V02

Bert Herald writes on 16 Nov:

"By almost total chance (dialing around) I have finally received my first spy station! I cross-referenced with the info on SpyNumbers.com, and it appears to be the Cuban station, Enigma ID M8. However, there are some differences. It was done in voice, not morse. Language was an automated-sounding Spanish voice (all numbers identical sounding). And it used an M8 frequency of 6797 kHz but at a time of 2200z. Any ideas? Is this a voice-version of M8 or something else?"

Congratulations with your first numbers log, Bert and welcome to Numbers R Us :-) I am sure that you know it by now, you have heard M08a's counterpart V02a.

A V02 log from Chris Smolinski triggered Mark Slaten's interest. Chris heard V02 at 2100 UTC at 6855 kHz on Thursday 11/11 and asks

"A new V2a sked?"

Marks responds to this question and says:

"This log caught my eye as you don't hear V02a much at that time of the day. So I decided to check it out the next day at the same time and freq. The sked was heard again, and is actually V02c. V02c has callups different from V02a and the traffic for V02c is not limited to the standard 150 group message that V02a and M8c tend to send. The callups are a 3/2 type call. Example being 888 16 or 252 166. Also, another curiosity is the fact that there is a distinct pause after every 10 groups in the message. The transmitters seem to be better than the transmitters used by V02a also. I have been following this sked ever since then and have found that it appears to be a daily sked. It also has an earlier transmission at 0900 and 1000 UTC. It is then repeated at 2000 and 2100 UTC. Freqs that I have recovered so far are: 6855, 7520, 7527, 7887 and 7975 kHz. The 2000/2100 UTC sked seems to favor 7887/6855 kHz. I have my chart just about half complete with the skeds. I will post very soon.
Anyone else out there that can listen and fill in the blanks, please do, and post them in the database. By the way, V02c usually has his AM carrier up about 10-15 minutes prior to broadcast. I have heard it even earlier. So he should be a pretty easy find when searching the freqs."
