Lol once again I failed to list the freq, sorry JC, yes 8345. Oddly both main freqs have been fairly propagating lately, but the multipath has been brutal enough to make getting calls other than the repeated shore stations called a tough job.

A story with pics of the ship;

I presumed it was near Syria and the story seems to indicate its presence there in the past, as the rest of my catches seem to be from that region.

Russia is moving a lot of gear to Syria due the recent fighting between Turk and Syrian forces, this may explain the uptick in traffic heard lately.
This transport ship just passed the Bosporus on its way to Tartus;

Check out the antennae, cage dipoles, lots of hf vertical monopoles, crossed loops, etc. Mebbe an elint division aboard.

Reuters' monitoring of the Bosphorus since Feb. 28 shows Russia has sent five warships toward Syria within six days. That exceeds a usual pattern of one or two warships ships per week.

The Russian military announced the departure of the Admiral Grigorovich and Admiral Makarov frigates for Syria, but three other warships have followed unannounced.

One is the Orsk, a landing ship capable of carrying 20 tanks, 50 trucks or 45 armored personnel carries and up to 400 troops. The others - the Novocherkassk and the Caesar Kunikov - are landing ships that can carry over 300 troops, tanks and armor.

Turkey has responded by beefing up its escort protocol for Russian warships using the Bosphorus. Three Turkish patrol boats and a helicopter escorted the Russian frigates - such ships are usually accompanied by a single coast guard vessel.

this supports the increase in traffic copied lately

Yep, those two. Might try for naval air on 8816 and the command channels; 11000, 9145, and so on.

Well done! I think I copied this one but the multipath was horrific, it'd be in the noise one element and s5 the next. Noise floor was -128 dB down, sig was -100dB at times.
