UVB-76
« on: February 27, 2014, 1013 UTC »
Does anyone know what was going on with UVB-76 lately? I went on a few nights ago and found that there was a morse code being sent inbetween buzzes. Apparently the Mores code is "HUJ" which in Russian apparently means "Dick" or "Prick". Also I use SDR radio to use a reciever in Poland to hear UVB-76 and it used to pick up Uvb-76 ok but now it gets a very strong signal. Could they have moved the station to somewhere closer to Poland and could the Morse code message have been a test message?

Its on a different frequency. The CW "HUJ" is on 4628 not the buzzer frequency of 4625. It still might be somebody in Russia screwing with all the people who seem to devote their lives to monitoring this boring station. I would think if it was actually buzzer related it would be on the buzzers frequency.

btw  the buzzer is a number station? I would categorize it as a utility station.  just sayin'

The morse is not related. It's just another station that is on or next to that frequency

Hasn't there been a broadcast on that station before?
