888800 // 22165 0AAEE GGKKN NXXZZ 8888

Note: A source informs me that the 8888 messages have long been suspected to be test messages. Apparently this msg format would occasionally be transmitted on the satellite system known as ISST and that the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Super High Frequency Satellite Terminal (ISST) operated from 1990 to approx 2006. Within that time frame, the 8888 messages were only heard on satellite and not broadcast on HF. The satellite channels have since been decommissioned.

Below was one of those messages which led monitors to believe that 8888 are test messages:
UUUF1 888041310ZISSTMAINTENANCETEST888

Furthermore, if we breakdown the 221650Z NOV 2022 888800 // 22165 0AAEE GGKKN NXXZZ 8888 msg, I am speculating that the 221650 portion corresponds to the UTC date/time group: 22 (day) 16:50 (time) as it coincides with when the msg was broadcast.
