Emergency Action Messages

It happens regularly that USAF Emergency Action Messages (EAM) are reported as (unid) numbers stations. Many N&O readers seem to be interested in these messages and I was asked to include them in N&O. Well, ok but... I don't have the time to monitor the USAF stations for EAMs or Foxtrot messages. I'll be happy to include your logs though. Complete messages are of course welcome but the 6-character preamble is the minimum that I need. Also the addressee (when mentioned) is interesting. I have included a number of preambles, messages and addressees that were heard during the past couple of months:

Alex heard this one on 13200 kHz on 1-10 at 0802 UTC.

"All stations all stations, this is Andrews Andrews break.
FJAU7N stand by FJAU7N stand by FJAU7N stand by. Message follows.
FJAU7N 4M2ZLODSQYJMYKNQLNUO2G

FJAU7N 4M2ZLODSQYJMYKNQLNUO2G
