M12

Ken Maltz copied on various days "642" while listening to Kol Israel on 15615 kHz at 1900 UTC. The transmissions consisted of the "642" call + messages. Ken says that it uses a short zero (T).

According to Guy it is M12 with 642 642 642 1 for 2 minutes, 3416 75 3416 75, then 75 single groups, short zero, ends 000 000. Also on at 1920 on 14416 kHz and 1940 on 12215 kHz.

M51

The enthusiastic crowd that followed M51 a couple of years ago seems to have gone. Valeriano! Where are you? We haven't heard from you in ages!

M51 is still active, although I'm not sure if it is as active as in "the old days".

Logged this month on 2548, 4910, 5212.5, 5430 and 5869 kHz.
