FAV22 3881 CW 0725 UTC 26 April 2020
« on: April 26, 2020, 0822 UTC »
This is sort of weird.

The French intelligence agency's station, normally sends 4 or 5-letter encoded groups (as I remember it). This time they were sending s-l-o-w speed, IN THE CLEAR, normal French. Slow enough that I could copy it easily (except for the diacritical marks: é, è, ç, and the like). Turned on the CW decoder for a record of it and it indicated 7-8 WPM. It turns out that the decoder had the same trouble with the diacritical marks.

Transmission finished by 0733 UTC.

I think FAV22 is the French Military morse training facility - which would probably explain the slow speed and clear text.

There is some info here ... http://www.numbersoddities.nl/M51-profile.pdf

Your logging would match the noted Sunday schedule (assuming document still up to date).

Ok. Understand now. Thanks for the help, both of you.

CJ468 is correct - nothing more to say.

The French DGSE was known with its imaginary call 8BY (Enigma Designator M16).

Kind regards.
