Q4PZNWNO56KOPHGWWZEK64S This Is Collapse Out.
Last weekend a burst of four broadcasts on two short-wave channels caught the radio geeks ear and being one of those radio geeks I thought it interesting enough to write about them. On 10/14/2015 into 10/15/2015 the channels 8992.0 kHz and 11175.0 kHz lit up with the four messages recorded below. What makes these of interest are that these are the EAM (Emergency Action Message) channels and for the most part they remain rather dormant. This weekend though they were spun up with some interesting numbers station like activity. You can take a listen to the messages below and read the Russian site that I found talking about them as well.
1. COLLAPSE message one: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1hGyA2GR6HI
2. Collapse message Two: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1ETZ3l9fp0G
3. Collapse message Three: http://vocaroo.com/i/s03ZI6ui70LY
4. Четвертое сообщение было передано станцией “FLATTOP!” ( Еще одна станция которая не вещала в течение многих лет): http://vocaroo.com/i/s01smhgkyNDL
Now allegedly the last time that these were heard being used were a long time ago with sporadic calls being made by planes with no answer. So an actual EAM message is of interest to those of us paying attention to it. In this case I can elucidate some on the calls being made that were heard this weekend and add a bit of context. In the case of these messages, the timing plays a key role. It seems that this weekend Putin’s forces were making runs into Syria again and this may be the reason that this EAM channel was spun up. The call signs COLLAPSE, RING DOVE, and FLATTOP are all the bases making the EAM. The coded text you hear them uttering is just that, coded text, and it may be a frequency to tune to for encrypted comm’s or it may be just a word or two. This is the basis of what is happening here. It seems that whoever and wherever our personnel, likely in the air, were getting orders to perhaps avoid running into trouble.
That is just a supposition though…
Of course given that there has been a lot of action lately including Russian planes getting into our and others air space…
Keep an ear on those channels kids.. Shit is getting intense.
UPDATE: This code name was used before in 2008
2032z 25 Dec 08 11175.0 was active at 2027z with COLLAPSE (strong to good levels here) bcsting a 28-character EAM (Y23NIJ) preceding OFFUTT‘‘s 2029z HFGCS bcst of same. COLLAPSE was strong enough here to punch through OFFUTT’s good level bcst. Despite COLLAPSE’s signal strength on 11175.0 nothing was heard on 4724.0, 8992.0 or 15016.0
