According to this doc, the command net structure I considered to be via hf might be a geostationary satcomms system rather than terrestrial;

Similar to our fleetsats, afsatcom, and follow on geos. The ruskiis also have leo sats that perform store and forward messaging

Lots of weak/unreadable cw for a time, then settles into a 4 second dash every 25 secs till los an hour or more later, think last time this dash every 25 secs took place they were testing a missile so mebbe another test launch.

same as above ongoing @ 1600Z 15SEP22

They're possibly testing their humanitarian nuclear armed and nuclear powered cruise missile, Burevestnik,  you know the one that covers the ground it flies over with, oh, I dunno, cobalt 60 or whatever. Their track record's not so good right now as a previous test blew up on the launch pad making geiger counters in the eu angry.

Or mebbe one of these as they can be launched by naval aircraft;

Ukraine found one intact, it likely ended up at some cia lab along with all the other cool doodads Russia leaves behind.

A kind soul sent me a recording of a 22m fsk interloper. The signal is CIS 36/50 in this case, with hand sent cw opchat (operator chatter where the radiomen coordinate the setup and takedown of the link in hand sent fsk cw) interspersed with messages.
https://www.sigidwiki.com/wiki/CIS-36-50
The recipient is RDL, or all strategic ie nuclear forces of the Russian federation. This signal is simulkeyed from vlf to vhf on many different freqs so a unit can find the best propagating signal or signals to decode. They don't care where they set up a link, could be HAM bands, could be ISM, stronk soviet signals to all!


What they are doing with these simulkeyed transmissions is fleet broadcast, where there is a constant message stream from HQ to afloat units. Their land based nukes can also tune in. Just like our subs have a buoy packed with antennae and electronics tethered to the sub that cruises along just under the surface where it can pick up our fleet broadcast (USN/NATO uses fsk 50Bd) that keep a constant watch on the broadcast, so does Russia. There are two distinct simulkey nets used by Russia where kremlin directly communicates with afloat units, subverting/bypassing lower commands such as Navy HQ. There are also multiple Russian Navy HQ broadcasts on hf too, from each respective HQ; Vladivistok, Murmansk, Astrakhan, Kaliningrad, etc.

I have a few ideas as to why there are two national command/Kremlin simulkey nets. One is reliability, if one net goes down they still have another at least for a while. Perhaps one net is Russian Navy HQ while the other is direct Kremlin link. Perhaps one is for ssns while the other for ssns. It's fun to consider solutions to the problem.

13558 kHz, RDL has been very active today at 1215z and afterwards with RTTY and FSK CW "RDL RDL" followed by six 5-number group and on/off short RTTY transmissions.

Nice logs gents, 13558 Kaliningrad is just now (3303Z 31MAR23) finishing opchat fsk cw and going into T600 traffic.

And a decoder of sorts for various modes;
