XPA is a digital flavor of the Russian 7 operator. It utilizes a custom 17-tone MFSK mode.


XPA operates in regular schedules of three identical transmissions, spaced 20 minutes apart. The frequencies of the subsequent repeats usually decrease, sometimes increase, in most cases by about 1-2 MHz.

Message format

XPA messages consist of 5-digit groups. There is a 3-digit schedule ID associated with each message. The purpose of the first and third groups are unknown, but the second group is the group count minus three. The first digit of the first group is always zero.
