E25 – Rebeat

Nickname: Rebeat

Activity: Active

Emission Mode: AM or USB

Voice Summary: Woman’s voice believed to be automated. Has a very noticeable accent and pronunciation. Sometimes hard to understand.

Believed Country of Origin: Egypt

Station Summary: 

First reported in 2000. Originally used live voices read by males, then used a very unique automated woman. Errors are common in transmissions, from computer tones, to hearing the operators playing a computer game, to the transmission just screwing up in general (no music intro, the transmission cutting out, or just not happening at all). Music is usually from musician Umm Kulthum, but can vary. Needless to say, E25 is in dire need of component, consistent operators (and perhaps a better voice). Emits in AM and/or USB.

  • E25 has two variants E25a and E25b 

E25a

E25a is a variant of E25 that sends the interval music, then the call up, but no message after.

E25b

The Call up of E25a is transmitted in English, but sends the message in Arabic. First reported in 2007, but activity is unknown though could possibly be active. Possibly emits in AM and/or USB.
