S32 Squeaky wheel

Rimantas send me a couple of notes about the Squeaky Wheel. Much appreciated my friend.

On 27-06 at 0325 UTC he heard a live voice message in Russian on 3828 kHz USB, sending 3FGs. The format is similar to the messages transmitted by "the Pip".

The Squeaky Wheel is a Russian military station similar to "UVB-76" (4625 kHz near Moscow-Povarovo), "Plavets-41" and its "R" marker(4325.9 // 5465.9 kHz near Yekaterinburg) and "the Pip" (3756 (day) and 5448 kHz (night) near Rostov/Don).

The location is still not known but probably in the NW part of Russia.

The summer schedule of S32 is:

0335 - 1725 UTC 5473 kHz USB (+1.85 kHz)
1725 - 0335 UTC 3828 kHz USB (+1.85 kHz)

Transmission content:

The following transmission was heard by Rimantas on 15 July at 1835 UTC on 3828 kHz. The message was read by a lady in Russian.

"Ya - Riabina. Dlia: 503, 544, 515, 524, 285, 287, 288, 513. Kak slyshno? Kak slyshno? Priyom". (repeated 3x)

Translation:

"I am Riabina (Rowan). For: 503, 544, 515, 524, 285, 287, 288, 518. How do you read me? How do you read me? Over".
