC on 8085 kHz. He found our Cuban friend V02 in progress and heard a new one at 0600 UTC.

Welcome to the intriguing world of numbers and oddities, Dave!

Unid

Igor sent me a very curious log from a couple of years ago. He copied the station on 10 December 1998 at 1030 UTC on 8165 kHz. The station transmits a unique combination of letters and figures, read by a lady in English. But the most unusual thing about the station is the way they spell the letters. "IN" is not spelled as "India November" but just plain "I" "N". There is a sound file of the transmission on the N&O home page.

I think that it is some sort of training station, but that is just a guess of course. If you have any info about this odd station we'd like to hear from you.

Polish military/intelligence

If you are going to Warsaw, be sure to take your VHF radio with you. The "Vistula Army Brigade" base uses 166.050, 166.100, 166.175, 166.225 and 166.350 MHz.

The same base houses part of the "Grom" special forces, BOR HQ (the Secret Service), and Civil Defense HQ.

Here are some of the codes for radio checks: 555, 666, 222.

A 555 report is a status report. The guard has to respond on the 555 request. If everything is ok, he will answer "NNN reports 666". If the situation is critical the answer will be "NNN reports 222". Read for "NNN" the callsign of the guard.

Czech military

Various Czech military stations are using 9090 kHz. There seems to be a fixed schedule for at least two broadcasts, namely at 0700 and 1300 UTC.

The control station reads out mixed 5LG and 5FG messages. Sometimes one of the receiving stations come up and asks for a repeat of the message, like this:

Ovary 43 zde Tiha 37 rozumim 204 prijem.
Ovary 43 zde Tiha 37 opakujte mi telegram cislo 205 prijem.

Translation:

Ovary 43 here is Tiha 37 roger 204 over.
Ovary 43 here is Tiha 37 repeat telegramm number 205 for me - over.

The following (military) alphabet is being used:
Adam, Bozena, Cyril, David, Emil, Frantisek, Gustav, Helena, Ivan, Josef, Karel, Ludvi'k, Marie, Neruda, Otakar, Petr, Quido, Rudolf, Svatopluk, Toma's, Urban, Va'clav, Dvojite've, Xaver, Ypsilon, Zuzana
