2020 S9+ The strong signal 6306 AM Ru M talking caught my attention.
This is one of the Russian grandparents aka Sniper talking in a community circle at 3153 AM.
They play with nicknames like Raketa (misle), but they don't talk about war, but about reception and technique

Hey Kris,

Freebanding in Russia right now may be a risky prospect.

Even if one does not talk about the war.

I hope they are out in a deep rural area and mobile.

But a possible “ foot print” left by a specific radio may eventually let them find you, IF they are looking that hard.
