S19 – Czech Man “Control” 000

There’s not much available information about S19.  Also known as the Czech Man “Control” numbers station, it’s format is likely similar or the same as S17.  The transcription of the partial message from The Conet Project shows it resembles later parts of the S17 message format.  Maybe it was the same station except with a man’s voice instead.

The ENIGMA Active Stations List V1.3 shows there is one variant S19a (888-018).  Perhaps it was given this variant ID for it’s “888” ID or if it was an ID for an S19 transmission that sent a message and not null traffic.  This variant seems to somehow be related to S17c, it could have been given that variant ID before ENIGMA realized it was actually an S19 ID.
