Military stations

Russian, CIS, Ukrainian military SSB & CW stations (including M32)

Logs

I'd like to begin this section with a couple of logs and notes from Fritz.

"CIS Navy Morse message with specific first groups.

Messages from all HQs:

Messages to the HQs:

They are to be forwarded to RJH45, RJF41, RJH74, RJD38, RJE73 or RJE38. The status of these callsigns, which are used since years, still is not known; some are on the air sometimes."

Note:
"Strategic Flash Messages with several code words instructions broadcast nearly simultaneously over several Ny channels. Note the changed addressee in the second transmissions. This time the 0732z messages first has been disseminated at 0730z by a unid CIS TAC NET and RIT had to repeat the same message at 0736z because he made a mistake in the 1st 5FG ... (who told him??)"
