Preamble: NAS NAS NAS

A female or male voice beginning on the hour or half hour repeats this phonetically nineteen times.

 Message: QTC QTC QTC  NR8 NR8 NR8 GR92 GR92 GR92 EFSOH EFSOH ZMVXT ZMVXT QTFJZ QTFJZ.RA RA.

It is very interesting to see QTC in the message, which from the International    Q Code means "I have traffic for you." NR 8 is of similar interest. Although GR indicates a group count, the actual value is reversed, so 92 will be 29 groups. Similarly RA is the reverse form of AR, meaning "End of Transmission." All groups and letters are read phonetically using the stations own phonetic alphabet. If the transmission contains no traffic, Queen Robert Union is sent (QRU - I have nothing for you).

A live male operator with a heavy accent presents traffic in English. Again like the previous type, the International Phonetic Alphabet is not used, but a variation that is heavily laden with words from the 1950's International Phonetic Alphabet.

Description courtesy of ENIGMA group

No major changes to the schedule but we do have some new information concerning the transmitter site. Other changes include different 3-letter calls to those previously noted. The schedule is given below. all transmissions are daily although time lines are sometimes rather erratic. Some time ago we made attempts to find a definitive answer concerning the location/agency behind these transmissions Readers in Greece and several who visited the Greek Islands and Cyprus reported strong signals from this  station which is often weak in the U.K.

The peculiar use of reversed group counts suggests either Arabic or Hebrew connections. One contact strongly advised that we did not pursue our lines of enquiry and suggested we should not publish the location of the station describing the situation as too sensitive. However readers can make up their own mind. Information received at ENIGMA based on a number of directional fixes indicates that transmissions emanate from an area near Alexandria, Egypt. The DFs pinpoint the station on the coast near Alexandria. Comments welcome (including those from the Egyptian government, but please don't visit us at Chapel Street; it is only a mail forwarding centre.
