Unid stations

I copied the following unid station on 3 Dec. at 2120 UTC on 3963 kHz, ends at 2145 UTC.

Its origin is possibly the Ukraine.

A couple of unids from Igor:

M13 will probably repeat this message on 25 December.

Possible times and frequencies for January are 6885 kHz at 2300 UTC on Monday, Tuesday 8 and 9 January, and 22 and 23 January.

M04 / E23

During the past week a carrier was noted on the three M04 frequencies for 40 minutes, the time taken for a usual E23 transmission. Possibly they are going to use those slots for a voice transmission, or bring back M04. We'll wait an see.

M63

'A2A' is still very alive and kicking. The usual callup sessions at 0600 UTC can be heard on 4316//5058 kHz, while the out stations reply on 4169 kHz

M76

M76 is back on the air again on 3819 kHz at 0500 UTC and 1750 UTC. A few days after it came back it developed a chirp, which is still there. It makes it easier to find.

See also Newsletter 43.

Our Oldtimer found M51 on 5243.1 kHz, at 1213 UTC on 8 Dec. Altough it is not reported as often as before, the station is still pretty active.
