UVB-76 Locations

As it is known, the UVB-76 was moved from Povarovo (near Moscow) late 2010 and its new location remained a mystery for a while after that. The triangulation attempts did not give a very conclusive answer and picking the right site by Google Earth only was too much of searching a needle from haystack.

Thanx to the efforts of priyom.org team and information from long-time number station aficionado Ary Boender, there are now one well-documented and one less-documented location where the current UVB-76 transmitters are believed to operate. As always, nothing is certain and guaranteed, but the information so far seems plausable.

Big thanx to the priyom.org guys for figuring it out!

The coordinates for the sites are:

55°25'35"N 36°42'33"E 

Google has done a cool job of mapping out the large part of Russia for us before the iron curtain started to tighten up again, so we have an opportunity to take peek at the first site:

Ary Boender describes the location (Kerro Massiv, Leningradkaya Oblast) it at his wonderful Numbers and Oddities Magazine no. 200  as part of the 60'th communication hub codenamed Vulcan, servicing the Western Military District.

We do not have to leave our armchairs to get even more in-depth knowledge of the site, as Ary has been successful acquiring some materials describing the antenna setup:

According to Ary, the number of antennas totals to 30, including: 19 VGDSh units, 4 VGDShP units, 6 RGD units, 1 V-shaped antenna. All 23 horizontal dipoles (VGDSh), 4 (of 6) rhombic antennas (RGD) and 1 V-shaped antenna are suitable for 4625 kHz. The directional RGD antennas are beamed to Murmansk, Arkhangelsk and Moscow (2 antennas to each direction).

This site is mainly just a transmission site, so it is getting its content to transmit from the 60'th communication hub "Vulcan" located in St. Petersburgs one of the most beautiful districts. The feed is transmitted from hub either by phone lines or by radio (such as R-414S).

The antenna setup for the hub according to priyom.org collaborators is rather crowded (pictures courtesy of priyom.org):

Little is known about the second stated buzzer location at Naro Fominsk (55°25'35"N 36°42'33"E ), only that it is belonging to 69th Communication Hub.

As a sidenote, the newly found locations correlate quite nicely with the triangulation attempts few years ago. (The comments in italic below are left for historical purposes - there was indeed a suspicion of multiple transmission sites).

These are the first results of trying to position the UVB-76 transmitter. The results are somewhat surprising, as the station triangulates way closer to the Internet Repeater than UVB-76 original site used to be, yet there is no reasonable difference in signal strenght nor behavior. No conclusions can be drawn yet, as there are several possibilities:
- The station is using heavily directional pattern for transmission
- There are more than one transmitter and different ones have been spotted during triangulation.
While the new bearings arrive, just enjoy browsing the map! The red semi-transparent sectors can be eliminated by pressing the "sectors" button above the map.

If you want to add a similar triangulation page to your own site for whatever purposes, the script can be downloaded here:

The usage is quite simple, just search for the array named 'triangulations' inside the code and replace with the values you would like to use.

Just be sure you do not remove the credits for Chris Veness, and if you really feel the script to be useful, the credits to UVB-76.net would be nice, as well as the entry to the comments section here, where the particular triangulation can be seen! :)


  1. 59° 39.549'N
    30° 42.235'E

    Official "Voice of Russia" Transmitter.

    But think about this:

    In 2010 the former reported site Powarowo is abandoned during night and fog in just a few days.
    There are more than one eyewitness who seen the "evacuating".
    One of them can be seen on youtube talking about the Transmitter and the "evacuating" of Powarowo site.
    And another fact is:
    On September 2010 the buzzer stops for few days.
    Then after the transmit starts again, "Dance of the Little Swans" from Tchaikovsky's ballet Swan Lake was reportet as the first transmission. (Voice of Russia use this music very often)

    So just get one and one together...

    1. Why is that Google image in Estonian?

    2. It's disturbing that much, in this one for example, it was creepier than you think

  2. I think I've heard music on UVB-76 today 7:52 GMT -3.

    Question, I've heard that in 2010 the station on the map was abandoned, there is a small news documentary about 3 to 5 mins named "...the mystery of UVB-76" stating that.

    I was wondering if we have any new triangulation after that.

  3. Today at 0603 UTC it was quiet. The at 0604 UTC the signal went on again. Tried to see this in your "last 24 h data" but couldn't figure it out. /Katarina Sweden

  5. Today (yesterday actually, because now is 12:21 AM) 2013/08/21 04:28 I was making my "little" array for my receiver I turned it on, and I think I hear voices in the background of the buzzing, there was a male and a female, one was speaking in russian with accent, and other one was speaking fluent (probably native) russian, well maybe I just imagined that.

  7. eeeee donde escucho la radio ???? :3

    1. vayan arriba y den click en "AM" o "USB" con eso descargaran un archivo que pueden reproducir en su pc yo usé el VLC player no se si sirva en otros

  8. I have hear the UVB-76 today on 4625 KHz 15:04 UTC RST(Q) = 55 to 57 with QSB in USB that's the comfortable frequency ;) 73 de PD0MV
    Licensed Ham Radio Amateur

  9. Yo tambien vine por Dross,me atemoriza esa interferencia infinita, tambien descargue el audio y se reproduce por VLC player...

  10. Alguien Sabe Donde Darle Para Reproducir La Interferencia Esa Para Escucharla Continuamente Y En Vivo , En Am O Usb Es Solo Una Grabacion O Que Alguien Me Explique porfa xD saludos . ! y Si Vine Por Dross jajaja

  11. Chile - 16:35 pm - El zumbido intermitente aparte de estar en una tonalidad en " b " o " Si " (véase acordes de guitarra) ha disminuido de tono dando paso a un sonido de Helicóptero por unos 5 minutos... luego vuelve el zumbido, solo que ahora escucho entre zumbido y zumbido un leve sonido de Helicóptero.


  12. The abandoned UVB76 Tx site can be seen in these 5 pages here: http://englishrussia.com/2010/08/28/inside-the-mysterious-uvb-76-station/#more-17313


  13. jeje igual vine por Dross como lo puedo escuchar en vivo?

  14. lo de AM es solo una grabacion o es en vivo? no entiendo :c

    1. É uma transmissão ao vivo, live, mas com atrasos. Delays.

    2. É uma transmissão ao vivo, mas com atrasos. Live with delays.

  19. i heard a buzz and then the buzz continues with a higher pitch and lower volume for a second after the main buzz stops

  20. These are the real UVB Transmitters

    1 (old):
    60° 7'40.74"N

    2 (remote):

    1. Please give us the website for the live transmision. Thank you so much.

  21. esta en vivo el archivo de am que descargue?


  22. This live the am file you download ?

  23. Now I listen the interference

  24. 60°07'39.7"N 30°22'43.1"E!
    This is the UVB76 main transmitter site!

  25. Huh.
    I set up my own station now.
    Broadcasting at:


  26. In fact no matter if someone doesn't understand after that its up to other users that they will assist, so here it takes place. netflix account

  27. Live transmission:

  28. 12:10 UTC+1
    I heared footsteps (quite) and then the buzzers was be faster
    again some footsteps and the buzzers get the normal speed

    greets from

  29. Hola vine por dross, alguien ya estuve en la transmisión?
