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

82 Hz Since 0700 UTC on March 6, the Russian ELF transmitter Zevs has been on continuously with a carrier in between the messages. Strategic 3FG messages broadcasted "076"at 0940 UTC, "069" at 1428 UTC and "935" at 1748 UTC. The regular broadcast schedule with messages at 0900 UTC and 1800 UTC aborted. This type of operation by the Zevs transmitter was last observed during the Georgia invasion. (Copied by Trond)

The frequencies 10712 and 17088 carried also today a "non RDL" related printer running T600 aka Bee. Have any of you monitored these "Non RDL" Russian bcasts for a longer period of time ?? Did some work on these last winter, could be interesting to swap notes. (logged by Trond)
