4517u, AF MARS net discussion of encrypted messages
« on: February 01, 2016, 0104 UTC »
At 00:53z happened upon  OLIVA 16-1000 transmission on 4517 usb of 8 character groups (copied below), followed by audio discussion of proper technique for the transmission of encrypted messages, and apologies by the sender for unspecified errors he had made in the preceding transmission. Emailed keys were mentioned.   One audio call copied in the net was AFF7MO.

The discussion is to resume next week.  An interesting listen, perhaps someone can identify the net on this frequency, MARS??

Lance, I have heard activity on that frequency before and I do believe that you heard an Army MARS net, they do tend to use Olivia as a digital mode and AAF7MO is a MARS call sign.

Thanks KF.
Finally caught back up with the net tonight at :0:10z, AF MARS id was copied along with several calls as AFF7MO took role call, and eulogized a lost member who was recognized for his service to our country.  These guys are very serious about what they do and adhere to strict protocol. Always an interesting Sunday evening listen.

MARS.
When you have advanced as far as you can go with amateur radio and get bored of it.
