English man [E07]

Hans-Friedrich browsed thru the N&O logs to see if he could come up with a schedule for E07, and he did!

Here are the logs:

As you can see there's a fixed sked on Monday and Wednesday evening:

5107 Wed (122398) 2121 AM Sked 915 key 608 gc 46 (DR)
4559 Wed (122398) 2141 AM Sked 915 key 608 gc 46 (DR)

10774 Mon (051799) 2011 AM Sked 172 Null msg format (DR)

It seems that E07 has the same habit like V07 and XPH

Winter time: 2100 2120 2140 with msg
2100 2110 with Null msg
Summer time: 2000 2020 2040 with msg (?)
2000 2010 with Null msg

Change of Winter to Summer in April, not on last Sunday in March.

The last two digits aren't equal (07/59 in December, 67/59 in March, 82/89 in April, 78/74 in May), but the third digits of the frequencies determine the sked number (or the sked number determines the third digits):

9 9 8 9 9 82 12 1 78
5 1 07 5 1 66 5 2 67 8 1 89 10 7 74
4 5 59 6 4 5 59 9 2

Thanks a lot, Hans-Friedrich. This makes it again -VERY- clear why a numbers database is so important.

Unid English man

John Maky checks in with an interesting note. Here is report:

"At 0100 on 6867 I caught the tail end of a M14 broadcast. I checked back at 0130 to see if there would be a repeat, and on 6866 a LIVE OM in English with a Russian accent was repeating 989 then 271 271 38 38 and into 5FGx2. Pronounced Zero as Zee-o, Four as Foe-are, and Five as Fiiiive. Sometimes let several seconds go by between groups. Audio went down at 0041 with 271 271 38 38 00000.

At 0153, the carrier moved back up to 6867 again with tests - this time using the familiar YL "hermaphrodite" voice repeating 538 periodically. At 0200, YL in English repeating 538 538 538 00000 until 0003.

At 0220, a strange "burst" digital mode came up on the carrier which sends data streams for a few seconds"

Great log, John. This sounds a bit like the reports that we received a couple of months ago about English Man transmissions that were followed by a few words in CW and data bursts. Maybe it is the same station.
