Strange MCW at 8100khz 1800utc
« on: December 05, 2009, 1811 UTC »
I've been listening to some apparently random letters transmitted in MCW on 8100 khz. After several minutes I heard SK three times and then: WMMUT  RWAUUUTAWG followed by more random letters.  Any ideas what this is?

From what you describe, it sure sounds like M8 to me, but get a second opinion.  It looks like the standard 3 msg format, just no joy for agent TWTRA.
