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.

Our own little Wikileaks (and the story of the dog)!

So far there have been relatively little material surfaced about what the number stations really look inside. There have been photos of the now-abandoned transmission site at Povarovo, some pictures of antenna fields and some inside stories of the guys serving at the radio units during their military service, all presented on the ever-lasting radioscanner.ru Buzzer thread.

Yesterday, however, the material surfaced at this very same forum what gives us a first-hand glance on the life and work of the UVB-76 station during year 2005!

The published material is what seems to be the logbook of the UVB-76 station at Povarovo covering the period of October 3, 2005 until December 7, 2005.
The guy who posted it to the forum claims, that they found it from the same abandoned building pictured everywhere with the dog in front.
The logbook does not seem to carry any labels of confidentiality or classified stamp (the red marking on front says "SAMPLE" and is meant to show how to fill the log), but that does not make it less interesting for the crowd interested in UVB-76 inside story!

The direct link to the page-by-page archive of this document can be found at:

Talking of dog, there is a entry on page 008, from October 4:






It reads: "18:30 Guard dog has put on place on post 173"

So, it looks like the famous last resident of the UVB-76 Povarovo station, The Dog, has entered the service on October 4, 2005.
