I received a note from Peter Thompson via Day Watson, editor of the Digital Review:

Peter Thompson emailed with the following late October saying

“I don't know what they are calling themselves now [Dept of State Comms], but I received the attached this morning on 16285 in ITA2 75/500. It looks like it's their schedule from Nov 1st."

S28

From a usually well informed source, I received interesting info about UVB-76 (not UZB-76) a.k.a. "The Buzzer".

The exact location is 40 km North-West of Moscow, half-way between Zelenograd and Solnechnogorsk. The facility is being operated by the army. It is a communications hub of the General Staff of the army (Uzel Svyazi Generalnogo Shtaba Armii). Earlier notes that state that this station belongs to the Strategic Missile Troops are said to be incorrect.

The transmitter is a 15 kW "Molniya". The station is using a horizontal multi-wire dipole ""VGDSh". The antenna farm is near the village of Lozhki.

According to my contact this channel is part of a network that transmits coded orders to military units, civil defence objects and recruitment centers ("Voyenkomaty"). The recruitment centers reportedly monitor UVB-76 around the clock.

See alse Newsletter 90 for more about S28, S30 and XSW.
