E06 is operated by the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service
(SVR). For the current times and frequencies, refer to our Number Station
If more than one message is to be transmitted, then instead of
"00000", the transmission ID is spoken again for one minute, then
the standard message procedure continues.
The transmission ID usually changes either monthly, seasonally,
or yearly, though some schedules with the ID staying the same
throughout the schedule lifetime have been noted. Note that the
one-time pad number(?) in valid messages never repeats
digits already used in the transmission ID, and often the entire
string that consists of the transmission ID, the one-time pad
number(?) and the amount of groups contains no repeated
digits, like above.
Currently (July 2014) E06 has few long-time regular schedules,
and most of the transmissions are heard in short-living, one off
ones. E06's frequencies are changed either monthly or seasonally,
and normally re-used year by year. Frequencies currently (July
2014) being in use indicate operation in both Europe and in
E06 also operates schedules that are believed to serve training
purposes. This is due to manual operation of them, resulting in
early/late starts, and the messages always being 20 groups long,
non-random and repeated across many months. In the past they were
always keyed manually using a keypad, resulting in inconsistent
tempo of spoken numbers. It still happens sometimes, but since
April 2014, the numbers on some of these transmissions are sent
automatically just like on regular E06 transmissions, but still
The audio for E06 is fed from a computer running Windows 7,
which replaced previously used Windows XP in early 2014.
Occasionally the sounds of the said operating system can be heard
On 11 June 2014, E06 was heard operating in pure USB mode,
rather than its usual USB + carrier. However, it has not been heard
in this mode ever since.
