M89

CHINESE MILITARY. Only two logs this month:

V MB3R MB3R MB3R DE YA6X YA6X on 8385 kHz  
DE MB3R MB3R V on 8385 kHz *)

*) Both were logged by Alf. The second log is a bit odd. Alf writes
"First time that I saw a modified V-marker of the Chinese Military Enigma M89. Last night (30-6) on 8385 kHz they send just "DE MB3R MB3R V". MB3R belongs to the pair "YA6X/MB3R". Some days before YA6X was one the same channel with the usual Enigma M89 calling marker "MB3R MB3R MB3R DE YA6X YA6X V". Usually only one callsign of the Enigma M89-callsign pair is on the "DE" side, this time I first saw a "DE" from the other partner?!? The marker last night did not look like garbled! Any comments from the spooks?"

The marker is automated. Maybe their system malfunctioned, Alf. (editor)
