In addition to his LF logs, Trond also sends some questions about RJD99. If anyone can help, please send your comments to the mailing list.

"Some observations and questions regarding RJD99:

First time observation (at least at this end) of flash messages from the Russian High command to the recipient RJD99. Allthough it has been logged in traffic with others on HF, it seems that RJD99 is a rare call / ID. Here are all the info that are found on the web regarding radio traffic involving RJD99 (!):

4580.0 RAG43 0257 call for RJD99
4580.5 RBE99 - ..... RUS CISN CW CLG / WKG RJD99
"RBE99 812 N05 812 = FOR RJD99 89775 . . . ."
4619.5 RBE99 - ..... RUS [...] CW CLG/WKG RJD99
6971.5 RJD99 de RAS82 QSA? QTC K. RAS82 713 26 3 0000 713 = FOR RJD99 = 87150 15895 64187 ... 39454 03024 = RAS82 K. Probably naval air.
6971.5 Russian navy: RAS82 wkg RJD99

Some additional and most interesting info is found at Radioscanner.ru from November 2007:

So, RJD99 is broadcasting severe weather forecasts for the Belom More ( White Sea)

area to the collective address RMU. Who is then RMU ? Not a single entry found on the web for RMU radio wise. And who is then RJD99 as it obviously has the authority to address a collective naval entity ?

And one of the logs ( 6971.5 RJD99 de RAS82 ) suggest that RJD99 being a Russian naval air unit / facility. A source has told me that RJD99 actually might bee a naval meteorological facility. It could make sense as RJD99 obviously broadcasts weather forecasts. Ideas anyone regarding this ?

If the people behind the RJD99 loggings mentioned above read this, please reply, as I am curious to hear more detailed info when and where they logged RJD99 and if this station has been heard on other occasions as well."
