Title: 8.439MHz USB unident??
Post by: Looking-Glass on April 21, 2017, 0708 UTC
Have been picking up what appears to be Greek language, on 8.439MHz USB very brief voice transmissions, always starts with "Kompanyia....".  

Have noted both male and female voices.  The frequency is very active whilst the path to EU is in during my night and into early morning.

Possibly Greek military?  Maybe Cyprus? Maybe something to do with illegal immigrants arriving by sea to Greece?

Google has provided me with 8.439MHz being used by the Dutch navy but the voices I am hearing are not Dutch.

Any help appreciated. ??? ::)

These mystery stations have been active every night/morning my time on 8.439MHz USB.  Seem to think they are Greek, any one with thoughts on this? 

Not continuous so you may have to sit there on 8.439MHz for a few minutes but you will be rewarded!

Must be heard in other parts of the globe beside Australia. ::)

Checked it out from like 0740-0750 UTC but nothing coming in for me.  On 8436 USB, though, I get a faint signal but seems to be Spanish speaking.  Probably unrelated to what you're hearing.

I'll try to remember to check 0700 tomorrow.  Maybe I missed it.

They have disappeared, the last three nights/mornings there has been nothing on 8.439MHz USB, listened for 30 minutes last night and not a word uttered, thanks for looking...

Nothing again, sat on the frequency for about 40 minutes and zero, mystery unsolved, out of Europe, pointing at Greek language.  Maybe a secret military operation, people smuggling, drug smuggling, border control amongst many other possibilities... ::)

Looks like Russian UNID traffic has been monitored on this frequency as well:

R4002 & RST111:  Our mystery stations back on this morning my time from 2040z through to 2145z with only one operator heard, seems to be a base station, he was getting no replies, very brief calls every 10 minutes.  

Propagation was open to Europe with SVO Greece and TAH Turkey markers very strong a few Kilohertz down.

I managed to grab some words from his calls:  JohnTay, Sworlka, Pornio and all transmissions seem to end with "Apreeya".

Hope the above helps...

Update, also on this morning Sunday:  Lot of urgent calling with the call ending "preeyo preeyo?" Two stations heard but signals not all that good.
