Station Summary

S02 was a station that had rare broadcasts and at one point was sent on a “date of the month” schedule.  It used to send messages on the 9th of every month at 19:30 UTC on 4740 kHz in 1994[2].  Even during its highest activity of traffic between January 1989 and March 1990 it was rarely heard.[1]

The numbers were read in Bulgarian and the interval music it played was “Il Silenzio” by Nino Rossi.  The station used to have a male voice at one point but also used a woman’s voice.  This station has not been heard since 1996.
