SDR recording catch. Tough copy here, so likely some errors in my copy. Someone having a bit of fun resurrecting the old KKN50 US State Department CW network.  Some reference info here http://www.spynumbers.com/KKN50.html

0359:
QCN(?) DE KKN50 KKN50 KKN50 CQ CQ CQ DE KKN50 KKN50 PSE K

0401:
CQ CQ CQ KKN39 KKN39 KKN39 CQ CQ CQ ...

0403:
CQ CQ CQ KKN50 KKN50...

0404 off.

I think we can leave this on this board, and it was likely a pirate. Thanks for the memories!  Any chance of a KKN50 or KKN39 eQSL?  ;D

LOL! And someone was running the "Bunny Number Code" on 6925.4 at times w/o a clue of govt. training use on 6925.5. No wonder news of those five number groups went worldwide in a week? I'm shocked those guys aren't rotting in Guantanamo for that one. The summer after 9/11 to boot. They were a pair of first class knot-heads.

D.M., if it's ever done again I'll see if the one guy will run the old Joe B. Hall /Denny Crum talk show. Those two took stupidity to a new level. They once did a remote show from a lodge in the eastern Sierra's above Death Valley. Joe B. was hoping they would see a moose before they headed back to Kentucky. Denny thought it would "Really be great!" What a pair!

Most times & frequencies posted are only an approximation.
Due to the insubstantiality of any “control list” its best avoided and never used.
