Notes on TU-95 Strategic bombers communications:

If the TU-95 CW markers are active its a indication that bombers are in the air and its possible to monitor USB frequencies. Every 20 minutes lasting for 2 minutes a single letter will be repeated by CW. Its always on the H+00, H+20, H+40 and normally hand set. Commonly marker W is heard probaly from Moscow Strategic and Long Range aviation headquarters. G marker possibly comes from Russian Ukrainka Air Base in Amur District in Far East Russia. Other undefined markers are Q, R and Z. C marker is used by TU-95 bombers used by Russian Navy from Moscow Naval HQ. Arkhangelsk Severomorsk naval base use S marker.

The bomber formations use  callsings. Known callsigns are: TRL5 – Spring TV6P, IZ2J and KFE4 – Summer 4ASU, QZ6Y and PUO7 – Autumn IWV4 – Winter. Three figure groups are used in messages, although is speculated that five figure groups are actually used.

The ground communications to aircraft using USB voice uses callsings such as NABOR, BALANS and KATOLIK that are fixed and are not affected by the seasonal changes.
