The Alarm

On May 14th 2019, it was discovered that the goose or OHVAT-98 was transmitting on it’s original frequency of 4770.00kHz until May 15th. On May 16th, a new signal was heard on 4770.00kHz which sounded similar to that of the air horn.  The channel marker transmitted sounds that sounded like an alarm which we have now named the Alarm marker.

This station is used for testing purposes like the air horn on 4020.00kHz and we have speculated this marker could be apart of the western military district as signal strengthen points to so.  Test counts and voice activity have been heard on this station.

First recording of the marker on 4770.00kHz


TDoa scans have shown that Alarm Marker might be transmitting somewhere near the Smolensk region or Belarus. Smolensk would make the most sense as that is where the goose and air horn transmit.
