V02

Mark found out that V02 is using a new voice and writes on 10 Dec.:

"The new voice on the Cuban networks is now broadcasting at 1600z on 7975m. The callup is: A 82922 38802 01670. You should be able to pick up the repeat at 1700z on 8010m. Note, that she uses "0" as the last number in the third callup. Any ideas why?

I find her easier to understand than the old voice. She enunciates the numbers much clearer. At present the Cubans are using this voice sparingly. You might also check these skeds today, to see if they use the new M8a format also, plus another V2a later."

1800z 8097m MCW M8a
1900z 8097m MCW M8a
2000z 7887m AM V2a
2100z 6855m AM V2a
