Typically E06 transmits on the hour or at the half hour, but may also start at any 5-minutes interval within an hour. The transmission is often repeated an hour later, or less commonly 30 minutes later, on a frequency that is either higher or lower by 1-3 MHz than the one on which the previous broadcast was made. In case traffic was sent, the two transmissions are often repeated also the next day at the same times and on the same frequencies.
The schedule ID may either:
- Stay the same all year long, and never change
- Stay the same all year long, and change every year
- Use a different ID for each month, and never change
- Change seasonally, different ID for each of those month sets:
(changing along with frequencies)
- January, February, November, December
- March, April, September, October
- May, June, July, August
10-15 minutes before a transmission, a several minutes long 1200 Hz test tone is emitted, followed by the ID of the upcoming transmission given once.
One schedule, on 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at 20:30 and the following day at 21:30, is very specific in operation. Its operation is only partially automatic - it is booted up manually, usually either two minutes early or late. The messages are non-random in appearance. The messages are re-used for 1-2 years, and usually there two texts alternating every a few months.
The testing procedure is also different to the one described above. It takes place an hour before the start of the transmission, and consists only of a repeated string of "111 111 111 00000", which ends abruptly.
