DISCLAIMER

DISCLAIMER: I have no association with UVB-76 station, neither do I have any clue what is the content I am relaying. I can only assure, that the signal is received on 4.625MHz AM-modulated 900km NW from supposed origin and retransmitted unaltered. In no way can I guarantee this service, nor be considered responsible of any content re-transmitted. The only purpose for this relay to exist is because lot of people who do not have equipment or are located too far from station seem to be interested about listening to it. Should the UVB-76 station- or transmission content owners feel violated in any way, please contact me at uvb76.repeater@gmail.com and we will work it out.

Note, that because of shortwave radio signal propagation specifics the station can be more or less reliably received from around 4pm to 6am GMT on summertime. It is almost 24h audible during the winter, with short "skip-zone" blank-out around 6pm GMT.

The USB feed is considered as main source of audio today, as the voice messages are much better audible there than on the AM stream. However, the buzzer sound from the AM stream is somewhat more pleasant to listen at, so both feeds are kept simultaneously.

HELP request about transmission dates deleted from Wikipedia

[EDIT: Found the deleted stuff from old revisions, so this is ok. However, I would still appreciate if all of you could send me your observations about transmission times!]

  1. Voice messages
    Voice messages from UVB-76 are very rare, and are usually given in Russian by a live, male voice and repeated. Around 20[7] such messages have been intercepted in over twenty years of (non-continuous) observation. Some well known examples of such messages include:

    * * At 2100 UTC on December 24, 1997: "Ya, UVB-76, 18008, BROMAL, Boris, Roman, Olga, Mikhail, Anna, Larisa, 742, 799, 14."[1][2][8][7]
    * * At 0418 UTC on December 9, 2002, a voice message was detected, but with extreme distortion (possibly as a result of the source being too close to the microphone head) that rendered comprehension very difficult.[citation needed] This broadcast has been partially translated as "UVB-76, UVB-76. 62691 IZAFET 3693 8270."[7]
    * * At 0757 UTC on February 21, 2006, another voice message was detected, but the speaking voice was highly distorted. The message's content was partially translated as: "75, 59, 75, 59, _, 39, 52, 53, 58, _, 5, 5, 2, 5, _, _, _, _, Konstantin, 1, 9, 0, 9, 0, 8, 9, 8, Tatiayna, Oksana, Anna, Elena, Pavel, Schuka, _, Konstantin, 8, 4, _, 9, 7, 5, 5, 9, Tatiayna, _, _, _, Anna, Larisa, Uliyana, 9, 4, 1, 4, 3, 4, 8"[9]
    * * At 1335 UTC on August 23, 2010: "UVB-76, UVB-76, 93, 882, NAIMINA, 74, 14, 35, 74, 9, 3, 8, 8, 2, Nikolai, Anna, Ivan, Mikhail, Ivan, Nikolai, Anna, 7, 4, 1, 4, 3, 5, 7, 4" (Recording of August 23rd transmission) [10]
    * * At 0654 UTC on August 25, 2010: "UVB-76. UVB-76. 38, 527. AKKRECIP, 36, 09, 55, 73".[citation needed]
    * * At 1153 UTC on August 25, 2010: "3, 8, 5, 2, 7, AKKRECIP, 3, 6, 0, 9, 5, 6, 7, 3".[citation needed]
